"Our tour was perfect! We chose a private full day tour of Lisbon. Our driver, Hugo, was so accommodating. Being an older couple we have some restrictions. He managed to tailor our day carefully to cover according to our needs.His historical knowledge, pride in his country, and perspectives were so informative. If you are lucky he could be your driver too"

Dopo la quinta volta che vado a Lisbona ho assaporato e scoperto grazie a lui nuovi e insoliti aspetti della città, grazie grazie grazie"

"Eddie was an amazing tour guide. We were able to see all the great sites in Lisbon during a 6 hour tour. We learned about the history of the city, the history of Portugal and were able to ask lots of questions. The tour was very comfortable (great mix of driving and walking) and we enjoyed a "local" lunch with Eddie. Also, Eddie was able to get us the famous Pasteis de Belem in 5 minutes without waiting in line. This private tour is worth every dollar."

"From the moment our private guide Vasco picked us up at our hotel, we were treated like royalty. Vasco's knowledge of Lisbon is extensive. From the hilltop overlooking Lisbon to the back streets of Alfama, where we were treated to coffee in a local shop, to St. Jeronimous Monastery and warm pastries in Belem to churches and plazas of Lisbon, Vasco imparted the history and culture of the area. Vasco is gracious and accommodating. He looked for opportunities to take photos of us so we would remember our stay in Lisbon. This private tour is well worth the time and price."

"We were fortunate to have Vasco as our guide. He picked us up near our accommodation in a comfortable van and took us through the city. He was very personable and engaged every member of our family in conversation. His knowledge of the city and its history is extensive and very interesting. He knew all the best spots to take us to, and helped take photos of us. I cannot recommend him highly enough - it was perfect start to our time in Lisbon."
