Excellent way to see Lisbon. 100 recommend this tour.

This was without a doubt one of our favorite tours of the whole cruise. Our driver Dan was waiting for us when we departed the ship and spent the better part of 4 hours even though it was suppose to be a 3 hour tour taking us to all the highlights of the city of Lisbon. He made the trip so interesting, and we learned so much about Lisbon and Portugal from him. His knowledge of the history of the city was incredible. He made our experience well worthwhile, and he was fun to be with!! We would recommend this tour to anyone coming to Lisbon. We had a PERFECT day. Thanks again Dan. Bonnie and Dick McAtee

Best way to see Lisbon! Daniel was very knowledgable, fun, and a safe driver.

We felt like rock stars as we drove through the streets of Lisbon. Very cool. Our guide was young, informative, and took us all over the city. We saw many aspects of the city, including sections that one would never see on a traditional tour. We were picked up at the port which was a great convenience. Viator needs to set this up in other cities.

Daniel knew all the facts and figures. It was a very special feeling to ride the bike and have so many other tourist taking pictures of us as well. This is really an unique way to explore Lisbon. We combined several Viator tours and it turned out to have been a very good combination and mixture to get a feel and inside of Lisbon. Thank you Daniel. You are a good and careful driver and it was a great and cool experience!! We highly recommend this tour to everyone who wants to have a special way of touring a city! Lisa and Patty

Amazing day made all the more enjoyable by our equally amazing guide and driver, Daniel. The best and most exciting way to see all the little laneways and nooks and crannies of Lisbon in 1 day. Very comfortable bike and side care and extremely safe. We thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our full day tour and would thoroughly recommend it to anyone. Thanks a lot Daniel and well done.

Just got back from a wonderful cruise and had an overnite stop in Lisbon. Took this tour and it was the icing on the cake. Daniel was the best guide ever, I learned more in 4 hours that night than if I had stayed for days on my own. My husband is 70 and I am 64 and we recommend this tour to everyone...Thanks Daniel
for a wonderful tour and end of our vacation.!!!!

We had an absolutely terrific afternoon tour. The city is beautiful, and the perspective from the fab bike and sidecar is so different- it totally made the day for us.
Daniel is without doubt the star of the tour- he really enthuses about the whole city, he relishes relaying all the history to his guests and seems to really enjoy his work - lucky chap!!
A really excellent tour- well worth the money and we would love to do it again
