Hello, so concerning the lisbon card, I hesitated a little at first; but after thinking it over quickly, I thought it might be worth it. Well yes and I will detail: first use on Thursday AM we took transport 5 times and visited Sé (1€ reduction): Friday we took transport 10 times and included visit of the elevator, tower of belem, monastery coach museum and pillar 7 (full day): on Saturday we took transport 6 times and included a visit to the arc de triomphe (half day dedicated to almada and christ where nothing is included you have to pay for everything): the Sunday after the fireworks we took a transport to the airport. All in all, the 72-hour card costs €44 and without it we would have had it for €70: We made the most of transport to make chip jumps and save time - We still had half a day left to use it if we weren't supposed to leave early on Sunday

Our guide, Abdullah, was great. This trip is a great way to see the city and get to know your way around. Would recommend doing it at the beginning of a trip as Abdullah was great at helping up learn more About Lisbon, finding our way around, and some great hidden gems we would never have seen without him! Thanks for a great tour!

The pick up was very easy! I was able to pick up my Lisboa cards at the airport right outside of baggage claim. This is an amazing tool to get around Lisbon (free transit on metro, busses, and some outbound trains like the ones that goes to Sintra). Perfect tourist card and I cannot recommend enough

We arrived early and avoided the queue. Well located, easy access. We combine the tour with the Confeitaria Nacional and the Jerónimos Monastery.

Very knowledgeable and personable experience! Highly recommend!
