It was a fantastic tour...

It was a fantastic tour and Rhian was an excellent guide!
The only suggestion I would add for a tour operator is to outfit your guides with some form of the loudspeaker. Even though our group was small, it was sometimes hard to hear.
Thank you!
Great way to visit the City

Very interesting way to know the city of Lisbon. I've been there on several tours with different guides and it was always a different experience. The guides are very professional and they have a lot of knowledge about the history and city. Also they can adapt the tour to your needs. I totally recommend doing one of their tours!
