Excellent Walkboader services have brought us fun and culture with exemplary efficiency.
I, my family, Mariana, Eduardo, and friends Neusa, Isabela and Julio, on 28.09.17, had an incredible day in Lisbon with the excellent services of the Walkborder Tour.
It was great fun, we learned a lot about the culture of this country. We were amazed by the knowledge and courtesy of the service. Let’s go back! Let’s use Walkborder services, for sure. See you later!
