Experience Lisbon: Small-Group Walking Tour with Food and Wine Tastings

Enjoy savoring the delicious natas

Meet your local guide at Restauradores Square in central Lisbon for your small-group walking tour with food and wine tastings. Begin your 3.5-hour tour learning how Portugal dedicated this square to the reclamation of its independence in 1640 after 60 years of Spanish rule.

Stroll to the multicultural neighborhood of Mouraria. Hear how this was traditionally a district home to Muslims and later Jews. Get a local feel as you explore the small churches, mosques, and charming international shops. Here, visit the birthplace of Maria Severa, the Queen of Fado, and learn about Portugal’s own musical genre that was inscribed in the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage list in 2011.

Walk with your guide and discover a bakery tucked away from the crowds. Indulge a mouth-watering pastry with a hot coffee as your guide tells stories of Lisbon lore. Next, see the Neo-Manueline façade as you promenade past Rossio train station towards Rossio Square. At this 19th century historical square observe classic calcada Portuguesa stones assembled to resemble waves which may pay tribute to the devastating Lisbon earthquake of 1755.

As you make your way towards beautiful Carmo Square, see churches and other historical landmarks. Then, stop at cute shop and sample local marmalade and delicious Portuguese cheese. After a short walk, enjoy stunning views of Carmo Convent and short while later climb to the top of Santa Justa funicular. From this vantage point, stare out over Lisbon’s historic center.

Walk onward to the lively Chiado district and soak up the excitement of surrounding boutiques, classic bookstores, and trendy cafes. Then, see Lisbon’s best bars and the center of nightlife in the Barrio Alto district. Your tour reaches its climax aboard a short ferry ride of the River Tagus. Cruise to Cacilhas, rich with maritime heritage, and savor fresh seafood paired with Portuguese green wine. Capture stellar views of the Tagus River before you finish your meal and head back to central Lisbon where your tour ends.

This tour was a fantastic start to our stay in Lisbon. Not only did we learn about the history of the city and get to sample traditional food and drinks, but our Lisbon-born guide, Sofia E., gave us lots of tips on what to do and what not to do and what to eat and not to eat! The last stop was a ferry ride across the river for some seafood and green wine. She spent 5 hours with us and it was wonderful. Our 14 year old and 20 year old loved it too! Highly recommend!

This was a great tour early in our week long stay in Lisbon. The small numbers made the tour even more enjoyable. Pedro was extremely knowledgeable and was a great resource in answering questions regarding our stay in Lisbon. The tour went longer than expected and that was fine as we were able to see, taste, and experience a lot. There were several stops during the tour which made it very relaxing. You were able to take time to enjoy the experience rather than being rushed on to the next location. I would definitely recommend this tour early in ones stay in Lisbon.

He gave us a very memorable day with the tour running into 5 hours, about 2 hours more than expected. There were only 6 of us on the day and we all got on well. Would highly recommend.
