This tour was amazing. Informative, well paced, scenic, and educational. We loved learning about the city’s history and get to know more about the culture.
Our guide, Joana, (who works for an affiliated company w Viator), was superb.
She was knowledgeable, enthusiastic, lively, and so passionate about the town. She loves her job, it she’s, and it made the experience one that will be memorable.
This was one of the best tours we’ve ever been on, and highly recommend it!

We loved our walking tour!! Vivacious, fun, great sense of humor, uplifting spirit, knowledgeable, and she took us to places we wouldn't have otherwise seen. The worst is that we aren't sure of her name!!!! Carolina?? We've waited too long to write our review.

Regardless, we loved the Alfama and lower Lisbon areas that we mostly covered with views, churches, and even a little snack at a charming, local area. She also showed us where to shop for quality goods but also where local women made their own products.

While I can visualize where we went and the route we took, unfortunately I can't name them completely except to say that we loved every minute of this tour.

This was an amazing way to be introduced to the rich history of the city for a short period. My husband and I had a long layover in Lisbon and we joined Helder's group for the 3 hours walking tour with pastel de nata trying and that came out as the best possible decision. Helder is the best tour guide you could wish for. His passion for his country and history kept us entertained and motivated making our trip memorable. He advised us on the best locations and at what time to visit in order for us to get the most out our stay and went the extra mile to ensure we felt comfortable and cared for. Helder recommended us the best local seafood restaurant and we will be back!

An absolute must. Madelina was so informative and entertaining during the tour. She took great care of the group. I took this tour 4 hours into arriving in Lisbon it was a great way to get my bearings. We walked around Rossio, Chiado, and Alfama. We stopped at a really cute little café in Alfama to have a beverage and tapas.
