Full day walking and riding tour in Lisbon with your own private guide

Walking tours are active and fun ways of learning on the spot about the local culture. This private walking tour will allow you to discover Lisbon, its display and how the town has evolved throughout time. For the last 2 millennia Lisbon was a roman commercial port; a moorish maze; the harbor of departure for the new world and today it is the Portuguese capital.

Through this experience we are going to visit the former port of Belém and areas that were lively in the Middle Ages as they are today: the historical neighborhoods of "Baixa", "Bairro Alto", "Castelo" and "Alfama".

I hope we can visit Lisbon together!

A Recent Review of this tour

Alexandria was absolutely fantastic! This was my 3rd visit to Lisbon but the first time (after the tour) I really began to understand the city and culture. Her knowledge of Portuguese history is inexhaustible and her personality, delightful. I heartily endorse this woman.
