I'm well traveled and have taken many tours (and a competative bike racer). This tour was 100% the best tour I've ever taken. Getyourguide partners with local tour companies and my local tour company's guide's name is Daniel. Ask for him. At first they gave me a hybrid type bike which I was not comfortable on (being that I only ride road bikes and mountain bikes). Within minutes they swapped it out with a Cannondale 29er mountain bike which was my style, fit well, and it had high level components. It was an awesome time. I saw stunningly pretty sites, delicious custard tarts, coffee, and great conversation with Daniel. He is well versed in Portuguese history and speaks English well. I could not ask for a better guide or local tour company. I actually paid the price for two people even though it was just me and I feel that I got my money's worth. It was raining and I did not care. I wanted to ride in the rain and Daniel obliged me.
Our afternoon tour in Bairro Alto afforded us an opportunity for yet another private tour in English with the same guide Sofia from a previous tour. She was very knowledgeable of Bairro Alto. The stops along the way to the oldest library in Lisbon and many shopping areas. Beautiful to see the architecture and landmarks like the Hotel Avenida; first hotel in Lisbon still in existence. We walked to the famous elevator that takes you to the top for gorgeous views of Lisbon. Again, be prepared to do a lot of walking. I highly recommend this tour.
The three hour walking tour led us to several neighborhoods in the historic district of Lisbon. Our guide, Helder, gave us a summary of Lisbon's history before we left Rossio Square, to give context for what we were about to see. Then as we walked along, he filled in specific details for each area we passed through. The stories were interesting and he answered all our questions with insight and occasional humor. Helder was an outstanding guide!
Very enjoyable. Jorge was our guide, very clever guy. The weather helped as well and not to mention the wine. All in all, great experience and I shall definitely reccommend the tour to my friends back home.
