About the Tour

Our Ancient Districts Free Walking Tour was created to offer you the most authentic Lisbon. Nothing feels more like Lisbon than the districts of Alfama, Mouraria and Castle. Narrow street by narrow street, balcony by balcony, we will reveal to you the city that Phoenicians, Romans, Visigoths, Arabs and Portuguese worshiped like no other. This is Lisbon, the Pleasant Haven, the joy of Caesar, the City of Light and no other city pays tribute to this multicultural historical heritage like the old districts of the city. This walk is perfect to feel the vibe of the city and we will have many tips and recommendations to share. An almost personal tour to celebrate Lisbon. We will visit the 3 districts of Mouraria, Castle of São Jorge and Alfama and talk about the Roman heritage, the Moorish legacy and how the city was conquered by Afonso the first king. We will have the privilege to enjoy some of Lisbon’s most extraordinary viewpoints like Chão do Loureiro, Beco do Recolhimento or Santa Luzia. Around the walls of the castle we will talk about ravens, the Portuguese sidewalk, sardines and the beautiful omnipresent azulejos (tiles). Join us and discover the most charismatic city in the world.

We did the Alfama tour with Gabriel - such a great tour and one of the highlights of our Lisbon trip. We had booked the same tour with another company, but they canceled about an hour and a half before the tour started. I was able to quickly book the Alfama tour with Take Free Tours through the GuruWalk app and I'm so glad I did. Gabriel really loves Alfama (and the Grandmas). Definitely would recommend!
