90 minutes of fun
On my recent visit to Lisbon with our football team (16 adults), I organized a Sitgo tour of Alfama's old town. 11 of us presented for this excursion on a lovely Sunday morning in late March. I had booked on line and the Sitgo guys were very comfortable as I could not give exact numbers. We were given a 10 minute training slot and by 1130 we were accompanied by our guide Pepe and our cameraman Goncalo. It was the best fun trip I had experienced for some time while we wondered about the old town. Pepe was excellent with all his knowledge of Lisbon and we had time for a quick Chocolate and Liquor stop on our way. The fun was great and we even sang some song verses as we enjoyed our sitways. Basically just to explain a bit about the sitway these are a form of Sedgeways but here you are in a sitting position. They are easy to get used too and you will be up and running in no time. The highest speed is about 16 miles per hour and the hills of the old town were easily negotiated as we made our way to the gates of the street. George's castle. Finally, I don't think this would work without the excellent input from our Sitgo, Pepe and Gonçalo guides, who kept the whole 90 minutes relaxed and enjoyable and for € 25 of money well spent.

Far from walking! Wheels are here to stay .. a truly multi-sensory experience!
We are a family of 4 and booked with SitGo weeks before arriving in Portugal; a decision we are so happy to have made. Ieda & John are wonderful guides; They kept us in their sights at all times of safety and connecting us every step of the way! Although the meeting was postponed to an unexpected road closure and they had to drive their van to us on a different route, we were able to keep each other posted via Wi-Fi, so you'd better have it on your phone. We had a lot of family and group fun with the guides. They are very knowledgeable with their history of places we stop at. Our only regret is that we no longer had time to walk in the Alfama / Fado district, especially the church. This is not the guides fault, but my just as instead of checking the interior of the church, I would have preferred to check out a pottery shop that we passed before arriving at the church :). . . We totally recommend this tour to everyone so it is very valuable for your time and money. We do not feel discomfort or pain throughout the next day either. . . a truly wonderful way to see parts of Lisbon and we want to repeat another SitGo experience in another city for sure! ! ! You go guys, you have a good product there! !

Best Horseback and General Tour without a doubt
say a few. Equally important is the Paulo Guide and the Health of these horses. Before coming to Paul, I will just say that these horses were the healthiest horses from a visual and performative standpoint. That meant a lot to us because we are animal lovers.
Now Paulo! This man is genuine and considerate. He takes care of you all day and makes sure you have a super rewarding experience. The guy knows how to take care of people. He has a wealth of history and takes time to take you to a local market or two for some of the best-known road secrets. We both grabbed a pair of handmade shoes. Paul even pulled a few ropes and got us into a local food spot after the ride for some amazing fresh homestyle seafood. This was the best ride I've ever been anywhere, and Paul is the reason for that. Its crazy if you book with anyone else!

PS The beach you go to is like a private paradise. No joke

Five stars for sure!
The tour far exceeded my expectations. The tour guide was knowledgeable, lively and very passionate about food and the neighborhood. I loved the area and different places she showed us and the food we ate. Part of our group met up again the next evening for dinner at the Mozambican restaurant. I definitely recommend the tour!

Authentic Fado Experience

We booked the Campo de Ourique tour because we wanted something off the beaten track. We did not want to go to the usual tourist traps and learn about the things we could learn about in the guidebooks. We were not disappointed. Filipa took us to the market where we saw raw ingredients; we ate appetizers from octopus salad to game croquettes; we tasted wines; we had "the best chocolate cake in the world" (trademarked) and amazing custard pastries. The best thing about this tour was that it was done in a relaxed, unhurried, and personal manner--like old friends meeting to chat while walking around town. Filipa also gave us great information about other parts of town/restaurants/stores to visit that we followed. Here, too, we were not disappointed. We kept her map as a constant reference throughout our trip. This tour was a wonderful experience, and we were very thankful that Filipa helped us to experience Lisbon more like a native than a tourist. Do this tour first.

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!!!

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.

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.

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.

I went with my father on this tour. It was amazing! For anyone who is still doubting whether they should do this tour or not: do it!! This tour shows you all the cultural aspects of the hidden treasures in Lisbon. Some history, laughs, room for questions.. And especially the food. It was really good. Really good quality! The tour operators are such sweet people. I am a vegetarian, and immediately after I booked the tour I got a mail from Pedro. He asked me what I do eat and what I don't, so they could make a menu for me. In total we got 6 different stops. They were all very unique. I'm not going to tell all the secrets, for that you should go on the tour.
Thank you, Taste of Lisboa! It was a pleasure meeting you!

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!!!

This tour was a great way to see Lisbon away from the usual tourist traps. Filipa, the tour guide, was a great guide and gave us loads of information an was so much fun. The tour itself took us to lots of varied places. I got to try things i never would have thought of trying or known where to go to get them. The food tasted was outstanding and i definitely left feeling satisfied. Go hungry. If you do this tour, do it at the start of your trip as you will be tempted to go back to all the places again and you can get further tip for the rest of your stay in Lisbon. Do this tour, it's amazing.

This was a fabulous tour of the oldest part of Lisboa - Mouraria. I knew so little and Filipa provided me with just the right amount of history while inviting me to ask for more details whenever I wanted to know more! We walked at a casual pace and the selection of exceptional small restaurants and shops was perfect as was the food served in them! I was totally enlightened by the experience and will definitely try some of Filipa's other tours. I highly recommend this tour to anyone that wants to know more about Lisboa, its food, its culture and its history.

My husband and I spent a wonderful day in September with Manny as our guide on the Sintra tour. Manny was full of interesting stories about the area and everything we saw. This tour was definitely the highlight of our trip to Portugal, and an incredible value! The tour was easy to set up, and the communication as we were planning was very helpful. Manny was right on time and seemed to know the best times to go to all of the highlights on the tour so that we could avoid the crowds and have the best view. Thanks to Manny for a memorable trip!

We had some free time in Lisbon at the start of our Uniworld Duoro River cruise, so I found this food tour - Campo de Ourique Food & Cultural Tour. Filipa was our guide and it is her own business. She grew up in the Ourique area so is very knowledgeable. We enjoyed 6 varied food stops, starting and ending with a sweet which is fine by me. It was only a mile of flat walking. The indoor market is amazing & all stops unique. Who knew there was a restaurant serving just mussels & beer! I highly recommend this tour.

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!!

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.

Fun way to see some of the city
My teenage daughter and I took the Old Town Tour. Although we had already walked around, it was really informative and interesting to learn more about the history and buildings in the area.
The sitgos were a lot of fun. We were a little apprehensive at first but they were easy to get off the slope of, although my background was a little sunken af ​​the end!
A very fun hour and a half. I would definitely recommend - the reactions of other tourists as we passed also made us laugh!
