What You Can Expect

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.

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 !

While the shorter days prevented us from really seeing the sunset, this tour was one of the highlights of my trip to Lisbon. Our guide, Pedro, was knowledgeable and enthusiastic about both the city and fado, and made the experience very enjoyable.

Daniela was the most engaging tour guide. Funny with great stories. Explained all the sites in great detail. Fado was nice but nothing special. Food OK. But Daniela more than made up of any shortcomings. Would recommend to people who have never been to Lisboa.
