Nice way to see Alfama
Andriy was a great guide of Alfama. We signed up for a group tour but ended up getting a private tour. He was knowledgeable and able to talk about Portugal, far beyond Alfama.

Memorable experience

The smalll group walking tour of Alfama was everything we had hoped for. Our guide, Andriy, was easy to get along with and very knowledgeable about the rich history, customs and cultures that make up Alfama special. The tour had more the feeling of old friends getting reacquainted then a guide and his clients. Thank you Andriy for making our trip to Lisbon memorable.

Highly recommended
Nov 2019
We had our walking tour of Alfama with Rui in the afternoon of the 08th of November, we also had an arranged transfer through the same company from our hotel. Rui was very informative and his knowledge of Lisbon as a whole was very impressive. Rui lets the group move and ask questions at its own pace, there is no pressure which is why the afternoon was the highlight of our short trip to Lisbon for my family. We took our 18 month old daughter with us and Rui was very helpful with the route and surroundings regarding safety for her. I would definitely recommend and would use this company again on my next visit. Thank you.

Intellectually stimulating tours with a custom touch.

I so enjoyed my Alfama tour with Rui. I was the only client on the tour as the others who had signed up, cancelled. As a solo traveling woman, I appreciate these tours that give me a good orientation to the city I’m traveling in. The morning with Rui felt like being shown around by a good friend. He customized my tour to show me parts of the Lisbon I had not yet explored. The highlight was seeing much of Lisbon’s street art and learning about the artists and their subject matter. Rui provided an extensive history in addition to sharing conversation and opinion that I much appreciated. I so enjoyed the walk and talk! I highly recommend My Lisbon Tours for anyone looking to deepen their perspective of Lisbon.

Wonderful tours
May 2019 • Family
We did the Alfama walking tour with Rui, and we enjoyed it so much that we asked him to take us to visit Sintra and Cascais. This was even better than expected! Need I say more?

Rui has an extensive knowledge of many subjects and he is able to share it with his visitors in an interesting, accessible and engaging way. We covered so many topics and learnt so much from him.

Rui also made us feel very welcome and was ever attentive to our comfort and interests.

Wonderful tours with a brilliant guide!

Excellent way to start a holiday
Apr 2019 • Friends
A brilliant way to get your bearings and start your adventure in Lisbon.
We had Cheila as our guide and she was fabulous - I'd recommend her highly.
Her knowledge was very good and she adapted the tour and info to suit us and she has a smiley and happy character.
The time flew by and we had plenty of laughs along the way - and of course she was happy to take photos so we were all in them, and point out good spots from which to take them too.
Well worth the money - wish we'd had time to do another one!

Fabulous Memories and More
Jun 2018 • Couples
Our experience with Rui Fernandes and Ilundi at My Lisbon Tours was excellent. We arrived Sunday morning with a driver scheduled by Rui. We had a half day orientation with Llundi for the Baixa tour. Our first introduction to Lisbon was wonderful. Llundi provide so much information about the country and rich history, I am sure we exhausted her with our questions. She was so kind and professional. The next day we spent Rui as we scheduled a full day tour through Sintra and Cascais. Rui advised an 8 AM start as he pre-planned our entry to the Pena Palace with the open of the Palace. We were the first in line which we were very grateful for as we left by noon the buses and traffic into the Palace was amazing. So grateful for his advice on getting an early start. Rui had his private driver take us the the beach of Cascais where we had a wonderful lunch. We also went to the old city area where Rui continued to share with us the rich history of the area. Our last half day tour was the Alfama Walking tour where we walked through a lovely old city and had another lunch of Cuttle fish. Let me know if you have other questions. My only regret is I didn't add one more day for Rui to take us to Evora. Enjoy Lisbon Enjoy My Lisbon Tours

Excellent Alfama Walking Tour
May 2018 • Couples
We spent a very informative and interesting afternoon with Rui in the Alfama district of Lisbon last Sunday . Rui is extremely knowledgeable not only about the history of Lisbon and Portugal but also European and British history.
The tour helped us better understand the Moorish Alfama district, the geography of the city and we visited parts we definitely wouldn't have seen unless doing this tour.
Well worth while doing early in your visit to Lisbon.

Alfama Walking Tour with Rui
Apr 2018 • Friends
Highly recommend the walking tour with Rui, he was very knowledgeable about his city and history about the country, he allowed enough time for questions and made sure his tourist was comfortable the whole time, he frequently checked in and made sure we were doing okay.
He even walked us towards our final destination to home or where we wanted to go. He did not just leave us in the middle of no where. Definitely great and trustworthy tour guide who knew the ins and outs of the city.
