Adriano introduced us to Lisbon on our arrival with a wonderful walking tour in the Old Town and excellent fado in Alfalma. We learned the layers of history and present events shaping Lisbon. Adriano is smart, friendly, and helpful with tips for our next day exploration. We enjoyed our evening with him very much. His fado choice was perfect. Good music and entertainment. Good memories of our night in Lisbon. Highly recommend.

My husband and I have had many local guides in many countries, and we believe that Adriano has been one of the best! He went above and beyond and made careful preparations to make our tour memorable. He is very knowledgeable about the history and hidden gems of his community and was more than happy to share them with us in a way that felt warm and personal. Our time with him felt more like time spent with an old, well-known friend and our tour with him gave us the perfect welcome to his country Portugal.

Great fun! Great music! Great food! Great knowledge! Great tour! Adriano did a wonderful job of teaching us about Fado and Lisbon. Yes it was a tour, but I felt like a local.

Book this tour! It was the highlight of my 3 nights in Lisbon. Adriano was informative and interesting. He took me to places that I hadn't seen, and the ones that I had seen gave a completely different perspective at night. His background in sociology lent a unique perspective, including the social dynamics between the various neighborhoods & the rise of Fado music in Lisbon and other parts of Portugal. The Fado house we went to was a small venue and as authentic as it gets. I highly recommend this tour.

This one was all day and was excellent. Adriano is very knowledgeable about the history, architecture, and politics of the city. He describes these well and points out changes over the centuries. He is open to suggestions and offers to stop and have some food and shopping if that benefits the tour. He selects an excellent tour route around the city. He knows the the locations of the best views. He provides a nice overview of the people and districts of the city.

Take this tour by Adriano if you want to see and hear traditional Fado music. He selected an excellent small restaurant where we enjoyed the music and dining. He translated the stories sung by the artists. He provided a great tour through the narrow streets and bars.

Adriano is a very personable and enthusiastic guide. He knows Lisbon and Fado history extremely well. The Fado Club we went to was small, intimate and very far away from the usual tourist track. The evening was an unforgettable experience ending with locals from the neighborhood dropping by to jam with the musicians after the last set was finished. I can't recommend this tour highly enough.
