Our guide, Bianca, exceeded all expectations we had for this tour. She had such a vast understanding of Portuguese history and was such a wealth of knowledge. She thoroughly explained everything that we saw and in an engaging manner. Bianca kept our two teenagers so engaged that it made for a wonderful family experience. She answered all of our questions and went above and beyond everywhere we went. I highly recommend this tour and if you can request Bianca, please do so. You will not be disappointed.

Am cumparat biletul 3 in 1 ptr 48 de ore. 35 euro de persoana, mi-a placut tot ce am vazut, mai ales turul cu tramvaiul istoric. Pret /calitate foarte bun. Organizare bună. Muzica de la căști din autobuze (dintre comentarii) era prea lenta, te adoarme cind stai si astepti la semafor,fooooarte melancolica. Dar asta e chestie se gusturi..

We really enjoyed our sunset tour. Our guides were very knowledgeable and kind. I would greatly recommend this experience for anyone looking for a peaceful and calm afternoon. It was the perfect end to our visit to Lisbon.

Silvia, did an excellent job of providing a great overview of Lisbon the day of our arrival! the Tuk tuk tour worked well for us as we were traveling with a child!

Luis was an excellent guide and shared a lot of history about the sites we visited.
