About Us


Ricardo Santos

Fun Organizer

Born and raised in Lisbon, I’ve had a lifelong passion for travelling and visiting places all over the world. However, spending so much time abroad as a tourist myself has also made me more curious about my own country. Since I returned to live in Lisbon back in 2015, my goal has been to explore Portugal and introduce others to my home country as well.

Cultural Explorer

All my life has revolved around Lisbon: I’ve lived, studied and worked in Lisbon. However, it was only when I started doing tours that I’ve actually gotten to know Lisbon. To appreciate the viewpoints, the hidden monuments, the ginja, the traditional “pastéis de nata”, the cities that surround it. And that’s what I can offer in these tours: to show the beauty that Lisbon has to offer.
