Our Free Tour in Lisbon will show you our city through the eyes of a local enthusiastic guide.  With this tour we'll visit Alfama, which is the second oldest neighbourhood in Europe. It sits in one of Lisbon hills (the city is known for its 7 hills), with the castle sitting on top with a privileged view of the city and the Tagus river.

There is no better place to feel the old city vibe than in Alfama. Part of its charm is actually its apparent degradation, intricate streets and the sound of fado music in every corner. Here, you will not be amazed with magnificent monuments. Instead, you will be delighted with the simplicity and the genuinity of the people and the spectacular view points.

With our Free Tour in Lisbon, you will get to know Alfama, and the surrounding neighbourhoods, as one of our friends visiting. We will tell you its secrets and legends, the reason why there’s so many tiles and why do the streets form a kind of labyrinth. But don’t worry, you will only get lost if you want to!

About the organiser

Organised by
Wild Walkers Tours

We’re Wild Walkers Tours and we love to show Lisbon around, to all who wish to have an unconventional tour around our amazing city.

Back in 2011, we started offering tours in Lisbon as a small and young team. We wanted backpackers to experience Lisbon as we knew it, at a reasonable price. Away from the historic, cultural and crowded touristic places, and into the real vibe of city living. So we did tip based tours, being sure our guests would love and support us! Fast forward almost 10 years, we already welcomed thousands of travelers from all over the world!

We now offer several experiences in and around the city, to anyone who wants to live the real Lisbon. Appreciate our tasty cuisine, listen to our beautiful Fado music or have a crazy night out on one of our famous PubCrawls.

All this with our local and friendly guides, who will show you around as if you were a friend visiting
