Our guide was called Monika and she was just great. We have never listened so fascinated to 3.5 hours of history and culture and learned interesting facts about a city. In this case it was Lisbon. We felt like we were in every little alley and hiked through (almost) all parts of the city.

Fantastic tour. Sofia was knowledgeable, courteous, thoughtful and an overall wonderful person. Almost a personal tour with a lot of historical context provided. This is a highly recommended tour.
