I love our day tour via Viator. Our guide, Maria Joao was amazing, we got her to all ourselves and she was extremely knowledgeable, friendly and accommodating. We got to see so much in a short time and even when I got a pick pocket, no fault to anyone, they were so good, could happen in any city! she helped me go to a police station, file a report, call my credit cards and continue after to our tour. Love every aspect of this tour, visiting the churches, the castle, the old town, desert and porto tasting... overall I could not ask for anything better. We did not need to wait on any lines for entrees and everything was taken care of. I highly suggest to anyone.
If you like walking, history and details then you will love this in depth tour. You will walk some, sit some and climb hills but at a leisurely pace. Stopping to snack on traditional Portuguese foods and drinks. Our guide Maria was very lovely- friendly and knowledgeable. Maria knows her city, the history, the shops, the streets and short cuts! Maria gave us a feel for culture and the people of Lisbon. The steep streets of the Alfama can be taxing on the joints so take this tour early in your trip when you are fresh. Also by the end of this tour you will know your way around the city and can easily return to your favorite spots. You will see the different neighborhoods, everything as written in the itinerary without rushing. Very pleasant way to spend the day!
