Out Guide, Tiago, was great! He was very kind and accommodating with our large family of 3 children. He made us feel very comfortable. The van was impeccably clean. Overall, it was a great day!!!
This trip was the very best way to see Lisbon that I can imagine. Our Driver, Luis, took us to historical and cultural sites: town squares, churches, plazas, parks, statues and historical sites. We ate local foods, drank local drinks, and enjoyed a full morning of sightseeing. Luis knew enough about each site to make it informative and often gave us time to explore the places a bit on our own, so we never felt like we were being led about. I highly recommend this tour as a way to start your trip.
Great tour to get acquainted with the city. Very timely pick-up and comfortable car.
We have used Viator in many countries and they exceeded our expectations again. Our guide in Lisbon was great, friendly and extremely informative. We only had one day to spend in Lisbon so it really was the way to go! Thanks again for a truly memorable trip!
Great tour and guide. We highly recommend this tour for a great overview of Lisbon.
I think we hit all of the high spots.
This was a perfect tour to become acquainted with Lisbon. Our guide, Luis, was perceptive, professional and a delight to be with. He took us to the sights listed in the tour before the crowds arrived and suggested others. His knowledge of history was remarkable. I would definitely recommend this tour and this guide.
This was a perfect fit for us. We were staying 5 days in Lisbon, our first visit to this great city. The half-day tour gave us good sense of location, history, and flavor of Lisbon. Our guide, Paulo, was terrific. He was knowledgeable, experienced, and a great person. We drove in comfort, learned a lot about the history of Lisbon, and had a wonderful experience. We would highly recommend Paulo to everyone who wants this kind of tour.
Our guide was excellent! Very personable and knowledgeable. Excellent driver. Did not rush us. Gave us lots of good advice. Picked us up at ship on time and dropped us at hotel after tour. Very convenient, We upgraded to a luxury car but it was still very inexpensive for an excellent half day tour with a great guide. This was so much better than the Windstar excursions we purchased. They were all a poor value. I would recommend this tour to anyone.
Very easy booking process. The driver arrived early at port and phoned to advise what car he was in which was clean and comfortable. He was very friendly and knowledgeable of the area and we were pleased to be asked us if there was anything in particular we would like to see rather than just be shown everything. He dropped us off to walk along the promenade and collected us at the other end and also took us to a small café to have the local custard tarts which were great. Excellent tour.
Claudia was informative,engaging and great opening overview to this city. Food and wine were great. Claudia very knowledgeable. Nice to be in a small group who all spoke the same language
Our very personable guide and driver was wonderful. From the moment he met us at the cruise ship to our return, he informed us with the historical and contemporary story of Lisbon and vicinity. We were entertained and enriched by our experience. It was all that we were hoping it to be.
Since we had limited time in Lisbon, we picked this tour to get a meaningful overview of the city and that is exactly what we got! We were picked up right on time at our hotel in a beautiful Audi A6. Our guide, Paulo, gave us an amazing overview of the history of Lisbon and took us to some of the most significant places, including a few of the incredible cathedrals. I especially liked the panoramic view of the city near the Sao Jorge Castle. Paulo was extremely polite with a great sense of humor. His knowledge of the history of Lisbon was outstanding, but the best part is we got a real insight into the culture and people of the city.
Given our limited time in Lisbon this custom half day driving tour was well worthwhile especially given the great 'local knowledge' of our guide/driver, Tieago. He did a good job of sourcing out the main sights we indicated that we wanted to see in metropolitan Lisbon and he explained the significance of each in just the right amount of detail so as to not overwhelm us with too much detail. Pick-up and drop-off right at our hotel made for a very enjoyable survey of the highlights of Lisbon. Highly recommended.
There is a wonderful treasure in Lisbon, that my Family and I were fortunate to encounter, by the name of LUIS SEQUEIRA.
Luis is a Tour Guide in Lisbon, Sintra and Cascias possessive of tremendous knowledge of his Country. He has a very friendly style, he is charming, has a good sense of humor and is very delightful. His love of Portugal is contagious and he makes you love Portugal also.
Perfect Portugal is fortunate, indeed, to have Sr. Sequeira in their employ and we were fortunate to have him as our Guide.

Paulo , a Lisbon native, picked us up at our hotel and was very prompt. He gave us a wonderful individualized tour of Lisbon showing us the important historical site as well as different neighborhoods. He was fun to be with and most solicitous of us. There were four of us and he really personalized the tour.
Time Well Spent
We were fortunate to book a tour through Viator. The 4 hours in Lisbon with our guide Paulo made our visit a most memorable experience. Paulos love of Portugal came through wherever we went. Somehow he very professionally guided us through all the well-known sights and many you wont find in the guidebooks, while keeping us dry through this very rainy day. We especially appreciated his sharing his personal photography interests and ability to show us just the right places to get those perfect camera shots! Paulo was both knowledgeable and personable. Besides getting to know Portuguese history from a native, we were delighted how much time we saved by booking a private tour with Paulo. He truly made our stay in Lisbon a special trip. We have already recommended this company and our guide Paulo to fellow travelers. Thank you!

Hugo was fantastic. The best way to See all of Lisbon in 1/2 day. Highly recommended
Our Driver, George arrived in a well appointed car precisely on time and proceeded to whisk us around Lisbon for over four hours. He was fluent in English and had an excellent delivery of facts and history. We or rather he was frustrated by the pop up bollards around the castle which prevented us from going on a castle tour. It was just as well because we did the castle another day and it is worthy of a half day on its own. As a result we got to do several cathedrals and were brought to several Miradors or lookouts for the best views of the city.
All in all it was a first rate experience which we would recommend to all.
My wife who does all the research on our trips found George to be an excellent resource to confirm her choices of restaurants and activities and he was able to give a real local's insight on lesser advertised venues and events not to be missed during our short stay.
We will be back to Lisbon soon.
Everything is more than we expected. Out guide Thiago think this is how his name is spelled is very kind and helpful. Came exactly on time as promised to the Lisbon airport and dropped us there on time so that we can continue our trip. Showed us many important places that he can show us withing the 4 hour period.
My driver Hugo was very pleasant, spoke great English and was very knowledgeable about the city. It was nice to be driven around and given a locals perspective.
Our driver picked us up at the Mundial hotel right on time. He was driving a Mercedes that was spotless. Our driver was very knowledgeable and answered all of our questions. Only thing I wished he had done was be a little more informative regarding the city overlook. I'm sure if we had asked he would have been more proactive. I would highly recommend this tour
Since we only had three days in Lisbon and wanted to do as much as possible, my wife and I booked a only a half day private tour of Lisbon. Our guide, Diego, picked us up at our Lisbon hotel in a comfortable Mercedes and asked about our sightseeing priorities. We told him to concentrate on historic sights, so he took us to the Royal Basilica, Belem and St. Jorge Castle. Unfortunately this was a lot for a half day tour, and we didn't have time to tour Jeronimos Monestery in Belem. However, Diego was able to time things so that we saw the changing of the guard at the presidential palace, also in Belem, which was really nice. Between stops, Diego drove us through other neighborhoods and told us a little about each one. The tour was as advertised, and our guide was well informed, but it was just too short. I wished we had arranged our schedule better to allow time for a full day tour.
Based on everything that I read on Viator, I expected this to be our best tour of the trip. It was probably the worst. Very disappointed. On the good side, the driver was on time to our hotel and had water and wifi in the vehicle for us to use. However, he was not nearly as personable as other travelers' guides. He mainly just drove us from point A to point B, with not much said about the sights themselves or what we were driving through. There was no offer to help us get egg tarts or ride a funicular/gondola, etc that other reviewers got to do. At one point, we stopped at Starbucks to use the bathroom, and he disappeared for awhile to go get a takeout sandwich. We were left standing by the vehicle waiting for him. The tour was also shorter than we expected we ended up asking to get dropped off somewhere for lunch, since we had this extra time, and had a wonderful meal, but we ended up finding that place on our own. Loved Lisbon itself, but this tour was a big disappointment. I guess we got the dud from an otherwise good company.
This tour was the most disappointing of all of the tours we took with Viator while in Portugal. When I booked it, I was under the impression that the driver would customize the tour and take us where we wanted to go, not where he wanted to take us. As soon as I entered the car, I told him that I wanted to go to the LX Factory, an artist area in Lisbon. He acted like he would take me there, but he had a specific, tourist agenda, and he was not interested in deviating from his specific plan for the day. He took us to the most touristy places in the city including a stop at a pastry shop which was delicious but completely unnecessary. In fact, several of the places where he dropped us were not where I wanted to go at all, but I kept thinking that I would be surprised in the end and that I should just go with his suggestions. My partner felt the same way. The experience we had of the city, based on his tour, was negative. Where were all the cool, hip places that I had read and heard about? Where were all the artists? I saw nothing but cruise ship people and tourists, and there were TONS of them, and that meant that I didn't like the city at all. It was exhausting. It turns out, once we traveled through the city on subsequent days, that some hugely cool areas of the city were completely missed, areas that I had expressly requested to see. Even major streets! We were both shocked. Although our driver was pleasant, he was inflexible and that had a big impact on our initial experience of Lisbon and our overall experience of Lisbon in general. Truly Disappointing.
