We took this tour at the start of our visit to Lisbon so that we would get an overview of the city. Our guide Pedro was superb. He was friendly and full of knowledgeable enthusiasm for his home city. We were given a clear history of the area and major events which have shaped its development. A Portugese tart, cheese, ham and a drink were included making the whole thing not just very entertaining but great value for money. We would thoroughly recommend this tour.

This was an excellent walking tour of Lisbon. There is so much to see and we saw a lot in the time we had. Our guide, Sophia, was excellent and kept the group moving despite a late start due to one person arriving late. The tour includes some tasty Lisbon cuisine. A great way to experience Lisbon and determine where you want to spend more time.

I enjoyed the tour and the guide Sophia was very friendly and knowledgeable. The only reason I gave only 4 stars instead of 5 was because it was too long for me to walk on cobblestone streets with out anywhere to rest. I realize it was a walking tour but it would have been nice if when we stopped for the guide to speak that there might have been a couple places to sit for a little while while she was talking.

Our tour guide Helder was amazing!! Very informative with plenty of details, dates, facts about the country's history and knowledgeable. We walked for several hours in central Lisbon, the neighborhood of Alfama, as Helder described what we were seeing. Try to get him if you can!! Well worth it.

This tour was amazing. Informative, well paced, scenic, and educational. We loved learning about the city’s history and get to know more about the culture.
Our guide, Joana, (who works for an affiliated company w Viator), was superb.
She was knowledgeable, enthusiastic, lively, and so passionate about the town. She loves her job, it she’s, and it made the experience one that will be memorable.
This was one of the best tours we’ve ever been on, and highly recommend it!
