What you’ll do

We know that a city is more than a place, it’s a feeling - and once you’ve spent the day exploring beautiful Lisbon with one of our local Lisbon hosts, you’ll feel just why the city is so magical.

You’ll immerse yourself in Lisboa culture by exploring several and strolling through the historic streets (but with all the hills involved, especially walking up to the castle, no judgment from us if you want to give your legs a break and hop on a vintage funicular).

See all that you want to see, with a twist - it’ll all be from your host’s authentic point of view. Visit iconic sights like São George Castle, or the Mosteiro dos Jerónimos - while you’re in the neighborhood, try the original Pastéis de Belém - and soak up the atmosphere, culture, and energy in the surrounding neighborhoods.

You could laze your afternoon away sipping sangria and nibbling petiscos in a hidden terrace, explore a well worn, but well-loved neighborhood where you can experience the real culture of Lisbon or try to squeeze in as much sightseeing as possible.

Your day, your way.

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!

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.

Lisbon: book a local host-4vhours

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.

Great Fun!

Since I was new to Lisbon, I needed a host who was a familiar with the city and the tour routes. Ann had the knowledge and she often introduced me to places via shortcuts and alternate routes. She is very positive, attractive and fun. She is also a very good walker. I even called her "a military style guide." :) In the 6 hours experience I was exhausted from time to time but she was always ready to go more. For there are many hills in the territory of Lisbon, I thought traveller can be easily tired of walking. She is from Italy as written in her profile, but her English was fluent and correct and fun. ;) She is sociable and attractive. She will guide you to your style.
