I had the pleasure of being guided by Ricardo during my recent trip to Lisbon, and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Ricardo's knowledge of the city was impressive, and his witty humor added an extra layer of enjoyment to the tour. He made learning about Lisbon's rich history and culture both engaging and entertaining. I highly recommend Ricardo as a guide for anyone visiting this beautiful city!
