Gabi was a great tour guide who showed us all of the beautiful areas and history of Belem and provided great stories and information about them all. And don’t miss the opportunity to try the Pastéis de Belem during the tour!

Walter was an amazing guide and our walk through Belem was amazing! He has so much knowledge of the history of Lisboa and Belem, and it was so interesting how he incorporated it all throughout the walk.

A pesar de estar un poco resfriado, Sergio cumplió al máximo. Nos ofreció un viaje inspirador a la historia del distrito. Una gran personalidad, muy educado y entretenido a la vez. Definitivamente lo recomendamos. PS: Traigan plumas para apuntar sus numerosas recomendaciones de libros ;) ¡Suerte con el resto de tus estudios, Sergio!

El tour está muy bien, los guias son muy profesionales, dan mucha informacion, amena y dinámica, al menos nuestro guia Sergio. Pero lo que no entendemos es la política de la empresa. Es un Free Tour, si sois 6 o menos de 6, o sea se da la voluntad, que la verdad los guias lo trabajan y se tiene que dar un precio justo. Pero nosotros que eramos 8, tuvimos que pagar un precio fijo, cuando íbamos junto con todo el grupo(unas 20personas aprox) No se entiende que los que iban en parejas de 2 o el grupo de 4 pagaran lo que quisieran y nuestro grupo de 8 tuviera que pagar precio fijo. Para nuestro grupi NO fue un Free Tour. Publicidad de la empresa mal, porque NO dicen la verdad. Los Guias muy bien!!
