My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our tour of Lisbon. Our guide Nuno was incredibly knowledgeable and friendly, and his enthusiasm for the city and its history was infectious. Even though our tour was on Christmas Eve and there was some disruption to our itinerary because of holiday hour closures, Nuno was nevertheless able to give us a wonderful experience and was able to deftly navigate these issues. We saw a variety of churches and monuments, and also tried custard tarts and tasted wine. Throughout the tour, Nuno was able to share a lot of historical details and knowledge. Nuno even went the extra mile and helped us buy a phone card and took us to our lunch reservation after our tour was over. I would highly recommend Nuno and this tour.

Pickup point was very easy to find, and, thankfully, very near our hotel. Thelma, our guide, was great in all respects. Knowledgeable, professional, friendly, helpful, and quick to answer each of our questions. She was a terrific mother hen to all 7 of us little chicks.

I strongly recommend taking the small-group tour like we did. Vans can go where larger vehicles just cannot go because of narrow and winding streets in the central city.

Our guide Jaime was amazing! We were the only people with him that morning so it really was a private tour. The highlight for us was Belem and their famous pastry was insanely delish!

This was fun and our guide was excellent. The wine tasting at the end was not needed.
He took us all over Lisbon and let us get out and walk around take pictures. By far the best.
