This full day tour touched a lot of key points that you would like to see in the City of Lisbon. The tour guy was very professional and provided us a lot of good history at every key location. Highly recommended.

Lisbon is pretty and there is no better way to see it other than with a local. We were picked up on time by Mihaela who was great. She was funny and extremely knowledgeable. We enjoyed learning the history, site seeing and tasting amazing Pastel de nata!. Mihaela also gave us great tips of where to eat in the city and what to do. Highly recommended.

This was a great tour. Our guide, Patricia picked us up from our hotel and gave a preview of the day. We started with the Belem Tower and then walked over to the Monument to the Discoveries. From there we headed to taste the custard tart pastel de nata. From there we walked over to the Jeronimos Monastery. We did not go into the monastery but the adjacent church. If you want to visit the monastery, then that would be done to your own expense and at another time. We then took a tour of the viaduct and then head to the historic center where we had a walking tour and took in some more sights. We visited St George's Castle and afterward had a sample of Ginja - a cherry liqueur that is drank from little chocolate cup. And finally, more walking through the little streets and ended up in Rossio square.

We had a wonderful day and learned so much about Lisbons history. Our guide, Miguel, was excellent and very personable. Kudos to the very courteous driver, Tiago, who maneuvered through the city and small spaces without any problems. We had an enjoyable traditional Portuguese lunch along the way. We highly recommend this tour.

This is a great tour. We got a comprehensive overview of all of Lisbon. Guide was pleasant, knowledgeable, and adapted the tour to meet our interests.

This tour is definetly worth its money. You are driven around the city and if you have to walk, most of the walking is downhill which is nearly impossible in Lisbon. You get to visit Belem and taste a pastry there which is included, you visit the Watermuseum right before lunch which was very nice, the restaurant even provided a vegetarian dish which is not easily found in Portugal. Afterwards you go to one of the best view points in the city and can optional visit the castle on your own expanse. Then you take a stroll through the city to the Fado museum where the driver will pick you up again and lets you off at one of the drop off points as the end of the tour. Elisabeth was a very nice and knowledgable guide, Thiago a very good driver. I fully enjoyed the tour.

This day tour of Lisbon was absolutely PERFECT in every way!! Miguel of CoolTours Lisbon was both knowledgeable and passionate about the city's history, culture, and food too. He took us to a local place for lunch and we sampled the original pastry the country is known for. We highly recommend this company and guide whose English is excellent. Karen and Chuck N

This was a great overview for a first time visitor to Lisbon. Inez did an excellent job guiding us through the city in spite of the rain. I enjoyed being with a small group. There was no difficulty hearing the interesting information about beautiful Lisbon. A visit to Pateis de Belem for a delicious custard was a special treat. Lunch at a local restaurant by the reservoir was delicious. I highly recommend this small group city tour, especially for a first time visitor.

If you only have 1 full days in Lisbon, this is a good day tour for you, all the points listed in the tour were visited. We drove by famous streets, bridges of Lisbon, including Avenida La Libertad, stopped at Tower of Belem, Discovery Monument, mid morning snack of egg custard at famous bakery, visited St. Geronimo Cathedral. Brief stop for lunch at restaurant that serve mostly locals, delicious seafood. During afternoon visited water reservoir, walked through Alfama neighborhood, tour guide Daniel bough each of us a shot of Ginjinha, another cathedral, visited Castle St. George, which has beautiful view of city and ocean, and visited another Miradouros before dropping us at Rossio Square. It is a packed day, well planned and worth the money.

Great time and experience. Our guide was knowledgeable, flexible, and friendly. Our driver certainly knew all the best ways to navigate Lisbon traffic...safely. We could stay longer at sites we liked, and move on when we wanted. The guide was a veritable encyclopedia or Portuguese history and culture. She completed the very vigorous university training to be a certified tour guide. Strongly recommend a small group tour...

Due to a staffing issue, the owner of the company stepped in and took us on a wonderful day tour of Lisbon. We had one couple who only spoke Spanish and the owner spent equal time in translating in English and Spanish so all would be accommodated. We did not have to stand in line for tickets and spent an enjoyable side trip to taste the delicious pastry Lisbon is known for. I would highly recommend this tour and the tour company.
