What people are saying about Bairro Alto

Great value for money way to experience Lisbon, boat busses and tram were all good trips, santa justa lift i cant see what all the fuss is about. Headphones not the best but take your own, and if i have one criticism its that the bus commentary doesn't exactly tally up with where you are! and the music between commentary is definitely not the best

Great way of seeing the city and deciding which areas you want to go back to. The vintage tram is a must and takes you to the best of the historic streets. Being able to use these multiple times makes it great value

I went by myself and it was a really good experience. I meet people from all around the world and the tour was safe and the club at the end was amazing. My two guides were two girls and both of them were amazing !!
