Our guide, Bianca, exceeded all expectations we had for this tour. She had such a vast understanding of Portuguese history and was such a wealth of knowledge. She thoroughly explained everything that we saw and in an engaging manner. Bianca kept our two teenagers so engaged that it made for a wonderful family experience. She answered all of our questions and went above and beyond everywhere we went. I highly recommend this tour and if you can request Bianca, please do so. You will not be disappointed.

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!
