Tour description

Voted the best original walking tour in the world.
Certificate of Excellence 2018, 2019 and 2020. Covid 19 Clean and safe company. 7 different Free Walking Tours of Lisbon. Local guides with dozens of tips and advice.

The sound of Fado is much more than a tour, it is an experience. Here the guide is replaced by a fado singer who will take you on a journey through the different moments in the history of fado, but above all he will guide you through a musical style that needs 5 senses to be felt. We will ask you to close your eyes and listen with your heart.
"The question is to feel fado. Because fado is not sung, it is done. Fado is not understood or explained, it is felt"- Amália Rodrigues
Despite being classified as an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO, on this tour, you will listen to the fado of the Portuguese and listen to it too.
