I had a wonderful time walking the streets of Lisbon with Joana on this tour. She explained so much about the history and significance of the places we walked past, and also provided a really good orientation of the city. Tip: Do this tour as soon as you arrive, so you can roam Lisbon like a pro for the rest of your trip.

Walking tour of Lisboa

I took a “walking tour” of Lisboa. The tour company was “Inside Lisbon” and our tour guide was Anna V. Our starting point for the tour was the Rossio Square and we ended up at the Comercio (Commercial) Square. The tour lasted about three and a half hours. Therefore, expect a lot of walking, climbing stairs, good views, and a good time. The weather was bright and shiny so we enjoyed the pleasant weather. It was a small group and while there were tour members from several countries, the tour was conducted in English. Some of the places we visited or saw were: the train station, Saint Dominic Church, an elevated observation platform, Alfama, the Cathedral of Lisboa, and the approach to the Saint George Castle. We stopped for pastries at a local pastry shop and cheese and ham at the National Cheese Store before finishing the tour at the Praca do Comercio. Anna was an excellent tour guide and I really enjoyed the tour.

Excellent overview of the city - perfect for when you first arrive. Luis Pena, our guide, was very good and provided a wealth of information from local history to some good places to eat and drink. Any questions, he has the answer. It gave us a good grounding and ideas about which areas to return to during the rest of our trip.
