We have used Joao Dickmann for 2 separate trips to Lisbon. Joao always makes sure we have the best experience and we do. Paulo was our guide and we fell in love with him and Lisbon. We took friends with us last trip and toured all over Spain and Portugal. Lisbon was by far our

This was our second time to book in three years and we were NOT disappointed. We requested Paulo as our tour guide because we had him 3 years ago. We had friends with us and we knew he would give us an excellent tour. The great thing is you get a private tour and can make

Hello again Judy, Thank you very much for your review of our "second date" ;-) Hope to see you for our 3rd in the near future! We are happy that you enjoyed our Fado restaurant suggestion, as it is always very "tricky" to make these type of suggestions (it can be your licking or not at all). Loved to have you back! Warmest Regards and all the best for you and your friends, Joao Dickmann

I am sure that this is the correct company that I am writing this review for. The tour guide we had is featured in the photos. We arrived in Lisbon, Portugal after 15 days in another country in which we had 6 different official guides, all in various cities, all arranged for us

Our team has received your review with great sadness. We worked for 4 years with only 5 and 4 stars in all the review platforms. This is the first negative review that we have, after hundreds of reviews and happy customers from all over the world. Paulo has several of those amazing reviews, so it is naturally a big surprise. But there is a first for everything… :-) ! Personally, I think negative reviews show you the way to improve, and gives you a “wake-up call” when you get to comfortable... We will continue working to keep our standards as high as possible. The biggest challenge for a company that offers only private tours, is to adjust to what different travellers are looking for. If you didn’t like the tour, it means that we were not able to do that and we have to be better. I would like to clarify a few things that seams, Paulo was not able to explain clearly, and because of it, some misunderstandings happened. By law, all our guides are legal guides, as they are not able to guide if they were not. They always have their full documentation whit them in case it is needed to present to the proper authorities. We always do, as you mention, maximise our travellers time as best as possible, as this is, what travellers have less of. As an example, when you mention that Paulo said that the Saint Jorge Castle has “just a bunch of walls” and that you could get a view from the outside and save time and money, that is true. We do that in several sites (Belem Tower, Geronimos Moanstery, etc.) not just in Lisbon. But them we suggest the Ajuda Palace, Mafra Palace, Queluz Palace & Gardens , all not the touristy places, that you would not go to (and by the way, are amazing… ;-) ). When we say certain comments, we don´t mean that we should not go into the sites. We say this, to advise what sites are best done in specific times and seasons. Also to give real expectations. If you read our other reviews, you can see that we adapt the tours to each traveller. So we express our opinion and knowledge and don´t go everywhere, because it´s written in a tourism guide. Our guides know all the non-written places, and that is what makes us different from the rest. Not traditional guides. So when Paulo said that you could later, on the day see it by yourselves, it´s because you could go to other places that you would not find. But as the time whit us, and for holidays is sadly limited, we are not able to do all. We are sorry that Paulo was not able to explain it to you in a clearer way what he meant. Sadly you are right in another matter; we are not able to have a “fast-pass” in all monuments, because the monuments don´t have that facility. This is one thing that Lisbon´s sites, still have to adjust, in order to be compliant with other traditional tourist cities. But all is a learning curve… Regarding the vans, the back windows in no van slide down. Cars do vans do not. We are not able to change that. When we open the sliding door, it is for you to take pictures in the best possible way (no glass reflection), but safely. We don´t drive while the door is open… :-) “Checking to see if our travellers are enjoying themselves”, yes, we do that. Always, and constantly. This makes us able to understand the interests of our travellers, the care they need (if they are tired, want a coffee-break, etc.), or if they want to change something “on the go”. We did not expect this to be perceived as bad thing. Again, sorry if it was not explained properly by our guide. Regarding the last day, we had one of our guides to take you to the places as agreed upon. The printout, was just so you could identify each other. Nothing more than that. Thank you for your review, and we will be more careful with our future travellers. We will explain better, what we mean, when we say and do certain things that might seem “non-standard” for a "normal" tour guide. Sorry for this long answer… :-) Warmest Regards, and hope to see you again soon, so we can show you other places and experiences in our small (but big) Portugal, João Dickmann
