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.

Amazing trip

Half an hour to get by boat from Peniche to the small island "Berlengas". A very well preserved place where nature is steel untouchable. Lovely beach and old fort worth a visit.

Our trip was very cool. The guide, Nuno, was very cool and helpful. I would recommend this trip to others. Kayaking was fun, the water was clear. The food at the only restaurant is not great, therefore i would suggest to bring smth with you!

Lisbon offers so much for all types of visitors - culture, food, walking, beaches, history. The transport ticket is excellent value as you can rude trams, metro and trains. Walking us the way to see Alfama but be warned its steep and lots of steps, however it's worth it. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

We recently went on the private tour of Berlengas with Nuno A. and it was unbelievable! He was very accommodating and knowledgable, and it made our tour very enjoyable. This trip is a must-do for anyone visiting Lisbon! Would highly recommend!

We enjoyed our experiences with the Around Lisbon company. When we travel abroad, we usually choose to take private tours and this company did not disappoint. Our family of four booked the Mystic Forest and the Big Blue Tour. Both days were very enjoyable and very different. For Mystic Forest, we saw so much in one day! Diogo was our... More

Myself (32) and my mother (65) both thoroughly enjoyed ourselves on our day out in sintra and Cascais so it definitely appeals to all ages. sintra was truly magical and the little harbour we visited in cascais was definitely fun!

I returned to Lisbon in July 2016. My first trip in October 2015 proved to be such an enjoyable experience that I booked a return trip. My trip in July 2016 saw me discovering more of Lisbon's charms. I was also able to discover by train the easily accessible towns of Sintra, Cascais and Estoril. Lisbon is a fascinating city....

I am a professor and teach in the hospitality and tourism industry, and travel extensively. I will avoid this company at all costs in the future, and recommend to fellow travelers to do the same.

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
