What you'll do

This amazing adventure will start at Praça do Comercio in Baixa-Chiado for you to have an introduction to our Portuguese History and some secret stories as well. After i will take you to my neighborhood Alfama with more than 2000 years of history with narrow streets with people doing barbecues and kids still playing football and unique architecture with an amazing Moorish and Jewish heritage.

It's literally a village on the inside of Lisbon and you will feel that vibe, considered the heart of Fado music in Portugal with Taverns everywhere where you can listen to music and drink like a local, I will take you to one for you to taste our most famous liquor Ginjinha to give enough fuel to go uphill!:)

Being on the top you will be amazed by our stunning viewpoints like Portas do Sol or Sta. Luzia. Moving after into the direction of Mouraria we will stop i the Castel neighborhood for you to relax and restore your energy with the best Custard tart in Lisbon 2019 at Santo Antonio Bakery.

After we will pass by one of my favorite views at Chão do Loureiro Viewpoint and finishing our walk exploring the streets of Mouraria with the roots of Fado Music, alternative restaurants, and bars.

Other things to note:
Bring comfortable clothes, shoes and good vibes. The meeting point is the central statue in the middle of Praça do Comércio facing Rua Agusta Arch.

This was our second experience with Igor - we did an online street tour during the pandemic, and when we finally came to Lisbon we wanted to do Igor's True Portuguese soul in person, and it was great! Lots of storytelling, tips and local recommendations!

Igor is the man. He takes you through the real Alfama and shows you what it’s like for the people who live there. Along the way you get to meet some wonderful people, as Igor greets his friends. There is also a few food and drink surprises along the way.

Igor was great! Really knows his history and showed a lesser explored area of Lisbon. He was really flexible and adapted the tour for the audience requests.
