What People Are Saying

"Gostaria de recomendar imensamente o passeio guiado sobre a história da escravidão no Imperio Português, que pude realizar com o excelente guia senhor Rui. O passeio permite conhecer a história da escravidão juntamente com a história política de Portugal. Ouvir essa parte da história ao longo de uma caminhada pelas ruas de Lisboa, visitando locais em que ocorreu, nos faz pensar e conhecer a história de uma forma diferente."
"Very interesting tour! Rui has a great knowledge about the subject and about Lisbonn and portuguese history in general. You really feel the passion when you talk with him and he is a very pleasant person. If you want to know more about this (hidden) side of history, in which portuguese had a very imortant role, and wich is in general summarized in "Portuguese great Explorations", don't hesitate and book this tour. You will enjoy! Thiandella."
"Had the alfama tour with Ninetta. It was absolutely perfect, I highly recommend it. Ninetta was very professional, had perfect English and she really is a great guide"
"Mein Freund und ich hatten eine 3 Stündige Tour in Lissabon am Vorabend gebucht. Einfach klasse Tour! Hat super viel Spaß gemacht und der Guid war richtig freundlich und konnte uns viele Infos während der Tour geben. Die Führung fand in Deutsch von einem deutschen Guid statt. Die Gruppengröße, mit 6 Personen, war top. Auf den freien Strecken wurde Gas gegeben und die Einweisung am Anfang war auch optimal."
"Très bonne visite dans le quartier de l’Alfama avec Pierre. Nous avons appris beaucoup de choses sur la ville. Et ces conseils ont été précieux pour la suite de notre séjour ! Nous recommandons cette activité pour une visite originale de Lisbonne. Merci Pierre"

"We found Katrina to be a very inclusive guide. She was aware of the age spread of our group, and made sure no one was left behind. Her stories of history and folklore Meade the tour interesting. The tastings we experienced were fun too. Lunch was so good."
