Lisbon Private Tour Excursion Reviews

Private tours of Lisbon are a great way to see the city at your own pace with an extra special personal touch.
One of the best tours we've experienced.
Sail Date: October 2018
One of the best tours we've experienced. We joined our guide just outside the terminal. He was a local, English speaking gentleman. It was a no rush tour. It is a combination bus and walking tour.

we docked at the newest facility: Jardim do Tabaco and is located in the northern part of the city, and it’s the closest to the city centre. Walking distance is 20 minutes. As Lisbon is a large town and built over different hills (stunning views) along the lovely embankment parks and monumental buildings, we opted to rent a little car. There are also e-bikes or tuktuk services available or the large double decker busses Hopon/off. As the city centre has many narrow streets, the large busses are not able to go there. So we choose the car service, this provided us a way to see more in the short amount of time and as GPS is part of the rental service, you will receive an education along your ride! I tried to contact 3 different companies and only one called Lisbon Eco Tours provided the best possible service and were extremely customer focused & professional. They offer to rent a Renault Twizy and it is a fun car and completely electric, runs up to 80 km p/hr and takes easily two adults up the hill. We had plenty of stops and alternated our tour where we needed to change it. As there is a lot of traffic, you just need to follow other traffic and it is actually not intimidating at all. Expect to become an attraction yourself as many people will take a photo. After the 4 hour tour with stops, we had lunch at a local restaurant (taken there by our request by the owners of the company) and ordered the typical local food & wine. I would do this any time again whenever I will return to Lisbon. Also Lisbon is spread out with lots of public space (parks & squares), we did not feel squeezed into the city, although the city attracted many visitors. Locals are really open, friendly and welcoming. Read Less

MIxup when last minute port terminal assignment made. Drivers went to wrong pier (one of three), half hour late, deduced E5. Excellent driver guide. Loved everything we saw in Sintra, good overview of Lisbon neighborhoods, very brief time in Cascais. Next time would like to see Belem Tower/Monument to the Discoveries and the rest of the day all Sintra. Fell in love with this country! Read Less

I really cannot adequately express what a remarkable time we had. We spent a couple weeks in Europe visiting lots of places and taking various tours but this was by far the best. Do not miss it! We had an amazing adventure with Ricardo on the "Pirates of the Cruise Ship" tour. I even hesitate to call it a tour, since it felt more like a long time friend showing you his city with terrific insights and knowledge of the history and culture. We saw Lisbon, Sintra and Cascais and more. It was all beautiful and we enjoyed select pastries on several of the stops (he knew exactly where to go for what). He tailored his tour to our interests and made everything such an enjoyable experience. I don't know how they can afford to do these tours at such a low price, so make sure you tip well (believe me you will want to after such a memorable day). Read Less
