Great experience with a great guide! Fun, informational and relaxed at same time. The guide made fun adults and for our 12 year old daughter - and that means a lot! Enjoyed very much - worth every penny you pay. I’ll use it again, if I’ll need a layover tour in Lisbon. Thanks :)

We were able to see more in one day than in our own. Be prepared for a long day and a lot of walking. Our guide was very knowledgeable and accommodating. We were picked up at our Airbnb. Very convenient.

We had a wonderful experience! Lisbon is a Beautiful City. We saw all that we needed to see. My headphones worked fine, and I heard everything in English. It was a nice Birthday treat.

Elisabete was a fantastic tour guide. She was very knowledgeable, flexible, and made our tour worthwhile. So glad we booked!
