Set-off for a magical evening from central Lisbon on your private sunset tour with Fado show and dinner. Start with a stroll through Restauradores Square (Praça dos Restauradores) and learn how this square honors Portugal’s freedom from Spain in 1640.

Then, walk along Gates Sant Antão street where the old Sant Antão gates once protected the city. Sneak a peek at Casa Alentejo, a former Moorish palace converted to restaurant that captures the essence of Portugal’s famous Alentejo region.

Next, discover the culturally diverse district of Mouraira. At a nearby bar, wet your whistle with a taste of Lisbon’s ginjinha sour cherry liqueur as you tune in to background Fado. After, pop onto a vintage tram and climb to one of the city’s best vantage points, Our Lady of the Hills (Miradouro da Nossa Senhora do Monte). Focus your eyes over the city and swivel your head from the 25th of April Bridge (Ponte 25 de Abril) across the Tagus River to the commanding São Jorge castle (Castelo de São Jorge). But wait don’t Instagram your photo yet, grab more stunning shots at the Graça viewpoint (Miradouro da Graça) as you admire the Church of São Vicente and its monastery, where rests graves of several Portuguese kings.

Then it’s onward to the oldest Lisbon quarter, Alfama. Renown as the birthplace of the Portuguese musical genre Fado, wind along Alfama’s narrow cobblestone streets and soak up the moorish history. As night sets in, arrive at a charming restaurant where the musical and delicious traditional food awaits.

Savor a delicious 3-course dinner and experience melancholic Portuguese Fado which is inscribed in the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage lists. Since the mid-1800s Fado has delivered soulful songs that are somber yet exciting. Cherish this powerful music as you enjoy your meal with wine or water, and coffee or tea.

Leave the restaurant as your tour ends. Then, continue to explore on your own or head back to your hotel via cab, on foot, or by metro. Ask you guide and they will give you directions.

I can't say enough good things about this tour. My wife and I are in our 60's and chose a private tour since we were concerned about inconveniencing a larger group while navigating the many hills and cobblestone streets of Lisbon. Our guide, Tiago, was great! He adjusted the itinerary to meet our physical needs and even arranged for an alternative meal at the restaurant when he learned that we weren't big seafood fans. Tiago has a PhD in Portuguese history and, as you might expect, there is nothing he doesnt know about the local history and culture. The restaurant he took us to was very nice and the music was excellent. After dinner Tiago made sure we found a taxi to get back to our hotel. My only regret is that I can't give our experience more than five stars in this review.

Dani did an amazing job taking us around Lisbon and giving us not only a sense of the city but also its history and the people who live there. She is obviously passionate about her city and her enthusiasm was infectious. We had an amazing walking tour and would absolutely recommend to anyone else.

This was a great tour that i highly recommend any traveler to Lisbon to take. a Fado show with a historical tour of the parts of Lisbon where Fado began is an amazing cultural experience. Dinner is included as well as a nice bottle of wine and some truly beautiful singing by very talented Portuguese women. We took our tour and show on our last night in Lisbon and it was a great conclusion to what was an amazing vacation.
