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.

Miguel was full of fun and interesting information about Lisbon. This tour was long and informative, but we had plenty of short breaks to take in the scenery and relax between sights. Highly recommend.

Despite a rainy day, Pedro and Rebecca provided an interesting and fun introduction to central Lisbon through walking, wine, beer and food. Pedro was skilled at relating Lisbon's history to current affairs, making this a great way to spend a day immersed in this beautiful city. The ferry ride across the Tagus for lunch was a highlight of the trip. Both Pedro and Rebecca were very generous with their time and travel tips. I highly recommend this tour.
