Description:

Around Lisbon is not your typical Tour Company, as you may have known them....

Around Lisbon is not your typical Tour Company, as you may have known them. In fact, we don’t like to think of Around Lisbon as a business. It is rather the special life project of two friends, who wanted to develop a friendly local company to cater to like-minded people from all over the world. Our goal is to be your "local friends" who help you enjoy Lisbon and Portugal to the fullest. That makes our day too.

We booked both our tours (Berlenga and Sintra/Cascais) through Viator and it turned out both tours were with Around Lisbon tour groups. Diogo, our wonderful guide for Berlenga, was awesome. And David, our guide for Sintra/Cascais, was excellent, as well. Both tours were well organized and the timing was good. I really appreciated the company confirming all the information by... More

Although it will appear expensive at the beginning, I would suggest to take a tour of the city by Tuk Tuk. you will see places that you cannot see walking around.

This tour was the highlight of our trip. Joanna picked us up and dropped us off at the hotel. The island was stunning. The only negatives - the boat ride over was rough and made us seasick., and the water was way too cold to snorkel.

We booked through Viator so you get the tour company that offers the tour. In this case it was David from Around Lisbon Tours in his trusty blue minivan. One other couple, in their 80s joined us and off we set on a whistle-stop (traffic occasionally permitting) tour of the best attractions and view points of the city. Several of... More

We found about this tour through our hotel in Lisbon. What a wonderful experience! We planned initially for a half day tour to Sintra but the hotel suggested a full day one instead to include the beaches and other areas. Glad we did! Our tour guide, unfortunately his name escapes me, was excellent! He seamlessly alternated between Portuguese, Italian and... More

My friend and I booked the tour through Viator so didn't know who the tour operator was but were contacted by Gil at Around Lisbon the day before to confirm our trip and pick up point. From this initial contact to the end of the tour the staff at Around Lisbon were great, particularly Nuno who was a fab guide.... More

We had a wonderful time with Rui. We did the Templar River Tour! It was a fun day at a nice pace! Rui was informative and was like traveling with a friend. He was very patient with our little boy who was quite active at each castle. We had a wonderful lunch and explored Tomar, went to convent do Christo... More
