Simply excellent. Our guide Walter was efficient, considerate and made us discover the essentials of the Portuguese capital. His conduct is exemplary and we learned a lot from him. Of course, this is not an in-depth and expert visit with a historian. But for a first it was perfect and Mr. Walter we will contact you again on our next stay Thank you very much from Roland Ludovic and Isabelle
