What people are saying about Lisbon

Miyuki was amazing!! My 15 year old son and I had such a positive, enjoyable experience learning to make Pastel Nata. Miyuki was friendly and engaging. And she definitely knows her stuff! She helped just enough for us to feel successful —but not so much that we couldn’t feel the reward of our efforts. And what a reward it was . Oh my goodness—- Pastel Nata fresh from the oven. All those flaky layers and the perfectly creamy custard… heavenly! The kitchen is clean, bright, and modern. From start to finish the perfect way to spend an evening in Portugal. Miyuki was like a close friend sharing a favorite recipe. I would highly recommend this culinary experience. Book it! You won’t regret it!!

These guys make a great team! They are so kind and knowledgeable. They are funny and fun. Also, they are patient. We are dropped off almost a mile from our destination and Pedro helped us get there in time by navigating us with scooters!

This was a great experience to get a good view of Lisbon from the river. We saw many landmarks and the sunset was beautiful from the water. I thoroughly enjoyed the wine & snacks that were provided as well.

A great tour with very friendly company. They know their way around very well and know areas where dolphins often stay. Definitely to be recommended.

The magnificent sunset with the monuments. Little aperitif offered super nice
