I took this small group tour in June. The guide Rita was super friendly. She was enthusiastic about the city's history and fun. This is the ideal tour to see all the tourist highlights in Lisbon in a short time. The itinerary was great and the transport very comfortable. She made Lisbon a memorable experience.

Daniel was amazing. He was very knowledgeable and super sweet. We had a lovely day and I would highly recommend him for any tour of Lisbon and especially the Jewish tour that we had. I look forward to touring with him on the near future. He is really great and he took good care of my sister and me.

Rita was such a great passionate and funny guide. She showed us all the good places... the history facts and also great tipps for afterwards. It was very comfortable with the small group and minivan. I can highly recommend that.
