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

What a fabulous tour! Our guide, Daniel was knowledgeable, personable and very informative. We enjoyed all of the food and wine and the company of all the others in our group! Delicioso!

Ana was a great tour guide! It was nice to get an idea for food in the area and she even left us with suggestions on where to go for the rest of our time here. Highly recommend!

Sophia was absolutely fantastic! It was a great experience. She introduced us to the local food and wine, which was all fantastic!

I like it very much. The music was calm and sentimental a bit. I am not an expert in FADO singing, but ir was a nice experience.
