Very well organized tour and the perfect length. Agnes was so friendly and helpful in giving tips, taking photos - even with stuff outside of our itinerary. She kept us updated day of on when she would pick us up. We got home about 3pm- it was just the right amount. So happy I chose to do half day vs full day- I was already exhausted and saw so much. While there was no official lunch stop we got 30 min to explore ourselves and could pick up snacks/ delicious pastries. I really appreciated that. Would for sure recommend this tour to others and my own friends/ family

Loved this half day tour with Agnes and Paulo! My husband and I only had a few days in Portugal and were able to see so much in a short time on this tour. Agnes and Paulo communicated well in advance of the tour and were on time and very helpful and engaging. They shared so much about the areas we visited on this tour and also offered lots of great advice for our stay in Lisbon. Thanks for a lovely day!
