About The Portuguese Buddy, Lda
Friendship is about finding people who are your kind of crazy. There are many ways to get to know a country or city, but the best of all, without a doubt, is in the company of a friend. A friend who knows the best that the city has to offer – the tastiest food, the top spots, the strangest and quirkiest people, the greatest stories, and, above all, its essence. A friend who is more than just a friend, and who would turn a simple visit to Lisbon into an experience you’ll remember all your life. A friend who makes you laugh while you learn the history of the city, a friend who comforts you if you are down, a friend you could fall in love with, or who could perhaps introduce you to the person you’ll walk up the aisle with (that’s if you don´t already have a second half). A friend who is always ready to help you, and whoever is with you. The craziest friend you´ll ever meet, and, of course, someone who you can have confidence in, while at the same time they’re showing you the best that Lisbon has to offer. Your Portuguese friend will be your most faithful friend. Your most likeable friend. Your most hospitable friend. Your funniest friend. Your most romantic friend and your most adventurous friend. You will never forget your Portuguese friend. The Portuguese Buddy.
