We did a German-speaking tour with a total of 6 people and can recommend the tour without reservation. Our tour guide Ingo was very personable and funny and provided us with a lot of interesting information. He was flexible with us and kindly dropped off part of the group at another location and brought the rest back to the hotel. Great service! Thanks to Ingo!

We had a great tour with guide Ingo, who took a lot of time for us and responded to our individual wishes. Highly recommended to get a first impression of Lisbon.

It was great, you could see everything and there were good stops, between the infos there was modern fado music (very nice), staff were also very friendly.

The contact with our guide Ingo worked smoothly. We spontaneously changed the starting point and time and that wasn't a problem at all.

Pleasant, at the top for a visit to Lisbon, and all its important monuments. Well explained.
