Our guide and only driver "allowed to drive" the beautiful "Amalia super tuk tuk" was delightful in her stories and knowledge of Lisbon and Portuguese history. This is not the typical tuk tuk vehicle that you might think you know. Truly a worthwhile experience, even having survived a long International flight and arriving that very morning in Lisbon finding that our luggage had not arrived. This 2 hour excursion was definitely the highlight of our day.

Our Guide Romuald assisted by Fernando was excellent. Very cultured and able to answer all our questions about History with a capital H and the little history of Lisbon. Regarding the street art of Lisbon, 3 hours are a minimum to discover some very impressive mural works. We were 10 people in 2 tuktuks. It is ideal for this kind of visit. We highly recommend this activity (visit conducted in French)
