"Incredible experience! It was so cool to see restaurants that we no way would have seen without a guide. The underground church restaurant was the coolest experience we had in the city and the custard tart was the most delicious I’ve ever eaten. Thank you so much to Sara for the amazing tour, we’ll certainly be back! "

Sara has been a fantastic guide, taking us to hidden and underground spots that we would have never found on our own, locals only spots. We loved strolling and admiring the most beautiful sights in the heart of Lisbon. Thank you so much!New

Lovely walk with Ricardo. Good food, good wine and beer and good conversation. Great way to get a foot in to the complex world of Portuguese food culture and history .

We had an amazing tour with Leonardo. He was so excited to be able to show us the history which we would not have discovered on our own and all the food was delicious.

Originally from Porto, living in Lisbon since 2016.
Favorite dish will have to be a good Duck Rice (Arroz de Pato)
Although Lisbon is beautiful inside and out always look for the open doors in the buildings, you might find some of the most amazing undiscovered monuments.

Hungarian native who fell in love with Portugal in 2006 and made it her home.
My favourite Portuguese dish would have to be grilled sea bass with an ocean view and a nice green wine.
If you are a coffee drinker always order a regular “café” and not a milky version to really appreciate this underrated delicacy!

Brazilian living in Lisbon for 6 years who fell in love with the city after a trip and never left.

When in Lisbon, don't miss Graça with its viewpoints and terraces and a sunset boat trip on the Tejo River

Born in "a garden planted by the sea" also known as Portugal.
What I love about Portuguese cuisine is the freshness of the ingredients which change every season. My favorite summer food is grilled sardines with salad.
The best way to learn about a country is through its people. Go to a farmers market, talk to strangers and experience the variety of local vegetables and fruits.

Born and raised in Portugal. From the mountain of Sintra right to your table!
My favorite thing to eat is rotisserie chicken. Simple but hard to beat.
The best advice I've ever been given for Lisbon is "Look for handwritten menus. Even better if they're written on a disposable paper towel''!
