Walk through the old district of Chiado, home to boutiques and old bookstores, and compare it with Bairro Alto, Lisbon’s bohemian district.

Excellent tour! Hotel Fenix was very nice! Guides Paulo and Nadia were fantastic.
Excellent tour and great value. We chose the Lisboa Plaza Hotel and it was excellent. Our highlight was the Lisbon walking/tasting tour made very special by our guide Paulo. It was the perfect mix of history, local insight and some good food and wine. The Sintra Cascais and Estoril Coast tour was also great and was a wonderful day out. The evening walking and Fado tour was also very good. We believe it was good value with plenty of time to explore Lisbon ourselves as well. The small groups ensured it was a very personal and enjoyable time and all the guides were friendly and knowledgeable. I highly recommend this tour and it helped us enjoy this beautiful city and surrounds.
