At OptimusTours we have many years of experience in the world of tourism; In our tours you will only have the best Accredited Official Guides (historians, philologists, art historians) who will make you fall in love with their cities. Our guides will tell you about the history, the heritage of each of them, but also, like good locals, they will tell you about the best areas to eat, where to go shopping and what to see in the cities, going beyond traditional travel guides because what we want is that you feel part of them, that you experience the city not as a tourist, but as one of us.

The tour was really good. One of the best I attended. Diogo was really charismaric, and had a lot of jokes about the city. Ideal combination of history and funny facts
