6-hour mostly walking tour!! Rodrigo was my tour guide and he was great…extremely knowledgeable about Lisbon and Portuguese history as well as overt and covert landmarks and things you shouldn’t miss seeing. He happily tweaked the tour for me to have time to sit down and enjoy the sites and sounds of Lisbon as well as taking an extended tram ride while he pointed things out along the way. I was able to try the delicious pastel de nata from a special bakery that has them warm right from the oven (delightful with a cup of cappuccino) and lunch was at a small Portuguese restaurant, a hidden gem, that had excellent salmon and rice. Also got to try the Lisbon liquor, Ginja as a digestive after lunch. This tour can be adapted to fit many more guests, I was simply the only one signed up so it became a “private tour.” Highly recommend…ask for Rodrigo if you want to know the true history of Lisbon and Portugal!

The tuk-tuk driver drove us up and down the mountains. Very nice ride, only the driver could have told a bit more about the city.

Very interesting. It is the best way to explore the city by tuktuk. One sees a lot and is damn variable.
