This was the perfect tour for me. I was only in Lisbon for 2 nights and in the first place it gave me an overview of Lisbon and then the Fado element was superb. Great singing, great musicians and great food. So all that adds up to great value for money. Thank you. I will be being people to Lisbon in the future and will definitely use this tour. The guide was also terrific. So a great evening.
The group was 16 persons, but it was really a fantastic tour. The guide Claudia was highly professional. We'd visited a lot of interesting places, got a lot of information on the taste and traditions of Portugals. It was really a walk tour in one of the beautiful part of Lisbon.
We were in Lisbon for four days, and this tour gave us some good insights as to where to go for meals while in town. Nadia was informative and engaging, and she made us feel very welcome in her town. We sampled some excellent food and wine, while strolling through the Chiado district at a leisurely pace. The tour doesn't offer a large quantity of food, so we were still hungry for dinner afterwards, but no complaints. We left with a greater appreciation for the local fare.
Our tour guide was fantastic. She was knowledge about geology (important in Lisbon, history, art and foods at a deep level.
Goncalo our guide was great. Lisbon has steep hills and many cobblestones. This was a great way to see all of the central area and save your feet! Tasted all the Portuguese classics and got to see beautiful vantage points. Traffic was a little crazy that day but Goncalo paid attention to safety and was never an issue. I highly recommend this tour.
I really enjoyed this tour. It gave a great insight to Lisbon and its history. It also was very informative of the different foods and wines of the different regions. I would do this tour again.
Excellent way to see Lisbon especially if short of time. Tour guide was great.
We arrived in Lisbon only an hour before our tour was due to start so were thrilled when Marta found US, wandering about, hoping that we had managed to find the right monument for meeting. Her English is fabulous and she loves her subject, which made for a warm and fun experience. In addition to information along the way she made sure to cater to individual interests, recommending restaurants and bars as well as the bi-weekly flea market to my shopping mad daughter. Although the tour was supposed to finish at 7.30pm, we were all still laughing and talking well past 10pm and I cannot recommend this tour enough!
would highly recommend this tour for an introduction to portuguese, more particularly from lisbon, food. the tour guide was very knowledgeable and helpful plus along the way, insider tips re lisbon were shared. we were also fortunate that the group that toured with us were great companions, guess the tour itself attracts foodies.
This was a highlight of our trip. The guides were extremely helpful and safety conscience. We went to places would would have never found or never could have walked there. We traveled on the roads, with cars, streetcars etc. up steep hills, and down. It was quite easy to control the segway. My husband has major balance issues, and finds the segway compensates for that, and he was able to ride with ease. He said it is better than walking. The tasting component was terrific. We had foods, deserts, wines and liquors. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Lisbon.
We took this tour on our first full day in Lisbon and since our trip focus was on food, this was perfect! Not only did we have the opportunity to taste some of the iconic foods of Lisbon, but had an excellent tour of the old city. Martha was an extremely knowledgeable tour guide, very engaging and friendly. I recommend this to anyone wanting an insight into Lisbon through the story of its food.
This trip was great! It is recommended to do it on the first day in Lisbon, as from which you learnt where to get the good food and what is must try.
Fantastic tour! Segway really is the best way to experience this city with it steep hills and narrow streets. Out tour guide, named Pace, was excellent. As first time Segway users he really put us at ease with the machine and gave a comprehensive training course prior to setting off on the tour. Throughout the entire tour Pace was friendly, funny and very knowledgable about the area. The "delicious tour" allowed us to experience sights, sounds, tastes and incredible panoramic views of Lisbon not accessible by regular tour bus. By the end of the tour you feel more comfortable on the segway than you do on your own two feet! :) Overall it was an excellent experience and we'll be looking to book Segway tours for every new destination we visit.
It was a very nice night. We decided to do this tour our first day and it was a great idea. The tour drove us around Lisbon and from that we were able to decide where we would like to go and see on our own throughout our stay. Ending the night at the Fado show and dinner was the perfect ending to our first night.
This was an excellent tour and a great way to get acqainted with the city. Our tour guides were Paulo and Marta and they were very knowledgable and answered all our questions. There is indeed alot of walking so be prepared and allow extra time as our 4 hour tour turned into like 7 hours. I am not complaining though as we had a great group of travelers who were as enthusiatic as we were.The wine and cheese and food tastings were excellent and the first shop we stopped off at we revisited later and wound up taking a suitcase full of cheese and wine back to the states! They vacccum packed it all and were very resaonably priced. My only recommendation would be for a few more stops, a big guy like me isnt used to wallking 7 hours and a few more rest slash wine breaks could have been in order.This was the perfect introdcution to the citys main areas and I would highy recommend this to any first timers to Lisbon! Our tour concluded with a final appetizer/wine/cheese stop at this old Moroccan style restaurant where we all sat down and recapped the events of the day. Our hosts were most congenial and knowledgable and they made this tour special for us!
