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!

There are relatively large number of free entry attractions. The transportation is free and unlimited for buses, trams and metro.

The guide was very nice and informative. A fun way to wizz around the city with kids.
