Thoroughly recommend the half day tour. We had Tiago as our guide and I only see now we could have booked a full day and it would have been wonderful with Tiago. He certainly knows his history and would recommend him to anyone interested in the history of everything to do with Lisbon. Genuinely missed his constant narration of Lisbon when we had to part. It is truly a beautiful experience to have a luxury vehicle, instant access and a wonderful guide with you in this magical city. We will definitely be asking for Tiago to take us in more depth into Lisbon on another visit to the city. I whole heartedly recommend this experience to any single, couple or group looking to get to know Lisbon very well, very informatively and in a short amount of time. We took Tiago’s recommendation of a lovely Portuguese restaurant for our evening meal and thanks for the recommendation Tiago and for a lovely day in Lisbon we will always remember.

Our first visit to Lisbon and it was incredible. Rui was our private guide for a 4 hour Lisbon city tour which was superb. We were so happy with the him and the tour that we booked him for the next day for a half day tour to Sintra, which was also amazing. Punctual, experienced and absolutely loves his city. I highly recommend this tour & guide to those travelling to Lisbon

Our tour with Tiago was wonderful. We learned a lot of Portuguese history and saw many beautiful sites around this amazing city. Tiago made it interesting and fun. He is professional, knowledgeable and very polite.
We are three friends, Che, Nildy and Lissy and we highly recommend Tiago. Oh! And we even ate Pastéis de Belem!

We were met at the airport, given a wonderful tour by a great driver/tour guide who spoke perfect English and dropped us off at our hotel at the end. Our flight was over an hour late and immigration took a long time but he waited and greeted us with a smile. He did not reduce the tour which we fully expected and made helpful suggestions for an evening walk and dinner. He and the vehicle were immaculate. We felt comfortable, safe and saw a lot. This is a great way to get an overview of Lisbon and a we will definitely use the company again. We do not hesitate to recommend them.

We (myself, my wife, and sister in-law) had a half day Lisbon tour in December 2019 on our way to Prague. Mr. Andre Gomes picked us up at the airport with a Mercedes Van. He showed us the best of Lisbon that you can squeeze in 4 hours. Andre was great! He knows Lisbon past and present and had the passion to share with us. He is a people person - we had fun and laughter throughout the tour. We even stopped at his neighborhood bakery - Pasteis de Belem (best pastry in Lisbon) and bought us some of his favorites. Thanks Andre, for such a wonderful service!

We had a great time on our tour! Daniel was super friendly and knowledgeable about Lisbon. We got to see so much in just a short amount of time, which was really nice! We went through many of the neighborhoods, and got to get out and walk around to get pictures and see things up close. Daniel took us to a great place with an amazing view of the entire city which was really nice. We really enjoyed ourselves and would highly recommend this!

Andres was our driver and he was amazing! My son and I only had 1 day in Lisbon and decided to make the most out of it by doing a half day tour. Andres was so knowledgeable and enthusiastic about his country and culture it made it that much more enjoyable to learn about the rich history of Portugal. He was also very patient and accommodating when we needed to take breaks for photos, snacks and Starbucks! I have recommended his tour and one of my friends already asked me for his information! Thank you Andres for teaching us so much about Lisbon and the Portuguese culture!

Took a half-day tour with this company, having read great reviews on Viator and TripAdvisor. Unfortunately, our day was mediocre at best. No confirmation the night before for pickup time (happily, the driver was punctual at 9am, which is what I had guessed), and the vehicle was clean with water bottles and wifi. However, there was poor communication as to where we were going, and very little opportunity to guide the driver as to what we wanted to see. He was more a driver than guide, seeming not to know that some sites had entry fees. We only knew what we were going to see next once we got there. No actual explanation at the site (he stayed in the car). Waited for him for about 10 minutes while he went to get a sandwich. No opportunity to do any of the other things (eg, eggtarts) that other reviewers did. Now, honestly, that's all fine. It was just a disappointing tour and things like that happen, since it's hard to please every tourist, right? But given that I found this all disappointing and less than what I had expected based on all the excellent reviews, I made complaint. The response is what upsets me: Was told the driver had many tours without issue, that we got everything we were promised, and no refund was to be given. The condescending tone in which this response was written, and the frank apathy of a single line stating "no refund" is what upsets me. I rose concern with the company to indicate I was dissatisfied, and to see if they'd consider some partial refund or at least look into the issues I found unsatisfactory. I was blown off instead. The whole thing left me with a sour taste. In future, I hope they treat their customers as guests rather than burdens. Very disappointed the tour wasn't as friendly as I had expected, but that seems to come down from management. Can't recommend them in good conscience.
