English speaking tour with Pedro who was our helpful guide. Easy to follow guide and very friendly although did have a tendency to close his eyes when presenting his tour information which took a little time to get used to. Inclusive tram ride, custard tart, and nibbles at the end were great value for money! Gave us some good tips at the end of the tour on other things to see and do in Lisbon.

Absolutely fabulous! Our tour guide was superb, engaging, interesting and well trained for conveying the knowledge of this wonderful city in English -- not his language. Lisbon came alive for us because of this tour and there is no way that we would have known most of this stuff even though we had read guidebooks. Highest recommendation for this. Miguel rocked!!

This tour with Helder was absolutely fantastic. I've done a lot of these tours both in the UK and in other cities and this was as good as it gets. He brought the history of Lisbon alive and told us all sorts of tales I have shared with the rest of my family. Best thing I did in Lisbon.
