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.
« 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. »
« For every ground is a vibration », text by Gonçalo M. Tavares.
