"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."

"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."

"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."

"Great experience, from help when I called to enquire about the eco tuk tour through to the excellent guide Hugo. Pre booked two hour tuk tour, with Hugo who clearly loves and is very proud of his city and wants to share his passion with his guests. We were on a cruise, this direct option is miles cheaper that on board booked tours and is straightforward, meet point in Rue Commercio is 10 mins walk from cruise terminal."
