Every city looks it's best at night and Lisbon is no exception. We didn't realize it when we booked, but this is a private tour. It was just the 4 of us and an excellent, knowledgeable guide. It was extremely nice not to be rushed through. Just a leisurely tour at your pace.

This is an absolutely must-do tour. The Lisbon by Night tour was terrific, but I have to admit that the highlight for us was the opportunity to experience a Fado.

This was a definite hiighlight of our visit. The tour of the city by night compliments the day tour as you now see the monuments lit up for the evening. The commentary was excellent. We really enjoyed the Fado show which was performed by 3 performers. In addition there was also a folk dance show in addition to the Fado music. The restaurant decor was an excellent choice and the meal was pleasantly well prepared and filling. We definitely recomment this experience to all first time visitors to Lisbon.

Very tasty food served in the Fado restaurant and -above all- excellent the Fado music and dancers. Fado music is so nice and charming as the Tango for Argentina (I love BOTH).
What was not so brillant was the your guide speaking about Lisbon at night, it was a little boring and almost he did not allow any question

We thoroughly enjoyed our "by night" tour. Our guide was enthusiastic, articulate, interesting, and well informed -- a pleasure to be with. He showed us so much in about 4 1/2 hours -- more than we expected. Our only negative was that the SUV he was driving had dark tinted side windows, and it was very difficult to see out at night. My husband and I took turns riding in the front seat where we could see out much better. But we would recommend this particular guide to any Lisbon visitors who wish to experience that lovely and historic city after dark.

The Fado portion was good, the dinner was very average for the price and the city light tour was a repeat of many sites we saw on two other tours.

They pick up us at the Hotel but didn't take us back. We had to take a taxi.

The tour was ok. What made the tour just ok? The food at dinner was horrible and if the audience made any noise at all during the performance the show would stop so it was marginal food and tons of "ssshhhhhhh" through out the evening. We actually departed another tour with some friends to go on this tour and both my husband and I agreed we wished we had stayed on the other tour.

The bus pick up and return service was good. The restaurant was not very good - food quality was below average and they had us packed in there so tight we could hardly turn. Their tables were also very small.

This was not such a great tour. The tour guide did not like her job you can obviously tell. Everything was rushed. It was as if they got your money already, so they don't really care.

Don't even bother. The tour operators while friendly were completely disorganized. The tour consisted of driving around in the coach passing by the sites mentioned at a speed where you could barely get a view let alone any pictures. If you're looking to get pictures of the sites on this tour, keep your camera in its case, as I mentioned you DRIVE by the sites, you will not leave the coach until you reach the restaurant. The restaurant charming, staff and performers put allot of effort into the evening but the food and production line feel left me feeling like I was being rushed. All in all the value just isn't in this tour. If you want a driving tour of the city, you can hire a taxi and get the same result at a fraction of the cost. If you want a more enjoyable Fado experience, ask your hotel for a location that locals frequent, not a location the bus and boat loads go to. Viator, please adjust your description of the tour, had I known I would not get off the coach to see the sites I would have signed up for a different tour. I am seriously disappointed, not in the money spent but the time Ive lost on this tour when I could have spent it on something more memorable.

For the price of this tour, the food left a lot to be desired and the Fado singers were not very good. It would be OK at 14 the price.

Lack of concern on clients, the car air conditioning was shut off because the tour guide did not want it on. No hotel pick up provided as inscribed on the voucher and on the Viator add for the particular activity.

The short sightseeing tour was only via bus, no photo opportunities, the food in the restaurant was bad.

Thought this was a big waste of money. The bus driver didn't even slow down long enough to take pictures. The restaurant food was only so-so, with no choices. Bus driver had to translate into too many languages.
