I would have liked to attend a fado club. However, my schedule and those of the clubs in Lisbon did not match up for the night i had available. Fafo in Chiado filled the gap very nicely for me. The theatre in conveniently located for the Lisbon Metro.

The tour was A wonderful walk through the town. The Fado singers were amazing and the quality of the food was a nice surprise. All in all a good time for the family. I don’t recommend it for families with small children though

a must do while in Lisbon. The music was incredible and they had amazing voices. Such an cool show. All i can say is, you can't miss it.

A breathtaking show full of joy and spreading happiness, wonderful Fado traditional singing that melts the heart. Highly recommended

Very good performance overall. I recommend to anyone traveling to Portugal.
