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.
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.
Went on a 3-hour city walking tour with Inside Lisbon booked online with Viator on our first full day in the city. Our tour guide was Miguel who was great, well informed and very personable. He filled us in with historical and cultural background, plus lots of less well known facts about the city's monuments and history. Miguel packed a lot in the 3-plus hours, including a tram ride, visit to the cathedral and nearby viewpoint, pastel de nata tasting local speciality custard pastry and a visit to a cheese shop for a glass of wine and cheese/meat sampling - all included in the tour price. Highly recommended if you want to find out about the city from a local expert. We also dined out on some of the restaurant recommendations our guide passed on to our small group - thanks Miguel, we had some lovely meals out !!
Great tour: 1 you get to walk of foot all over Lisbon we like walking rather than bus-ing, 2 tour gives a good mental map on the toplogy of the city, where/how to reach interesting neighbourhoods and sites, 3 our guide -Tiago - can't prais him enough -- spoke English wonderfully, radiated love and enthusiasm towards his city, tought us a lot of cultural facts, history of Lisbon 4 at the end of the tour we got to ask questions ranging from history and politics to where to best buy what...All around a great tour! Our two kids 12 and 9 yo really liked the tour too! Tasting cream custards mid-tour is a great little addition, sustains you well for the rest of the tour :
Loved our guide! Small group, lots of information in a fun manner.

This was my first time to Europe, let alone Lisbon, so I wanted to absorb as much information and culture as I could. My guide's name was Margaurita Lisboa born and raised, and she was informative, knowledgeable, and passionate about Lisbon. Our tour lasted a little over 3 hours, and the time went by quickly. I think the max number of people is 20 per tour, I was fortunate to have a group of 10. Even with 10, unless you were close to our guide, it was a little difficult to hear her. My group was very cordial and friendly to one another. I feel I have gained a lot out of the tour, and I would highly recommend it to anyone. We did cover everything listed on the description of the tour, plus a lot of extra tidbits here and there
