Great introduction to Lisbon
Aug 2021
First day in Lisbon, Beatriz showed us the highlights of the city, and gave us suggestions on what to do on our own. She is very knowledgeable and pleasant company. I highly recommend the tour in general, and Beatriz in particular.

Great tour, very informative and fun guide
Aug 2021
The tour was really good - our guide Beatriz was very knowledgeable. She shared a lot of interesting facts about the history and the architecture of the city. She also showed us some very helpful shortcuts and told us some fun facts. Her stories were engaging and she had vibrant and bubbly energy. It was a great experience and I would recommend it! :)

3 hr walking tour Lisbon
Aug 2021 • Friends
We recently took a small group walking tour of Lisbon with Joana, and what a pleasure it was! Joana is a native of Lisbon and so knowledgeable and funny!!! We got to try the pastel nata (conventual custard tart) and a little wine and cheese from a local spot and overall had a lovely time. We would recommend this tour to anyone to get a good overview of downtown Lisbon area, just make sure to wear good walking shoes for those cobblestone streets!

One of the best tours I’ve been on! Joanna was extremely knowledgeable and a fantastic story teller. We wandered the streets learned so much about the city, history, cool local tips, tried some local food and had an incredible time. We’ve booked two other tours through this company based on our experience. Joanna is an incredible guide. They also made accommodations for gluten free which was amazing!!
