Hello there! My name is Rúben. In 2020, I brought to life an innovative project called Tagus Games with the aim of creating educational and disruptive board games. Today, one of our favorite creations, "Find the Differences," has been brilliantly reimagined into a free walking tour - all for those who wish to experience the charm of Lisbon in a truly unique way. I am a devoted fan of Lisbon and have a fervor for board games. Having worked in summer camps for many years, I have developed a knack for making learning fun and engaging. Now, I'm teaming up with an incredible group of guides to take you on an exciting adventure through the vibrant streets and intriguing history of Lisbon. If you're ready to explore Lisbon from a fresh perspective and love the thrill of a good game, then join us for a memorable journey. We can't wait to meet you!

    Miradouro das Portas do Sol

    In this interactive game tour, our walkers will have the chance to kick off their adventure with a captivating challenge at the statue of São Vicente. Armed with a deceptively edited image, they will need to spot the differences between the picture and the actual statue. But who was São Vicente, you ask? He is none other than Lisbon's very own patron saint. This revered figure has fascinating tales tied to his name and has had a profound impact on the city's history and culture.

    Miradouro de Santa Luzia

    This picturesque viewpoint offers breathtaking panoramas of Lisbon, including sweeping views of the Tagus River and the striking Alfama district - Lisbon's oldest neighborhood. But the views aren't all that Santa Luzia has in store. Adorning the walls of this beloved miradouro are intricate tile panels - 'azulejos' as they are locally known.

We booked the visit after flying from Canada and I hesitated doing it because I feared we would be tired. Although we indeed were, Catharina still was able to keep us engaged and entertained with the many games she brought during the tour. She informed us of many different areas during the tour and you can feel she loves this city. I would’ve gladly had her show us around other areas Thanks for making our first day memorable!
