What you’ll do

Forget dashing across the city (no one likes to rush here), you’ll lazily eat and drink your way around Lisbon with one of our local Lisbon hosts, which in our eyes is the best way to explore.

In the dreamy, hillside neighborhoods of Mouraria and Alfama, you’ll experience Lisbon life how it should be lived - that is to say full of long lunches of grilled seafood, endless plates of Portuguese petiscos, stopping by tascas where you can grab the house specialty, and timing a visit to a bakery at just the right glorious moment when Pastéis de nata emerge from the oven.

Try freshly grilled octopus, regional sheep’s milk cheeses, specialty grilled sardines, pastéis de bacalhau, and a surprising dish or two from a restaurant serving authentic Angolan cuisine - we bet you weren’t expecting that!

But as a former colony of Portugal, the flavors of West Africa are sprinkled throughout the city if you know where to look.

There’s nothing better than discovering a new culture through its food, and we’re sure you’ll agree that everything tastes better in the sunshine.

Lisbon City Tour

We had a really enjoyable afternoon with Gabriele. She showed us some fascinating parts of Lisbon and gave us some great tips for where to eat and what to see for the rest of our trip.

Brilliant organisation and a perfect guide!

Luis was a great guide for our booked 6 hours trip! He gave detailed information, recommended what is worth to see and what is better to leave (due to Eastern it was very crowded.). We had a very interesting day with him! Thanks Luis!

Fred picked us up right on time and spent a leisurely and enjoyable sharing his favorite spots with us He took our pre-tour suggestions into consideration and was very knowledgeable. He even introduced us to some of his favorite tapas. A perfect tour to get your bearings and receive suggestions for our independent sightseeing.
