Loved this tour. The guide was extremely knowledgeable and kept us smiling even though it was pouring rain. He went out of his way to find the person who had wandered off. The tour itself last for about 3 hours and we learnt a lot about Lisbon. Two tastings were also included in the tour.

Great tour with our knowledgeable and genial guide Helder. Although it was raining most of the time, we thoroughly enjoyed the informative and entertaining explanations provided. We had a lovely break for delicious cheese, sausage and wine and another for pastel de nata - delicious custard tarts. The tram ride was great too. Definitely recommended as a great introduction both to the history but also to the layout of Lisbon. I really liked that the group was small about 10 and we first introduced ourselves and could say what we were expecting from the tour. As a result, the ice was broken and everyone chatted easily. Thank you so much!

Tiago was an amazing tour guide. He was very knowledeable about Lisbon and provided very interesting details about all aspects of the city. Our group was only 4 people, so it was very personalized.
