Magnificent attention from the first contact. I knew the company through its website, where I found detailed and real information about the different tours with their prices. Request availability of the tour that interested us by mail and Hugo answered quickly. All hiring is done via email without the slightest problem. As it is with Joaquim, we started the tour at 10:00 in the morning at the door of our tourist accommodation in Lisbon, where Joaquim picked us up, in a Mercedes minivan in perfect condition. Joaquim has seemed much more than a guide, since he is a person with a high cultural and intellectual level and of course a great connoisseur of Lisbon. At all times he has treated us beautifully, with great kindness and professionalism. We made the tour with our two children. A highly recommended experience, if you want to know Lisbon in detail in a short time. Thanks Joaquim

Thank you for a spectacular visit to Portugal and Spain by Walkborder tours advised us how to improve the routes we had planned. We were very happy with our guide Paulo who told us the story in an entertaining way for everyone. The trucks are excellent and we could go stopping more time in the places that interested us.
