Tour description

The Moorish Quarter Tour: The Fado, the colors, the food and the tiles of this neighborhood will seduce you, making it really hard not to fall in love with Lisbon.
On this tour we will explore one of the best kept secrets of Lisbon, that also happens to be the most diverse place in all Portugal, having a total of 52 nationalities in one single district. That place is the Moorish Quarter. A tour that takes you to the heart and soul of Arabic influence in Lisbon since the VIII century until today.
The not so touristic spots you don't want to miss.
Join us! Small groups, less crowds and a more authentic experience.

In two hours you get a plenty of information both about history of the country and about its contemporary life. It was a pleasure to meet Dinis and walk trough streets of picturesque Mouraria. Thank you!

Dinis was a FANTASTIC guide. He was so enthusiastic and friendly right from the outset. We took our two 14yo teenagers and they said it was the best tour they had been on (and we’ve done a few now!). Dinis has an encyclopaedic memory of history and was able to entertain and fascinate us for the entire time. Highly recommend this tour.
