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!

Our guide Arthur was absolutely fantastic. Contacted us to arrange timings etc and was extremely accomadating. He was very knowledgeable about the city and we walked from one side of the city to the other where he showed us lots of interesting sights, which we would probably never have found on our own! He brought the city alive and enabled us to navigate it on our own after he had left! Thank you Arthur.

Great experience with a great guide! Fun, informational and relaxed at same time. The guide made fun adults and for our 12 year old daughter - and that means a lot! Enjoyed very much - worth every penny you pay. I’ll use it again, if I’ll need a layover tour in Lisbon. Thanks :)

Igor was very knowledgeable and managed to fit enormous amount of views and information in only 3 hours. Be prepared to walk and walk a lot but it is totally worth it!

Very knowledgeable, happy to guide our group of 5 Aussie travellers and share his love of Lisbon
