Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We have an amazing experience in Lisbon with Elisabete. She was the best tourist guide. She pick up us in the airport on time and drop off in the airport also. She have a comfortable van for the hole family. She take us all around the city and take pictures. We had a great time. 100% recommendable. Thank you!

What an amazing experience! We loved this tour! We have enjoy every second of this tour, and the best part was: Le grand Finale. A breakfast in Pasteis du Belem. Was perfect for our last day of vacation.
Special thanks to Alex, our guide in Lisbon. you are grandiose! We appreciate you time of this Sunday to show us the history and wonders of Lisbon. Thank you very much. I hope to repeat this experience in the near future!

My son (17 years old), niece (16 years old), and I recently had a 24 hour layover in Lisbon before catching our flight back to the US. As I had heard so many beautiful things about Lisbon and its neighbor, Sintra, I was determined to find a way to see both in the short time I had. After quite a bit of research on the internet and TripAdvisor, I found great reviews for “Top Ten Tours”. I also saw that they were able to accommodate a full day (8 hour tour) to both Sintra and Lisbon with pick up at airport and drop off at our hotel. I immediately reached out to them via email and Maria responded right away. She was very helpful and provided me with possibilities and made suggestions based on the time of year and ages of the participants. As agreed, Alex picked us up at the Lisbon airport upon arrival (9:30 am.) in an air-conditioned Mercedes van. (This was great because we happened to be in Lisbon on one of the hottest days of the year!). Instead of showing us Lisbon first, he offered to take us first to Sintra so that we could beat some of the lines at Pena Palace (about a 30 minute Drive from Lisbon) and avoid the worst of the heat in the midday. Alex walked up with us to the entrance of the Palace. We loved Pena Palace and highly recommend a visit. It is a cross between Neuschwanstein and Parc Guell (beautiful, fairytale-like buildings painted in lively colors in a lovely forest-like area with amazing views of the countryside and surrounding towns). Alex then drove us to downtown Sintra where we walked around and had some local pastries (Travesseiro) at a shop he recommended (Piriquita). He then drove us to Belem where my kids and visited the National Archaeology Museum (there is more to visit but this is what we chose to do to avoid some of the heat). After the museum, Alex guided us to another yummy pastry shop (Pasteis de Belem) known for its local delicacy, Pastel de Nata. Alex then drove us to the waterfront where he gave us a nice walking tour highlighting the different monuments celebrating the many Portuguese navigators. We then visited the Alfama Distric, the birthplace of Lisbon. Finally, after a few more stops along the way, Alex dropped us off directly in front of our hotel. We were all tired (especially because of the heat) but truly enjoyed our time on this tour. My “kids” had a great time with Alex-he was nice with them, funny, patient and interesting. I enjoyed the tour so much that I definitely would like to return to Lisbon, and Portugal, with more time so that I can learn more about this beautiful country. I can recommend Top Ten Tours and Alex without reservation.

Top Ten was extremely well organized during the correspondence phase and even asked me to confirm two days before our day trip! We spent the day in Sintra with Alex, who was a fantastic guide. Very organized, full of good information, friendly, helpful and perfect English. They are very flexible as to how you spend your time and exactly what you do.

We were fortunate indeed to have Alex of Top Ten Tours as our personal guide for a half-day tour on our cruise stop in Lisbon. There were four of us and we were met before the arranged time just outside the exit doors to the cruise port. Our trip up to Sintra was very comfortable in his Mercedes van and he took the time to provide us with much of Lisbon's early history and that of its kings and their retreats up in the hills of Sintra. Alex timed everything beautifully and gave us about half an hour to wander about the village and then took us up right to the entrance to the palace, even accompanying one of our party to purchase our group tix. No long wait in line!

After our tour through the palace we returned to the city and Alex again provided details about the monastery, the Belem Tower, and found a nearby parking space. His explanation of the map adjacent to the Founders' Monument was the best and most detailed I have ever experienced in three trips to the city!

Pre-arrangements with Maria of their office were detailed and worked wonderfully! Great stop in Lisbon. If you are looking to book a tour of the city or its surrounding areas, please give Top Ten Tours an opportunity to show you the highlights of this lovely city and environs!

My husband and I spent 4 days in Lisbon in early September, and we were lucky to have as our guide Alex of Top Ten Tours. Alex took us for a 1/2 day tour of Lisbon and Belem, and then a full day trip to Sintra and Cascais (and a bit of Belem that we had missed). He was a wonderful guide, with great stories and insights. His English was perfect and he helped us navigate our way around the city, recommending sights for us to see on our own as well as providing us with the history and backstories on those places he showed us. I would highly recommend Top Ten Tours - arranging our tour was easy due to Maria's professionalism and responsiveness. We don't always do private tours when traveling, but this one was among the best, and I would recommend using Top Ten Tours (and Alex in particular) to get the most out of Lisbon in a short period of time.

Quick and efficient communication with Maria on email to set up our tours. Excellent tour guides Alex and Elisabethe designed the Lisbon Layover and Sintra tours to customize these to our interests and our group’s age diversity.
Great use of time to be picked up at the airport specially since our NY flight came in early in the morning and too soon for hotel check in.

I cannot say enough good things about Top Ten Tours!

I had a 6 hours layover en route from Paris to Toronto and decided to look into options for exploring Lisbon. Since I was tight on time and had carry-on luggage with me, I decided to book a private tour and not try to navigate the city on my own.

This was a great choice!

Maria was amazing to communicate with via email; always quick to respond and patient in answering all my questions. She was great at understanding what I wanted and getting all my details, and was even quick to respond when I emailed her to let her know my flight was a little delayed. She gave me all the information on when and where to meet my guide and how to contact them if needed.

My guide was Alex. Alex was the highlight of my tour to Lisbon. He brought such an amazing viewpoint to a first-time visitor and made my experience very enjoyable. Asides from taking me to see the top sites (Torre de Belem, Santa Justa Elevator, Monastery of St. Jerome and more), he was a wonderful companion. We talked about Lisbon, travelling, humanity, our families and so much more. He even knew how to navigate Pasteis de Belem to avoid all the lineups and I experienced the tarts that Portugal is known for (and even took some home with me for my kids). Alex managed to plan our tour so well that it felt like I got the chance to see all of Lisbon and learn a lot about it - he is such a great speaker and it was very fun and informative to listen to what he was sharing about Lisbon.

I hope I come back to visit this beautiful country some time in the future, and if I do, I know for a fact I'll be contacting Top Ten Tours and asking for Alex!

We just completed a memorable and inspiring day trip to Fatima and other locales. It has been the highlight of our entire trip to Portugal. We are two couples from USA staying in Lisbon.

**DO NOT ATTEMPT TO RENT A CAR IN LISBON - HIRE A TOUR GUIDE** There is no available parking, rental cars and gas are both very expensive, and others have previously reported bad experiences when returning their cars due to false damage accusations, etc.

We discovered Top Ten Tours online, including research found on Trip Advisor. Believe the reviews, this company is the best. Advance booking was recommended and easily completed using their website. A 5% deposit held the reservation - securely processed via PayPal. Our itinerary was Fatima, Nazaree, Obidos. Our driver was Alex: intelligent, articulate, and very friendly. He loves Portugal and enjoys sharing his pride in his country. He arrived early in a beautiful, clean, late-model Mercedes minivan. The powerful air conditioning really helped on this hot and sunny day.

Our original itinerary involved other stops but one couple was still jet lagged. Alex was extremely flexible and restructured the route to reduce the need for stops and long walks. He knows all of the secrets to each venue - stuff they usually never tell tourists. Sometimes he accompanied us, other times he gave us free reign to explore. While in transit he educated us about local history, customs, and culture. It was never dull.

Most memorable was the beautiful lunch at a beachfront seaside restaurant in Nazare. Alex got the manager to give us the best table in the house. We couldn't have asked for more!

In case you're still reading this, the tour was safe, highly efficient, zero stress, and extremely cost effective. It was worth every Euro.

We are grateful to Alex and Top Ten Tours for giving us a day we will remember forever. Viva Portugal!
