Meet & Greet Service
On stays of 7 nights or longer, one of the houseboys will meet you at the airport and bring you to the apartment, free of charge! Just send your flight details and one of them will be there with a little sign to meet you! For shorter stays, this service is available for a nominal charge of 20 euros.
If you decide to make your own way to the apartment, we suggest that you take the taxis from the DEPARTURES area (NOT arrivals!) since 1) these taxi drivers won't try to cheat you and 2) there isn't a long line to wait in! The ride should cost about 8 euros, including the charge for your luggage. There is also a regular shuttle bus service for €3.50 (which includes an all day bus/metro pass) that drops you off in Saldanha, two blocks from the apartment. The Aerobus service runs every 20 minutes from 07:45 to 20:15 between the airport and all the main hotels and tourist centers.
Mobile Phone Rental
To make our guests feel at home in Portugal, we've come up with an innovative mobile phone rental program that can save you a substantial amount on GSM roaming charges. For €1.50 per day plus call charges, we'll lend you a new mobile phone with your own private number. If your mobile phone is not blocked to your home network, we can loan you just a SIM card for €0.75 per day plus call charges. If you'd like us to arrange this for you, We'll reserve your phone and/or SIM card and send you your temporary Portuguese telephone number by email.
Private City Tours
We have two options for you to enjoy tours around Lisbon.
The most popular one is with one of our cute, gay houseboys... or with any one of our other good-looking, sociable gay friends who are intelligent and speak English. Who's available usually depends on the day of the week and the time of day. With this scenario, you pay your tour guide 10 euros an hour plus any expenses (such as cab rides, entrance fees, lunch, etc). The minimum tour is 4 hours, usually starting no earlier than 10:00 (as they all like to sleep in the morning!)
Basically, you're paying for a nice gay guy to show you around, give you tips on where to go and tell you about some of Lisbon's interesting history.
The other, more traditional, option is a chauffeured black Mercedes (with a professional, gay-friendly driver who speaks fluent English and is licensed by the government as a tour guide) that costs around 40 euros per hour, regardless of the number of passengers (up to 4). These chauffeurs are independent and their rates can be negotiated, especially if you hire them for at least 6 hours or longer. They can arrange any type of tour you'd like, including the best sites to visit within an hour or two of Lisbon.
