Full description
Explore Lisbon on this 3-hour walking tour, getting in-depth knowledge about the Portuguese capital from an experienced local guide. Start the tour in Rossio Square, the heart of both new and old Lisbon, keeping an eye out for the intricate neo-Manueline architecture at Rossio Central Station. In the middle of Restauradores Square, you will see the obelisk that commemorates the restoration of Portugal’s independence from Spain. At Carmo Square, learn about the Carnation Revolution of 1974 that ended 48 years of dictatorship. In addition to the city's greatest monuments, you will also get an intimate introduction to some of Lisbon's best neighborhoods. Visit the elegant Chiado district and see old cafés, boutiques, theatres, and quaint bookstores. Try a typical Portuguese pastry (the famous Pastel de Nata). Continue to the Moorish Alfama neighborhood and get an up-close encounter with the art of Fado, Lisbon’s unique musical genre. A highlight of the excursion is a visit to Lisbon’s cathedral, built in 1147, and the city’s oldest church. End this fascinating tour of Lisbon’s best neighborhoods at Praça do Comércio, and see the former entrance hall of the city.

Joanna was a wonderful guide. She was kind, knowledgeable and funny and made this tour of Lisbon an absolute delight. It was easy to find the meeting point. The tour helped familiarise me with the main areas of Lisbon and I felt confident navigating the area after. I really enjoyed hearing about the history of the city and the character of the different areas as well as the culture. It was an absolutely fantastic tour and I would highly recommended it.

Joana is a great tour guide. She explained the history of the city in a fun and interesting way. We visited different areas of the city and got to know the essence of the city districts. We also had a great view over Alfama, while eating delicious cod cakes and drinking green whine.

The walking tour was very easy to book and everything went smoothly on the day. Andre was very attentive to each person in the group and was very knowledgeable. His passion for Lisbon as a native of the city really came across. He was also happy to answer everyone's question, be they about the local history or the best fish restaurants.
