The first walking tour of my Portugal trip. Nice overview, easy with a good natured host. Great photo ops in the midpoint and if you're a fan of the country's trademark tilework, plenty of them were spotted in strolls among many neighborhoods. Also got to ride one of Lisbon's famous trams.

Would highly recommend. We spent all four hours in the older parts of the city, which gave time to spend inside exhibitions or linger at a spot. Our guide, Joanna, was very interactive. She wanted to know what we had already seen and tailored our time accordingly.

Had a great time. Luckily we had our tour guide just to ourselves due to a slow tourism time plus it being an English tour. She was very informative and a pleasure to spend time with. Highly recommend this tour!

Our tour guide was exceptional, had so much knowledge and kept the tour exciting. Would highly recommend for anyone who wants to understand the stories of Lisbon.

Our guide was knowledgable and interesting. She guided us through significant areas of Lisbon and kept us all engaged!
