What people are saying about Lisbon Metropolitan Area

I was picked up at my desired location at exactly 8:30am. Nuno was very punctual and considerate. The car ride to the beach was very entertaining - he told me about the history of the city and the best places/food in the city. The lesson itself was very instructive and the safety rules are a must! As a beginner, I am grateful the instructor was by my side throughout the lesson giving me pointers along the way. He even took the time to take photos and videos. I highly recommend this experience!
