Lisbon Sunset Small-Group Walking Tour with Fado Performance

Enjoy a beautiful Fado performance while savoring delicious Portuguese tapas

Meet your guide before sunset in central Lisbon for a small-group guided walking tour with fado performance. Kick-off your walk with a visit to historic Praça dos Restauradores a square that is home to the landmark obelisk which commemorates Portugal’s independence from Spain in 1640.

Then, wander beside the Gates Sant Antão street (Rua das Portas de Santo Antao) and go by the old Sant Antão gates where the old city’s main entrance once stood. Arrive at the renown Casa Alentejo a former moorish palace converted to a culturally intriguing restaurant. Peer inside and witness a building that features beautifully tiled walls, music, and rich delicacies from the Alentejo region of Portugal.

Next, step into a local lounge. From here, hop aboard a classic tram and climb to Our Lady of the Hills (Nossa Senhora do Monte). Alas, bust out your camera because the sunset views from this vantage point are killer! From here swivel your eyes from the 25th of April Bridge across the Tagus River to the Cristo Rei statue ending at the commanding São Jorge castle (Castelo de São Jorge). Nearby, add more megs to your memory card with views and ice cold beer at Graça (included).

But why stop here, continue to an elegant cathedral and monastery where Portugal’s royal history now rests. Then, wander into Lisbon’s oldest district Alfama. In this historic neighborhood, learn about the city’s influence from the Moors who once occupied Lisbon. Plus, hear how Alfama was the birthplace of Fado, the famous Portuguese musical genre that is also a member of the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage list. Explore squares, corridors, and colorful tiled walls as you wind your way past lively bars, cafes, and local music joints.

After dusk turns into night, step into a cozy restaurant and brace yourself for a night of traditional Fado in Lisbon. As the show begins, sip a glass of Ginja liqueur made from sour cherries and taste delicious Portuguese tapas. Listen as the music caresses your heart with pain and excitement. Salute the wonderful musicians with a glass of wine and end your evening at Fado house in Alfama.

This was a surprisingly informative as well as entertaining tour. Our tour leader Joana was the BEST. She shared her passion for Portugal and Fado and gave Lisboa a whole new dimension for visitors.

While the shorter days prevented us from really seeing the sunset, this tour was one of the highlights of my trip to Lisbon. Our guide, Pedro, was knowledgeable and enthusiastic about both the city and fado, and made the experience very enjoyable.

Daniela was the most engaging tour guide. Funny with great stories. Explained all the sites in great detail. Fado was nice but nothing special. Food OK. But Daniela more than made up of any shortcomings. Would recommend to people who have never been to Lisboa.

Daniela Lisbon born and raised was my guide for this tour, and she covered everything in the description of the tour. She was fun, knowledgeable, and informative on the different aspects of the tour. It was just myself and a couple with a young child on this tour. The couple were very pleasant to be with, and their child well behaved this could pose a problem if there were to be an unruly child in your group. Not sure why, but we spent some extra time at the restaurant which was great!, more Fado to experience, and time to fully enjoy dinner and wine. The food was traditional food of Lisbon, and there was a good variety of it on our plates. The wine was a choice of red or white, and it was good not outstanding. I am a first timer to Lisbon, I feel I got a lot out of this tour. I would highly recommend it to anyone!

Great tour!! Just a delightful city and a very charming guide. We had the best night, exploring the old town and riding a tram, seeing the streets alive with locals and buzz of the evening. The Fado show was excellent and the food very good. It was beyond what we expected. There were only 4 of us on the tour with our guide so we received very personal service. We were all on a cruise ship overnighting in Lisbon. Our guide called a taxi for us and made sure we arrived safely back on the ship. Highly recommended!

Daniela, our guide, was fantastic. She was so knowledgeable and presented the info with such enthusiasm. Tiago was great too! We walked through the old parts of town, and sampled some local drinks in addition to taking a ride on the tram.

The fado show and dinner was great. Daniela gave us some background on the fado and helped us understand what was happening.

I highly recommend this tour!
