Owner description: 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.

“Excellent tour company!”
Reviewed May 6, 2014

Around Lisbon is a well-organized and friendly tour company. The guide was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about his work. Additionally, even though the other guests cancelled at the last minute, the company still ran the day-long tour for just one. I would highly recommend this group to anyone visiting Lisbon.

“Beautiful, warm people”
Reviewed May 1, 2014

My friend and I took the "Mystic Forest (Sintra, Cabo da roca and Cascais)" tour with this company and were absolutely delighted! Raquel and Anna were easy-going, fun and friendly, answered all of our questions and allowed us enough time in all of the places to truly enjoy the breathtaking scenery, without ever rushing us. Everything was beautifully organized, they came to pick us up on time and took care of everybody in the group during the whole day. I am sure I'll go on more trips with them the next time I come to Lisbon! I strongly recommend this company because of the wonderful people who work there and the amazing tours they have to offer!

“Fun time with like minded people”
Reviewed April 27, 2014

When we met up with Nuno he already had the other couple who would be touring that day in his van. Although we were generations apart (we're the older ones), Nuno took care to balance what each couple wanted to see. Just being willing to head out with a local was something we had in common. They were looking for an orientation to the city; we were trying to see the highlights before leaving the next day on a cruise.

Plenty of vista visits and longer stops where we asked for more time to walk around and take photos. Even a stop at McDonalds where Nuno apologized over and over about getting a coffee only to realize we all wanted a bathroom stop and my wife and I wanted a drink with ice while the other couple had a snack!

Nuno had a sense of humor about any difficulties we encountered. This including the excellent lunch that dragged on and on through no fault of anyone except for being a beautiful Sunday in October packing the restaurant.

Nuno offered to run a little longer because of the delay which got us some excellent views of the city as dusk turned to dark.

Great tour and we'll be talking to them again when four of us visit Lisbon in May 2015.

“2 excellent tours! Thanks Nuno & Rui”
Reviewed March 25, 2014

We took 2 tours with Around Lisbon: the Faith & Heritage Tour and the Golden Plains Tour. The Faith & Heritage Tour was great - Rui took us to some fascinating sites and he was very generous with information and answering all our questions. Our favourite stop on the tour was Obidos - a must see for any tourist - though Fatima really is a place to visit. Though we are not very religious we did feel the spirituality of this holy site.
Our favourite tour, however, was the Golden Plains Tour with Nuno. Plan on visiting Evora! It is an AMAZING city with more historical sites than you can fit into a day of touring. From ancient Roman columns to a very old Gothic church to a Bone Ossuary - the sites our fascinating and diverse. The tour ended with Nuno taking us to some must-see ancient megalithic monuments dating back 7000 years - we were floored! The Megalithic Circle dates back to the time of Stonehenge and you can get up close to the Menhirs and see ancient carvings not eroded with time. During our vacation, we took 6 tours with 5 different touring companies and my 8 year old daughter's favourite tour guide was Nuno! He was easy-going, super informative and never rushed us. Generous and friendly we thought Nuno was great!
