Full description
See the sights of Lisbon that interest you most on a full-day private tour with an itinerary that’s designed just for you! There’s no need to rush around on this special tour, as you’ll have time to take in the top artistic and historical attractions of the city. Marvel at historical landmarks such as São Jorge Castle and Lisbon´s Cathedral. Travel from the Phoenician civilization, up to the Roman city of Olissippo. Visit Alfama, the city’s oldest sector, and see Moorish influences everywhere. Take a stroll off the typical tourist route, through the city’s traditional neighborhoods and get a real feeling of what Alfacinhas (Lisbon natives) do and where they go in their lovely city. During the day you’ll also have the opportunity to taste some of Portugal's traditional pastries. Although the tour is meant to cover a full day the duration can be shorter to suit your schedule.

We had a fantastic day! João showed us the most beautiful sights of Lisbon in 5 hours. He explained the historical background to us in great detail, and in German at that. That was very pleasant. We can absolutely recommend this tour. It is important to wear good shoes, your feet will thank you. João also responded to our requests and adjusted the tour accordingly when we didn't want to see something. For us it was an all-round perfect day. Thank you João!

The four of us took part in a private city tour. Our guide João Dickmann lives in Lisbon, but speaks excellent and accent-free German. He knows his city and its history very well, which jumps out at you around every corner. He didn't owe us an answer and showed us a lot of things that we would otherwise have passed without noticing. João readily accommodated our requests and the five hours passed far too quickly.

We were a group of 9 people. Our guide was Joao Dickmann. Very sympathic. He had an answer for everything. Very good German. Showed us Lisbon from all sides and also a lot of background and context. It doesn't get any better. Thank you very much for this great day Joao. It would be nice if we could do something together again. Warm greetings . Enshalla
