Joao was very knowledgeable about the Lisbon Street Art scene and had an interesting perspective on respect amongst different artists and how their art should be viewed both geographically and historically. The differences between the three neighborhoods we explored (Bairro Alto, Mouraria and Grace) were clear and informative. Highly recommended.

Fantastic tour! Our guide Peter was so knowledgable and took us through back streets and places we would never have discovered on our own. Our guide knew the history of Lisbon and Portugal inside out! It was a small group and very Covid-friendly. Our first time using electric bikes which are really fun once you get the hang of it.

Filipe was very professional and helpful. Very knowledgable and full of general information too ! Good equipment and level of tuition very good. Highly recommend. Pity about the wind but unfortunately no control over it ,

The trainer was such a nice person, explained everything very well and the whole experience felt exciting but very safe. I would definitely do this again. Thank you, Nuno!
