About the tour

Take advantage of our free tour to place you in the city and take a lot of tips and useful information to move around it like a true Lisbon. We will visit the most important monuments, streets, and squares in the central part of Lisbon. We will immerse ourselves in the more than 3,000 years of history from its Phoenician origins to the turbulent history of the 20th century; we will relive the greatest natural catastrophe in the history of Europe with the great earthquake of 1755 and the subsequent reconstruction revealing all the symbols of the first Masonic city in history. We will tell you the legends and stories behind each monument that go unnoticed by other visitors, such as the amusing anecdote of Pedro IV, the shocking story of the massacre of new Christians or the legend of the seven hills of Lisbon. We will approach the lisboetas through their customs, traditions or gastronomy and we will put ourselves in their shoes to understand the years lived during the longest dictatorship in Europe and its end with the emotional Carnation Revolution, to finish in front of the Opera with the life of the greatest poet that this city has given us, Fernando Pessoa.

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!

We had the tour on our first day in Lisbon and it was a great way to get a first taste of the city. The guide was very pleasant and knowledgeable. Keep in mind that Lisbon is not a small town and because this is a walking tour, it is only possible to go through some of the main attractions of it. By having the tour you are having a 'history lesson' on Lisbon, in a very pleasant way. We really enjoy it as we are always interested in the history of the place we are visiting, but keep this in mind while booking the tour.

Pasamos un rato muy agradable con Dani, que fue muy amable y nos enseñó la ciudad y los trucos para andar por ella. Mmmmm Además nos ayudó mucho al día siguiente cuando nos confundimos de tren. Muchas gracias por tu ayuda.
