Experience Lisbon: Small-Group Walking Tour with Food and Wine Tastings

Meet your local guide at Restauradores Square in central Lisbon for your small-group walking tour with food and wine tastings. Begin your 3.5-hour tour learning how Portugal dedicated this square to the reclamation of its independence in 1640 after 60 years of Spanish rule.

Stroll to the multicultural neighborhood of Mouraria. Hear how this was traditionally a district home to Muslims and later Jews. Get a local feel as you explore the small churches, mosques, and charming international shops. Here, visit the birthplace of Maria Severa, the Queen of Fado, and learn about Portugal’s own musical genre that was inscribed in the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage list in 2011.

Walk with your guide and discover a bakery tucked away from the crowds. Indulge a mouth-watering pastry with a hot coffee as your guide tells stories of Lisbon lore. Next, see the Neo-Manueline façade as you promenade past Rossio train station towards Rossio Square. At this 19th century historical square observe classic calcada Portuguesa stones assembled to resemble waves which may pay tribute to the devastating Lisbon earthquake of 1755.

As you make your way towards beautiful Carmo Square, see churches and other historical landmarks. Then, stop at cute shop and sample local marmalade and delicious Portuguese cheese. After a short walk, enjoy stunning views of Carmo Convent and short while later climb to the top of Santa Justa funicular. From this vantage point, stare out over Lisbon’s historic center.

Walk onward to the lively Chiado district and soak up the excitement of surrounding boutiques, classic bookstores, and trendy cafes. Then, see Lisbon’s best bars and the center of nightlife in the Barrio Alto district. Your tour reaches its climax aboard a short ferry ride of the River Tagus. Cruise to Cacilhas, rich with maritime heritage, and savor fresh seafood paired with Portuguese green wine. Capture stellar views of the Tagus River before you finish your meal and head back to central Lisbon where your tour ends.

Excellent tour. Our guide Pedro Osorio was superb and looked after us extremely well. The food and drinks were well spaced out and of very good quality. Pedro is friendly and knowledgeable and went over and above to ensure we had a great tour. Highly recommended.

This tour is a great way to begin your stay in Lisbon. My guide Margarida was both knowledgeable and passionate about her country. Learning details of buildings you would otherwise just walk past, and being taught the Portugese culture was wonderful. I feel I learned a lot, and was happy to be directed to great restaurants and other sites to see.

Best part of my Lisbon vacation. Margarita was a fantastic guide. She took us to the best places for food and wine tastings. Answered endless questions from everyone in the group and was just so nice. She also provided many helpful tips about other things to see, where to shop and how to get around. I can't recommend this tour enough! Should be the first thing you do when you get to Lisbon.

This tour was outstanding. Our tour guide Pedro was excellent. We traveled throughout Lisbon's neighborhoods, stopping at various food locales to sample the local delicacies and meet the people. It was delightful. Food and wines were delicious and I enjoyed all aspects of the tour. There were just 7 people on our tour so it was intimate and we all got to know one another which made the tour even more special. I would recommend this tour to anyone!
