What a recommendation. Did this trip with brothers and sisters. Seen a lot of Lisbon and what a nice guide we had. He really took his time with us and was enthusiastic about telling us. We have been on the road longer than the 3 hours we paid for, but this was no problem either. The hills were easy to do because of the e-bikes. All in all, especially do it!

We chose the old town tour for 90 mins. It was fascinating from start to finish and our guide was excellent providing a running commentary along with many historical facts. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone visiting Lisbon.

Excellent, informative fun

Really enjoyed the experience, would highly recommend. Great way to learn about Lisbon with the kids. They really enjoyed it and found it very interesting. Our guide was great, friendly and very knowledgable

It was a fantastic experience. The tour was extremely professional and brought us closer to Lisbon in a new, different way. We can only recommend it ;-)

Just being yourself and your camera. Awesome way to see the City.
