“Personal guided tour at reasonable price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2013

For a very reasonable price we had the services of our guide/driver, Nuno, for longer than the advertised number of hours as we went beyond Lisbon to Sintra and Cascais, as well as seeing some Lisbon highlights. He was a safe and skilled driver, his English was excellent and he was relaxed but knowledgable about the history, geography, food and culture of his city. We looked at brochures for other tour companies and Lisbon Riders was more reasonable, but we certainly didn't suffer as a result. Nuno recommended local foods when we stopped for lunch and made sure that we (two adults in our 60s and one in her 30s) had a tour to suit us. He was able to answer all our questions, not only about what we were seeing but also general ones about living in Portugal. Highly recommended!

“Lisbon Riders; the ONLY way to see the real Lisbon”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2013

What a fantastic experience it was viewing Lisbon with Lisbon Riders. Our guide Nuno was so passionate and knowledgable about his city, and the trips ensured my friends and I saw parts of in and around Lisbon we would NEVER have seen without Nuno. The small jeep added to the excitement and ensured we were not lost in the throng of a busy bus load of tourists, just us 4 Scotsmen!
If you love food (like I do), Nuno knows where to eat like the locals with some exceptional local cuisine tasted.
If you are wanting to see some real history away form the 'normal' tourist spots, then ride with the Lisbon Riders - YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!

“Awesome Lisbon Riders experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2013

Our tour guide, Nuno, was a wonderful ambassador for Lisbon and beyond! For 8 hours he provided us with in depth knowledge of the mystical city of Sintra, Cabo da Roca, Cascais, and a quaint seaside town where we enjoyed an excellent sampling of typical Portuguese fare. He even went out of his way to show us the place where Anthony Bourdain played Jogo de Chinquilho during his television program on Lisbon. We couldn't have asked for a better tour guide!

“Lisbon riders - two tours of fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2013

Lisbon riders tour guide was very friendly and showed a genuine interest in showing us tourists in and around Lisbon's hills and a full day in Sintra and Caiscas.

Nothing negative to write about - very good days out with Nuno from Lisbon riders with a personal touch of receiving pastries and lunch in a special Portuguese restaurant.

Recommend to anybody!

“Lisbon Riders- the #1 experience of our trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2013

We did a 3 day trip experience with Nuno. The first day was a tour of Lisbon- we were down back alleys, we were finding views that most Lisbon folks don't even know exist- we loved getting a first hand view of a city that Nuno knows so well. The next trip was to Sintra and the castle at the top of the hill. Again we listened as he told stories of the area, We travelled to a spot that showed us miles and miles of countryside that again most people have never experienced. We saw Belem, had the fancy pastry at Casa Pasteis, crossed the river to see first hand the 330 foot concrete statue of Christ, ate in out of the way small local cafes. Another day we drove to Obidos, Nazare and Sitio. These places are not to be missed.I sat beside an elderly lady as she was selling dried fish on the beach, we strolled cobblestone streets nodding to locals, had lunch at an out of the way local (full) cafe in a small village.Simply unreal. Do not waste your time and money going with another tour company that gives you- on the bus off the bus boring same old same old- tours. Those 3 days with Nuno will never be forgotten. We were given a taste of Portugal that most people will never ever experience. Thank you Nuno -our time with you was incredible.
