Had a really great day today. Tiago was a very dedicated, extremely knowledgable leader with fantastic English. Our trip took four hours, not three, as he was so keen not to be rushed.

There was lots to see and it has given us lots to go at during our remaining 2 days before we return to UK.

I would strongly recommend Tiago as an excellent person to lead a group. He has an excellent and very calm manner and was happy to answer every question we put to him on whatever topic, he answered within the context of Portuguese history. Great that he is a local. Bikes were great too, I never changed gear, as Tiago promised! Particularly commendable in a hilly city like Lisbon, surprisingly it was all downhill!

Many thanks for a most enjoyable and informative day.

Thank you for your review!

Cycling Lisbon arranged a bike for my use and planned and guided morning rides for me for my 5-day stay in Lisbon. The rides were challenging and in beautiful scenery and accommodated my desire to cycle early in the morning before the traffic and warmer temperatures. The scenery was fabulous and my guide, Goncarlo, took great care to plan routes that challenged my skill level and provided a great mix of cultural interests and natural beauty. I thoroughly enjoyed the rides and the experience. I was collected at our apartment for rides outside of Lisbon and felt extremely safe at all times and the bike provided to me was new and a pleasure to ride. I would highly recommend Cycling Lisbon for anyone wanting to enjoy Lisbon and surrounds by bicycle.

Dear Julie, I surely spent 5 great days (mornings should I say..) with you cycling in Lisbon, Sintra and Arrábida! It was fantastic to be able to ride much earlier than I normally do and no need to find an excuse for it ;)
All the best to yourself and your daughter and son.
Hope to ride again with you in a near future.

My wife and I did a tour of the Sintra hills and coast with Goncalo. It was such a wonderful experience! He seamlessly tailored the ride to our abilities and was incredibly knowledgeable about the surrounding area. He could tell us about the ecosystem as well as which restaurants to try or which beaches to go to. All in all it was an incredible day, and I can't imagine a better guide or riding partner.

Hello Alex, it was a very nice morning ride with you. The pleasure was mine, to know about your interest in Portuguese writers and poetry. Hope you will be able to make it to the restaurant we talked about. All the sucess with the library and restaurant business.
Best regards

Goncalo and Vitor took me and my brother on a adrenaline-fuelled adventure through the Arrábida mountains that will be hard to forget, and really catered for our request of full off road experience and plenty of tricky downhill dirt trails!!

The tour started on the local traditional market where Vitor gave us the Historical context of how the village evolved to be a very well known fishing town and more importantly we got some local goodies from local producers like cheese and fresh bread and fruits to take with us for an epic and well deserved picnic!!

Thank you for the amazing experience and for having brand new electric bikes that really helped going up those hills!!!!
Looking forward to hit Sintra’s trails next time I get back to Portugal with you guys!

Rodrigo, ficamos contentes que vocês tenham gostado do tour! De facto os singletracks da Arrábida estão em excelentes condições e têm um nivel de exigência técnica que os torna acessiveis à maioria de nós. 7
Nós é que agradecemos o facto de nos terem escolhido, e até breve em Sintra para mais uma dose ;)
Um abraço
Gonçalo
