If you're spending a full day on tour the guide has to have enough charisma as well as information to keep you engaged throughout the tour. Machado (Max) hit the bullseye! I would sign up for another one of his tours any time. He was especially thoughtful with the member of the tour who had two children with her as well as an older woman.

The first walking tour of my Portugal trip. Nice overview, easy with a good natured host. Great photo ops in the midpoint and if you're a fan of the country's trademark tilework, plenty of them were spotted in strolls among many neighborhoods. Also got to ride one of Lisbon's famous trams.

Had a great time. Luckily we had our tour guide just to ourselves due to a slow tourism time plus it being an English tour. She was very informative and a pleasure to spend time with. Highly recommend this tour!
