Andriy was an excellent tour guide who helped us truly understand the history of Belem and Portugal. He was very personable, he answered questions about local life, and he knew all of the neat details about the exhibits in the tour and more. We had a great time and can highly recommend Andriy’s tour.

I would like to extend a special thanks to Rui who made this tour special for my partner and me. He provided substantial background knowledge on Belém, and we were under the impression that his intention was to breathe life into the history of Portugal. Add to this the delicious pasteis de belém, and you have a day well spent! ***10/10 would recommend*** Oh and PS: Rui did not spoil Game of Thrones!! Thanks for that too ;))
