Our tour it’s very well paced and our local guides will tell you all about the fascinating stories behind the history of Lisbon and Portugal, the portuguese culture and their people.

Rita was a well-informed and patient guide who took time to explain the history and culture of her beautiful city to us. Highly recommended. Wear comfortable shoes! There is a fair bit of walking and stairs towards the end of the tour.

Rita did a great job with this tour. It was a great way to spend a grey morning in Lisbon. She explained some of the history and made many of the places we visited come to life. I would recommend everyone take this tour. It’s impossible to be disappointed.
