Fantastic guided tour by tuk tuk around Lisbon, particularly the areas not usually experienced. The street art was fantastic, and we learnt a lot about Bordalo II's "trash art" as well as going away from the centre and seeing how street art had brightened up and united some of the communities of Lisbon. Fantastic guide, who really brought things to life and was lovely company. He really made the tour so enjoyable. Really recommend!!

Very nice walk through the almafa district in Lisbon very knowledgeable Tour leader Rita who could tell very well about the past and the origin of this district and its inhabitants highly recommended and Rita was the best

The walking tour with Antonio was great, history, a bit of fun and unusual stories told by a nice local guy. I will definitely sign to another tour with Antonio when I am back in Lisboa.

Pedro was an excellent guide. Very personable. Knows the art work very well. Took very good photos of art work, in the rain, for us too! We highly recommend the tour and Pedro!

Thiago was brilliant... couldn't have had a better time. We went WAY off the beaten track and all the better for it. Highly recommend this tour!
