I went by myself and it was a really good experience. I meet people from all around the world and the tour was safe and the club at the end was amazing. My two guides were two girls and both of them were amazing !!

A wonderful experience that my partner and I thoroughly enjoyed. It's worth arriving a few minutes early for a good seat to take in the full atmosphere. Great artists - we'll be back.

Very good performance both from the singers and musicians. I enjoyed the show. Better setting to watch and hear a performance vs a bar/restaurant. Nice cosy venue.

Great time! A Fado concert for the whole family, guitar and vocal virtuosos.
