What people are saying about Lisbon District

Can’t say enough good things about this tour! First, the timing: it was so nice to have an option that didn’t start super early, yet still had you home in time for dinner. As for the stops we made: great! Just a small bit of physical activity - trust me, if my short, chubby, old body can handle it, so can yours - with a VERY good payoff! The lookouts were sublime, even with a bit of fog, and it was wonderful to leave the driving to a most capable guide so I could enjoy the views :) the wineries we visited were a good combo of idyllic vineyard views and a tour of a well-established winery. André was an engaging, informative and patient guide who felt more like a friend at the end. Obrigada for a lovely afternoon!

Miguel was a fun & entertaining guide who knew the area well. We had a great time kayaking, cave exploring & snorkelling. There was also a nice restaurant on the beach to have lunch afterwards at a reasonable price. Highly recommend to others.

The tour was amazing, you really get the chance to see the most beautiful parts and highlights of the city. The guide was very kind and knowledgeable. This tour is a must if you ever visit Lisbon!
