The Guide 'Miguel' had a great command of the English language and his knowledge of Portuguese history was truly amazing. We strolled to many sites of interest getting a full explanation of each one. We stopped off for the infamous pastel de nata custart tart as well as a tram ride to Alfama Moorish district and finished off with cheese and wine. Excellent value for money, wouldnt hesitate to do something similar again. Miguel was also able to give us tips on how to get to other places we had earmarked for our city break. This was a great way to immediately get acquainted with Lisbon on what was a very short break for our small group from the UK

Our guide was Sofia who was very enthusiastic and really seemed to enjoy her work. We were a small group of 4 and the tour was well paced with plenty of stops for photo's.

Any one doing this tour will learn a lot more about Lisbon than reading a guide book.

Very personal guided walking tour. Helder was a great tour guide showing us around. He gave his best about what we need to know and experience in Lisbon. This tour is very enjoyable though a little bit tiring walking on a hilly part but worth it. A must-do in Lisbon. Thank you Viator for including this in your tours!

A really well paced and enjoyable tour. we walked on our very first ever holiday organised tour with Margeride may have spelt her name wrong sorry and she was wonderful. Kept the pace changing, kept the sights changing and made us appreciate the whole of the city from both sides, without us really noticing we had gone up and down both sides of the city and walked over 18,000 steps. We finished feeling great with a stop for a quick Ginjihna.
If you want to see Lisbon and not lose a whole day, but get ideas on other places to see while staying it is ideal.
We are back in Lisbon in December and are looking to book a longer tour now we have the bug, so thanks to viator for giving us such a great experience.

Wonderful, informative. Not too difficult. Margarida was the best guide I've ever had. Do it when you first arrive and you'll be set to navigate yourself after.
