Learned a lot about the history of the neighbourhood. A lot of walking, especially uphill so be prepared.

Luis was very good prepared and explained a lot of things, especially historical knowledge. It was quite interesting an good to understand Portuguese history. From the restaurant recommendation at the end we expected more - well, food and prices were quite good, but it was too far away from Belem and we would have loved to have something with view to the river. So better leave that out.

Hi Andreas I'm glad you enjoyed the tour and the lunch. I'm sorry about the 'extra' walk to the restaurant, but remember we ended the tour by The Belém Tour, where there are no obvious nearby options to eat and drink. I hope to see you soon in Lisbon. Luís

A excellent private tour with Luis as are guide , Luis had a incredible knowledge of the Belem district, telling us loads of facts about the district and the history of Lisbon
Pointing out lots of things we would probably not have seen , and would definitely not known what they meant

Luis is also a very friendly guy , and very polite
When we left the tour he gave us his business card with his email address, and said if we had any questions about lisbom , to send him a email

If you are in Lisbon , and would like to explore the Belem district, then book up this tour , and hope Luis is your guide

Enjoyed the three hours. Excellent overview of the changes to the area and the history of Lisbon. Great context for how Lisbon/Belem has changed over time. Luis was helpful tailoring the tour to our interests and at the end finished with a coffee and some advise for other parts of our trip in Portugal.
