I went on this walking tour with Jaimie, Sandeman's guide. What that man doesn't know about European history and how it weaves into the intricate history of Alfama is probably not worth knowing. He made the whole experience into a story ensuring that we all had a great overview of what we were looking at. I would recommend this walking tour and if you are with Jaimie, you are in for a treat. His English is excellent and he is happy to go off script and answer any question that you have, A wonderful experience and thoroughly to be recommended.

We had a fantastic tour guide! He took us up to see the village of Alfama, which gave us a great flavor of the Moorish culture in bygone days. Lots of walking, which was great! We only had one day to see Lisbon, and this was a great way to spend it.
