Loved this tour. Spent the day learning a lot about the history of wine within the nation and Sesimbra was the most beautiful place I had seen in a long time
This was a brilliant tour with the very wonderful Paulo who was great, he showed me and my hubby a part of Lisbon we may never have experienced. From the marmalade cheese crackers and port to the fantastic social centre for locals. We cannot thank him enough, he also directed us to a wonderful fado night at a local dining restaurant. So all in all we would highly recommend this tour, wear comfortable shoes and enjoy....
Can't wait to return

It was the highlight of the holiday and gave us a brilliant insight to city life and it's inhabitants . Paolo is highly reccomended !
Excellent tour with Paulo a very personable and knowledgeable guide.
this tour is a MUST! They should rename it " Stuff in Lisbon that no one else gets to see" because our Guide Margarita showed us places we never could have found on our own. Margarita was very knowlegable, the small group was nice too, you really got to know your fellow tourists. The only thing that was somewhat of a surprise is that we got "left" on the other side of the river, which turned out to be no problem but you should be aware that you do not end up where you start and it is a good jaunt back.. but you can enjoy a GREATmeal at an awesome fish place mostly frequented by locals and take the time to see the inside of an authentic old sailing ship that is now a museum. Loved this trip!
Great tour with a good sample of Portuguese food. Guide was knowledgeable and definatly knew the area. If you are looking to see the "big" tourist attractions, this is the wrong tour, but if you want to get more of a local flavor and see where locals eat and drink, this is a great tour. Also takes you to a couple hidden gems in the town not in any tour book. Also good as a way to get your general bearings in Old Lisbon. We used it as an "introduction" to Lisbon tour, and that worked out great to understanding the layout of the area.
Great tour just what we wanted. Explored and found some authentic bars and cafés. Plenty to eat and drink. Would highly recommend .
Because of the low season we were the only two tourists for this tour that day, but it didn't make it less exciting! Lots of great sightseeing, history and of course vine!
Just my wife and I , so it was a private tour. Our guide took us through all the back streets and showed us the areas normally not seen by tourist. A must tour when you first arrive.
Very interesting tour. It matched the description. The tour guide was excellent. Highly recommend others to take this tour.
A very enjoyable way to get your bearings, plus in a small group. My wife and I did this tour on our first day and it was great - Martha showed up some great places to visit and some great places for eating. Martha was very knowledgeable and answered our many questions.
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!
We were the only ones on the tour with Marta, a charming, engaging young woman. Marta took us all over Lisbon where we tasted the delicacies of Portugal. A really enjoyable walk, knowing we were going to eat and drink along the way. Had the teens with us, who did not like port, beer or green wine. Imagine that, even when I told them they could drink! Well, more for mom and dad! The final stop was a ferry ride to a seafood restaurant. Everything was planned out well and really fun. I recommend this tour highly as a great way to see the City (maybe plan for your first day as we did) and get good recommendations from a local.

As we had limited time in Lisbon we decided to do this Tour and it did not disappoint. Martha was very informative and knew her city very well. The walking tour combined with the food and wine tasting was excellent value for money. We mentioned to Martha that we would like to visit Fatima but we were very tied for time on the Sunday as members of our party had to get to the airport, she rang her company and arranged a "private" trip for us. We were collected at our hotel by Marten, driven to Fatima and again given an excellent guided tour, Marten certainly knew all about Fatima, was very friendly and took great care to answer all our questions. On the way back into the city he gave us a extra brief tour before leaving us back to our hotel. Wonderful. We as a group would highly recommend this company for value for money and excellent service.
