About the tour

Portugal was the first global empire in the world, and everything

started in this lovely district called Belém. Vessels left its harbors to

navigate through the unknown, to cross the dangerous of the oceans and discover new land, building churches, forts and cities on two third of the world and making Portugal one of the richest empires in the world.

Belém is considered to be one of the most beautiful places in the city, with its many historical buildings and famous Unesco heritage sites, like the Jeronimos Monastery and the Tower of Belém.

Those two sites would be enough to convince anybody to visit it, but

add the incredible Monument to the Discoveries, the impressive

Presidential Palace, the modern Maat (Museum of Art, architecture

and Technology), the compass rose and the delicious and famous "pastéis de nata", we’re sure you will have your heart stolen and find really hard to forget this place.

What's the price?

A guruwalk is a pay-what-you want walking tour, which means, it's completely free to book and join the group, but the 'guru' expects to be rewarded once the tour ends. Some people give 5, some people give 50, you choose the price.

Reservations in advance are mandatory because if the 'guru' doesn't see any bookings one day, she will not show up at the meeting point. Or if she has too many 'walkers' that day, won't allow you to join without the reservation. Booking is completely free, fast and easy. Book your guruwalk now!

Very good tour. José our guide was very friendly, clear and informative. He described the history of each landmark and chain of events, It gave us a great picture and understanding of what took place in Belem. . Walked at a comfortable pace making sure we were ok, and letting us know we can ask questions, at any time. Yes I recommend going.
