Know More about this tour

Discover one of Europe's most captivating and picturesque capitals, built on a series of hills and offering panoramic views from countless spots. Youll explore the city for 3 hours with a knowledgeable local guide who will make sure that you have an interesting and fun experience.

Your tour begins in the 5-centuries-old Bairro alto, where youll learn about the evolution of the city. After the earthquake of 1755 this space attracted families from the Baixa and Bairro districts, who began the process of renewal.

Pass through the garden of So Pedro de Alcntara and enjoy stunning views of the Baixa and the south bank of the Tagus River.

Visit the church and museum of San Roque, built by the Jesuits. San Roque was one of the first Jesuit churches in Portugal and in fact, one of the first worldwide. The church has an austere faade, but an interior that features gilding, tiles, and paintings that make it a wonderful museum of Mannerist and Baroque style.

Heading down the hill, youll come to the Carmo convent and church, fine examples of the citys Gothic architecture. This is a site of historical importance as it was here that the Carnation Revolution began in 1974, putting an end to nearly 5 decades of dictatorship.

A little further on, youll arrive at the Santa Justa elevator, an imposing monument built in the Gothic Revival style, that provides one of the best viewpoints in the city.

Youll see a number of attractions in Baixa, in the heart of the city. After a short break, youll take a ride on the tram, going up from the castle to the Portas do sol.

At the Portas do sol youll see the Monastery of So Vicente de Fora, the National Pantheon, and the Alfama district that spans several narrow streets to the River Tagus.

Alfama is one of the oldest and most traditional neighborhoods of Lisbon, known for its fado houses, and the popular festivals of saints, particularly St. Anthony.

The tour ends at Lisbon Cathedral, built in 1150, 3 years after the city was taken back from the Moors. Over time it has been subject to various architectural changes, becoming a mixture of different styles.

    Very informative, a good overview of the history and culture and geography of Lisboa! Our guide, Susy was great and even emailed us when we had a question after the tour!

    The tour was interesting and a nice experience. Meeting point not so clear. And the pace was very slow. Logistics was not perfect, but still a good way to explore the city

    Eine super Stadtführung mit Nina! Wir waren eine kleine Gruppe (nur sechs Personen). Nina, ist auf alle Fragen eingegangen und konnte zu jedem Detail in Lissabon etwas sagen. Sie hat uns den besten Und leckerster Stand (bei Dora in Alfama) für Ginjinha gezeigt und uns viele gute Tipps gegeben. Da wir in den drei Stunden nicht alles geschafft haben, hat sie uns trotzdem 45 Minuten weiter durch die schöne Stadt geführt. Wir waren begeistert! Danke, Nina, für die tolle Führung!

    This was well worth doing and very pleased we booked it. The history and culture, we saw areas and streets that we most likely would not have discovered ourselves. We were also taken on a tram ride and treated to a traditional cake and coffee on the tour.

    While the walk covered some of the major sites in Lisbon, it also covered some least known ones that were well worth the time . Along with some stories and history these places proved to be just as interesting.
