We had a wonderful experience, starting with our guide Mihaela, she is friendly, and knows her city very well. She picked us up at the hotel, took us around the city to see Lisbon at night quite fascinating!. Then it was time for the main event - an evening of Fado. I found the show revealed the soul of the portuguese people, heartwarming. The meal was typical, local fare and delicious! To that you add abundant local wines and beer, the result was an evening of unforgettable splendor. Obrigado!

Very good experience. The place was nice and the performers were good. The food was just OK but the tour was mostly about the city and the FADO.The guide was very nice, attentive to the group needs and also trying to please everybody. She knew very interesting things about the city and took us, as the time allowed, to main points of Lisbon.

Had a great time with a great group of people. Sightseeing tour was interesting but a bit choppy. It was split between 2 different guides. Our original guide was held up, so another stepped in until the first guide could take over the tour. But both guides were fun and informative.
Really enjoyed the dinner and authentic Fado show in the heart of the original fado district. Food was delicious and service was excellent. This is a terrific night out that you wouldn't otherwise experience as a regular tourist. A must do/see!
