Downtown Area and Hill of Saint George

Let's experience Lisbon from a different perspective. Walking through the city's neighborhoods, narrow streets and the most ancient parts makes us feel like a true local.
Lisbon is set on hills filled with history. It's foundation goes back 3000 years ago and we can still imagine how the different people lived .
The city has many features from different periods that we will be able to see in this tour. Majestic squares like the commerce square is the biggest in Europe, maze like streets from the time of the romans and moors, old walls still preserved till today, tiled facades, medieval buildings and impressive views.
If you feel tired we can always stop for coffee and a pastry.

A Recent Review of this tour

Six of us booked a walking tour with Susana in the beautiful and interesting city of Lisbon. We thoroughly enjoyed her company as she took us through the important sites and historical events of the City. Her knowledge and enthusiasm impressed us. Since this was our first day in town she made recommendations for restaurants, shopping and entertainment and we greatly appreciated her her advice. It was a pleasure meeting her and spending an afternoon in her company. I highly recommend her!
