Andre Neco was most amazing. He gave us a wonderful tour without jamming a million dates into us. He took us out for Birthday wine and gave us great recommendations for eating out. We had a great time at Bastardos. Enjoyed the cherry liquor and ate the cherry. The tour was full of useful facts and information. Give this guy a raise.

This walk and talk was excellent, the guide - Sofia - was knowledgable and entertaining. Although we were in a largish group I felt as though we got personal attention. Highly recommended. Guy T.

Our tour guide, Joana M., was a wonderful ambassador for Lisbon. The tour is an excellent introduction to this charming city and includes some snacks as well as a thrilling tram ride up to the Alfama area. Wear good walking shoes as there are some hills. Thank you, Joana, for a lovely and informative morning.

Went on a 3-hour city walking tour with Inside Lisbon booked online with Viator on our first full day in the city. Our tour guide was Miguel who was great, well informed and very personable. He filled us in with historical and cultural background, plus lots of less well known facts about the city's monuments and history. Miguel packed a lot in the 3-plus hours, including a tram ride, visit to the cathedral and nearby viewpoint, pastel de nata tasting local speciality custard pastry and a visit to a cheese shop for a glass of wine and cheese/meat sampling - all included in the tour price. Highly recommended if you want to find out about the city from a local expert. We also dined out on some of the restaurant recommendations our guide passed on to our small group - thanks Miguel, we had some lovely meals out !!
