Vasco was fantastic! Tile tour was really interesting. Much more than we expected in that we was also got to see a more modern part of the city that we really would not have been exposed to through our other explorations of Lisbon. Vasco was flexible with our plan and really accommodating. Highly recommend.

The guide picked me up in his car and gave me a tour of some locations in Lisboa where you can see both old and modern tilework. This was very interesting and fun. We went to the the National Tile Museum where he gave med a guided tour trough the museum which was very informative and interesting. After that we went to the visit the atelier with years of tile tradition, responsible for works that are visible throughout the city of Lisbon. The professionals from the atelier helped me painting a tile, applying an ancestral tile technique of the territory. It could be fun if this part lasted longer as I really enjoyed this process and would have liked to bring my own design to the tile, as I am an artist myself and has a special interest in designing tiles. But this was a good start. Vasco personally delivered the tile to me when it had been treated in the ceramic oven and even gave me a lift to the airport! I really enjoyed my day and will recommend this to anyone interested in history.
