It is the capital of Portugal, a country of small extensions, but immense in diversity. Yes! And is there a better way to get to know the culture of a people if not through its gastronomy? No, there is not. Human nutrition is a complex process, which involves, in addition to the biological aspects, the cultural and historical aspects of a people in such an intricate way that we cannot separate them as if they were isolated areas. And here it would not be different with our Lisbon. For this experience, I invite you to get lost with us through the streets of Lisbon, and discover its stories and flavors. We will visit the most emblematic market in Lisbon, Mercado da Ribeira, as it was called before (today the famous Time Out Market Lisbon), where we will learn about the history of Lisbon through the traditional products and delicacies that we can find in the market. To toast our experience, we will taste some of these delicacies. We will also visit the historic Praça do Comércio with its emblematic Rua Augusta Arch. And how can we talk about the history and gastronomy of Portugal without mentioning our codfish? That's why we also included in this experience a guided visit to the Interpretive Center of the History of Codfish. In addition, we will pass by the famous Rua Cor de Rosa, the Pink Street of Lisbon. This is a tour dedicated to discovering the history of Lisbon and Portugal through its gastronomy. In addition to visits to places with a gastronomic approach, we will visit places of historical and cultural interest in Lisbon. We will also give you gastronomic and restaurant recommendations so that you will be prepared and informed to explore the city with a new perspective and be able to explore the city in a more efficient way after our tour, which is why we suggest that this be one of the first tours that I will do when I arrive in this beautiful city that is Lisbon.

Our guide, Bianca, exceeded all expectations we had for this tour. She had such a vast understanding of Portuguese history and was such a wealth of knowledge. She thoroughly explained everything that we saw and in an engaging manner. Bianca kept our two teenagers so engaged that it made for a wonderful family experience. She answered all of our questions and went above and beyond everywhere we went. I highly recommend this tour and if you can request Bianca, please do so. You will not be disappointed.

Our guide, Abdullah, was great. This trip is a great way to see the city and get to know your way around. Would recommend doing it at the beginning of a trip as Abdullah was great at helping up learn more About Lisbon, finding our way around, and some great hidden gems we would never have seen without him!
