Hi! I am Andoni, born in Bizkaia and resident in Lisbon for more than two years and a tourist guide for seven years. I have worked in Madrid, Dublin and Lisbon and have guided around 40,000 people in all these years. For me, guiding is more than a job, it's my passion! I graduated in Geography and specialized through a master's degree in Urban Planning, and I have also studied History and Tourism. I love literature, architecture, gastronomy, history and travel. I am a lover of Lisbon and Portugal, something that you will discover from minute one on my tour.

About the tour

In this tour we will know the most emblematic points of the center of Lisbon in approximately two hours. Without wasting time and without absurd stops. From Alfama to Chiado through la Baixa and Rossio. We will see everything in the historic center.

Leaving from the emblematic neighborhood of Alfama, the oldest neighborhood in the city, we will know the secrets and history of the origins of Lisbon and we will walk towards one of the most emblematic buildings of the city, the Cathedral of Santa Maria and then know the most emblematic square, the Commerce Square. Then we will walk through the most central neighborhood, the Baixa Pombalina until we reach Rossio and head the final stretch to the most bohemian neighborhood, Chiado.

The idea is to make a good screenshot about the history of Lisbon and Portugal knowing those places that you should never miss and knowing the most emblematic moments of Portuguese history such as the origins of Lisbon and Portugal, the era of discoveries, the earthquake of 1755, the Carnation Revolution and the current Portugal.

And of course many tips, tricks and recommendations to make your trip an unforgettable experience such as where to eat well, what else to visit in the city or how to make those slopes of Lisbon a bit comfortable.

We will visit all the most emblematic points of the center:

- Alfama and the origins of Lisbon

- Cathedral of Santa Maria Mayor

- Roman heritage in Lisbon

- Casa dos Bicos, José Saramago

- The Manuelino and the discoveries

- Commerce Square and its impressive Arch

El tour fue genial! Andoni fue puntual, muy agradable y recorrimos las calles de Lisboa incluso pasando por un eje cronológico que ayudó a entender mejor todo aquello que nos iba transmitiendo. Se nota que tiene experiencia, pues nos dio truquillos para pasar mejor la estancia aquí y para ahorrarnos alguna que otra Muy recomendable!
