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

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

Begin your walking tour of Lisbon at Restauradores Square, the perfect spot to hear a bit of Lisbon history. Your informative local guide will tell you about Portugal’s Restoration years and what effect this period had on the places you will see during your three- to four-hour tour.

Get on the move by exploring the magnetic neighborhood of Mouraria, a melting pot of cultures and one of the city’s most modern areas, where tourists don't often venture. Pass small churches, mosques and shops selling goods from far-away places. Learn about Fado, Portugal's own music genre that was declared a UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage, as you walk past the birthplace of the legendary Maria Severa (Fado’s first superstar).

Next, visit a small, hidden bakery where traditional pastries and coffee will provide you with a tasty treat and another insight into local life in Lisbon. Then, walk past the beautiful Gothic-style Rossio train station, visit Rossio Square (Lisbon’s main square) and find out how much the city has changed since the devastating earthquake of 1755 that destroyed 85 percent of the city.

Continue visiting historical landmarks, churches and other attractions before stopping again for a taste of Portuguese cheese and locally made marmalade. Then see the picturesque Carmo Square with its beautiful Carmo Convent, and walk up to the top of the famous Santa Justa funicular to enjoy wonderful views.

Walk through the trendy old district of Chiado, an aristocratic quarter home to small shopping centers, boutiques, historical cafes and old bookstores. Compare it with Barrio Alto, Lisbon’s bohemian district and the center for nightlife. Then take a short ferry ride on the River Tagus toward the picturesque Cacilhas, where Portuguese green wine and freshly caught seafood awaits. Enjoy magnificent views from the south bank before returning to central Lisbon.

We loved the tour with Sophia. She was very informative and very helpful and considerate toward my husband who is a bit disabled and walks with a cane. We signed up for this tour before he had problems walking and in fact tried to contact you twice to change to a driver tour but you never got back to us. We had a lot of fun and were grouped with fun people. Great guide!

This tour was excellent. Our tour guide was fantastic. Friendly and knowledgeable about all of Lisbon. Food was good as well. Great tour when you first arrive. We took the Lisbon Walking Tour with Port Wine and Tapas as soon as this tour ended and by the end of the day we knew all about Lisbon and had seen all of the major sites.

Martha did an excellent job showing the group another side of Lisbon. The tastings were delicious and she was very informative about the food, drinks and history of Lisbon.

This tour was fantastic. Our group was small (5 people) but this was perfect. Our guide (Sofia) was friendly, knowledgeable, helpful and really nice. We had a fantastic time, it really helped to get to know our way around the city. I absolutely recommend if you like food, drinks and a wee walk :)

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015

This was a fantastic tour, well balanced between sightseeing and food tastings. Sofia, our guide, was extremely helpful and had a very relaxed and cheerful demeanor. I booked this tour for myself and four other friends. We were all very impressed and were very glad we did it.

A fantastic day. Sofia made us feel we were on a day out with a friend who wanted to show us her home town. It was a great way to see Lisbon and discovered places we would never have found.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015

Great tour...port and cheese, wine and shrimp and fresh fish. Guide Margueritte was terrific. Well organized, learned a lot and it ended with a ferry ride...she even taught us about the local public transit system and how to avoid the long lines at the bakery in Belem.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015

I would highly recommend this tour. Sofia was my guide and she was a wealth of knowledge. She told me tales with a pride that made me feel welcomed. The pairing of food/wine with walking and seeing sites is a fantastic concept that works. Because the tour was only 4 hours in length approximately, I was able to enjoy more touring on my own afterwards. Loved this tour and would do it again!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015

Our guide was great, it is about a 5 hour walk plus ferry ride, with about six stops for food and/or drink. We spent 10 days in Portugal and this might have been best part.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015

I highly recommend this tour. Experiencing Lisbon with our guide, Sofia, was like experiencing an inside look at a home town with a friend. Sofia is both passionate and knowledgeable about Lisbon, and this tour took us to places that we never would have discovered on our own. The history was incredibly interesting, the food and drink were fantastic, and the pace was ideal. Some of my favorite food discoveries on the tour were pastel de nata, vino verde, and bolinho de bacalhau salt cod fritters. Take this tour during the beginning of your trip so that you will know what to order in restaurants for the rest of the trip. When our tour ended, Sofia was nice enough to give us further suggestions on what to go see and where to eat. She truly enhanced our Lisbon experience.
