This tour was amazing!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2014

This is the best way to see hilly, spread-out Lisbon! Having the 48-hour ticket also allowed us to take the famous Tram 28 from the beautiful (a la Buenos Aires) cemetery, which was a highlight. It was definitely a plus to have tickets beforehand so we could just hop on once we found the nearest stop with the help of our hotel concierge.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2014

Everything went well. The tour bus was always regular and drivers were friendly

5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2014

We have a good time sitting in the Bus for the entire trip and listening to the audio which is vey informative. We get to see all the attractions under this Tour without having to walk much. This is a must if anyone were to visit Lisbon.
