About
With so many monuments and neighborhoods in Lisbon, it can be hard to know where to start, so get oriented with ease on a private, half-day city tour. Avoid the hassle of public transit and ride through the city's most scenic districts in air-conditioned comfort while a personal guide shares insight into Lisbon culture. Historic districts like Alfama, Chiado, Baixa, and Belem are best explored by foot, so you hop out for a guided walk around.

          This tour covered the picturesque as well as the history or Portugal
          We hired a private driver thru Viator. Our driver was a historian on the history of the Jewish people in Portugal. We most likely saw sights that many tourists miss on their one day there. Lisbon is an amazing city with a rich proud culture and its people are very warm and friendly.

          Nice good review of Lisbon and Sintra
          The driver/guide was very knowledgable, he helped us choose a good local wine at lunch and helped us skip long lines at some of the placed we visited.

          Excellent Tour
          Diego was wonderful. When I signed up for the tour I didn’t know how much Jewish history there would be in Lisbon. I was amazed and Diego was very knowledgeable and even did advance studying on our last name prior to be even more informative. My daughter and I learned a ton and found the tour really interesting and encouraging. There is Jewish history in Lisbon /Portugal that influenced this region and the rest of the Jewish community around the world.

          Wonderful presentation of the Jewish community of Lisbon from centuries ago to current timeago
          Our guide Daniel brought the historical neighborhood of Alfama to life as he explained the Jewish cultural experience there of many centuries ago. We got a great encapsulation of Jewish and Portuguese history in a fun and interactive tour.

          Wonderful tour of Jewish Lisbon that was
          Daniel was a fantastic tour guide. He had a font of interesting tidbits about jewish life in Lisbon. Although the weather was rainy, he eagerly took us through the Jewish areas of the Alfalma district, sharing his knowledge about what it was like to be a Jew or later a marino in the 1500s. This was a highlight of our trip

          Wonderful way to explore Sephardic history in a long day from Lisbon
          We had the most wonderful (long) day from Lisbon to Valencia Alicatara, Marvão and Castelo de Vide exploring Sephardic roots. People thought we were crazy because we really covered territory but we saw parts of Portugal tourists usually don’t see, we had it to ourselves, at times with no one else in sight and we got to explore the history of our people. It was awesome! Daniel was wonderful as a guide for the day. We felt like we stepped back in time. High recommend for anyone interested in the subject matter. Just do it. The Inquisition Museum in Castelo de Vide is phenomenal.

          Informative and Interesting Tour
          Daniel was a wonderful and informative guide and the sights we saw were different from the normal tours undertaken when traveling. There's a uniqueness to the Templar lore, and this tour, and Daniel's knowledge, highlight this. In short, we were very happy with this tour and especially our tour guide.

          Second (amazing) experience with this company!
          Excellent tour! It was very romantic to know more about the historical Portuguese couple Pedro and Inês! Our guide Diogo was amazing. This was not the first tour we have done with Essencia da Latitude. Last time it was a half-day tour in Lisbon and it was wonderful!! , but I sincerely recommend other tourists to visit other places in Portugal (rather than the capital Lisbon) with this company!

          Diogo is the absolute best! Definitely take the tour!
          Whenever we fly from the US to Europe, we always plan a half day private tour when we hit the ground so we can get a quick overview of the city and so we can stay busy and awake until nightfall to try to beat the jetlag. Our flight into Portugal was delayed and we were worried we would miss our tour but our amazing guide, Diogo, adjusted his schedule and was at the hotel waiting when we got there. We spent several hours with Diogo on that first afternoon and were absolutely amazed with what we learned about Portugal in general and Lisbon in particular. He tailored his tour to what we were most interested in and gave us a pretty solid idea as to what else we should be doing the rest of the week. We enjoyed that first tour so much that we booked a full day tour to Sintra and the coast later that night and took that tour two days later. Again, Diogo was a phenomenal guide. His passion for what he does makes the tours that much more exciting. We had tons of questions about all sorts of things and he was great with getting us the details we were looking for. He gave great suggestions of books to read when we got home and places to visit when we come back. We would have loved Portugal anyway but Diogo made us feel a connection to it that we wouldn't have otherwise. If you get a chance, take a tour with Diogo. You will be so incredibly happy that you did!

          Thorough overview of Jewish History in Portugal
          The tour of Jewish Lisbon was fantastic. We were picked up at our hotel, driven to various sites and finally returned to our hotel. Our guide Diogo was awesome, knowledgeable, courteous. Seeing the secrets of the Jews who were forced to convert but practiced in secrecy was fascinating. We were given a great overview of the Jews in Portugal which was relevant throughout our travels in Portugal, beyond Lisbon.

          Fantastic trip. Highly recommended
          Our trip to Knights of Templar Tomar (including the Tomar synagogue), Almourol Castle and the Tower of Dornes was fantastic. This is the second time we have done a tour with Diogo. He is an excellent guide. He is extremely knowledgeable about the subject matter and his enthusiasm for this part of history makes this a most enjoyable trip. My wife and I highly recommend this tour.

          Stunning historic monument
          Stunning monastery with the fabled Knights Templar altar of initiation that will take your breath away. A few stairs(about 100) will take you there but there are many stopping off points inside where one can take great photos.

        Diogo was our guide on this tour. He was spectacular. He had an excellent knowledge of the history of Lisbon including the architecture and stories around the landmarks. He was also attentive to our questions and he paid attention to our preferences and curated the trip around it. I would totally recommend rather say this should be a must for every first time visitor to get this tour on their first day so you can plan where you want to further explore with the knowledge of the history you just received.

        Thank you Diogo for our excellent private tour of Lisbon. You have a natural gift for this type of tour - giving us clear, fun and interesting facts of this lovely city and walking us through its amazing history. Despite the tiny streets and difficult traffic, we always felt safe and were very impressed by your calm driving style.

        We highly recommend asking for Diogo to give you this half day tour if you want to see the highlights of Lisbon in a few short hours!

        I have been to Lisbon before, but decided to do this tour with a friend who was new to the city. I couldn't have been more pleased! I learned so much, and visited "off the beaten path" sights, that I never would have experienced on my own. Vasco was excellent...extremely knowledgeable, flexible and concerned about giving us the very best experience. He certainly did! I highly recommend this tour with our wonderful guide, Vasco.

        Diogo was a great tour guide. If you like to get lots of information and really learn the history of Lisbon- this is the tour for you.
        It was very relaxed. Diogo had a great itinerary mapped out. He drove very slowly so that we never felt rushed. We got out at many places and strolled around. We skipped the line at the bakery in Belem.
        Diogo is very personable so it felt like a tour with a friend rather than a tour guide. We were sorry we didn’t do the tour at the start of your stay. It would have really laid a good foundation of knowledge. Well worth the money.

        We went on the 4hour private tour of Lisbon with our amazing guide Diogo. His knowledge, customer care and humour are absolutely excellent. He also took into account anything we were particularly interested in and adapted the tour accordingly. We would highly recommend for anyone to take this tour as it really is the best way to see the highlights of this beautiful city. Thank you Diogo for a truly enlightening and wonderful experience.

        Best way to start your trip to Lisbon! Diogo was the best tour guide I could have asked for. I was picked up at the airport and we spent almost 4 hours seeing most of the major landmarks around the city. He gives a fantastic level of details and can answer many questions about the history or architecture. Truly the best way to start your trip. Trust his recommendations for food and activities! He won’t steer you wrong.

        We were visiting Lisbon on June 4th, 2022 and we had the Private City Tour: Highlights of Lisbon with Diogo. The four of us in a group really enjoyed this tour with Diogo. Diogo was very informative about the history of Lisbon, the architecture of the buildings and the various neighbourhoods of the city. We finished our excursion with a custard tart in Belem.

        Diogo was an excellent tour guide. He clearly has a deep passion for the history of Portugal and shared many interesting facts about the places we visited. Very engaging and friendly tour. Would definitely recommend his private tour to anyone interested in an overview of Lisbon's historical sites.

        Diogo was an amazing tour guide. He took us for a private exploration all around Lisbon and shared many historic facts to understand how beautiful and amazing this city brings. As a local he took us to many different parts in the city and was a truly memorable experience especially being our first time here. Highly recommend!

        If you should be so lucky to have the gentleman named Vasco guide you around the city then you are sure to have a great time and enjoy his company immensely. We travelled as 3 x married couples (aged 30-48) and were all utterly charmed by his gentle wit, intelligence and calming demeanour, but what really shone through and made the experience so great was his pride and love for Portugal and the city of Lisbon. An unforgettable day, highly recommended.
