Overall rating

It was great to be guided in the hilly city. We accomplished so much more than I could image possible. We stopped at a few places. No rush on anything. It gave us a sense of location in a new city and we were able to figure out what places to venture later on our own. The tour guide was lovely.

Would highly recommend. We spent all four hours in the older parts of the city, which gave time to spend inside exhibitions or linger at a spot. Our guide, Joanna, was very interactive. She wanted to know what we had already seen and tailored our time accordingly.

Really easy to use on all transport. Unfortunately didn't get given a guide book when we collected them at the airport as we probably could have used them in more places for discounts etc but a hassle free way to get around Lisbon

Stunning architecture can only be appreciated by seeing first-hand. Long line to enter. Bring cold water and hat. Self tour. Read about history before going.

Great experience with a great guide. Highly recommend!!
