    We did this tour on our second day in Lisbon and it’s a great and fun way to see the city. Our drivers Luis and Joao turned up bang on time at our apartment in funky pink and purple restored VW’s and we set off on a tour of the city which lasted 4 hours. The drivers were very accommodating and stopped wherever we wanted whilst also telling us about the history and sites that are worth a visit. It was great fun and the cars certainly raised interest around town with people waving at us along the way. If you want something a bit different from the regular tours you should definitely do this. Thanks Luis and Joao for a fun afternoon!

    We absolutely loved our tour and our guide Luis. We did the full-day tour and we were picked up right outside our flat rental in Lisboa. We started in Sintra and then drove along the coast to Cascais and Belém. Luis made sure we understood where we were going and always asked if there was something else we preferred to see instead. We trusted his recommendations and we weren’t disappointed! We had a choice of places to have lunch, we opted for the traditional Portuguese style restaurant and it was delicious! We ended the tour with some porto wine and pasteis de Belém yum! in the park near the Torre de Belém. I would highly recommend this tour, especially if it’s your first time to Lisboa.

    The tour was great. It felt like we were led around the city by a friend. Sintra was beautiful and the drive along the coast was impressive. The day we went on our tour it was a little cold. Fortunately our driver packed a blanket it and it made the weather more tolerable. Overall a great tour.

    Great tour and the guide was awesome and even looked up lots of information we just casually asked Viator about. The weather was poor but he found other places to go and see and was full of knowledge. Wonderful experience.

    had a great time during my Private Tour in Lisbon and Sintra. Hugo was a very good company and very professional, he took me to wonderful places to see, we had lunch in a beautiful place by the sea and the weather was perfect. It is worth taking the car to get to see these amazing places since there is hardly any other possibility to reach them.

    The only way to see Lisbon! Even tho the weather was not so good, the driver did a great job of showing us around. Much better than a tour bus as you can spend your time in the places you choose. I only wish this option was available in more cities! Would do it again.
