Very good tour, 100% recommended. Once the purchase of the tour had been confirmed, I was informed that it would be in English (I do not speak English) and I thought it would be a failure, but the places and the guide Tania, made this take a back seat. Very good guide.

This was one of my best trips ever. The guide, Andre Feldman, is excellent in explaining the history and culture of these cities. I would definitely recommend this trip when visiting Lisbon.

Very nice tour well organized with a friendly and knowledgeable guide. I'd suggest more time at Obidos, maybe a half hour more to do the complete city walls walk.

Liliana was a great tour guide! We loved all of the sights and the great information! She picked the perfect spot for lunch! Highly recommend!!
