This was hands down the best tour of our entire time in Portugal! Not only did we get to see and learn so much of Alfama, but our tour guide Eduardo was patient, knowledgeable and friendly. He took extra time to ensure that we were comfortable on the Segway before beginning the tour. I also want to note that the folks at Get Your Guide were extremely accommodating - our flight ended up landing late, and the airport lines were unusually high, and although I was past the time allowed for changes, the customer service folks were able to get us into a later timeslot with no problems. I highly recommend this tour!
Our afternoon tour in Bairro Alto afforded us an opportunity for yet another private tour in English with the same guide Sofia from a previous tour. She was very knowledgeable of Bairro Alto. The stops along the way to the oldest library in Lisbon and many shopping areas. Beautiful to see the architecture and landmarks like the Hotel Avenida; first hotel in Lisbon still in existence. We walked to the famous elevator that takes you to the top for gorgeous views of Lisbon. Again, be prepared to do a lot of walking. I highly recommend this tour.
This was yet another wonderful experience. Since we requested an English speaking tour we ended up having our own private guide with Sofia who was just so pleasant and very knowledgeable of the Alfama zone and Lisbon. The stops along the way to taste Ginginha and Beirao along with their Pastel de Nata was delightful. Beautiful to see the architecture and landmarks still in existence. Be prepared to do a lot of walking. I highly recommend this tour.
Excellent service and tour. I was able to my propose to my girlfriend (now fiancé) at the perfect timing and it was a magical moment for both of us. I would highly highly recommend for anyone who wants to feel the cool breeze, wonderful sight, romantic moment, and something special. Honestly, one of the best date I ever had.
The tour was really nice - the guide is very friendly open minded and knowledgeable - tells a history about Fado, parts of the town and Portugal in general. After the tour, we had a traditional dinner with Fado music and everything was so authentic, calm and cute. Wonderful experience!
