A very nice day

They came to pick us up at the hotel where we were staying in a timely manner, but to our surprise our guide, Paula, showed us that the guide who made the visit in Spanish had become ill and that she would visit her, although she did not speak good spanish. We were only visiting for what we did on a tour with Mrs. Paula, a super friendly person, who demonstrated her extensive knowledge about Lisbon, and had a good level of Spanish, getting us to spend an unforgettable day in Lisbon. Thank you.

Lisbon seemed fantastic to us thanks to our guide Daniel.

To discover a city, nothing beats a private guide. This was the case in Lisbon with Daniel's tremendous kindness and attention. Listening to our requests, he made us discover a beautiful and authentic Lisbon without counting his time. We highly recommend and a big thank you to Daniel.
