The tour was very interesting and the best way to start discovering Lisbon, exactly from its very ancient heart. It was all done at a very relaxed pace and offered few magnificent views as well. Estela was a wonderful guide! She offered us plenty of interesting historical facts in very good and easy to understand English. She also answered very willingly all our questions, also regarding good places where we could go and enjoy a traditional Fado show. Thank you Context and thank you again Estela for this unforgettable experience! We will for sure come back and tour again with you. Katerina
If I could give Tiago 60 points, we would!! Not only did he know the information required, he answered all our questions and then pointed out details that were quite enlightening. From his education as an architect, he pointed out details that we would have missed, from doorway structures, to facades, to special curtains and unbelievably, doorknobs. It was clear that he was passionate about archeology, customs, and values, and how these things played out in city structures. And then extrapolated that to the social interactions, economic strata of each neighborhood. BEST TOUR GUIDE EVER!!! Thanks, Tiago---- Dan & Suann Shumaker
