Best Inside Look to Lisbon

Joanna provided an excellent tour of an insightful look of Lisbon. She was Informative, entertaining, and provided all the ins and out to this beautiful city. She also provided tips on how to navigate the city easily. She made the hours fly by. Wish she could be our guide the entire trip. She took extra time outside the three hours to really give us in-depth look into the history of beautiful Lisbon. Make sure to wear comfortable shoes and sunscreen on a pretty day. Excellent way to start your stay in Lisbon.

Our tour was with Caterina (Fonseca), and Catarina was pretty incredible. The best way to always enjoy a city is on feet, and with the right guide you receive the right information about all of the key points of interest. Caterina also shared interesting 'do and do not' about the city.

Catarina Fonseca was an amazing guide! I really enjoyed her walking tour of Lisbon, it was well worth it! We were very lucky that the weather was mild, perfect for a walking tour! She was very knowledgeable and personable and took us to some beautiful places. The restaurant we were supposed to visit at the end for a snack/wine was closed but Catarina worked quickly to find a local place in Alfama that ended up being so memorable! I would highly recommend (and already have to friends and family)

We walked at a leisurely pace and there was plenty of time to take photos. It was a great introduction to Lisbon with lots of suggestions on places to visit and where to eat which is so valuable from a local resident. Great job Inside tours.
