What To Expect

Meet your group and expert local guide in central Lisbon for a guided walking tour. After a brief introduction, learn how this 19th-century historical square was built with typical Portuguese stones to resemble waves of the nearby ocean.

Hear how this 19th-century engineering marvel was built and stands as one of Portugal’s most impressive accomplishments.

Next, head to historic Carmo Square, home of the 1974 Carnation Revolution. Here, learn how Portugal’s previous dictatorial regime collapsed after a 48-year rule. Stroll onward to reach the charming Chiado neighborhood full of boutiques, theaters, bookstores, and vintage cafés. Explore this chic quarter while stopping for a coffee (own expense) or popping into a store for a peruse the souvenirs.

Hop off at Alfama, an old quarter, known for its Moorish heritage and the establishment of Fado. Learn about Portugal’s melancholic music as you walk by Fado restaurants tucked in between alleys and winding streets.

Finally, arrive at Lisbon’s oldest cathedral, Sé de Lisboa. Snap some beautiful photos and then walk to your last stop, the majestic Commerce Square (Praça do Comércio). Hear how the reception hall was used to welcome travelers arriving from the Atlantic, before your tour concludes and you continue exploring on your own.

Traveler Tips

Wear comforable shoes as you walk for over three hours and Lisbon is a VERY hilly city.
It was short only three hours but certainly worth the price
Several areas of steep upward walking might prove difficult for some individuals.

Great walking tour of Lisbon
John_R, Nov 2022
A great walking tour. Highly recommended. Learn the tricks of the locals and not walk too many stairs. Our guide, Joana, was excellent.
A must for first time visitors to Lisbon

The area around the train station was packed with history by our guide explaining the significance of monuments and seeing and visiting historical places one could piece together the history of Lisbon and tasting part was very relaxing in a local house in Al Fama area.

Marta was a great guide for the 1/2 day walking tour- it was a nice way to see Lisbon and get some history and explore the different neighborhoods. We stopped for pastries and cod / wine along the way. The walking was easy and we stopped at all the main sites but bring an umbrella in case of rain.

Daniela_H, Nov 2022
It wasn't bad. Sometimes our tour guide got "stuck" on stuff that wasn't that interesting. Pastry and wine tasting was great! Saw nice places in Lisbon which I really appreciate it
Great time exploring Lisbon with Ana Filipa
Albert_T, Nov 2022
There were 12 in our morning tour with Ana and she expertly handled all maneuvering and questions. She speak English very well and is quite a historian. We all appreciated her insights to Lisbon/Portugal’s history. It’s true that unknown access areas and elevators are divulged on this tour, but Lisbon walking can still be strenuous with the hills and uneven walking surfaces. We had a great 3.5 hour tour and a well deserved break following. I highly recommend this walking tour early in your Lisbon stay.

Lindsey_O, Nov 2022
Our tour guide Marta was the best! She did a great job explaining all the highlights of Lisbon with a mix of both historical and fun facts. She took the group all over the city at a great pace. We got to try cod cakes and pastel de natas which were both incredible! Best walking tour my husband and I have ever been on! Highly recommend!
Susanne_M, Oct 2022
Our tour guides name was Andre, and I have to say, this was the absolute best walking tour I have ever been on. His knowledge of, and passion for Portugal is awe inspiring. If you want to dig deeper into the history and stories of Portugal and Lisbon, take this tour. It’s amazing!!! Thank you Andre!!
Sophia is the best!
JanRose_D, Oct 2022
Sophia, our guide, was delightful-both knowledgeable & entertaining. The 3 hours was paced very well with 2 well-timed stops. Great intro to lovely Lisbon.
Wet but enjoyable
zsny674bhq, Oct 2022
Extensive and informative small group familiarisation tour of central Lisbon. All the key areas and views including amazing Pasteis da Nata, Vinho Verde and Cod fiscakes. Andre our guide was good fun and made the day for us.
In you only book one tour, make it this one!
Fernon_M, Oct 2022
Excellent walking tour with Margarita. Our group of 16 were well taken care of and the best part of the tour was learning all the short cut to get to areas of the city via elevator or escalator instead of climbing the hills. Although we did have several to climb on our walk it was very doable for all, including the elderly in our group. I would recommend bringing a bottle of water and wearing great walking shoes. We learned and saw SO much more than we did in two previous foodie and Tuk Tuk tours. If you are on the fence, book this instead. Excellent value!
