Description

Experience old Lisbon at sunset and a ‘fado’ (folk music) dinner show on this private 4-hour evening walking tour. With an expert guide, explore the Mouraria and Alfama districts, with their cobbled lanes and old bars where fado was born and still reigns supreme. Sample some ‘ginjinha’ cherry liqueur, ride a vintage tram, and admire sunset-washed city views from two viewpoints. Then, visit a traditional restaurant and enjoy a 3-course Portuguese dinner alongside rousing performances of fado’s famously soulful songs. Enjoy in-depth attention from your guide on this private tour.

Meet your guide near Restauradores Square (Praça dos Restauradores) for your private tour. As you walk, hear about Lisbon’s history and how the square commemorates Portugal’s independence from Spain in 1640.

Stroll down Gates Sant Antão street (Rua das Portas de Santo Antão), past where the city’s old gates, the Sant Antão gates, once stood, and see the Casa Alentejo, a one-time Moorish palace that now celebrates the culture of Portugal’s Alentejo region.

Delve into the Mouraira district and visit a tavern to try Lisbon’s ginjinha liqueur, and listen to some haunting fado. Then, ride a vintage tram to Our Lady of the Hills viewpoint (Miradouro da Nossa Senhora do Monte). Here, absorb the sunset views over the 25th of April Bridge (Ponte 25 de Abril) and São Jorge Castle (Castelo de São Jorge), and theGraça viewpoint (Miradouro da Graça), view the Church of São Vincente and its monastery, home to the tombs of some of Portugal’s kings.

Next, head deep into the Alfama neighbourhood, Lisbon’s oldest quarter, and another center of fado. This district was once the city’s Moorish heart, and consists of cobbled squares and ramshackle cottages. Hear the sounds of fado in the evening air, and head inside a traditional restaurant for dinner and a show.

Lose yourself in the mournful music that’s been Lisbon’s own since the mid-1800s and features on the UNESCO World’s Intangible Cultural Heritage list. Follow the soulful tunes and, as you listen, enjoy a delicious, 3-course Portuguese dinner with wine or water, and tea or coffee.

Your tour ends after the show, when you leave the restaurant. Either continue exploring, or get directions back to your hotel from your guide, either by foot, cab or via the nearby Metro stop.
