Sylvia was great, we really enjoyed the 4 hour tour of Lisbon old town and Belem. The views were amazing and we were very lucky with the weather! My only comment is that we struggled to hear her speaking over the city noises, it would have been good if she had a microphone or something. Just a suggestion.

We had an amazing time on this tour! Very fun ride and our guide Salo was incredible. Highly recommend! Also it was very nice that the tour ends in Belém so we could explore the area before heading back to Lisbon. Five stars and extra thanks to Salo!

Saulo is a great tour guide, the bikes were comfortable and it was a beautiful day!

Heads duck because of the branches but otherwise everything was great.

Maria is a great guide and her English and French are outstanding
