I’m so glad that I got to do this tour with Lana - totally worth it! She knows her stuff, and goes through the history of the area so well. I felt like I was really getting to know the country and all it has been through, and spent an afternoon immersed in the culture, history and architecture. We covered so much of the city and through many paths I wouldn’t have found. I only hope I can remember all she packed into the tour!! Other than that, she is such a lovely person - and so thoughtful and caring.

I definitely recommend this tour! I was the only guest on the day so I had a great personal tour with Lana. She took my walking limitations into account (I have a bad foot) and made sure we had some rest stops while she told me the history of the city. It was a wonderful orientation to Lisbon for my first day and helped me understand more about what I was seeing as I explored on my own.
