Private Guided Tours

My offer of “Private Guided Tours in Lisbon” is aimed at people who want to get to know Lisbon with fully personalized support from the first contact to the completion of the tour.

Private Guided Tours Lisbon Walking Tours Tuk Tuk Tours
attention to details is key

All details, such as the time and duration of the tour, the pick-up location (for example your hotel in the center of Lisbon or the cruise ship terminal) can be fine tuned in order to provide you with the best possible experience.

These tours are strictly private, preferably, in small groups. Like others, include historical details and context but the difference are the small nuances, the details, the fun facts and the hidden gems.

Unlike tour 2, which allows greater immersion in Lisbon’s neighborhoods (because it is done on foot), tour 4 focuses more on Lisbon’s viewpoints, with stops in Santa Luzia, São Pedro de Alcântara and Senhora do Monte.

Tailor Made Tours

Do you prefer a tour “à la carte”?

As long as it involves private guided tours with boots and/or wheels, I’m sure I can provide!

The world behind “O Tuk do Joao”

I am a former engineer with a 9 to 5 office job. For about 30 years, when I occasionally had family and friends in town, I would take my private car and show them around the city, which helped me achieve a knowledge very solid about the neighborhoods and history of Lisbon. When I finally had the opportunity to retire, I thought about transforming those private moments with family and friends into a profitable activity.

Waiting for you

Then I drove tuk tuks with Tugatours during 5 years and loved every moment of it. The opinions received from customers were very motivating, representing enormous support and encouragement. I finally felt the need to add walking tours to my Lisbon Tours offer and I feel comfortable with both options.

FAQ

Maximum persons per tour?

Walking tours are limited to 6.

Tuk tuks’s capacity is 3, 4 or 6 passengers (different tuk tuk models),  

Are these tours environmentally friendly?

Yes, walking tours are by definition environmentally friendly and all tuk tuks in the Tugatours’ fleet are electric.

Are these tours private?

Yes. Private tours are not free but have the advantage of privacy. Unlike free tours, on private tours there is a great possibility of customization (start, end, route and stops locations).

Tolerance for late arrivals

The first 10 minutes are spent by the meeting point. After that is likely that the group has moved.

Is there a minimum age to do a tour?

There’s no minimum age to join the walking tours. The minimum age to ride a tuk tuk is 6 years old.

Disabilities?

Walking tours are dimensioned to walk 1.5 miles in 2 hours, in a relaxed pace. People with heart problems or spinal diseases should avoid tuk tuks, due to the vibration caused by the pavements in the city of Lisbon, particularly the historic area.

Cancellation policy?

Cancellation anytime. A cancellation note would be appreciated.

Want to make a review?

Leaving ratings and reviews is a valuable practice that goes beyond simply expressing personal opinions; it becomes a valuable guide for other users looking for reliable information.

Furthermore, I am always looking for constructive feedback, which helps me understand what my guests rate best and the aspects in which I can improve.

What to do in Lisbon?

Is Lisbon on your radar? Do you have plans to come to Lisbon but your availability does not allow you to research what to do or how to make the best use of your time?

With you in mind, a What do do section was created, about monuments, attractions, street art, museums, tradition, in short, about what you shouldn’t miss during the days you’re with us.

For those who have already had the opportunity to visit Lisbon, I hope that this section brings back good memories and the desire to return soon!

“Até já !!”
