We got to know another side of Lisbon and were incredibly well informed about everything by our guide. The tour itself is not for weak legs :) but our guide lady kept asking if we need a break and if everything is ok. She was very attentive in all areas. There was a little break in a small ice cream parlor. The ice cream was really delicious :) We could buy water or something similar in a small kiosk opposite. Two shops further on there were also empanadas for those who didn't really want ice cream. They were also delicious. About a great story of StreetArt and great works of art about mega viewpoints and small treats to one of the highest points in Lisbon an absolutely recommendable tour.

I did a private tour with Alice who was a great guide. Super knowledgeable and fun. She showed me the famous large wall paintings as well as the hidden ones, even one in a covered car park where I would never have suspected street art. Alice not only shows you the different (legal and illegal) graffiti and wall art, she can tell about each one who painted it, tells a story about the artist, and makes you see the city with different eyes. I now see street art everywhere where before I didn't really notice. Totally 200% recommendable!!!

Absolute fun, good instruction by friendly staff, interesting route, but stopping and parking is often difficult because of the many tourists and Tuc-Tucs and you have to keep up with the tram a bit brave in the heavy traffic and narrow streets. As a driver you don't always see all the sights!

Nana was an amazing guide. Very knowledgeable and kind to the children. We got a really overview of the history of Portugal. Nana is passionate about Lisbon and this shows in his enthusiasm to share his knowledge.

We spent a wonderful 2 hours accompanied by a friendly guide, equipped with both historical and touristic information. Thank you
