About the tour

A journey around Alfama and Mouraria will make you feel like going back in time. From the Phoenicians to the Romans, from the Visigoths

to the Moors and the conquest of Lisbon by Afonso Henriques, all these civilizations left their influence around here.

These are the areas better preserved after the great earthquake in 1755 and they haven’t changed much throughtout time.

From the shores of the Tagus river up to Graça viewpoint, you will be able to feel the mix of cultures so unique to Lisbon.

The charming narrow streets, the famous “azulejos” on the walls, the clothes on the balconies, the iconic trams, the many steps up and down, the delicious local food, the friendly locals and the soul of the

portuguese culture, Fado.

From Praça do Comércio (Commerce Square), we’ll visit places like Sé Cathedral, the streets of Alfama, Portas do Sol viewpoint, São Jorge Castle, São Domingos Church, Graça district and viewpoint, Beco do Fado and many more.

What's the price?

A guruwalk is a pay-what-you want walking tour, which means, it's completely free to book and join the group, but the 'guru' expects to be rewarded once the tour ends. Some people give 5, some people give 50, you choose the price.

Reservations in advance are mandatory because if the 'guru' doesn't see any bookings one day, she will not show up at the meeting point. Or if she has too many 'walkers' that day, won't allow you to join without the reservation. Booking is completely free, fast and easy. Book your guruwalk now!

El tour fue muy interesante y la guía muy amable, simpática y atenta. Me gustó mucho su forma de explicar la historia del barrio y las anécdotas que nos contó. Además me pareció un detallazo que nos diera un papel con un montón de recomendaciones

The walk is wonderful. Our guide Petro has a good voice and he sang the local songs with poetic lyrics made this tour very cultural and spiritual fruitful. The local advice on food, restaurant, transportation and living is very pragmatic for us on the first day arrival. Highly recommend this tour!
