This was the perfect way to see the highlights of Lisbon in the short time we had available. Our guide Inês was very knowledgeable and so kind - she was able to answer all of our questions and provide us with historical knowledge as well as help us understand the current social and cultural aspects of life in Lisbon. We would highly recommend that you tour with her!

This was such a great experience. Rui couldn’t have been nicer or more accommodating. He knew Lisbon and explained it well. The Tuk Tuk was excellent—we really liked all seats facing forward, which is usually not the case for four people.

Our guide Daria was excellent and friendly. It was a great way to see some of the sites without walking up the many hills. Beats a walking tour and so much better than sitting in a bus in traffic! Calf muscles sure got a workout!

Our guide, Paloma, was the best. She is really good educating people about Lisbon history. The tour was more than we expected. I would recommend this tour 100%.

Dara was amazing and the tour was so much fun!! A great value for the money!
