We spent an awesome day at Lisbon despite the rain! Amaro was such a knowledgeable tour guide, always cracking a joke or two. Unfortunately it was raining throughout our experience but he kept on driving us safely, ensuring at all times that we didn't get wet, saw all the spots and had a good time. We would recommend this tour and Amaro any time!

Excellent choice to use this service, we had earphones that allowed us to hear the guide and choose the language to select, the efficient and very comfortable service allowed us to visit the stops we had set ourselves. Very happy with our choice
