We took multiple tours during our 9-night stay in Europe. Our best experience was easily on this tour, and that was undoubtedly due to our guide, Pablo. He made it a very enjoyable and knowledgeable experience for our entire family. He not only seems to have info on every single highlight on the tour, but also about much more. And he disperses that info in an entertaining manner. He’s a great storyteller and very personable and it’s obvious he has done his research. He’s always looking to learn more so he can share more with the city’s visitors. He’s conscious of making sure everything is covered in the time allotted, but also flexible in use of time. He provides great insider tips you wouldn’t get without this tour, and even gives restaurant suggestions. His utmost priority is making sure you have a fantastic time while learning about the sites and history of Lisbon. If you want a tour you’ll remember positively, this is a good option and an even better one if you get Pablo as guide.

Our Tuk Tuk was like a mini car with 4 wheels rather than the golf buggy style Tuk Tuks seen everywhere. Our guide Tiago was FABULOUS, very knowledgeable about Lisbon and the places we visited and very funny and patient with his passengers. The 3hr trip felt like it lasted all day and we agreed to be dropped off at the Lisbon Food market so we could get lunch afterwards. Totally recommend this trip as you get to see so much of Lisbon, get to do a bit of walking to see some of the attractions and its a private tour so you get the guide to yourself and go at a pace that suits your group!

My daughter and I had Tony as our guide and we absolutely loved him and the ride itself! Our favorite part was going to Alfama and the point where we could see the whole city of Lisbon. We received amazing restaurant recommendations from our guide which we later went to and absolutely loved. The stopping points in the tour were informational about the city of Lisbon, and the electric bikes made it extremely easy to go up the hills.

You will see the most beautiful places that you would not easily find without a guide. Guide Martin was a very nice guide who knew a lot

Wonderful tour guide. Highly recommend. Friendly and informative!! Thanks
