Lisbon's Favorites & Hidden Gems Tour
Isabel is a trooper! We stayed in Lisbon during a record-breaking heat wave and she still agreed to show us around the city we found so overwhelming at first. After three hours with her we had such a great admiration of the city, the people, the history and some great funny stories to take back to Canada with us. Isabel is so passionate about her city and it comes through in her work. She treated us to a traditional cherry liquor and pastries and due to the heat we took a quick stop to enjoy a cold beer as well. She taught us all about the rich history of Fado in the city, suggested a couple restaurants that ended up being our best meals, and took us to some incredible viewpoints. In addition, she took us to some spots we would have never ventured to on our own and they were so very worth going off the beaten track. We had such a great grasp of the city after our time with her, we couldn’t have asked for a better guide. Thank you Isabel for braving the heat and taking us trough the crazy history that Lisbon has and showing us the beauty that now resides. I highly recommend this tour with Isabel, especially if you want to hear all about the history and beauty of the city and how it came to be today.
