Full description
Start your Lisbon walking tour by joining a local guide in one of the city's most imposing squares, the Praça dos Restauradores. This famous landmark commemorates the restoration of Portugal’s independence back in 1640 and is an apt starting point for this tour through Lisbon’s musical and culinary heritage. Start off the evening with a tasting of Ginjinha, Lisbon’s trademark liqueur, made from sour cherries and sold as medicine since 1840. Enjoy this drink and listen to Fado music at a local tavern in the old district of Mouraria Next, travel deep into the soul of Lisbon while exploring the Alfama neighborhood. This is the oldest quarter in the city, dating back to the Moorish occupation of Lisbon. Explore Alfama’s small squares, rustic buildings and dark alleyways as you wander along the winding, cobblestone streets. Stop to breathe in the exciting atmosphere as the local taverns and music venues come to life for another evening of melodic tunes and gastronomic delights. Stop to reflect on the beauty of the River Tagus, then continue on to finish this Lisbon walking tour in an old Palace that serves up daily doses of delicious food and Fado music to enthusiastic audiences. Indulge in a traditional Portuguese dinner with wine while appreciating a performance of Fado from one of the most famous houses, a quintessential Lisbon experience that you won’t get on other Lisbon tours! What a fitting finale to this indulgent Lisbon walking tour extravaganza.

Pedro was excellent. We walked for over 2 hrs but you wouldn't know it. Went into neighborhoods we would've never found on our own. Experienced local Lisbon wine and the Fado was excellent. The singer was exceptional and it felt like we were part of the family. Highly recommend a must do!

Very enjoyable evening

Very enjoyable evening and very worthwhile. Note though that this is a walking tour and there are some steep hills to climb. Views are worth the effort, and the Fado restaurant is definitely the icing on the cake. Really good food and wine and great entertainment. Our guide was very knowledgeable and we learnt a lot on the tour. Very enjoyable evening overall. Fado entertainment is at the end of the walking, so you will not eat till 9pm, therefore you may need a snack late pm before starting the walking. As said it is well worth the wait. This is a one way tour and the tour finishes at the restaurant. Some of our group didn't realise this, so have some idea how to get back although our guide was very helpful to people who didn't realise. Definitely recommend.

Wonderful Evening!!!

The Fado & Dinner Tour was just wonderful. Tiago was such a great guide that despite the rains, we had such a great time. He is not only very knowledgeable but very interesting and entertaining. We enjoyed the night. I will recommend the tour with Tiago anytime. It’s a MUST if you are in Lisbon and experiencing Fado the first time.
