What people are saying about Chiado

Alicia was great and we got to taste all of the traditional Lisbon foods. I really liked the history tour though she spoke a bit fast. The only thing that I disliked was the long hike straight uphill to the bifana place, maybe breaks during that walk? Finishing up with lunch was nice and then stopping at Time Out Market was wonderful as I was able to continue to explore by myself. A good group size and again great tastes, I highly recommend this tour at the beginning of your Lisbon visit.

A wonderful way to learn about Lisbon history as well as sample its wide variety of cuisine. Our guide spoke excellent English was passionate about Lisbon and its culture and engaged the group really well. He left us with some great recommendations. Thank you Jamie

This tour was worth. We learned so much about Lisbon's history outside of the gourmet theme. Our guide Rita is very professional and offered us her full knowledge about Lisbon's classic food and history to us. Thanks Rita!

Excellent tour. Rita is a fabulous host, and brilliant story teller. Great opportunity to explore Lisbon, learn about the history, and eat tasty food!

Jaime was an excellent guide. We had excellent food and learned a lot about the history of Lisbon and great places to go and explore after our trip.
