Caravel on Wheels History and Video on a Tour
Caravel on Wheels is a Lisbon tour presented as an innovation in Lisbon tourism in 2016. New in Lisbon, Caravel on Wheels is a multimedia and video guided tour, that combines sightseeing and history and aims at making a difference in Lisbon tour activities and experiences.
Caravel on Wheels is a brand from Eduardo Martins &. C. Lda, a company with over 100 years of history, in the heart of Lisbon downtown – Chiado.
We are true believers that today we can absorb information through many media and that video has become key in our lives, so we asked ourselves…
Why not tell Lisbon’s history, through video, as we move along the city? Wouldn’t this be an amazing experience? And new in Lisbon? To watch videos about Lisbon’s history while on a tour around the city? To be able to see Lisbon on a city tour and the inside of many churches and museums without needing to hop-off the bus?
We believed we could make a great tour and Caravel on Wheels became Lisbon’s only sightseeing Historical Video Tour! An innovation in tourism in Lisbon.
Multimedia Bus inspired on a Caravel from the Age of Discoveries
We invested on a new system that provides each passenger with a tablet and we provide the earphones.
We made the most of our past careers in Marketing and Advertising and invested in top quality videos and contents about the city.
We found a new software partner that made it possible to have interactive maps and geo-localized video contents that are triggered automatically as we move along the city.
We decide to anchor this sightseeing tour new in Lisbon in Portugal’s most daring time in history – the Discoveries! And so we challenged a bus partner company to make an exclusive, custom-made caravel shaped bus for Caravel on Wheels.
Last but not least, we chose a unique route for our Lisbon tour, approved by Lisbon authorities that goes to Alfama, Mouraria, Chiado, through Lisbon narrow streets and as far as Belém.

Then, we made it accessible! We depart every day, every two hours, right from the city centre. And the tour is available in Portuguese, English, Spanish, French, German and Italian.
We hope you decide to join us and experience this new tour in Lisbon and that you will be as touched with Lisbon’s beauty and impressive history as we are ourselves. Enjoy!
