Having used Viator in Amsterdam and London in the past I did not hesitate to book 3 tours during our brief stop in Lisbon. The first two were superb, starting with a 4 hour city tour with a fluent and informative guide who gave excellent commentary and provide several well chosen photo-ops. Our second was avery full day to Obidos, Nazareth, Fatima and Batalha. Our charming, fluent and incredibly knowledgeable guide, Dorrita, made it first class experience. The third tour was NOT the charm. Lisbon by night and Fado was mostly a waste of time and money. The guide spoke very haltingly in English and spoke 3-4 times as much to the Portuguese customers as the English. There were no photo-ops and she failed to mention several key locations that we knew about from our first tour. The restaurant was in a very unattractive neighborhood and clearly had a different and much inferior menu for 'bus' people serving us a rubbery, overcooked piece of fish. The only good part was the entertainment. To cap it off we spent the better part of an hour travelling around the city getting passengers to their hotels and when it came to our turn the guide tried to get us to leave the bus when neither she or we were sure how close we were to our hotel so the driver could avoid going around a few blocks. This was 11:30 at night!
I look forward to your reply.

The fado show was great. The dinner was awful, there was on choice, the fish for the main course was a formed fillet, not a fish fillet. Would not recommend this tour to anyone.

This was way over-priced for what we received. The music and food were pleasant but only average. The night tour was just driving around and the event was a full hour shorter than described.

The Faro was amazing. However, for dinner there were no options provided and neither myself nor my brother eat seafood, which is what the main course was. When we asked for an alternative, it seemed like it was a big deal, although one was alternately provided. It was a great time, but I gave it only four stars for the seafood and the attitude.

This was a wonderful first night in Lisbon. The dinner was good and entertainment very professional and lovely to listen to. The bus tour on the way back was informative and pleasant. Tour guide made an effort to make sure we were near our hotel.

The Fado portion was good, the dinner was very average for the price and the city light tour was a repeat of many sites we saw on two other tours.

The tour was ok. What made the tour just ok? The food at dinner was horrible and if the audience made any noise at all during the performance the show would stop so it was marginal food and tons of "ssshhhhhhh" through out the evening. We actually departed another tour with some friends to go on this tour and both my husband and I agreed we wished we had stayed on the other tour.

This was a definite hiighlight of our visit. The tour of the city by night compliments the day tour as you now see the monuments lit up for the evening. The commentary was excellent. We really enjoyed the Fado show which was performed by 3 performers. In addition there was also a folk dance show in addition to the Fado music. The restaurant decor was an excellent choice and the meal was pleasantly well prepared and filling. We definitely recomment this experience to all first time visitors to Lisbon.
