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!

Great way to explore Lisbon! It was our second time and it was as good as the first one. Very friendly staff, sightseeing, lots of wine and a beautiful sunset. What else do you need to explore a city?

This experience was FABULOUS!! Our captain could not have been more skilled, friendly and informative. It really was an experience of a lifetime -- so happy we did it, well worth it!
