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

Enjoy savoring the delicious natas

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.

This was my favorite tour in Lisbon, of the three others that I took. Miguel was terrific, very personable and knowledgeable. The walking tour was well-paced and had more food than I expected. We had plenty of time to take pictures, to sit down and sample food and wine and still see quite a bit of the city. Having good weather certainly helped and although the group was bigger than I expected 12, not 8, it was fine. I would highly recommend this tour.

This was a great tour, with a really fun tour guide. We enjoyed walking around neighborhoods we wouldn't ordinarily experience. The food and wine tastings were fun, and the lunch we had at the little out-of-the-way cafe was delightful.

Manuel was fantastic. Great command of English. The tour was entertaining and yummy. He pointed out such interesting historical facts and unusual sites, we have talked about what learned throughout our stay in Lisbon. It made seeing other sites more fun. Great way to start out your stay in Lisbon.

History, culture, food, wine, and all with wit and good humor. Marguerita was our guide and made the day easy, fun, and super informative. She made sure the whole group felt comfortable together, and we left feeling like we had made a whole new group of friends. She also answered everyone's questions and made great recommendations for future explorations. Highly recommend, and wish we had done it on our first day in Lisbon. Thank you, Marguerita!

We had an excellent time with Miguel. His knowledge about Portugese culture and history was excellent, and the food was amazing. Our tour felt like we were traveling with a close friend. The one issue we had was finding the initial meeting point, but Miguel was very patient and understanding.
