Know More about this tour

Meet your guide in central Lisbon and set off on your private walking tour of this fascinating city.

Stop first in Rossio Square (Praça do Rossio), Lisbon’s main meeting place since the Middle Ages. Gaze at the fountains and buildings, and admire the 19th-century black and white wave-shaped mosaics that cover the square.

Walk to Restauradores Square (Praça dos Restauradores), where a 98-foot (30-meter) high obelisk commemorates Portugal’s independence from Spain in 1640. Here, take in the art deco Eden Theatre building, 18th-century Foz Palace and Liberdade Avenue, the 19th-century boulevard that is Lisbon’s main lifeblood.

Also, stop to see the intricate architecture of Rossio Station (Estação do Rossio), and learn how it connects Lisbon to Sintra via a 1.6-mile (2.6-km) rail tunnel that was excavated under the city in the 19th century.

Next, visit Carmo Square (Largo do Carmo), the picturesque scene of Portugal’s 1974 ‘Carnation Revolution,’ and site of the skeletal ruins of the 14th-century Carmo Convent.

Midway through your tour, stop at a cafe to refuel with a delicious pastel de nata, one of Portugal's delectable egg tarts, before setting off with your guide once more.
Walk to the elegant Chiado neighborhood, where the streets are lined with swish cafes, boutiques and theaters, and then ride a vintage tram to Alfama, Lisbon’s oldest and former Moorish neighborhood. Almost a city within a city, the area is filled with cobbled alleys, squares and pretty whitewashed houses.

Wander the lanes as your guide recounts Alfama’s history and its role in the birth of fado, Portugal’s melancholic folk music. Pass fado houses and the Fado Museum, and admire Lisbon cathedral (Sé de Lisboa), tucked into the center of Alfama.

After, walk to Commerce Square (Praça do Comércio), Lisbon’s huge waterside square, where your tour ends. Get directions from your guide back to your hotel or continue exploring independently.

  • The tour was excellent and I would highly recommend it, the walk was at a good pace and very informative. Our guide Miguel was really knowledgeable and took care to ensure that everyone in our party got the most from the tour. Miguel, gave us some great tips for travelling around Lisbon. This is a good way to see Lisbon.

  • We took this tour on our first day in Lisbon. It was the perfect beginning of our time in Portugal. Claudia was very knowledgeable and spoke perfect English. She covered topics we would never have learned about in a big tour. Excellent job!

  • This was the ideal walking tour taking us around the old parts of the city and letting us see places of interest on foot. Our guide Marguerita was brilliant and made the tour both interesting and enjoyable.

  • Nice tour of the city of Lisbon. Would have liked to see more of the neighborhoods and places only the locals see. Walked up many hills which was a challenge for 2 people in our party. Our guide was not a native of Lisbon and had been living there for only 2 years. She was very nice and helpful and did her best to tailor the tour to our needs.

  • 3 hour wait at airport
    Don't fo it

  • Tour guide Racquel was excellent and showed us all of the sites close to the city centre

    We had a taste of local foods and wine which was good and were given good info on where to go further afield

    Big disappointment was not being able to ride the tram due to queues

  • Guide was just ok.

  • We had limited time in Lisbon, and this tour introduced us to the key neighborhoods we wanted to see. What really made it, though, is our wonderful tour guide, Margharita, who is one of the best we've ever had.

  • We have done many private walking tours in many different cities with Viator They all have been excellent .Viator private walking tours are our go to tours in any new city. Pedro our guide was friendly, knowledgeable,on time and adapted to how long to stay at each site. We could not have enjoyed this private tour and more than we did. Pedro was terrific in all departments.

  • The half day format is the perfect amount of time for those who want a bit of a structured tour to begin their exploration of the city. Our guide's English was perfect and she was very knowledgeable.
