“Magic in Lisbon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

Alex is a wonderful guide. Her vast knowledge, ability to serve up history in a way that was fascinating, dramatic and thorough and her sense of humor all contributed to a terrific time. She listened to our preferences (not too much touristy stuff) and delivered on two days worth of well chosen sites, food, and vistas. She was also particularly sensitive to my difficult knee, and was always able on the spot to modify a journey so that we walked when I could and used transportation when I was uncomfortable. On the spot switches were nothing for her and everything we did was SO worth it. A tip: Make sure she introduces you to her favorite dessert tart. It's isn't beautiful but it's unforgettable. Meg S

“Touring Lisbon, sintred & more”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013 via mobile

My tours with Alex were the most memorable days of my two week vacation in Spain and Portugal. Her knowledge, recommendations and ehthusiasm made the tours very special. I can't imagine anyone ever doing a better job.

We plan to return to Portugal again in the near future, and expect to use Alex again as we explore areas north of Lisbon.

I can't say enough about how much i loved Alex's tours.

“Great Food Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

We did the food tour and Adrianna (one of the owners) was our guide. The food and wine was great and we tried many things which we wouldn't have on our own. Fun experience and highly recommend!

“A must!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I have taken several private tours in various cities throughout Europe and this is definitely one of the best. Our guide, Alex, took us to places in Lisbon that we would have never found on our own and her background story of each place added to the enjoyment. I would highly recommend you book a tour or more at the beginning of your stay.

“Fantastic way too see and feel lisbon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013 via mobile

We went of the port wine tasting tour with elsa. Meeting up at 3 pm the then wandered around the city and were shown and told about history and lots of little tips and secrets. Elsa's knowledge and pashion for her city was wonderful and she made sure we had a interesting evening at our own pace. Grapes and bites - what a place. Fine food , port, company and music.

Thank you jane and claire
