    The 72 hour all inclusive pass is the best value imo because you pretty much get a tour of most of the city. I unfortunately wasn't able to do the tram tour but I used my ticket to ride the city trams and that was good enough for me. my only critque is that it's hard to find the bus stops so they should try to add more specific directions on where they are.

The guide was very knowledgeable. He was giving us a lot of history and information. The Fado was amazing, both singers had such great voice and the music was also very good. The food was ok but you do not go there for the food rather the Fado experience. The only warning is check the address of the meeting point, it might not be accurate.

Excellent tour. Learned about the history of the different parts. The guide is really knowledgeable about the city's history.

Nice route with many different dishes and drinks. Learned a lot about the history of the city in relation to food and drink.

Tiago was great and we were able to get a good introduction to the Lisbon nightlife

Excellent service. Professional and helpful staff.
