Lisbon Sunset Small-Group Walking Tour with Fado Performance

Enjoy a beautiful Fado performance while savoring delicious Portuguese tapas

Meet your guide before sunset in central Lisbon for a small-group guided walking tour with fado performance. Kick-off your walk with a visit to historic Praça dos Restauradores a square that is home to the landmark obelisk which commemorates Portugal’s independence from Spain in 1640.

Then, wander beside the Gates Sant Antão street (Rua das Portas de Santo Antao) and go by the old Sant Antão gates where the old city’s main entrance once stood. Arrive at the renown Casa Alentejo a former moorish palace converted to a culturally intriguing restaurant. Peer inside and witness a building that features beautifully tiled walls, music, and rich delicacies from the Alentejo region of Portugal.

Next, step into a local lounge. From here, hop aboard a classic tram and climb to enjoy a short ride on the vintage Tram 28 – a local transport legend. Take in sweeping views and stop for a break to admire the sunset over this intoxicating city from the viewpoints of the Castle Hills, some of the city’s best-kept secrets. Alas, bust out your camera because the sunset views from this vantage point are killer! 

But why stop here, continue to an elegant cathedral and monastery where Portugal’s royal history now rests. Then, wander into Lisbon’s oldest district Alfama. In this historic neighborhood, learn about the city’s influence from the Moors who once occupied Lisbon. Plus, hear how Alfama was the birthplace of Fado, the famous Portuguese musical genre that is also a member of the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage list. Explore squares, corridors, and colorful tiled walls as you wind your way past lively bars, cafes, and local music joints.

After dusk turns into night, step into a cozy restaurant and brace yourself for a night of traditional Fado in Lisbon. As the show begins, sip a glass of Ginja liqueur made from sour cherries and taste delicious Portuguese tapas. Listen as the music caresses your heart with pain and excitement. Salute the wonderful musicians with a glass of wine and end your evening at Fado house in Alfama.

Joanna was a passionate accademic about the history of Lisboa and Fado. We were delighted by her commentary and especially the Fado and meal at the end of the tour.

I was skeptical at first...a walking tour--I can do that on my own--not so! It was one of our most favorite nights out. Our tour guide Ricardo was so knowledgeable and lovely company. He took us through back streets and into the heart of Alfama with a short stop at a little bar for some Ginginha. The restaurant Fado em Si was excellent and the Fado singers truly talented and entertaining. If you want to immerse yourself in the Portuguese culture--this is a must!

Very interesting, enjoyable PM walking and Fado tour with a lively and energetic guide Joana, who spoke excellent clearly articulated easy to hear and understand English, was straightforward, and had a good sense of humor. She studied art history, and works as a librarian during the day. There were 13 people 4 Germans, a couple Aussies, and I believe the rest were Americans. We met the obelisk near the Restauradores Plaza, and then walked a little over two hours through narrow alleys and streets we would not likely have wandered into without a guide, including into the Moorish and Alfama districts, stopping on the way at a hole in the wall little tavern to taste ginjhina, the Portugese sour cherry liqueur very nice liqueur, but avoid the scary WC. We also rode a tram uphill, 12, that parallels the famous Tram 28. The walking was moderately strenuous, about 3 miles plus guide stops. Though there were no major uphills, we had downhills on irregular surfaces. The major walking challenge was at times walking on the finely polished cobblestones in some areas, which can be slippery, and trying to stay upright while riding the crowded tram uphill. The Fado performance and small plates food served at the end were also very nice and representative of Portuguese food. I had never heard Fado before,thought it sounded a lot like Russian gypsy music.
Unfortunately due to delay in catching the tram, we did not make it to the top of the hill before the sun set, it was already dark, though it was still quite pretty. A couple pointers:
Wear shoes with good grip, for the slick cobblestones.
Tour was scheduled to last 3 hours but worked out to 2.5 hours walking sans WC, then over 1.5 hours fado and food. When got to the restaurant it was almost 9:30, and then tradition is not to eat during the performances, which alternated fado singing 3 songs at a time, four sets with 20 minutes eating at a time. Eat a bit before the tour if you hunger easily, or eat fast. Fun!

Our Guide was Joana Mateus. The walk around the old parts of Lisbon was very interesting and informative, with plenty of historical detail. The Fado show with food was brilliant ! I am a fado afficionado, but the show was even better than I anticipated - longer and much more varied with many different artistes and styles. Joana was a great guide - she had extremely good local knowledge, and there were no questions she couldn't answer. That coupled with her good sense of humour made a very entertaining evening !
