Meet an informative, local guide at historic Restauradores Square where a striking obelisk commemorates the restoration of Portugal's independence back in 1640, after decades of Spanish rule.

Continue on to explore the magnetic neighbourhood of Mouraria - a melting pot of cultures from far and wide, and a place you wont see on other Lisbon tours! Portugal's seafaring past has allowed many different cultural influences to contribute to the richness of modern-day Lisbon. Pass small churches, mosques and shops selling goods from far-flung places.
Learn about Fado (Lisbon's unique music) and walk past the birthplace of the legendary Maria Severa, Fado's first superstar who used to sing in Lisbon's taverns many years ago. Our Lisbon tour then satisfies your appetite by stopping at a small, hidden bakery where traditional pastries and espresso coffee will provide a tasty pick-me-up and another insight into the local way of life.
Soak up some Lisbon sightseeing highlights and history while visiting churches and taverns then stop to taste Portuguese cheese and authentic, locally made marmalade. Explore the highlights of the cultural and bohemian districts of Chiado, Bairro Alto and Bica.
Afterwards, take a short trip to the Tagus River, the subject of many Portuguese songs and poems. Board a ferry for a 20-minute journey to Mouraria, Bairro Alto, Chiado, Cais do Sodré and the picturesque Cacilhas, where Portuguese green wine and freshly-caught seafood awaits! Enjoy magnificent views from the South Bank then return to Lisbon.

Sofia is fantastic as a Tour Leader, very knowledgable and caring at the same time. She answered all our questions, good pacing and very patient too. The tour was more than expected, very complete. Lots of walking and enough resting time too. Love it! But Sofia L. Is the best! She showed us every corner and we are leaving with a beautiful image of Portugal because of you. Thank you Sofia!
