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!

We did this tour on our first day in Lisbon and it was a great way to get an overview of the city and to identify places we wanted to go back to The guide was knowledgeable and great fun and paced the tour you our groups abilities - going through Alfama will always be a memorable experience In our view this was the best tour of Lisbon which then allowed us to explore the city further by tram / metro

Miguel is a patient, pleasant and dedicated guide to his group. He makes every effort to ensure that the course is friendly and interesting. The Segway is intuitive and presents no difficulty. We can sneak in everywhere. It is really easy to handle. I discovered Lisbon from another angle because I arrived several days ago and it was really very pleasant. So I really recommend it to everyone.

Just being yourself and your camera. Awesome way to see the City.
