Let's feel the city and the people

This tour will take you to the best hill top views such as Sao Pedro de Alcantara hill top view or Portas do Sol. You can experience an elevator or funicular ride so that we don't get tired going up the hill. I'll take you through the oldest and most labyrinthine district of Lisbon - Alfama - created by the Moors but also inhabited by Jews and Catholics at a time. . . a real melting pot. and there you'll have the impression that we're lost just like the pirates were when they would go inside that 8th century maze trying to get the city. We'll go through the shopping area of Baixa and also through the lively Chiado neighborhood. In all of it you will breathe the old and modern and most of all you'll feel the unique Portuguese everyday life: people going to work, older people chatting in the squares and coffee-shops, you'll feel the authentic, warm and welcoming Portuguese. Let's explore Lisbon!!!

Estimated Local Cash Needed

20 Euro - We can do everything by foot, but since Lisbon is hilly and spread out, if you want here are some options not included in the tour price:
- Public transportation - 8 € per person for a 24 hour ticket within Lisbon, ie. lifts, funiculars, trams, (previous 3 very traditional) subway, buses
- Taxi - 10 € per taxi (max) for 4 adults + taxi driver, and for this tour normally we would not need to use a taxi more than twice.

If you are a party of more than 3 I will be happy to rent a van or a bus

A Recent Review of this tour

Gloria did a wonderful job. At first she seemed to focus on shopping opportunities, but, once she realized this wasn't our focus, she shifted gears and provided a super tour.
