Then, wander down the alleys of the old part of town on a short walking tour of Alfama. End at a traditional Fado house and listen to the mournful melodies of Fado. Lose yourself in the atmosphere and mood of the music. The quintessentially Portuguese genre is produced with a Portuguese guitar and characterized by heartfelt lyrics. Fado was inscribed by UNESCO on the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity in November 2011.
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.

We had a fantastic time on this tour! Our guide, Maria, was fantastic and so informative. We really appreciated how small the group was (only 8 of us), which allowed for everyone to get to know one another, ask a ton of questions and do what we were all interested in. I would absolutely recommend anyone this tour if they are interested in seeing two amazing sites and picking up a ton of info as they go. The only thing I would tell people in advance is definitely plan for this tour to go a little over. We learned quickly the Portuguese people don't really stick to tight timetables and it's important to be flexible and go with the flow. If you can do that, you'll have an amazing time. So just don't make dinner reservations for right after the tour - you probably won't make them. But the info you'll pick up instead will make this extra time soooo worth it!!!!
Enjoy your 3-hour e-bike tour through Lisbon! You will leave from near to Praça do Comércio, where you will be told how to operate the e-bikes.

Ride to Adamastor and São pedro Alcantara where you can have an impressive view of the greatest points of Lisbon. You will be amazed by the fantastic sights of Lisbon. Along the way you will have the opportunity to taste a ginginha, a typical Portuguese liqueur.
Amazing experience with our guide Ivo! :) We enjoyed it 200%. warning for e-bike though, if you are short you might have some difficulty to stop. Also, the roads in Lisbon are really not bike-friendly. If you are not comfortable with the bike, do a tuk-tuk tour. tuk-tuk is super fun too. E-bike doesn't need much strength to ride around. If you are a bike-friendly person you will definitely enjoy it.

The group was small (just myself and another person). The guide had a lot of information to share and was very passionate about his city. The tour was scheduled for only two hours but the guide was not mindful of the time and went for three hours longer. This was an issue for many reason and I politely asked many times if we were almost at the end.

The guide was very knowledgeable. He was giving us a lot of history and information. The Fado was amazing, both singers had such great voice and the music was also very good. The food was ok but you do not go there for the food rather the Fado experience. The only warning is check the address of the meeting point, it might not be accurate.
The tour was great with great tourguide Mario who knows history and surroundings very well - actually no question w/o answers... places are amazing and scenic...
