Museums in Galle

  • The Historical Mansion Museum is a free museum full of vintage stuff of the old Galle. It is owned by the 80 year old Mr. Abdul who bought the house about 40 years ago. It was then restored. Therefore, it is also the oldest building of the Galle Dutch Fort!
  • The Maritime Archeology Museum is a beautiful museum full of high quality exhibits. There is a lot of information available, so this museum won’t get boring anytime soon. With only €4,50 entrance fee, it’s pretty cheap too!

Svetlana (can be called Lana) Nuno Miguel

Olá Lisbon! Family Friendly Intro Tour

Nuno Miguel was a very engaging and informative guide. His English is excellent and his academic background in Portuguese history added considerable depth to the knowledge he shared with us. On the other hand, he did not try to overwhelm us with this knowledge, but remained sensitive to our personal interests and needs, so he managed to be entertaining as well as informative. We would be happy to recommend him to anyone interested in a personal guided tour of Lisbon.

Beth Daniel

Wine & Tapas Tour: A Gourmet Journey

We enjoyed our time with Daniel in every way! He is so knowledgeable and personable. He was the perfect fit for our group of 2 adults in our 50’s and 2 in the 20’s. The places he took us had both excellent food and wine and we learned a great deal about Madrid. Thank you Daniel for helping to make our trip so great!
