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!!!

Meeting Point + Tour Duration

Meeting Point Options: Rail or Bus Station, Hotel, Address or Intersection, Monument/Building, Suggested by Guide: Since we are having a walking time and time is short I would suggest that we would meet in a central hotel or central square of Lisbon,such as Rossio Square or Camoes square. However we can decide the best location.

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.

A Recent Review of this tour

Gloria took my wife and me on a FANTASTIC half-day walking tour of Lisbon are second day there. She should us a lot of "ins and out" so we could enjoy the city as a local. I will definitely recommend her to friends visiting Lisbon.
