|Miguel was an excellent tour guide! The schedule was just right for the family which included a two-year old. We had enough time to visit and pray, a little shopping and photo opportunities.||We highly recommend this tour. It really exceeded our expectations. We were lucky to have Teresa as our guide – a very nice, friendly, enthusiastic person who really loves her job and those places…||We have just returned from Lisbon and this was a highlight! The whole day was really good, did think 8 hours was going to be a long day but it flew by. Saw so much that we would not have seen without the tour…|
