Sam was an excellent guide. Very knowledgeable,friendly and took us to many places we would have struggled to get to on foot. Tuk tuk was a great modern way to see the city, and we would definitely recommend this tour for anyone looking for a bit of a thrill ride/ historical tour with a bit of humour thrown in for good measure.

The 72-hour Lisboa Card is definitely worth it if you want to see a lot of Lisbon and use almost all means of transport without any hassle

Super fun and informative tour. Wasn’t all uphill walking and we took lots of breaks in the shade. Overall great experience

It was awesome!!! Babu was an excellent guide and taught us a lot about the area! Would highly recommend Babu!!
