    Our guide Bruno was great. It was the right amount of history and entertainment for us. We had opportunities along the way to get a snack and drink. The only bummer was that the rolled up plastic cover on the Tuk Tuk is right in your view and you either have to look up through the plastic window or bend down to look out under the cover. On the positive side, we were protected from the sun.

Highly recommended 12 out of 10 stars

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!!!

My daughter and I booked this tour for our first day in Lisbon. The tour was excellent. We saw more than we could on our own. Our tour guide, Joel, was excellent. He was knowledgeable and passionate about Lisbon. I would highly recommend.

In Hugo we had a very charming and knowledgeable guide who responded to our personal requests. We had a very nice afternoon and would recommend this tour again and again!

Miguel was an excellent guide, knowledgeable and choking, speaking also German quite well. We added an extra 2h to see the full tour - very good choice !
