    We had a wonderful experience with our guide. We arrived a little late as we got lost in the labrynthic roads of Alfama but he was understanding and able to still accommodate us being on the tour. He spoke both Portuguese and English within our group and was very patient with that. He was informative, able to answer any questions that we had and genuinely kind. Thanks for a great experience!

    We had a great and informative tour of the Sao Jorge Castle. It was easy to find the tour guide next to the red phone booth by the castle entrance. It was a small group tour so we were able to ask a lot of questions. Our guide Pedro was very friendly and knowledgeable. It was great that we got to skip the line. The actual tour was approximately 40-50 minutes long (which was perfect, we wouldn't have wanted it to be longer or shorter) After the tour was over we were free to walk around and take photos on our own which was nice since the views from the Castle are amazing.

    The guide we had was great. He wasn’t a typical guide. We were supposed to only be with him for fifteen minutes to get adjusted to castle, but it was closer to forty five minutes since he was very informative and we had questions. It was straight and to the point. We normally don’t do tours, but this tour guide was the exception.
