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!

We had a most interesting walk around the streets of Graca looking at the work of various street artists. Rui is very knowledgeable, answered all our questions and showed us interesting landmarks. It was a rich experience.

We enjoyed the tram tour. the driver greeted us very well and explained the tour. To do when the weather is a little more gloomy and allows you to see things that you would not necessarily have seen by yourself

Great one hour and one half through the city of Lisbon. No other than the tram ride will do, we had a blast on her birthday! The tram drivers are the best in the world.

Super fun to do this ride when you just arrive in Lisbon!
