What you'll do
Visit the most iconic sights like the Moorish São Jorge Castle, the Mosteiro dos Jerónimos and the Torre de Belém, explore neighbourhoods like bohemian Mouraria and historic Belém to discover hidden gems and stroll through historic streets, immersing yourself in the culture.
Indulge in the gourmet treats that Lisbon is famed for and taste local delicacies throughout the day; enjoy lunch at a local tasca, discover where the locals go to enjoy the freshest seafood or indulge in a long lunch of sangria and small plates of regional cheeses, cured meats and grilled fish, at hand picked places that suit your preferences, budget and dietary requirements.
As well as visiting the places you most want to see, stop by local spots and places of interest along the way that your host recommends to get an authentic insight into local life in Lisbon.
Your Local Host will also advise you on the best way to spend the following days of your trip, allowing you to discover other areas of Lisbon that you will love and revealing other hidden gems that they know you'll love.
What To Expect
We’ll be in touch within 24 hours after booking to find out more about your personality and interests so we can assign a like-minded local who can create a bespoke experience for you.
Your Local Host will communicate with you directly to suggest an itinerary and agree a meeting time and place. Your itinerary is flexible, so during the experience you can always change your mind about what you want to do.
Your Local Host may also suggest adjustments or new routes if they feel that there is something just around the corner that you may enjoy, or perhaps if the weather affects your itinerary.
Although you will see the main attractions in the area, your Local Host will also help you to discover the places, things and stories that you won’t find in a guidebook and that make the city unique.
How This Benefits You
With a local by your side, you’ll be able to go beyond the superficial and connect with Lisbon and its people, getting to know what truly makes the city unique.
Get relevant advice to help you save time and money during the rest of your trip; using local insight you’ll be able to get around, skip tourist pitfalls and experience life like a local.
See the main attractions with the benefit of local knowledge like the best times to avoid the crowds, but also explore off-the-beaten path areas where the locals really live.
Our Local Hosts can all speak English, but many also speak Portuguese, Spanish, Italian, French, German and Swedish so they can connect with you culturally as well as with your personality.

Must See Lisbon In A Day | LisbonReview by: James C
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.

6 hours with a local
Our host Anna Elise met our family of three husband, wife and adult daughter just near our Lisbon hotel, for a delightful walking tour of the city. We were first-time visitors to Lisbon, and enjoyed our easy-going host as we talked about architecture, what brought her to Portugal and what she loves about the city and people. Our local host was happy to go wherever we wanted, and contacted us in advance to discuss our interests. We walked to the Prada do Comercio and along the cobble stone streets of old Lisbon. We took the cable car, and visited the Castle Sao Jorge, then on to several churches and the cathedral. We stopped near the cathedral at a lovely bistro called Audrey's Cafe for lunch. Afterwards we walked the historic district of Alfama looking at the different shops are artisan's wares. We ended at the Panteao National, tired but feeling like we had seen and learned quite a lot. We highly recommend the experience!
