What a recommendation. Did this trip with brothers and sisters. Seen a lot of Lisbon and what a nice guide we had. He really took his time with us and was enthusiastic about telling us. We have been on the road longer than the 3 hours we paid for, but this was no problem either. The hills were easy to do because of the e-bikes. All in all, especially do it!

When I was looking at the tour saw pick up at hotel but when booking i didn't see i had to pay extra i just went for the first opiction and was not at pick up point but when I rang we where picked up at a charge

Nuno was very nice with us and gave us great explanations during the visit. In addition he was English and French speaker.

This round tour was really great! Very informative. Our guide Antonio was very attentive and kind. Highly recommend!

Just being yourself and your camera. Awesome way to see the City.
