    As seen on TripAdvisor: “Beautiful Lisbon” This was our first time in Lisbon. We really enjoyed this city, it’s fantastic history, culture and gastronomy. Joao made it an”adventurous” and interesting day. We saw a lot of Lisbon and made some interesting discoveries. We loved going to places where we didn’t see much tourists, and being able to taste different traditional sweets, which was the best part. We learned that Portugal is much more than just the “pastel de Nata”. We would recommend Joao and Taking U There to anyone that wants to visit Lisbon.

    As seen on TripAdvisor: “Historical Lisbon” We wanted to do a tour through Lisbon and we took a chance on Takinguthere, although it is not in the Tripadvisor´s top ranking. They convinced us with the quick and informative responses to our questions. To sum it up, it was a great day. Our guide, Joao, was very pleasant, always taking care of our needs and answering all our questions and curiosities. Also we learned a lot of curiosities that were not in our guide book. Take a chance on Takinguthere, you will not regret it.

    As seen on TripAdvisor: “Well spoken cultured local decides to open a sightseeing company…” Where do I start. Joao Dickmann speaks perfect english (and german and of course his native portuguese). He is a local who knows every corner of Portugal and has stories to tell. He knows his history. Bottom line: enrich your visit to Portugal at the very with a 1 hour tour. You will wish you did all his tours.
