OUTSTANDING!!! Tour was deferred to Today at my request as it was torrential rain on Friday. No problem at all. Rita was our guide and she was FANTASTIC! Intelligent with a very personal touch and knew all the characters in Alfama. Not only is she gorgeous she has an incredible breadth of knowledge.

This walking tour is a must do for those visitors who wish to experience the historical aspects of Lisbon. Jaimie, our tour guide, was informative, charming, articulate and welcomed questions about his wonderful city. The tour takes you through many narrow streets filled with historical intrigue which was brought to life by Jaimie as he talked about and introduced us to some of the Alfama residents. We passed by many restaurants where Fado is performed on a nightly basis. The wind and the up, up, uphill climb made it difficult for some participants. Comfortable walking shoes and the ability to do the hills is advisable. We had an awesome day and learned so much about the Alfama district past and present.

Traveling a lot and being used to default zombie guides I really enjoyed the personal take on this walking tour. Sofia brought her personal experience and knowledge to the walk and I appreciate her letting us try her local aquantencies. For the ones of you that like beautiful stories, a walk and an even amount of historic curiosities -this is it.
