What a brilliant day out in Lisbon thanks to our guides Nuno & Gustov. They took us to see all the main attractions and their favourite places. Their historical knowledge of the city know no bounds.
We can thoroughly recommend this tour. Our short holiday would have not have been so enjoyable if we had not met these young men and taken this tour.

You must take this tour and ask for these 2 guides - you will not be disappointed.

We felt like we learned the most on this one day city tour. We started off in Al fama and walked all around. We did not go in the castle, but we were fine with that. We toured in the city and out to Belam as well. We were the only ones signed up, so it ended up being a private tour which was awesome. Our guide was very conscious of what we wanted to do and see and made sure we were very happy the whole day.They picked us up and dropped us off at the hotel as well. Highly recommend.

Our guide, David, was born and brought up in the heart of Lisbon and shared his love of the city in a delightful and informative way. We were introduced to the different eras of Lisbon’s past by visiting key sites in chronological order. It was an amazing tour!

The guide provided by the company is very friendly and well mannered. However there ends all the good things. She doesn't have enough knowledge of history nor the proficiency in English to explain the History of Lisbon. All our questions were answered by "I really do not know, I need to check". The history tour started with the Roman period, coming through the Moors. However it was not structured thereafter. Not much home work was done.
On conversation we understand that this a third job for her to fill in the time and earn a few Euros.
We are thoroughly disappointed and feel cheated by this company who has engaged an inexperienced guide. I who booked this tour cut a sorry figure with the rest of the group (5) .
I would like the company to investigate and compensate us.

Dear John: Thank you for your feedback. We don't recognize the person you are trying to characterize, as we only have two women doing the Lisbon tour, and they both speak excellent English and are very knowledgeable in History. However, I hope you are aware that there is probably no one that knows all the historic facts about Lisbon, as it simply is too complex and vast. We would kindly ask you to please write us an email, so we can investigate, as suggested, and analyze any possible compensation. Please add the tour date, so we can identify your booking. Thanks in advance, Around Lisbon Management

We had David as our leader. He was prompt, though we had some troubles with the
minivan. We walked a good part of the old town and then went to Belem and the
Basilica which houses a large crèche which is somewhat hidden. A tasty highlight in Belem was the pasteis de Belem which is truly the best. Nice to see some sites that I may have not found. Went back to some places on our last day for more in depth
visits.

Such a pleasant, friendly and efficient small company, a joy to deal with. First contact was with Cláudia online, and she happy to tailormake a 5hr tour for 4pax, as we were coming from Porto for the day.
Booked "Brunch" cafe for breakfast as it just a few minutes walk from train station, it was excellent by the way, and "Around Lisbon" to pick us up from there.
David our guide for the day, arrived to the minute, in his brand new 8 seater, and WOW, what a fantastic day we had.
David, with impeccable English, gave us the most comprehensive guided tour of his beautiful city of Lisbon, his knowledge and passion for his city was infectious, and we recommend him, and his company, 100%.
We were treated to all the areas and sights a larger vehicle could not access, we had several inside visits and photostops and were treated by David to Lisbons famous custard tarts, delicious!!
Yes, "Around Lisbon" are true professionals, and deserve all the plaudits they receive for, their service and staff would be hard to beat!!
We look forward to meeting and touring with them again in the future.

Took the easy way out and booked a city tour rather than doing my research. Very glad I did - we went to places I probably wouldn't have made it to plus had helpful information from Luis, our guide. We started in Alfama with a view from an overlook, visited the cathedral, went to Belem, break for lunch, went to the elevator de Justa, cistern of the waters, Parque Eduardo VII, and probably other places I'm forgetting. Luis knew a lot of history and looked after our comfort, very helpful.

We were very lucky to have Nuno as our guide. Excellent knowledge of the city and buildings in particular. Nothing was too much trouble and he took us off the beaten track to see things we would have missed otherwise. Charming and interesting, we could not have asked for more on a day where the weather was against us. Nuno gave us a long tour and then jpined us for a drink afterwards - a real pleasure.

Rui was our guide. Very knowledgeable and approachable . Great being picked up at our hotel. Comfortable van. Doubt we would have covered the same amount of places with the background knowledge by ourselves in one day. Would recommend to friends and family if they visit Lisbon.
