About the tour

Take the most out of your day in the center of Lisbon with the earliest free walking tour available. Get to know the main neighborhoods of the historic Lisbon (Bairro Alto, Chiado, Downtown and Alfama), the heritage and their stories, at the comfort of the mild temperatures of the morning.

Our tour it’s very well paced and our local guides will tell you all about the fascinating stories behind the history of Lisbon and Portugal, the portuguese culture and their people.

You will know how the city developed since 3000 years ago until our days and how you can notice the different influences of the Romans, the Barbarians, the Moors and several other civilizations throughout the streets of the Portuguese capital.

Starting early in the morning will allow you to have more time to explore and more time for the Guide to answer your questions.

We will show you a lot of hidden gems of the old town as well as the most significant monuments of the city center like the Church of São Domingos, the ruins of Carmo Convent, Rossio Station, Santa Justa Elevator and more, as well as the main squares of the city center like Praça Luís de Camões, Largo do Carmo, Rossio, Praça do Comércio and Portas do Sol.

You'll get to know the history of the most important figures that influenced the city (writers, performers, architects, kings, knights and much more)and stories from the most important chapters of the history of Lisbon (earthquake of 1755, batalha de Aljubarrota, the revolution for democracy aka Carnation Revolution, etc).

Free Tour - You take a tour with the best local guides in town and by the end you determine what the tour was worth (i.e.: 10€, 15€, 20€, …)

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!

My husband and I had a great tour with Andrea. She was extremely passionate about Portugal and very knowledgeable about all the areas she took us too. We thoroughly enjoyed all the hours spent on the tour despite the heat! I recommend anyone thinking about it to go on this early start tour as the group is smaller too and you will really enjoy the cooler morning air and there's plenty of shade too. Andrea also gave us many tips to see Lisbon more efficiently which we were very grateful for. Thank you Andrea! Alka and Bijou
