    Une très belle journée de visite privée accompagnée d'une guide merveilleuse.. Belle occasion si vous êtes seule ou en couple pour bien profiter de cette journée et de son histoire avec des paysages magnifiques.

    I don't ever write reviews, but because of the amazing experience that I had with 'Alfacinhas Walking Tours,' I find it necessary to do so. Filipa, the owner, was my tour guide and she was so knowledgeable about the places that she took me to. Filipa captivated me with the history behind each building and monument that we stopped at. So, if you are looking for a tour guide/company in Lisbon , look no further - this is it! I HIGHLY recommend 'Alfacinhas Walking Tours.'

    Interesting tour. Most information about the Jeronimo site more informative on Youtube. This costly guided tour is not worth the price.You can easily plan it yourself in advance and save a lot by using a taxi to get there and visit the sites on you own. Language barrier between us and the guide.

    This was an excellent tour which was even better than we anticipated as I thought we would just be part of a larger group whereas it turned out to be a private tour with our excellent guide, Ricardo. Ricardo was very knowledgeable and totally unflappable when having to adapt our travel arrangements when the tram failed to turn up. We had a terrific tour of the key sites of Belem including the Church of Jerónimos, the Padrão dos Descobrimentos monument, the Belem tower and, of course, the Pasteis de Belem bakery.

    Our guide was not quite accurate on the dates and information. This we discovered on a later tour when we happened to visit the same sites on our water front cycle ride on 28th. Our guide, for instance, told us that Azores is near Boston!!

    Otherwise a pleasant lady.
