Are you in one of these situations ?

  1. A first approach to Lisbon. You want to make the most of it rather than having your nose in a Lonely planet travel guide.
  2. You didn’t have time to prepare your trip in advance. You’ve worked too hard and you’ve just arrived in Lisbon at the last minute, relaxed and thirsty for discovery.
  3. The dream of seeing an hidden Lisbon. Open your mind, meet locals, Lisbon enthusiasts, gourmets, enjoy sublime sightseeings…
  4. The leap into the unknown. You don’t speak Portuguese, you feel lost in front of this city that seems gigantic. Quite simply, you don’t dare to explore outside the classic tourist itinerary.
  5. A family trip to Lisbon. You arrive with your teens and you don’t know how to entertain them. We have the solution to get them out of Snapchat for a day !
  6. A trip with friends. You are a bunch of friends and you want a memorable and entertaining private tour in Lisbon.

What are the benefits of a private tour with VisitmyLisbon ?

1-All our guides speak English.

They are always challenging themselves to provide a qualitative and exciting speech, tailored to any public. And so that we can get to know each other, discover the entire VisitmyLisbon team !

2- A perfect partner to a Lonely Planet travel guide.

Paper guide books such as Lonely Planet are not constantly updated, whereas we experience the evolution of a fast-moving city on a daily basis.

3-A private tour of Lisbon saves time and money.

If a private tour in Lisbon can represent a cost for your holiday budget, the tour guide’s advices will make you save a lot of money. E.g.: pros or cons of a Lisboa card, what are the good addresses, is the castle worth it, etc… During this private tour, the guide is at your disposal to answer all your questions for the rest of your stay. You can also prepare your trip by reading our great tips.

4- The guarantee of exploring a truly authentic Lisbon.

Let’s be honest, if you are being offered a so-called offbeat tour in the backstreets of Alfama, packed with hundreds of tourists… well, that’s not our idea of authenticity. We also offer you tours to other parts of Lisbon, away from mass tourism, which are just as beautiful and just as exciting.

5- We do not accept commissions with local businesses.

In this way, we are the opposite of many Lisbon tourist guide websites who present their good deals on the web…which mostly make them money ! All the restaurant tips we provide, the shops we visit together are places we appreciate and that we want to share with you. Why refuse commissions ? For us, it is a guarantee of freedom. If the quality in the restaurant gets worse, our hands are not tied.

Why visiting Lisbon on foot makes sense :

« You have to walk in Lisbon on foot. It’s obvious. …] If you go in motor vehicles, if you walk metres through the city without any physical effort, you will not understand the philosophy lesson that the city offers you. That is why it is essential to go on foot. The true believer goes on foot. The one who believes that he has learnt everything, on the contrary, goes by car and in this way he treats the city with contempt, because the city is the earth, the ground, the heights and the hollows, the stones that are out of place, the sounds and the smells, good and bad. If you go in a car [or a tuk-tuk] with the windows closed you are not in the city, you are in the car. And being in a car in Lisbon is the same as being in a car on the other side of the world. …] In a car, all that’s left of the city is cinema, it’s images. »
