In this 3 hour private walking tour you will get to know why Lisbon, one of Europe's oldest cities, was so important and famous during its history, for such people like the Phoenicians, the Romans and the Moors.

Learn how Lisbon became important and Europe's main trading centre in the XV and XVI centuries, the Age of the Sea Discoveries.

Hear about the strongest earthquake ever in Europe and how it affected Lisbon in the XVIII century.

Feel the modern city; walk its streets; taste the sweet and salty specialities; meet the locals, and discover what makes the portuguese so welcoming and friendly!

We will visit the most iconic neighbourhoods of Lisbon: the bohemian Bairro Alto; the chic and romantic Chiado; the historic Downtown, and the moorish Alfama!

We had a wonderful tour of Lisbon with Francisco! He was very accommodating and made sure the tour was interesting and exciting for our toddler. We really appreciated hearing about the history and the culture of the city, something we would not have known much about if we had no gone on the tour! We had such a great time on the tour that we actually went back and re-traced our steps a few days later so we could see it all over again! I would recommend this walking tour to anyone visiting Lisbon! Thank you so much Francisco!

Francisco clearly loves his home city and sharing its history and culture. We thoroughly enjoyed our half day with him wandering the streets, hearing the stories and seeing the sights.

Francisco took us on a tour through the “center” of Lisbon. He showed us the Commerce square, Alfama and Mouraria. Francisco is very knowledgeable and friendly. We were impressed with his story telling skills and we learned about the history of Lisbon as well. We also got some tips on where to go and where to eat during the rest of our stay in Lisbon. We had a fantastic afternoon!

Francisco was incredibly patient with our family and accommodated us keeping the tour simple and fun. We have 3 and 5 year boys so we wanted to play in a local playground and ride the historical tram and he helped make that happen. He had purchased the tram tickets in advance we do didn't have to wait in any lines with the children. He also was super helpful with all of my questions regarding other travel in Portugal and locally.

This was our first walking tour of a city and we will do this more often! Francisco was a wonderful, attentive guide. He was extremely knowledgeable and indulged our desire to learn about the history of Lisbon and Portugal. I highly recommend Francisco for his personable, friendly disposition in addition to his wealth of knowledge and command of the English language!

Francisco was punctual, spoke good English and was extremely knowledgeable and an encyclopedia on the history of Portugal and Lisbon from 12 BC to present. The walk was somewhat challenging being there are so many steep hills in Lisbon. He was extremely patient and adjusted the pace of the tour to fit our ability. He didn't rush us at all even though our tour ran 30 minutes over the scheduled 3 hours. We highly recommend this tour and Francisco as a private guide.

We booked our tour with Francisco. He was an amazing guide! We spent three fabulous hours with him discovering many spots in Lisbon. He even stayed a little longer at the end and gave us so many thoughtful recommendations for our group. We would recommend Francisco to anyone wanting to learn about Lisbon in such a wonderful personal manner.
