I would highly recommend this tour- a great way to begin your trip to Lisbon. We did the tour on our first evening in Lisbon- a fantastic way to get your bearings, whilst sampling some local food and quite a few drinks too! Our guide Sofia was amazing- so kind and friendly as well as interesting and full of great tips and recommendations for the rest of the trip. Sofia led us to so many hidden gems that you would just walk by if you did not have the information from a local. We had a lovely small group of 6- it was very relaxed and fun and we all went for drinks afterwards. This tour is a must do and an excellent way to start your trip. 10/10

Fabulous tour! Did this 2 hours after arriving in Lisbon which turned out to be a great move. Lovely group of German/USA/UK peeps we had a blast!! Tried a good variety of wines and foods across a wide range of establishments, many of which we'd never have experienced or even found by ourselves. The tour was well thought through and the guides were very knowledgable and über friendly. We ended the tour in a local social club where jugs of vino appeared frequently. Our group were so bonded by this stage that we carried on ourselves and found some more bars under our own steam, no one wanted the night to end!! Highly recommend this tour as soon as you arrive in Lisbon to get the party started in style!
