It was a really great tour to get the lay of the land and a good overall knowledge of the area. Juan was very friendly and conversational. We saw the important sights and had a good time learning Tejo. We had our three kids with us (14, 11, and 8) and they had a good time too. It is mostly walking and very little sitting though if that's not for you. I would recommend this tour. Thanks Juan!

Excelente tour! Andrea fez uma incrível abertura com um resumo da história da cidade que me deixou fascinado. Eloquente, empolgada e competente, ela conduz o tour de forma que o tempo passa voando. Recomendo e se tiver oportunidade farei novamente esse tour.

Our tour guide was Andrea—she was lively and full of energy. We loved her. Also, as a side note, if you don't want to commit to a date and time for this tour, it meets every day as a free (donations encouraged) walking tour at the Cranky Croc at 10:30 a.m. and 3 p.m.
