Our guide, Bianca, exceeded all expectations we had for this tour. She had such a vast understanding of Portuguese history and was such a wealth of knowledge. She thoroughly explained everything that we saw and in an engaging manner. Bianca kept our two teenagers so engaged that it made for a wonderful family experience. She answered all of our questions and went above and beyond everywhere we went. I highly recommend this tour and if you can request Bianca, please do so. You will not be disappointed.

Our tour guide Andre was most enjoyable. Super charismatic, knowledgeable (learned so much about Lisbon!) and patient with our two little boys who were having a rough afternoon. If I could have booked him for the whole afternoon I would have. Highly recommend his company and him personally. I’d give more than five stars if I could!

We arranged at short notice and we’re really pleased with Nuno our guide for the 2 hours. He had a great way of describing the history of the city and kept us fully engaged throughout the tour.

This was the perfect way to see different areas of Lisbon and learn its history. Our family (including two teens) all loved it. David, the owner, is a great guide.

Silvia, did an excellent job of providing a great overview of Lisbon the day of our arrival! the Tuk tuk tour worked well for us as we were traveling with a child!
