This is a very good tour. It included a old-style tram ride to the upper part of the city, winding its way through narrow streets. A wonderful view could then be enjoyed. It also included a glass of local wine, accompanied by cheeses. Our guide was very knowledgeable, with perfect English, and good historical knowledge, She painted a vivid picture of times past and present. Very good. I enjoyed it immensely.

I forgot our tour guides's name, but he was excellent! He gave us great tips for where to eat, how to get to Sintra, best views of the city, etc. It was a great way to see all the different parts of Lisbon. Would highly recommend taking this tour on day 1 of your visit.

Our guide took us to the dark side of Lisbon first, a very dark side indeed. She explained the history of it, but didnt excuse it. Perfect.

After that she took us to all the places youd want. That was a good three hours. But only if you can walk a bit, uphill sometimes.

Very much recommend

Terrific guided tour by a very enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide, Tiago. I was visiting Lisbon with my three young adult children and they all thoroughly enjoyed the tour which was very entertaining, informative and varied. We especially appreciated Tiagos local knowledge in finding the best viewpoints and brining us to sample local specialities!

We had a very interesting and informative walking tour with Pedro who was extremely knowledgeable and proud of his city Lisbon. We really got a good feel for the city and saw places we wanted to investigate on our own latter. For morning tea we stopped and had a pastel de nata which was included in the tour, we also ended the tour with a glass of wine with cheese bread and salami also part of the price. This tour was extremely good value for 18 euros and recommend that it be undertaken as soon as you get to Lisbon. I also recommend you ask for Pedro. Every question was answered comprehensively. Pedro also provided advice at the end of the trip on places to go based on your individual interests.
