I would highly recommend this experience! It really can be whatever you make of it; you can simply relax aboard Mario's lovely boat, you can ask questions about what you are seeing (Mario is very knowledgable about Lisbon, the history, etc.) or you can step up and play captain! My husband steered the ship, with Mario's guidance, and he had a blast while learning a lot about sailing from Mario!
Lisbon Sailing Experience with Mário
Sailing with Mário is great fun. We enjoyed every minute of the 2 hrs trip. You can assist on board in you want, so you can also get a bit sailing experience. Mário is such a nice and relaxed host, was a wonderful atmosphere on board.

Lisbon Street Art Walk
Igor is the very best - book this tour with him!
We spent four days in lovely Lisbon and amongst all of the beauty and fun, this was definitely the highlight. We met Igor in Bairro Alto (super easy to get to) and went on the coolest city art tour with Igor. Igor is very nice, cool, knows the city and has great knowledge and stories about the street art. The bonus was that we got to see a lot of cool places in Lisbon that we would never have gotten to see as tourists. So much fun and we got some really cool pics to show off. I'm not sure how many guides do this tour but if you can, go with Igor - trust me, he is a gem! Thanks so much Igor for everything.....we kept on thinking of you as we continued our travels in Europe and saw great street art..."Igor would love this!" came up often, especially in Barcelona. You're the best, good luck with everything!!! Alla & Wilfred
Lisbon Street Art Walk
...Really Fun Tour
Igor leads an excellent tour taking you to fascinating neighborhoods with important street art. It is important to know artistic expression in Lisbon, and it goes well with learning about the history of this city. We loved it!
Lisbon Street Art Walk
If you're into local street art and discovering hidden parts of the city, definitely take this tour! We had a lovely time with Igor on our first day in Lisbon! Igor is a chill and open individual who seemed thoroughly plugged into the Lisbon arts scene. We wanted an experience that was a little off the beaten path, and Igor definitely delivered with lots of interesting and hidden parts of the city that we would have never discovered on our own. Igor even spent extra time with us at the end of the tour to take us to a wonderful somewhat secret bar in a beautiful building that is more of a local hang out spot -- -- it's been one of our favorite places to eat so far. Thank you so much for a wonderful experience!!!

Outstanding customized tour from Lisbon to Sintra
Rui is an exceptional guide. He is knowledgeable, humble, reliable and so passionate about the area.He took us to the major attractions and on some back roads of Sintra telling us interesting facts and fascinating stories that made the facts come alive. On the way back to Lisbon he also went out of his way to point out other areas of interest and answer our questions about Portugal. It was such an authentic and unique tour. I recommend touring with West Vagabond Tours (Rui) in the highest terms possible.
Mystical & Romantic Sintra: Guided Day Tour from Lisbon
Highly recommended!!
Rui is a fantastic tour guide! Caring, knowledgeable, and well-rounded. I did two tours with him: a one-day surfing trip and Sintra-Cabo da Roca - Cascais. Both left me amazed! If you're looking for something cozy and tailored just for you, then West Vagabond Tours is exactly what you need!
Mystical & Romantic Sintra: Guided Day Tour from Lisbon
Local guide, local knowlege – passionate about local culture, food and history
We were lucky to have Joao take a couple of Australians to see Tapada and Mafra for a full day outing. We were picked up without fuss at out Lisbon apartment and we must say he drove very responsibly so we felt very much at ease! As well as the main attractions Joao had some quirky little places to drop by to add to the experience. We had a sumptuous "typical' lunch at a place we would never have tracked down ourselves. Our main aim was to see the Palace at Mafra (the name-sake of my hometown Maffra in Australia) which is a remarkable building, again with its own character and stories. Joao had been an excellent and attentive host with broad interests and knowledge and we will look forward to more adventures, meals and story sharing with him.

Local Knowledge & Passionate Guide
My husband and I wanted to do a short excursion outside of Lisbon, and we were very lucky that we had heard about Joao. We wanted to do a short trip to Obidos, and it was very easy to arrange with him. He was responsive, punctual and organised. In addition to Obidos, Joao recommended that we visit Peniche as well - we appreciated this recommendation, since the place was beautiful and not something that we would have otherwise known about (even though we partially live in Lisbon). If we had more time, we also would have liked to visit a vineyard that Joao recommended. His English is excellent, and he is overall very informative. We liked that he let us be "independent" and wander around Obidos, stop for food, sightseeing, etc - the tour was informative but not too rigid and formal.
Day Tour to Medieval Óbidos with Wine Tasting
What a wonderful time in magic Lisbon
We went to Lisbon on the 1st of december. We had been there several times and wanted to discovery a different city so we booked with city guru. I must Tell you it beat all our expectations. First of all we told them we had two pets traveling with us and they say no problem and recommend us the garden tour. We arrived to the meeting point at 10 to 10 and then We had another fantastic surprise, her name Marisa, a spanish girl, with her explanations we visited many interesting places. We really recommend it!!
Private Tour of Lisbon's Secret Gardens
Amazing tour!
My friends and I booked the "Random Lisbon Zen" tour in Lisbon with City Guru and had such a great time! It was our second time in Lisbon and we were searching for something different to do. They´re very friendly and professional guides, gave us a lot of useful information about the city, and learn so much about amazing places in Lisbon that we wouldn´t even imagine to discover on our own. Highly recommended!
