Very pleased with this tour. Tour guide knew his material, answered all our questions, and made the trip stress free. We learned about the foods, the people, and the spirit of Lisbon Yes, and the places we went to see. The difference is in such a short period he brought his city to life and gave us the best of it. Have traveled a great deal would recommend this guide doing this tour.

This tour was great. Except one thing - we did not spent enough time in Porto as was promised. Instead we traveled to Santiago de Compastelo Spain. I preferred to stay in Porto. I believe that Viator should change the description of that.
Our guide Ana is very knowledgeable. She gave us a lot of very interesting information.

OUR GUIDE JOANNA WAS EXCELLENT and MUCH TO MY DELIGHT WE VISITED SAN T AGO WHICH WASNT LISTED ON YOUR ITINERARY BUT WE WERE TOLD IT HAD BEEN CHANGED FOR 2 YEARS. VERY IMPRESSED. I WILL DEFINATLEY DO ANOTHER ONE.

Portugal was very interesting, full of beauty and history. I would definitely recommend this tour. I was very disappointed with our guide, and that we had two people that spoke Spanish and two that spoke Portuguese. It was very annoying to have to listen in three languages on an English speaking tour. It made it very difficult to comprehend what she was telling us, as her English was difficult. She did not introduce us or suggest seat rotating.

Interessante, mas muito corrido. Uma maratona. Merece revisão da validade de algumas paradas.
