Tour description

Cross the downtown of Lisbon, follow the old medieval walls, and enter Mouraria and Alfama, the oldest neighborhoods of the city that survived almost intact to the great earthquake of 1755, the birthplaces of Fado, where the true multicultural colors of Lisbon show up, ending up at some of the best sightseeing overlooks in Lisbon. On Tuesdays and Saturdays, we end near the famous flea market held on those days. :)

Learn the history and legends of the old town most representative neighborhoods, told by real local guides, getting a truly personal and insightful view on Lisbon, walking through the city's narrow alleys up and downhill, lost in time on a genuine "back to the past" tour.

This particular walk was ok, not outstanding. Much less Alfama than I would have hoped for. Tour guide's communication skills were not as efficient as I would have hoped, dragging certain subject matter out for longer than required. That said, his English skills were fine.

We immediately signed up for another LIVE HISTORY tour after our experience with Diogo. Although it was raining off and on it affect the excellence of this tour. Diogo was fun, VERY informative, and had such an excellent speaking voice that carried well. His English was perfect. We have been in Portugal for nearly one month and this was one of our best experiences (and we have had MANY wonderful experiences). Abragada & Mahalo from Hawai'i!
