We had previously taken the tour of Pena Palace with the same tour company a few days earlier and found it to be a great experience. Since we were the only two on this particular excursion, it was functionally a private tour in a private car. It was a great way to skip the lines and avoid large tour groups. Our guide, Miguel, was fantastic! He was fun, courteous, and most of all informative. He provided a great deal of historical context about Portugal and Lisbon in general. Very helpful and accommodating. He knows the best views in the city, so don’t forget to ask about that!

A very nice day

They came to pick us up at the hotel where we were staying in a timely manner, but to our surprise our guide, Paula, showed us that the guide who made the visit in Spanish had become ill and that she would visit her, although she did not speak good spanish. We were only visiting for what we did on a tour with Mrs. Paula, a super friendly person, who demonstrated her extensive knowledge about Lisbon, and had a good level of Spanish, getting us to spend an unforgettable day in Lisbon. Thank you.

Very good choice :)

This is a very good choice if you're only in Lisbon for around 3 days. You get to see parts of Lisbon that for sure you wouldn't see if going alone. We had Marcos as our guide and he is really good. He has a vast knowledge of Lisbon and the surroundings, he's friendly and his English is pretty good :) Because we liked this tour with Marcos, we also booked the tour to Sintra, Cabo da Roca and Cascais which was excellent!
