The personalized tour by Ms. Cristina Brito was remarkably impressive even though there was a little drizzle which eventually tapered off. Inspite of being a Sunday and the usual places being closed, we had the luck of seeing a 1920's movie filming set, an opportune religious celebration procession and a taste of good sushi since the tapas restaurants were closed. We also had a conversation with a NATO guard on duty and of course picture taking. The elevator building in the center of town was a unique experience.
This was a very thorough and educational tour. The tour guide was very knowledeable of the history and culture of Lisbon and was familiar with all the nooks and crannies of this beautiful and quaint city. I advise anyone taking this tour to wear comfortable shoes and be prepared to walk, walk, walk. But well worth it!
I highly recommend this tour. Our tour guide was awesome - she took us everywhere, sights of Lisbon, wine tasting, and the tapas were fabulous, not to mention the views. We spent 7 fabulous hours together. I'd do it again tomorrow!!!
Our walking tour was fascinating and a wonderful introduction not only to the main sights in Lisbon, but to many little hidden areas that we never would have found on our own, like the Ginjean bar, St. Anthony's birthplace, Roman excavations, and the back streets up by the castle. We returned to some of our favorites in the week that we were there. The tapas bar was a special treat, with great views, delicious food, and a wonderful atmosphere. Our guide was a most knowledgeable and a very fun guide. We learned so much and had a great time also! I highly recommend this tour.
Our guide was a nice smart young lady but four solid hours of walking ending at a Restaurant on our own was exhausting. Maybe because we are all "middle aged" we all felt a slightly slower pace(often times our guide was over a block ahead) would have been great. Only one time did she wait for us to cross the street with her and the pace was so fast I really can't tell you more then three things of interest we saw. It was all a blur. I am a travel agent and would be very careful who I recommended this tour to.
Lots of walking which we enjoyed, having had a few days prior to the tour to do our own walking exploration of beautiful Lisboa. Guide was ok, nothing "wow" which we were expecting from reading other reviews. Perhaps it was a different guide. Nevertheless, it was a good overview of Lisbon It takes 6 hours so do take that into account if you have other plans for the day.
