Our first experience of a private walking tour could not have been better. The warmth and knowledge of our tour guide, Elsa, was exceptional. Her knowledge and enthusiasm for this wonderful city was infectious. In the space of a few hours we were treated to an engaging history lesson, secret gems that we would never have discovered without a guide.... More

Alex was our tour guide and she was delightful. Learned so much from her. Saw things that I'm sure we would have missed had we tried to learn about the city on our own. Reading some of these reviews, I wish we had done the tapas and wine tour with her! Next time!!!

Elsa was a terrific guide. We were two couples and had booked her for half a day. Having done this kind of thing before we knew to ask for the non "touristy" version of the tour. And she delivered. The depth of her knowledge and command of English were exceptional. Every stop, every alley, every building came with a trove... More

We booked this tour based on reviews by others, and couldn't have been more pleased. Sophia met us, and showed us the city and its many subtle treasures for about four hours one Sunday afternoon. I am sure we saw and experienced many things that we surely would have missed in a large group tour or trying to take care... More

The four of us (2 couples) spent a lovely afternoon / evening with Alex on the Lisbon walking / tapas and wine tour. On the walking part, which was around 2 hours long, Alex took us through the central districts of Lisbon and showed us sites we would never have found on our own. She was engaging, informative and a... More

Margarita was a great guide for us in Lisbon....she was quite knowledgable about the city and its history and she was genuinely concerned about us because one of us had been ill. Not only did we receive a wonderful city overview and it's various areas, but we also received very good suggestions on places to eat, shop and see. Plus,... More

We had Rita with us for two tours. The first was the 3 hour gastronomy tour which was much more than a gastronomy tour. We arrived in Lisbon the day before and explored a little on our own and while we covered some of the same ground with Rita we saw it with different eyes after Rita explained the history... More

My wife and I took a city walking tour and a foodie tour with Alex and it was fantastic. Alex is extremely knowledgeable of her city and has a great personality. She is very flexible as to how we wanted to visit the city and took us to some very interesting places. I would not hesitate to take a tour... More

We had a wonderful family vacation to Portugal in August. Everything was perfect about our time in Lisbon except for our tour with Marta. My family and I thoroughly researched different walking tours and selected this one based on the positive reviews & price. Unfortunately, Marta was quite frankly very rude & unpleasant. She answered questions from family members on... More

Our team has received your review with great sadness. We have worked for 4 years with only 5 and 4 stars in all the review platforms. This is the first negative review that we have, after hundreds of reviews and thousands of happy customers from all over the world. Marta has several of those amazing reviews. So it is naturally...

We made this trip on our first day in Lisbon. Elsa, our tourguide, took us on a "private walking tour" through the heart and different quaters of Lisbon. That way we discovered things we never would have discovered neither on our on nor with a "classic" group tour. In her excellent English she gave us in a very informative and... More

Staying in Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores

Neighbourhood Profile
Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores
A pending candidate to become a World Heritage Site, Lisbon's downtown (the "Baixa Pombalina", or simply "Baixa") is a perfect example of anti-earthquake construction, having been rebuilt following the 1755 earthquake by the famous Marquês de Pombal (hence its name). Its offer is vast: restaurants and cafes in Rossio and Restauradores, outlets and shops in the Áurea, Augusta, Prata and other famous streets, the imponent Praça do Comércio and its Arch, the luxury shops along the Avenida da Liberdade, this is the beating heart of the city center. The Baixa also grants easy access to trains leading to Sintra, the trams that go around the Castle hill, old neighborhoods or even take you to Belém, and Lisbon's traditional restaurants and cafes. Considering a visit to the Fashion and Design Museum (free entrance) and don't forget to try the famous liquor, "ginjinha"!
