What You Can Expect
Continue your Lisbon city walk to Liberdade Avenue, where you can observe Portuguese art deco architecture like the 18th-century Foz Palace and the Eden Theatre. Nearby, visit the Rossio Central Station and listen as a train heads into the 1.61-mile (2.6 km) tunnel towards Sintra. Hear how this 19th century engineering marvel was built and stands as one of Portugal’s most impressive accomplishments.
Next, head to historic Carmo Square, home of the 1974 Carnation Revolution. Here, learn how Portugal’s previous dictatorial regime collapsed after a 48-year rule. Stroll onward to reach the charming Chiado neighborhood full of boutiques, theaters, bookstores and vintage cafés. Explore this chic quarter while stopping for a coffee (own expense) or popping into a store for a peruse the souvenirs. Shortly thereafter, rendezvous with your guide for a fun ride on Lisbon’s classic tram.
Hop off at Alfama, an old quarter, known for its Moorish heritage and the establishment of Fado. Learn about Portugal’s melancholic music as you walk by Fado restaurants tucked in between alleys and winding streets.
Finally, arrive at Lisbon’s oldest cathedral, Sé de Lisboa. Snap some beautiful photos and then walk to the your last stop, the majestic Commerce Square (Praça do Comércio). Hear how the reception hall was used to welcome travelers arriving from the Atlantic, before your tour concludes and you continue exploring on your own.
Loved this tour. The guide was extremely knowledgeable and kept us smiling even though it was pouring rain. He went out of his way to find the person who had wandered off. The tour itself last for about 3 hours and we learnt a lot about Lisbon. Two tastings were also included in the tour.
Great tour with our knowledgeable and genial guide Helder. Although it was raining most of the time, we thoroughly enjoyed the informative and entertaining explanations provided. We had a lovely break for delicious cheese, sausage and wine and another for pastel de nata - delicious custard tarts. The tram ride was great too. Definitely recommended as a great introduction both to the history but also to the layout of Lisbon. I really liked that the group was small about 10 and we first introduced ourselves and could say what we were expecting from the tour. As a result, the ice was broken and everyone chatted easily. Thank you so much!
Great walking tour. Our guide was very informative and good at answering questions.
Great way to learn about Lisbon and find out where best to go. Thiago was a great guide, passionate about what he does and has great knowledge and insight about the city that you don't get from the guidebooks. He was on time and booking the tour was great value and easy.
Tiago was an amazing tour guide. He was very knowledeable about Lisbon and provided very interesting details about all aspects of the city. Our group was only 4 people, so it was very personalized. In addition he answered any questions we had and provided personalized recommendations on restaurants and places for Fado, which were amazing! Thank you Tiago!
