Paulo is a fantastic tour guide who has an absolute wealth of knowledge about Lisbon and won't disappoint even the most avid and independent travellers. He took me to the most beautiful neighbourhoods and explained the complex history of them as we walked down nooks and crannies to observe the juxtaposition between the old and the new. He enlightened me about the different tiles that had been used on the buildings and the architectural traditions that had been kept by the citizens whilst being repaired. I really enjoyed Alfama, that reminded me of the Kasbah in Algeria, and he explained the fascinating history of the moorish influences on this city. He also took me to the flea market, pantheon and areas where you could view the whole of Lisbon. He explained to me the culture and passion of food that Portugal has as we sat down for lunch at the Expo 98. One thing is for sure, I have learnt so much about this beautiful city from Paulo that I will take it back with me to improve the quality of my life in London. Don't go anywhere else for a tour! You won't regret the experience!

I would highly recommend doing the Discover Lisbon tour when first arriving in the city! Paulo provides a vast overview of the history of the city, which really brings the monuments and buildings to life. There is so much context that I would not have gotten had I only wandered around on my own. I was able to take lots of great pictures of the main attractions but also the streets of the different neighborhoods (Alfama was my favorite). This tour is offered at a great value, and I will recommend to anyone who visits!

Our guide, Paulo, took us on an introductory tour of the city, encompassing the Baixa, Chiado and Alfama neighbourhoods. We saw many interesting historical and archeological sites, all the while hearing about the history of the city from the Carthaginians through to the present day, and the cultural influences of Portuguese colonialism. Paulo’s knowledge seemed inexhaustible. He gave us tips on places to visit (and not to visit) and on places to eat, which we found very useful in the remaining days of our visit (and hopefully the next). Mid-tour, we sat in the Largo do Carmo, discussing the Carnation Revolution over coffee and finally, we wound our way down through the intricate streets of old Lisbon, amongst preparations for the feast of St Antony, glimpsing great views of the city. At the end of the tour, we couldn’t believe that so much time had passed and realised that Paolo had significantly overrun his time. The tour was fascinating. We have done several walking tours of European cities, finding them the best way to get our bearings. This one was up there among the best.

My girlfriend and I were guided by Paulo on the 'explore Lisbon' tour today.

It was our first day here, and Paulo met us under the arch at the end of the main street in the baixa, not far from the waterfront. We talked about what we wanted out of the tour, how long we were staying in the city etc, and I believe Paulo was tailoring the experience to meet our desires.

As we wandered from the baixa up through the old town of Alfama, Paulo gave us a run down of the city's trading and religious history, an appreciation of the recent changes the city has made to help generate growth, and even clued us up on house prices and cultural insights about why people eating late.

We saw parks and cathedrals, palaces, markets and even hidden, unknown spots with amazing views that we could never have stumbled on without his knowledge of his city. Clearly he knew his stuff and had a passion for this place you could almost taste.

We took our time, walked at our own pace, stopped and asked questions when we had them, (which Paulo dutifully answered; a discussion on the origins of tea and marmalade was particularly thorough and interesting), and nearly 4 hours later we finished the tour close to where we started, full of enthusiasm to revisit places of particular interest later in the day.

Throughout the day Paulo recommended places to eat, swim, travel, shop and listen to fado. We've fallen in love with this city immediately, and it's in no small part thanks to this tour.

As it says on the website, the best way to explore Lisbon is by foot, and we went to places and had time to digest this city that we never would have got driving or being on a tuk tuk. Would 100% recommend to anyone visiting here. Thanks Paulo!
