An introduction into the city of Lisbon and it's rich maritime history


On this 8 hour narrated walking tour you will explore some the main historical quarters of the city of Lisbon. Namely, Baixa, Bairro Alto, Chiado and Belém.

In the morning I will take you to explore the western hills of the city and visit important sites like the Church of Saint Roque, the Santa Justa Elevator, Rossio Square, and on weekdays you will have the chance to visit the last surviving section of Lisbon's city walls.

After a lunch break we will visit Belém, one of Lisbon's most popular locations. Belém is home to two UNESCO world heritage sites, namely, the Tower of Belém and the Mosteiro dos Jerónimos. The area also features many gardens, fountains, the pleasant riverside breeze and a proud collection of museums and cultural centers. Here I will immerse you in the Age of Exploration.

Along each of these areas, I will be providing you with information on the history of Lisbon and Portugal as a whole, plus a wide variety of topics. Customization is available for this experience upon request.

A Recent Review of this tour

We had booked a full day tour and wanted to change the itinerary with little notice. Rui modified this and rearranged the tour. He was very knowledgeable and passionate about what he was showing us. He made a recommendation for dinner that was fabulous. I will strongly recommend Rui as a a guide.
