My friend and I booked this tour in advance of our week in Lisbon and were very much looking forward to it. While we were there we also went on another tour run by the hostel we were staying at. Compared to the hostel-run tour this was unimpressive. It took us to all the places specified but the whole thing felt a bit like a tour for the sake of taking photos, We didn't get told much about why we were being taken to each place or about the history of the region. Some of the places were nice (I enjoyed the fish market, the wine tasting and the chance to have some free time to look around one of the small local towns) but at other places it felt like we got let out of the van to take photos and then loaded back on like it was a school trip. The guides were friendly but it felt like they were just 'doing their job' rather than the guide for the other tour we went on who was obviously excited about showing off the area.
All in all, this tour is an ok way to get out of the city for a day but didn't leave us feeling like we 'knew' the area any more than when we left.
