All Welcome vehicles are equipped with Wi-Fi, water and light snacks, to ensure you stay hydrated and comfortable during the tour.

Upon your request, it is possible to have a lunch or dinner at the local restaurant, recommended by the Welcome Driver.

Your day will begin with a personal pickup by your English-speaking driver from your hotel or apartment in Lisbon.

Frequently asked questionsExpand
What happens after I book?
Once you complete your booking you will receive an email with more details about the tour, your Welcome driver, and any more information you need to know regarding this experience. Feel free to reach out to our customer service team at firstname.lastname@example.org for any specific questions regarding the experience.
Can I customize the tour based on my needs?
Of course, that is one of the main benefits of having a Welcome experience. You can customize every last bit of the experience, from points of the visit to time spent per landmark to adding in an extra food stop.
Will there be an official tour guide?
An official tour guide is not included because the overall experience is centered around the driver and the local’s perspective. Although the drivers are very knowledgeable regarding the points of visit, at no point can they be compared with a licensed tour guide who can give more in-depth information regarding historical facts and information. If you would like to include an official tour guide in the experience please let us know via email after the booking is completed.
In the summer months, the sun is especially strong (even on cloudy days) so we recommend that you wear a hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen to protect yourself. Also, be sure to drink enough water throughout the day to stay hydrated.
Bring your Camera
Photography is permitted in most sites unless otherwise mentioned.
Accessibility & Special Needs
Should anyone in your group have special needs or have advanced accessibility requirements, please specify upon booking and we will make sure to accommodate your needs and customize your tour accordingly.
We recommend you always keep local currency on you (Lebanese Pound) as many local merchants do not accept cards as payment.
