Explore Old Lisbon with a local guide!


On this 3 hour narrated walking tour you will explore some of the oldest quarters of the city of Lisbon. Namely, Alfama, Lisbon's most ancient quarter, and Graça, a community rich with working class history.

First I will take you to explore the Graça neighborhood which features fine examples of urban art by artists from around the world and some of the best views of the city of Lisbon, like the Miradouro da Graça and Nossa Senhora do Monte.

Afterwards we will visit Alfama. Famous for its narrow maze-like streets and stairs, Alfama is home to a proud tight-knit community that has lived in the area for centuries and whose passion is for Fado music and the centuries old traditions that honor Saint Anthony. Here we will immerse ourselves in the neighborhood's day to to day life and navigate the medieval streets until we reach the Sé Cathedral, Lisbon's oldest church.

The end location for this tour is not far from the Castle of Saint George. I am more than happy to walk you to the Castle should need me to.

A Recent Review of this tour

Our tour with Rui was outstanding. He was not only incredibly knowledgeable and able to explain things clearly and patiently, he was attentive to our mixture of interests and even our ability to manage the sometimes challenging topography of Lisbon. We have enjoyed Tours by Locals guides in Budapest, Amsterdam, Barcelona, and now Lisbon and Rui is at the top of the list of excellent guides.
