Olá! Thank you very much for visiting my dear Lisboa and booking with me ❤️ This tour was created by my heart to give you the very core of Lisboa. I was born in the heart of Lisboa, São Sebastião da Pedreira. I am a living example of a tradicional Portuguese guy, and I have also travelled to many countries before learning about new cultures while representing Portugal in martial arts. Lisboa is not just about FOOD and FADO. Lisboa is an amazing city that grew out of incredible influences from ancient to modern time! If you are looking for a tour with a local prespective, a blend between history, hidden gems/secrets, fun facts, tourist traps and much more THIS IS THE ONE! I have been working as a tour guide for the past 5 years and I look forward in showing you my city and country! Lets have some fun, explore this beautiful city together and the 3000 years of history behind it!

If you love history and you are new to Lisbon you will enjoy this walking tour. So many interesting facts and stories. Antonio brings them all to life. He also gave us valuable tips about tourist traps and where to have a delicious lunch at a local price. Thank you, Antonio!

Antonio was a wonderful guide and super and informative. It was a great introduction to Lisbon as we had just arrived. He gave us lots of interesting tidbits of information about the history of Portugal, Lisbon, the beautiful tiles, Fado etc. It was a fun couple of hours.

We count ourselves very lucky to have had António as our tour guide. A really enjoyable morning was spent weaving through the streets of Lisbon, learning about the history of the city as well as hearing fun facts and learning some useful insider tips which made us feel like locals! António had great tips about Lisbon and beyond and even shared personalised Google maps of the city which were useful long after the tour. A great way to experience Lisbon!

The tour exceeded my expectations! I've been to many walking tours before, and I can say that Antonio was the best guide I've ever met without a doubt. He was professional, telling us a lot of stories about the city, a lot of historical facts (sometimes maybe too many, I found my mind whirling from time to time, but it was truly interesting!), giving a lot of local tips (how to avoid some of the stairs, for example). Polite also. After the walk, he even sent us a lot of bookmarks. Thank you very much, Antonio. I'll recommend this tour to everybody!

Antonio was excellent! Not only did he conduct a great tour but he offered insider’s tips on places to visit and to eat - and the easiest way to navigate Lisbon. He was very enthusiastic and friendly and we truly enjoyed our time with him!
