The tour was amazing! We discovered Lisbon from a completely different point of view! More local and authentic thanks to Rita and her amazing energy! She was explaining everything and sharing with us her passion for food and history This tour is a must for every person visiting Lisbon for the first time ! You get to know and understand a country through the food and the culture !

Our guide was Marta. We couldn’t have asked for better. She was warm, knowledgeable and enthusiastic. We had a small group so it became a social event rather than just a tour, which was very enjoyable. We would highly recommend this tour, especially at the beginning of your time in Lisbon. Ask for Marta if you can!
