We had a lovely walk with Joaqim. He showed us city center of Lisbon and has shared with us a lot of useful tricks. He is really knowledgeable and full of passion. As I am always curious on many things and ask a plenty of questions our walk took more than 4 hours !

Excellent tour by a highly skilled guide. Joaquim studied history and it shows. He was able to answer all my questions both about the history of Lisbon/Portugal as well as making the link to nowdays life in Lisbon. Very entertaining. Good and usefull tips. I would definitely recommend Joaquim any time! Patrick

The best walking tour I have ever been on! Joaquim was so knowledgeable and could answer any questions we had. He gave us so many reccomendations of things we could do whilst we are here in Lisbon. I just can't reccomend him enough, if you want a genuine tour by a real local guide with a lot of experience then this is the tour for you. Joaquim made us feel so welcome and I really felt the Portuguese friendliness from him.

It was a great tour! Joaquim was very pleasant, informative & made it fun. Even though I’ve been to Lisboa before, I learnt a lot of history that I didn’t know. He also gave a few pointers on where to eat & what to see! Really enjoyed this tour & would recommend it. Obrigado Joaquim
