Full description

Explore Lisbon's Alfama district and experience the UNESCO-listed musical genre of fado. Savor a traditional Portuguese dinner, then head to a fado show.

Start your Fado tour of Lisbon with a typical dinner in the Alfama district. Find out about the local habits and cuisine in the city's oldest district, where fado was born in the early 19th century. Then, wander down the alleys of the old part of town on a short walking tour of Alfama. End at a traditional Fado house and listen to the mournful melodies of Fado, a quintessentially Portuguese genre produced by a Portuguese guitar and characterized by heartfelt lyrics.

Lose yourself in the atmosphere and mood of the music. Fado was inscribed by UNESCO on the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity in November 2011.

    It was a good experience rodrigo was really good in handling all the situations happening trough the night... We enjoyed our evening and learned something new about this amazing culture... If we could control the weather that's the only thing we would change. Thanks a lot to Rodrigo very patient and professional.

    A big thank you to Rodriguo for this night course, a wonderful discovery of Moureria and Alfama (sometimes accompanied by a little French translation). Dinner and Fado in the middle of the terrace installed on a square in the really typical Top street, a very beautiful and good evening. Patricia & Claude (France)

    The tour was great! Rodrigo did an excellent job sharing the history as we walked and stopped to listen to the stories. There were some beautiful views of the city at night. We ended at dinner with alternating Fado singers, who both sang beautifully. The meal was really nice. A tour, scenic views, dinner and singing for this price seems like a great value to me. Thank you, Rodrigo for a great evening!
