Loved the Fado performance, have bought two CD's as we loved it so much. There was so much food for dinner as well, all home made and just great. The city sights at night was fantastic, great view of the city by night from one of its highest points was a highlight.
Our guide did a wonderful job and we got an extraordinary feel for the city and its people
We highly recommend this tour as a way to see the city (albeit a small piece). It was a good way to end the day.
Edgar was very knowledgeable and led us on a great evening! Dinner was delicious. Sightseeing before the dinner was very interesting and scenic. And the fado show was unique and beautiful. A great trip! Highly recommend!
Everything about this tour was most enjoyable, and the Fado experience a travel memory never to be forgotten. Had expected to be at a view sight in time for sunset over the city, but it was already dark by the time we reached it. Nevertheless very glad I took this tour. The Australian couple who were also on it with me were great company.
We had a nice evening. Our guide took us to unique places in the old moorish district and we tried local specialties. She was considerate of our comfort too, as we had those steep hills to tackle. The ride on the cable car was an experience I am glad we had. The bar where we listened to Fado was a gem, and we were made to feel very welcome. After, she made sure got back to our home base. We felt in good hands all evening.
Unfortunately this tour was not organized because I was the only person who applied for it and the tour operator offered me a different trip in exchange. I strongly regret.
But I highly recommend the trip to Obidos, Nazare, Fatima which was a real success thanks to the beauties and riches Portugal has to offer and, above all, thanks to the exceptional guide, Andreia Costa.
This was a great night out, with a wonderful dinner and excellent Fado performances by several singers. I was delighted to have the opportunity to buy a CD by Rute Soares, one of the best Fado singers I have heard. Our guide, Andrea, was delightful, and is to be commended for her unfailing professionalism in dealing with a very difficult client.
I thoroughly enjoyed this tour, I think it has a bit of everything around Lisbon.
After having my wallet stole I was in no mood for 'Fado' - but we went ... what an excellent evening - the city tour incorporated all of he 'must see' places of interest - our driver/tour guide was knowledgeable and the venue and dinner were of high standard ... but above all, the singers [there were 2 female and on male soloists] were as good as any Operatic divas! Top marks to Viator!
Our group enjoyed a delightful evening walk with our informative and entertaining guide. She shared many interesting stories and our evening ended in a tiny fado restaurant where we sat at a long table and shared traditional tasting plates, drank local wine and listened to two fado performances. Please note that etiquette requires silence during the fado singing, so sit quietly, relax, sip wine and appreciate the performance.
Wonderful evening. Only 3 of us but this in fact enhanced the experience. Plenty to eat and music entertaining.
It was a very nice night. We decided to do this tour our first day and it was a great idea. The tour drove us around Lisbon and from that we were able to decide where we would like to go and see on our own throughout our stay. Ending the night at the Fado show and dinner was the perfect ending to our first night.
I loved this tour, the dinner and show were excellent, and Pedro our guide was charming and friendly, but respectful. The tour of Lisbon sights before the dinner was nice, as although I had walked to many of the places during the day, it was lovely to see them in the evening light. Pedro then dropped the tour group at the restaurant in the Alfama district. I felt like I had experienced an authentic Fado evening, as I seemed to be the only person in the restaurant who didn't speak Portuguese! ( The other members of my tour group were Brazilian). I booked this tour at the last minute, perhaps if I had booked earlier I would have been matched with other English speakers, but despite the language barrier we had a great night! As I was travelling on my own it was a good way to experience the Lisbon nightlife. Pedro then picked us up and took us back to our hotels, insisting on walking me right to the door as it was quite late, which I thought was very gallant. A delightful evening.
Very knowledgeable guide, interesting 1.5-hour city tour included a beautiful viewpoint. The restaurant was nice and the dinner was delicious (we could not even finish everything because the dinner and Fado started at 9:00 pm). Beautiful performances as well
