Of our entire 2 week holiday, this tour was our favorite experience. We found most tour guides fill time with jokes and socializing—but not Rui—who is a wealth of knowledge about the history of Lisbon, the street art "scene", it's players and artists, the evolution of the form. If other tours have more reviews, I can only imagine it's because their tours accommodate 10-12 people or more, whereas Rui maintains a small and nimble group of 6—which created cohesion among our fellow tourists and a great spirit of inquiry and conversation. Very very highly recommended.

I’m so happy I booked this tour. This was my favorite experience in Lisbon and a great way to see art and see the city outside the main tourist area. Rui was so knowledgeable about the art and history of the city, you can tell he enjoys giving this tour. I was worried about it being 3 hours but it ended up being the perfect amount of time and mostly walking downhill. Highly recommend taking this tour!

Awesome guide! Speaks French very well. Is very nice and funny and above all he loves his city and makes us discover it very well! Great activity to do with kids. Thanks

Mario D was an excellent guide. He made sure we saw the most places in the time we had. Tailored the entire tour to our needs. Highly recommend.

I love this tour. It takes me to a path less traveled.
