Itinerary:

Start your Lisbon walking tour by joining a local guide in one of the city's most imposing squares, the Praça dos Restauradores. This famous landmark commemorates the restoration of Portugal’s independence back in 1640 and is an apt starting point for this tour through Lisbon’s musical and culinary heritage.

 

To kick this Lisbon evening tour off with even more of a bang, you'll have the chance to try a sip of Ginjinha, Lisbon’s trademark liqueur, made from sour cherries and sold as medicine since 1840. For this we'll be in the old district of Mouraria, listening to Fado music in a local tavern. Next, step back in time and enjoy a short ride on the vintage Tram 28 – a local transport legend. Take in sweeping views and stop for a break to admire the sunset over this intoxicating city from the viewpoints of the Castle Hills, some of the city’s best-kept secrets.

 

Next, travel deep into the soul of Lisbon while exploring the Alfama neighborhood. This is the oldest quarter in the city, dating back to the Moorish occupation of Lisbon. Explore Alfama’s small squares, rustic buildings and dark alleyways as you wander along the winding, cobblestone streets. Stop to breathe in the exciting atmosphere as the local taverns and music venues come to life for another evening of melodic tunes and gastronomic delights.

 

Stop to reflect on the beauty of the River Tagus then continue on to finish this Lisbon walking tour in an old Palace that serves up daily doses of delicious food and Fado music to enthusiastic audiences.

 

Sample traditional Portuguese tapas and wine while appreciating a performance of Fado from one of the most famous houses, a quintessential Lisbon experience that you won’t get on other Lisbon tours! What a fitting finale to this indulgent Lisbon walking tour extravaganza.

Definitely loved this tour! It was a taste of Lisbon that I hadn't seen on my own. The guide was very knowledgable about all the history and cultural tidbits so relevant to the overall city. The Fado experience was memorable! One of the highlights of my Lisbon experience.

Good tour except some of the walking from meeting point to some of the sites seemed aimless.

Great tour - probably my highlight of this trip, and a perfect way to navigate a very confusing and unfamiliar terrain.

We saw parts of Lisbon we would never have found on our own. Excellent.

My seventeen year old daughter and I took two different Urban Adventures tours on our visit to Lisbon. The first was the Experience Walk with Carlos. The tour was amazing. We visited many districts of the city and experienced the most amazing views. The tastings were all wonderful. Carlos has an excellent knowledge of the history of the city and the pride he showed for his city was apparent. We enjoyed the ferry ride and the seafood and green wine. We were very tired and very happy at the end of the tour.
We also took the Sunset Fado Tour. It was equally amazing. Our guide Augusto was really funny and nice and worked hard to ensure we all had a good time. The beer at sunset was very relaxing, the views were terrific. The Fado was excellent and included red wine and some nice snacks. We especially enjoyed the walk throught the Alfama district to get to the Fado location.
We would definitely do both tours again.

Our tour guide was very fun and down to earth. It made it a very intimate and fun experience. I did not feel weird about asking questions or want to know more. She was very knowledgable and laid back with us. Made us feel more like we were touring with a friend as opposed to someone who was up tight and robotic.

J'aurais préféré connaître l'heure et le lieu de rendez-vous lors de la réservation plutôt que de téléphoner la veille (problème de la langue). A part ce problème d'organisation de la réservation, l'accueil et la prestation étaient très très bien.
