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.

one ticket for 3 days, all lines - for the Metro, buses, trams - convenience for active visitors, additional discounts for museums and other facilities

Everything went GREAT - 72 hours is perfect - metro - bus, etc. everything is included if you want it. Admission included or usually with discounts

This map is very helpful and everything can be done without much thought. Train Bus Tram and various sights.

We took the Belem route. Good audio information on the bus. Enjoyed the route
