What you can expect

Join me on this private tour - I would love to show you around the historical sights in Lisbon - I have a degree in history and would like to share my knowledge of this wonderful city with you.

I've been doing tours in Lisbon for a year now, and I offer several different tour options around the oldest and most interesting neighborhoods in this city.

The fists tour I can offer you will be a mix of local history and culture. The walking tour will take us through the narrow streets and alleys in the Alfama district, an old Moorish neighborhood.

Alfama is the oldest neighborhood of Lisbon, the place where the Romans founded their village - Olissippo - and where Muslins established their population at IX century.

Let's find out the foundations of the ancient city walls and see how this affected the architecture of medieval houses that still stand in Alfama

Next we will head to a spectacular viewpoint to look over Lisbon, including a stop at Portas do Sol or Miradouro da Graça. The tour will end at the gates of beautiful São Jorge’s Castle.

I can also offer different options for other tours that include more old neighborhoods of Lisbon (Chiado, Belém or other sites outskirt Lisbon).

Please feel free to contact me for a personalized offer to arrange what you would like me to include in your tour.

By the end of the tour - you will know more about this city than the locals!
