What You Can Expect

Lisbon City by Night and Fado Restaurant Dinner

See the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Jerónimos Monastery lit up!

Head to central Lisbon on your own or enjoy free pickup at your hotel, and meet your local guide for a unique way of experiencing Lisbon.

Start your Lisbon illuminations evening tour at Marqués de Pombal Square, where a monument to the Marquis of Pombal stands as a memorial to the important role the marquis played in Lisbon's rebirth in 1755. From your coach, see the beautiful square while hearing interesting details about Portuguese history, including the 1755 earthquake that destroyed two-thirds of the city.
See Lisbon lighting up on the drive along the Avenue da Liberdade, Lisbon's main avenue. Experience Lisbon coming to life at the end of the day as you approach Rossio Square, one of the liveliest areas of the city and located in the heart of Lisbon.

Continue along the waterfront to the Belém district, home to the famous Monument to the Discoveries, dedicated to the greatest Portuguese explorers, and the Belém Tower, a UNESCO World Heritage monument that commemorates Portugal's role in the discovery of the Americas. In this area, you will also see the Jerónimos Monastery, another UNESCO World Heritage-listed site, where many great figures of Portuguese history rest.

Admire views of the 25th of April Bridge -- a suspension bridge spanning the Tagus River -- and see Lisbon's reflections on the water from your comfortable coach on the drive back to central Lisbon.

After your tour of Lisbon at night, follow your guide to a traditional Portuguese restaurant. Sit back and enjoy a delicious Portuguese meal (included), while listening to a live Fado performance (Portugal's own music genre) and a folk dance show. The show finishes at midnight, but you may return to your hotel at your leisure.

Every city looks it's best at night and Lisbon is no exception. We didn't realize it when we booked, but this is a private tour. It was just the 4 of us and an excellent, knowledgeable guide. It was extremely nice not to be rushed through. Just a leisurely tour at your pace.

Good food and good entertainment!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2008

This is an absolutely must-do tour. The Lisbon by Night tour was terrific, but I have to admit that the highlight for us was the opportunity to experience a Fado.

4 star rating: Recommended October 2015

The Faro was amazing. However, for dinner there were no options provided and neither myself nor my brother eat seafood, which is what the main course was. When we asked for an alternative, it seemed like it was a big deal, although one was alternately provided. It was a great time, but I gave it only four stars for the seafood and the attitude.

This was a wonderful first night in Lisbon. The dinner was good and entertainment very professional and lovely to listen to. The bus tour on the way back was informative and pleasant. Tour guide made an effort to make sure we were near our hotel.

4 star rating: Recommended July 2012

This was a definite hiighlight of our visit. The tour of the city by night compliments the day tour as you now see the monuments lit up for the evening. The commentary was excellent. We really enjoyed the Fado show which was performed by 3 performers. In addition there was also a folk dance show in addition to the Fado music. The restaurant decor was an excellent choice and the meal was pleasantly well prepared and filling. We definitely recomment this experience to all first time visitors to Lisbon.

4 star rating: Recommended November 2011

Very tasty food served in the Fado restaurant and -above all- excellent the Fado music and dancers. Fado music is so nice and charming as the Tango for Argentina (I love BOTH).
What was not so brillant was the your guide speaking about Lisbon at night, it was a little boring and almost he did not allow any question
