    I enjoyed Rodrigo and the walking tour to Alfama. We went to several great locations and finally we made it to the Fado & dinner. The Fado was great, the ladies were amazing, to short, so I was really upset about that. I didn’t like the food at the Restaurante Sao Rafael. It was terrible.

    The tour was really nice - the guide is very friendly open minded and knowledgeable - tells a history about Fado, parts of the town and Portugal in general. After the tour, we had a traditional dinner with Fado music and everything was so authentic, calm and cute. Wonderful experience!

    The tour was wonderful, a tour of the historical district of fado with the explanations of the expert guide, stopping at viewpoints from which to contemplate spectacular views of Lisbon and ending at the restaurant where the golden cod and fado filled my body And the soul. Many thanks to Rodrigo, our local guide, who made the experience unforgettable.
