Hello, so concerning the lisbon card, I hesitated a little at first; but after thinking it over quickly, I thought it might be worth it. Well yes and I will detail: first use on Thursday AM we took transport 5 times and visited Sé (1€ reduction): Friday we took transport 10 times and included visit of the elevator, tower of belem, monastery coach museum and pillar 7 (full day): on Saturday we took transport 6 times and included a visit to the arc de triomphe (half day dedicated to almada and christ where nothing is included you have to pay for everything): the Sunday after the fireworks we took a transport to the airport. All in all, the 72-hour card costs €44 and without it we would have had it for €70: We made the most of transport to make chip jumps and save time - We still had half a day left to use it if we weren't supposed to leave early on Sunday

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

This was the perfect way to see different areas of Lisbon and learn its history. Our family (including two teens) all loved it. David, the owner, is a great guide.

2nd time we got one. So easy to use. Access to most transportation and many attractions.

Great experience and I’m booking this again for the next trip next month
