What You Can Expect

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

Enjoy savoring the delicious natas

Make your way to Restauradores Square, where you’ll meet a guide at 10:30am to kick off your walking tour through the heart of the city. This is the perfect place to learn the story of Portugal’s Restoration years—you’ll see traces of this tumultuous time throughout your walk.

The next stop is the diverse neighborhood of Mouraria, overflowing with small churches, mosques, and shops, then head to the birthplace of Maria Severa to find out how fado became a cultural icon in Portugal, listed by UNESCO as part of the world’s Intangible Cultural Heritage.

Pause in a hidden bakery for traditional sweets and coffee before walking to the Gothic-style Rossio train station and Rossio Square. Stop for another tasting of Portuguese cheese and locally-made marmalade, then see the beautiful Carmo Convent that dominates Carmo Square.

Walk to the top of the Santa Justa Funicular to earn sweeping views of the city, and explore the elegant district of Chiado, an ideal spot for browsing boutiques, bookstores, and historic cafes. Hop a ferry across the Tagus River to Cacilhas, where you’ll pause for a glass of Portuguese vinho verde wine and a tasting of freshly-caught seafood, then return to central Lisbon, where this tour concludes.

Our guide was Joanna. She was very good. I liked the tastings and the areas of Lisbon we visited on the tour. She provided us with a lot of historical and food information.
We are traveling with 3 kids ages 8, 11 and 13 and got off the plane that morning without any sleep and had a great time on the tour.

Miguel was our guide and he was terrific. He was very welcoming and took his time to explain what we were seeing/eating/drinking. He had some good suggestions for the balance of our stay, and answered any questions we had.
this tour is a great way to get to know central Lisbon.

Wonderful tour! Our tour guide took us through places we never would have found on our own. We tried local food and drinks and went to a scenic over look of the city, with the hidden elevators. It really gave us a sense of the geography of Lisbon. We highly recommend this tour!

They were over 30 minutes late but they said it was transportation related, that's fine, once the tour got going it was remarkable. We literally spent 12 hours in Lisbon as a long layover, this was the BEST way to spend a few hours. I didn't know what I was getting into or what to expect but now I want to go back and spend more than 12 hours in Lisbon! The value of this tour is undeniable, we got a history lesson and snacks along the way, all included in the price, WHOA. This is a must!

This is the 2nd time we did this tour. It was still as good as 4 years ago. Our guide Claudia had a very deep knowledge of the history and culture of Lisbon and the food and wine we tasted during our tour. We finished the tour at Casa do Alentejo where we had a great selection of local food.
Highly recommended and well worth the money!

This was a nice tour that took you around a lot of the city. It was really a city historical tour more than a food tour. There were a few food stops that were very nice as well. Our guide Hido was very knowledgeable as he was getting a PhD in history so obviously he knew a lot and was very pleasant and shared his knowledge. Good overview of the city on our first day there.

This tour was fantastic! Our tour guide Sofia Landeiro was excellent and so helpful! We learned so much about the history of Lisbon and Portugal from her which was so interesting! The combination of trying food, port, walking, taking the ferry and learning was perfect. I highly recommend this tour!

Interesting and informative tour guided by a Lisbon native! Certainly off the beaten track and avoided most of the more obvious tourist attractions whilst giving a great context to Portuguese history and Lisbon's culture. The food and drink were varied and well spread out along the tour and even the odd downpour what do you expect in January! added to the 'urban adventure'. We were a smallish group of 5 and our guide took into account the differing interests of those with us. I can thoroughly recommend this tour both for its variety and for its lack of 'ordinary'. It gave us a great overview of Lisbon and its people and helped us get our bearings for the rest of our stay.
