Annie was in incredible tour guide, providing memorable historical information and taking us to and through notable viewpoints and experiences. It was great hearing a bit of her personal experience in Portugal and she was quite knowledgeable on sustainability efforts which we are very interested in. She was punctual yet flexible. We loved our tour and highly recommend Annie as a guide!

Our tour guides - Rhian and Annie - were excellent. They were very knowledgeable about the city and answered a lot of questions that we had. They gave us really good recommendations for places to visit after the tour. For the second tour we had a train to catch so Annie customized the walk to make sure we got the best experience in the time we had. I would highly recommend this tour if they are the tour guides. For the company that operates the tours, we wish they gave them better uniforms. Their uniforms looked really old and dull. I’m not sure if speakers are allowed in Lisbon but for some spots it’s hard to hear them in the city noise. Other than that, a wonderful experience.

Our walking tour with Annie was great! Annie's english was really good which made her knowledge and fun personality all the more appreciable. We were fortunate to have a privet tour and had a lovely time discovering Alfama while Annie answered all of our multitude of questions. Really a fun time - thank you Annie!
