First time with GetYourGuide and I can only declare myself satisfied! Just a nice ride, taking advantage of the competence and sympathy of our guide who whisked us up and down the Portuguese hills! If you are in Lisbon and want to spend a different day away from the noise of the city and breathe some fresh air as well as visit interesting and unique places, a tour like this could be for you!

Very happy with this activity, without stopping to see places with different contracts, also highlighting Bruno, a good connoisseur of the history of the area, made us enjoy a great Saturday 10/29/2022.
