The overall experience we had with Daniel was great!! We did the tour at the end of our trip, so it was really awesome learning new things & trying different food/drinks that we didn’t get a chance to try during our time in Lisbon! We stopped at about 5 places, with the last place being a sit-down restaurant so we could eat, drink, & make friends. Very great bang for your buck considering the total amount of food & alcohol you consume during the tour. I also liked that it wasn’t TOO much walking, as I was already tired from my trip. Really enjoyable afternoon learning & trying new things!
