This was such an amazing trip!

We really enjoyed the hotels in both Lisbon and Evora. The staff in each were friendly and accommodating.

Every tour guide was incredible. They were all willing to share about themselves and their culture, making each one truly special.

We had Gisella for the walking tour. We really connected with her, and she showed us a TON of Lisbon. She gave us tips and ideas for food and drink that we used during our free time. She was friendly, and easy to understand.

On Monday, we had Vitor for the day. He added a lot of personal details, and took us to some of his favorite spots near Setubal. He gave us a great intro to Evora as well. He was super friendly and accommodating.

Telma gave us a very informative walking tour through Évora. She really knew her stuff, and it was wonderful to learn about the area through her knowledge and experience.

Daniella on the Food Tour in Lisbon was captivating. She has such a way about her, and gave us so much more info and history about the area AND the food/drink. We wish we had more time with her. She made a small group tour seem super friendly, and encouraged connection between the other guests.

We really enjoyed getting to know Nuno on our Sintra/Cascais day trip. He was so much fun, and shared not only info about the amazing areas we were visiting, but about himself and his family. There was a great connection there as well. He was a lot of fun, and gave us great suggestions.

We spent our last night in the home of Sofia and Carlos in Lisbon. That was such a fantastic way to end this trip. They were warm, funny, and the food/drink was incredible as well. While it’s hard to pick a favorite thing for the week, getting to spend time with them in their home was something we will never forget.

Beatriz was very easy to work with through all of it, and super responsive. We always felt like we had our own, personal team working to make this trip a fantastic experience before and during the week. She planned such great things for us, we would absolutely use the service again.

Hotel Review
Dear Lisbon - Gallery House

Great location, amazing stuff, comfortable rooms, delicious breakfasts. We stayed at the hotel for 4 nights total, 2 blocks of 2 nights, 2 separate rooms. The rooms are comfortable and clean, maybe a bit beat up here and there (walls, corners), but that wasn’t an issue. About the only thing I’d want would be a bit more light in the bathrooms of both rooms. A makeup mirror/lamp would take care of that. The staff was friendly and helpful, making it easy for us to enjoy our time there. The breakfasts were delicious, and I’m missing them now that I’m at home. The location is great - you can walk a lot of places quite quickly, or you have a tram stop right by the hotel. We’d absolutely stay here again.
