How many of us have been on a foreign city and by the time we leave we have the feeling that we’re leaving without seeing the real sites, the real culture, the real city?With Lisbon Off The Record you’ll see what we see, eat where we eat, hang out where we hang out, and most importantly, you’ll feel the city as a local.Lisbon has many faces, you can get to know them all.

We had a great day with Pedro showing us round the Alentejo on a private tour. He helped us put together the tour according to our interests and so that we could do it in our own time. I can only recommend the Tour.
