Our Guide Romuald assisted by Fernando was excellent. Very cultured and able to answer all our questions about History with a capital H and the little history of Lisbon. Regarding the street art of Lisbon, 3 hours are a minimum to discover some very impressive mural works. We were 10 people in 2 tuktuks. It is ideal for this kind of visit. We highly recommend this activity (visit conducted in French)

Rui was engaging, motivated and speaks very understandable English! Although we were tired and therefore semi-concentrated, we were on the road for a good three hours and saw corners where we would not otherwise have been able to see.

What an experience! Ruiz has everything a good guide needs: passion, knowledge and friendliness. Comprehensive, varied and immensely expanding. Thanks. Any time.
