Hello travelers! My name is Nuno Libório; I was born in the heart of Lisbon, Bairro Alto neighborhood. In no particular order, I am a tour guide, teacher, actor, storyteller, and aspiring writer. I found the profession of a tour guide to be very amusing. It perfectly encompasses all my interests and is an exciting opportunity to use my full abilities.

Tour description

Hi travelers!

The Codfish and the Wine, from a Monarchy to a Republic. Fascism and The Revolution of DemocracyALL in one TOUR!!!! and much more...

The tour I prepared is a time travel for you to meet with the characters and venture into the city highlights.  I will tell you the forbidden stories ripped off the books. As a personal quest, it is my honor to unveil the many mysteries which belong to the streets. These stories are an ode to life achievements, good and bad, and far from happy endings.

Nuno was great! We got a lot of information and, unfortunately, I retained only a little bit, but the overall experience was fun and there was a review at the end that helped us to put all the history together one more time. We were the only ones on the tour, and with the kid he accommodated us for a quick food stop when the kid was throwing tantrums when he got hungry. He was also trying to keep everyone engaged, which is not an easy fit to pull off. Overall, I would recommend this tour.

Nuno was amazing! His depth of local knowledge just flows... He took us to at least 5 neighbourhoods (lost count) and had some incredible stories everywhere we went. Our 2. 5 - 3 hour walk lasted another hour because we were all having a great time. Definitely, book your tour with Nuno. You won't regret it. We thoroughly enjoyed our time.
