Great tour! We had a smiling, patient and knowledgeable tour guide in Joanna Mateus who walked us through essential sights and sounds of Lisbon for 3 hours and did a great job of it. It gave a great insight into what we wanted to do during our stay in Lisbon. Highly recommended.

Claudia was our guide and was wonderful. Though the day started out raining, the outside tour was still wonderful. We had a small group and she was able to take us all over the city for an overview. Definitely would recommend this as one of your first experiences in Lisbon to get to know the city. The wine tasting and tapas were great too!

Our guide Tiago was great! I felt very lucky to have him as our guide. He is very educated and has a background in architecture and is very interested in and passionate about the design of the city and the past, present and future of Lisbon. He was thoughtful, funny, respectful and engaging. I felt we were in very good hands with Tiago as our guide. It is a great intro tour to Lisbon as we walked through the major neighborhoods of central Lisbon and took a trolly ride together into the Alfama neighborhood.

This is the second time I have taken this tour, Last year with my husband and this year with my daughter. Both times it was great. I would take it again if I can get my son to go with me next time! Christina was sooooo good. She gave us so much information and showed us several places to go that were not as touristy and that locals choose to go. Loved it!

We were a small group of four and felt very privileged to have Joana our extremely knowledgeable local guide to take us on this very interesting tour. She was very captivating with her information. We did two walking tours in Lisbon and I enjoyed this one the best from start to finish. We got a lot for our money and went back to several of the places visited on the tour. Please do not hesitate in taking this tour, you will not get better. This tour is best done at beginning of your stay as it gives you good orientation of the city which is easily walked round. We LOVED Lisbon and will definetly visit in the future. Thankyou Joana and Viator
