Live History is a 100% Portuguese registered trademark and a licensed company by the tourism bureau of Portugal. Learn the history and legends of the old town most representative neighborhoods, told by real local guides (sometimes impersonating Portuguese historical figures), 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" entertaining and informal guided tour where history, stories, and fun facts combine together. :) For the best tours in Lisbon, look for our white umbrellas at Praça Dom Pedro IV, also known as Rossio. ;) Live History - Live Lisbon

About the Tour

Fado is the traditional way of singing and playing in Lisbon. Considered world heritage, it was born in the old neighborhoods of the city. Enter Mouraria, the old neighborhood of the Moors, birthplace of Fado, where the true multicultural colors of Lisbon show up, and on this tour, you will have a true experience of Fado.

You will be taken on a journey, through Lisbon's musical tradition and history, by a local professional singer who has learned the way it has been done for generations - from the old generation to the new - and who will sing essential themes of Portuguese culture just for you in a very exclusive performance.

This very unique singing guide will share with you the history of this art and particular details about local performers who have contributed to the development of this most amazing kind of music. Then, in the small typical squares of the neighborhood, we will all listen to her Fado performances finishing up with some tastings at Mouraria's School of Fado, in a sublime experience that stimulates all your senses, from the ears to the tastebuds.

The tour includes the tasting of Portuguese traditional chouriço and Ginjinha (cherry liqueur).
