Very good tour, 100% recommended. Once the purchase of the tour had been confirmed, I was informed that it would be in English (I do not speak English) and I thought it would be a failure, but the places and the guide Tania, made this take a back seat. Very good guide.

Wonderful and informative tour - one of our highlights in Lusbon. I strongly recommend this experience.

Mr Paulo is to be congratulated, excellent guide and good person

Great tour, friendly and and knowledge guide, small group.
