Awesome Tour - Would 1000% Recommend
A really great study of street art in Lisbon. If you want to travel around Lisbon and take Instagram pictures in front of the biggest/most iconic street art in Lisbon, this isn't your tour. But if you want something that helps you understand the cultures of Lisbon's various neighborhoods and street art as an art form better, this is definitely the tour for you. The tour felt thoughtful and deliberate, with themes from the beginning growing and intertwining as the tour progressed. The diversity of styles and artists was great. So too was getting a sense of the various neighborhoods we visited.

This tour felt personal. We had a lot of back and forth conversation with our guide that you just wouldn't get on most other tours. It really made for a wonderful few hours and a nice close to our time in Lisbon.
Enjoyed this your
Wonderful personal tour. Great pace and all my questions answered.

Thanks very much.
