What a great idea - keep up with your running routine while seeing the sites of your vacation destination! Every aspect of this activity went well. The company was very accommodating in terms of scheduling my run - date, time for pick-up, and route. My running partner, Nuno, was courteous and knowledgeable. The route gave me an overview of downtown Lisbon and Nuno provided interesting information about the city as we ran. I'm not used to such hilly terrain but Nuno had no problem with me slowing down as necessary.

I scheduled the run for the first morning in Lisbon so that I could get some orientation to the city. This worked out very well. Following my run with Nuno, my travel partner and I walked around many of the same places I had run; this time stopping along the way at various shops and the different eateries he had suggested (the latter of which turned out to be some of the best meals of the vacation!).

Every aspect of this activity was enjoyable. It was one of the highlights of the vacation. I would recommend it for any runners visiting Lisbon.

As a runner, I can think of no better way to experience a new city than in the company of local resident who is also passionate about running and his city. My running guide from Lisbon City Runners, along with being a wonderful human being, was an expert guide with deep knowledge of Lisbon's culture, architecture, history and people. He had great advice on what to do, what to see, where to eat, etc. Plus, he delivered a great workout. A strong runner, he could set the pace for the strongest runners, but was courteous enough to adjust his stride to a slow poke like me. It added up to a very memorable experience, a highlight of my trip to Portugal. Highly recommended for anyone who likes to run.

If you want to discover really great places - including the "big sights" as well as the less frequented places combined with a little exercise during your holidays LISBON CITY RUNNERS is exactly what you need!

Piedro and Nuno are experienced runners and very nice guides who know about the city as well as about motivating people who are "a little out of breath".

You can choose between different routes and there's always a short and a long version. We did the Gardens Run which can be highly recommended if you like green places hidden in a big and mostly paved city.

There's only one thing you should know if you book the tour: it starts at 7.15 am due to the weather conditions (later it might get really hot!) and the people on the streets (at 7.15 am almost nobody is in the streets)
