    They do a lot of pick-ups from many meeting points-this takes almost 2 hours, then 2,5 hours on the road , 1 stop at a gas station of 0.5 h, a stop în lisbon of 1 hour at jeronimos cathedral, then the bus leaves you in the center for 3 hours. If you have to eat something, you will loose an hour with that. Everything is on the run. We were a family of 3, and the guide forced me to sit 5 seats away from my husband and child, because she allowed only "couples" to sit together, even if my husband and child did not knew any foreign language, and i was not there to translate something to them.🙄

    I used this trip as a way of getting from Portimao to Lisbon. For the second time with follow me tours i was waiting where the confirmation email stated but the bus actually stops slightly further away. Ana was the guide and she is one of the best day tour guides I've ever had. Really enthusiastic and clear instructions given all day.

    I found this trip to be good value for transportation to/from Lisbon in a comfortable setting, but not very good in terms of the guided tour. Most of the time in Lisbon was free time. The tour guide party was mostly from the bus as we sped by from the arrival point to the final drop off point and only lasted about 30 minutes. Also, the tour guide was pointing out the sites in two languages and jumping between the languages each sentence. While that is impressive, it meant that we missed understanding lots of things because we were driving at regular speed in a closed bus, so you would hear about something you had passed 30 seconds before. The whole guided tour part really felt like you were saying what? wait what was that building? the whole time. The tours should really endeavor to provide one language per group rather than trying to cram in as many people on a multi-language bus as possible. I would recommend this tour for a family wanting convenient inexpensive transfer to/from Lisbon. Read up and prepare yourself ahead of time for the things you want to see.

    Excellent trip. The bus was very comfortable and the ride smooth. The tour guide was extremely nice and knowledgeable. She took excellent care of all on board the trip, provided plenty of information about everything on the way and about Lisbon. It was a very enjoyable experience for me and my family. This tour is highly recommended.

    It was a lovely day and the tour guide was very knowledgable. Given that we only had two breaks in Lisbon, the first one around the Monastry for 1.5 hours and the second one for 3.5 hrs, I teamed up with another traveller and we rented a Tuck-Tuck. We have probably seen more than most of our fellow passengers and it was a lovely and fun experience, except from the fact that I could not have climbed up all the mountaineous streets in Lisbon and see all what I wanted to in 3.5 hrs. Our tour guide took us two other vista points in Lisbon Alfama being one than the Sao George Castle, where you pay entry fees and where a restaurant is. So we left that for another time. We have seen roman ruins, walked through Alfama and have been to churches. It was a fun and lovely afternoon.

    I very much enjoyed the day trip to Lisbon. It was well worth the trip.
    One cautionary note to everyone who would like to take this day trip is that the pick-up and drop-off from all the hotels takes THREE hours. Plus the drive back-and-forth to lisbon is six hours, and so you will only get three to four hours to see the city.

    The Trip was good for a day trip. As others have mentioned, it was quite a bit of driving most of the day was spent on the bus but for the price, you really can't beat it. There are a few hours in the day for you to wander around the city on your own, but it goes by fast, and Lisbon is definitely a city that needs more time to enjoy. The tour guide did a good job of giving information on the city as we drove through.
