At the request of the guide, the tour took place at a different time. Then he arrived much too late at our meeting place. He made up for this by treating us to a delicious local pastry. We received a lot of good information. All in all a great experience and definitely recommended.

My 25 yr old daughter and I took the 3 hr tour during a long layover and our guide, Hernique, was excellent as well a knowledgeable. We definitely got a feel for the city, architecture and sites in the short time we were there. Our guide provided many insights into the history of the places we visited. The added knowledge contributed so much to understanding Lisbon and will be one of the main reasons we will return to visit the city in more depth. This was the first tour with this outfit. We also did a 6 hr tour with Get your Guide in Barcelona. I'm going to keep this app to book more tours during my next travels. It's a great way to get oriented to the city, providing a foundation for further exploration. Also both guides made a number of suggestions for visiting other places and restaurants after the tour. Invaluable!

Perfect Day

We would never ever have seen the secret spots and places without Jorge. He showed us in his sympathetic way why he loves his city so much. His knowledge in history and geographical detail, presented in most perfect English was outstanding. We will return some day to meet Jorge again.
