Sylvia was great, we really enjoyed the 4 hour tour of Lisbon old town and Belem. The views were amazing and we were very lucky with the weather! My only comment is that we struggled to hear her speaking over the city noises, it would have been good if she had a microphone or something. Just a suggestion.

Ricardo was amazing! Very knowledgeable and passionate. Food was delicious and He was great explaining the food we ate as well as pairing it with the perfect drink and telling us about the culture. We were a group of 14 and everyone had a great time. Thank you
