Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and engaging. His background in history was particularly worthwhile. Our only complaint is that the tour felt a bit rushed and the 3 hour tour was done in 2 hours. There was so much more to see at the University and the city tour was quite limited.

This was an amazing tour. As a history teacher I learnt so much about the history of Portugal that I did not know. The university is absolutely stunning. I definitely recommend this tour.
