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.
