It was a private tour for all practical reasons with me and my friend. Was easy to find the guide on a sunday. They had some choice of bikes and I picked one similar to the Uber Jump bike. The guide Pedro (?) was super nice guy, very knowledgeable and gave his personal opnions and inside scoop on things as well as the history. It is a nice ride to Belem and the bridge and the monastery. Less cultural than the alfama tour but he answered all my questions, was super friendly, hooked me up with Tapas, brought some spare raincoats incase it rained (how nice is that?) Overall, fantastic guide. The Belem tour includes the famous Pastel de Nata and is more of a relaxed ride along the water, a bit different from the Hill tours.

Xavier Martins was out guide and we thoroughly enjoyed both the ride and treat at the end. You will definitely enjoy the bike ride with him as he takes you through some of the most beautiful parts of Belem. If you love conversations as well as details about a particular place / monument, Xavier is your guy.

What a fantastic way to experience Lisbon and in particular the area around Belem. We learnt about the history, about the food and the people of Lisbon through the centuries. Can’t recommend it more highly!

Xzavior was excellent. Very very knowledgable and made us feel so comfortable as my wife is not really riding on the streets.

It was top, success assured, despite the light rain.
