The trip to Arrabida was awesome! We went to some of the most beautiful beaches in Portugal, which still remain undiscovered by the mass tourism. Ana is a great host, friendly, flexible, engaging, informative and passionate about sharing the beauty of her country. We talked a lot and I feel I’ve got a bit of an insider’s view about the life in Portugal. Thank you for the amazing experience!

Ana took me me to Arrabida on my birthday. Even though it was a paid tour, her and her sister made it feel like it was a true outing with friends and not just a tour service. They showed me the local spots and really made me feel as if I were a native of the country. They even had snacks and drinks prepared! The trip was the icing on the top of the cake for my birthday! 5 stars! Arrabida is one of the most beautiful beaches in Portugal and it's definitely a must see! Go check it out with Insiders! They are a top tour company and really stress service! Ana is a fantastic tour guide and knows all the insides and outs of Portugal!

My 7 year old & I took the Lisbon Hills Tour. Our guide, Andreissa, exceeded our expectations! She showed us the back routes to famous sites (avoiding crowds) and overflowed with local information, as she was a native Lisbonite. She even accommodated my jet-lagged kiddo by adjusting the tour to meet his needs, yet still seeing all the sites! I would highly recommend Andreissa and Insiders as a tour service like none other. As another reviewer put so aptly, It was like meeting an old friend in their city and having them show you around. We plan on another tour before our trip in Portugal is over!

We had the blue paradise experience with Ana and now I wish we have time to do more experiences the company offers as well. They delivered exactly what was promised from the website: come as a guest, leave as a friend. Ana was a wonderful host, she is informative, super fun, authentic, energetic and kind. She didn't mind spending some extra time to make sure our experience was complete. Oh and the place we went to was divine. I still can't get over how beautiful it was. She topped off the experience by letting us having a mud mask experience on the beach, so much fun! I seriously can't wait to go back to Portugal and have another experience with the Insiders group.

Insiders were recommended to us by a Lisbon local for booking activities that felt more personal than the typical tourist companies. We had a terrific time! It felt like a friend was showing us the hidden gems of her hometown. We did the Blue Paradise tour to Arrabida with Ana. The beach was absolutely beautiful. We had driven on our own the previous weekend to the beaches in Costa Vicentina and Algarve, so I was afraid that going to Arrabida on a tour might be a downgrade. Not at all. The setting was stunning and the experience was unique. Ana was engaging and funny. We felt like we got a good slice of Portuguese life. She brought some traditional Portuguese snacks for us, and taught us how to cover ourselves with clay to moisturize our skin like the locals do. Ana gave good recommendations on what to do, but was also really flexible in letting us choose how we wanted to spend our time. After the beach, Ana took us to Setubal where we had one of the best seafood dinners in our three months in Lisbon. If you want to feel the authentic local vibe in Lisbon, I definitely recommend Insiders.
