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.

Small group of 7, excellent guide, pitched perfect with balance between history and current affairs, great variety of venues...all in all a superb guided tour delivered by an excellent guide, Jorge.
Lovely guide, loads of knowledge and humour
Margarita was a charming guide. I recommend people take this tour on the first day of their holiday you get an excellent overview of the main sites plus advice on where, and where not, to go during the remainder of your trip.

Andre Neco was most amazing. He gave us a wonderful tour without jamming a million dates into us. He took us out for Birthday wine and gave us great recommendations for eating out. We had a great time at Bastardos. Enjoyed the cherry liquor and ate the cherry. The tour was full of useful facts and information. Give this guy a raise.
Absolutely fantastic tour, I would recommend to anyone! The very lovely guide, Margarida, was very knowledgeable and gave plenty of hints and tips for the rest of my stay
This walk and talk was excellent, the guide - Sofia - was knowledgable and entertaining. Although we were in a largish group I felt as though we got personal attention. Highly recommended. Guy T.
Our tour guide, Joana M., was a wonderful ambassador for Lisbon. The tour is an excellent introduction to this charming city and includes some snacks as well as a thrilling tram ride up to the Alfama area. Wear good walking shoes as there are some hills. Thank you, Joana, for a lovely and informative morning.
