What people are saying about Lisbon Metropolitan Area

Miguel was super friendly and informative. He even wrote a Whatsapp 2 hours before the start of the tour so that we also have his number. He waited for us because unfortunately we arrived later because of a traffic jam on the A2. The tour was great, he showed us many sights and told stories about them, also made comparisons with other countries. The food and drink was awesome. He himself studied in Lisbon (history and tourism) and knows many good places and gave us tips for the next few days. We were also allowed to write to him afterwards for tips on what else we could visit. Great experience, recommend it

Alexandra, our guide, was terrific! She was very well prepared and shared a diverse amount of commentary and information about the various food types, markets and food itself. She really knows the local places well from a small restaurant with bifuna to the pastries and espresso at the cafes and of course, the Time Out Market. She was unhurried and happy to answer our questions. She shared her personal experiences learned through her lifetime and was also a great companion.

We loved our tour with Marianna. She was very knowledgeable and took the time to point out interesting places and facts and explain the significance of certain monuments and food. It was the perfect way to spend our first day in Lisbon - 10 out of 10. Would definitely recommend.

Our guide (Alexandra) was really lovely and very knowledgeable and the tour takes you to some great places. We had walked past a couple of the places in the previous days but had no idea how great that were inside till we went in on this tour!

The guide was charming and had extensive knowledge of the history and architecture of Lisbon, we visited excellent places to eat, and tasted the special selection of the city's foods and drinks
