The tour was very good. Carlos is very attentive and pleasant. He made a point of presenting us with all the good that was on the way and told us a lot about the history of Portugal. We will certainly combine other scripts. We highly recommend it!

“Walkborder Tours is excellent!”

The service provided by Walkborder Tours is really very good. In spite of already knowing the country, it was a pleasant surprise to walk with them! Me and my family did the 3 tours with them (Lisbon, Azitão, Sesimbra, Setubal and also the Sintra and Cascais and also transfer to and from the airport). The attention and promptness of Hugo, with whom I treated everything before the trip, the one of João, who walked with us and also Francisco, who made our transfer out. All competent and friendly. Service of excellent quality and professionalism! Whenever I return to Lisbon, be it leisure or work, I will look for them!
Big hug!
