This tour was excellent. Paolo, our guide was so knowlegable and enthusiastic and spoke better English than we did. The group was small enough for every one to hear, ask questions and share the experience. It would be very useful to people staying in Lisbon as Paolo pointed out good types of places to eat(including hostels) and gave lots of tips on travelling in the city. Sadly we were on a cruise ship and left the same day. The tastings were delicious and and added an extra dimension, as we were told about the life style of the people. We covered the history and how this influenced the developement of the city. It was fascinating. Value for money, I should say so. We booked a three hour tour, it began at 10.30am and ended at 4.00pm. If you get Paolo cancel the rest of the day,but you will be armed with enough information to make the rest of your stay fabulous
My group and I really enjoyed the walking tour and would definitely recommend others to take this tour. Our guide was really good and well informed. Excellent.
Did you ever visit a new town and wished you had a good friend there who knew all the good places and who would take you there? That is exactly how we felt walking around with wonderful Margerida on the food and wine tasting tour. We visited Lisbon with a group of colleagues and really enjoyed this tour. We saw the best places and heard the best stories and tasted the best foods and wines. I can really recommend this tour to everybody and next time I visit a town, for sure I will try to find a tour like this! Thank Margerida, for being such a wonderful guide!
It was our fourth visit to Lisbon and we know the city reasonably well. However, the guide of our tour, Paulo, managed to provide a lot of interesting and useful information and led us to areas we did not know about. He had a deep knowledge of the city and its history, was very pleasant and had very good communication skills. His English was perfect. We really enjoyed the tour and will recommend it to our friends traveling to Lisbon.
We loved our walking tour, it was superbly guided by Sophia and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend. The only bit that could be missed is the grocery/fish market due to the area and that it was nearly closing, but it was probably a route to another area.This is a great way to get a feel for the city and its people, and of course a little of its food and wine!
Now this was amazing with Margaurite. The best ever tour. And the treats and drinks were awesome. She is our girl and you should ask for her in the future for a tour. Thanks so much. Best value ever. Do early in visit. Audrey and Allan
OMG it was GREAT! The tour guide Martha was awesome. It was not your traditional city tour. Good thing about it, we were the only two that has signed up.....it was very personal. She was knowledgeable, entertained questions, gave directions, suggestions, the history of Lisbon, how Liberty Ave got its name, the Spanish Kings, etc. The food was fabulous! Please please taste the miniature custard pies they are to die for. I forgot the name of the lil triangle things we ate after the ferry ride but they are delicious. We plan on going back again. Wear your walking shoes....
It was our first tour in Lisboa. Joanna, our tour guide, made it welcoming and informative. We visited places in the city that we would never see without her. Great food tasting as well.
The tour was very well run and Paolo the guide was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic toward directing the small group. There were a lot of questions being asked with no relevance to the tour that were entertained - and wasted a long period of time (making the tour over 5 hours in length), and made the end of the tour seem rushed.
Martha was very good and relayed alot of interesting information. Our group was very mixed in terms of ages and nationalities - but still we were all able to appreciate the Portugese culture. The food samples were nice and culturally appropriate. Was a nice way to spend my last day in Lisbon as it also meant that we went off the tourist track. Highly recommend this tour. MJ (Australia)
We really liked this half day walking tour of Lisbon and the several food tastings as we walked around. We walked through several neighborhoods and then took the commuter ferry across the river. Our food tastings were a small coffeeshop for local neighborhood residents, a typical Portuguese shop with tastings of cheese and port wine, and a seafood restaurant across the river. They were all good examples of Portuguese cuisine, although they are not meal-sized portions. Our guide was very friendly and spoke good English as he had lived in London for several years.
We had a great tour, it was very interesting to go down the back streets. At the end we went on the Ferry with not too much to see on the other side. This was a waste of time, as all we did was look back at the side we came from and had something to eat...But I must say it was a good day.Bye the way it took us over four hours, not 2.5 hours as advertised, but I slept that night.
Wonderful walking tour! Martha was so informative and interesting in her facts about Lisbon's history. I wished the food was better at lunch, though. We felt a better restaurant could have been chosen to represent Portugal's cuisine. If you put food and wine tastings in the title then the tour should highlight the food and wine.
An interesting insight into the "real" Lisbon. We were shown the streets people live in, shop in and work in rather than the "tourist" Lisbon. Suggest this tour coupled with a walking tour of the Lisbon "Tourist" sights is a great combination
Overall a really interesting experience. We visited areas of Lisbon and different historic buildings, which we would not have normally known about without our guide. Our guide was very knowledgeable and spoke perfect English. This tour involves a lot of walking and would not be suitable for anyone who has isn't quite fit!
We did expect the food tastings to be more substantial and were slightly disappointed about this aspect. However, the final seafood destination was really lovely and the view across the Lisbon skyline was worth the trip, despite the driving rain!
