The tour was well organised in time, just make sure that you have correct ticket with you otherwise you can buy from them too. ( I had to buy the ticket from the tour because I bought the wrong one from the metro station, so if you are not sure what to buy, just get a ticket from the tour ) Rita was our tour guide, very knowledgeable and well explain during the tour.

Overall, a solid tour experience with a knowledgeable and funny guide. We had to cut the visit down to Belem tower, which I think should have been included. He asked permission of the group and while we consented as a group, a few of us talked later about how we would have liked to have gone to the tower. I think this could have been arranged easily if other stops with long histories were trimmed.

Amazing history!

Loved the tour, and the tour guide, Yuri! He did an amazing job explaining the history of Portugal through the age of discoveries! He has a lot of passion on this subject and kept us interested till the end! Pastries were delicious; a must try. We bought 6 for the two of us. This tour enriched our experience and put meaning behind our trip! I would recommend to everyone!
