Discover the best Lisbon has to offer …

To truly appreciate the beauty of the Lisbon culture you need to wander around, experience daily life on its backstreets and learn how to best visit the “must-sees” in the city. This tour highlights the best Lisbon has to offer – fabulous food, soulful Fado music and tuk-tuks that will take you high and low through Alfama’s historic streets!

Alfama is one of Lisbon’s oldest and most atmospheric districts, with steep streets that wind up to a 17th century castle. The area offers stunning views over the city and is quickly becoming a creative hub. If you don’t love its quirky craft shops, you’re sure to fall for the food, people or Fado music that drifts out of some of the neighbourhood’s longest-running restaurants. 

We take you on a whirlwind ride around Alfama and tick these three experiences off your ‘must-do’ list at the same time! Your Eating Europe guide as well as your tuk tuk driver will tell you fascinating stories about the city and point out important sights en route to our favourite hidden gems. 

Meet the owner of a small live music bar and taste his unique take on hummus that only the locals know about! Try homemade ginjinha – a tasty cherry liquor that the older residents swear by. And sit down for a traditional 3-course family meal and live Fado music in an authentic Portuguese restaurant tucked away in the Alfama hills. 

Our Best of Lisbon 3-in-1 Tour gives you history, culture, live music and delicious cuisine all in one – with magnificent photo stops in-between. And you’ll even save by experiencing each on our newest Lisbon tour!

    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 .

    - Silke (TripAdvisor Review)

    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.
