The Lisboa Card is a very useful tool to visit and move around the city. The means of transport (trams, metro and buses) work very well and it takes very little to get from one district to another. In addition, the card allows free admission to many museums, panoramic points and other tourist attractions and offers convenient discounts.

I would have liked to attend a fado club. However, my schedule and those of the clubs in Lisbon did not match up for the night i had available. Fafo in Chiado filled the gap very nicely for me. The theatre in conveniently located for the Lisbon Metro.

Silvia has been such an amazing guide. Every stop was detailed & all questions answered. I highly recommend her for your future tour in Lisbon!

A breathtaking show full of joy and spreading happiness, wonderful Fado traditional singing that melts the heart. Highly recommended

Very good performance overall. I recommend to anyone traveling to Portugal.
