ABOUT US

WELCOME TO LISBON WALKER

Lisbon has steadily built up an image of one of the world’s most interesting cities to visit. Its stunning location and historic significance is generously complemented by remarkable aesthetics, making it stand out as one of the few capital cities still human in pace and in scale.

To discover Lisbon in the company of friendly and knowledgeable tour guides is the whole point of Lisbon Walker, overtaking the limitations of guidebooks to unveil the real personality of this unique location. All walking tours are in English, with the exception of Sunday afternoon walking tours, when we welcome the Portuguese “walkers”!

“I did my 1st walking tour with Lisbon  walker this morning. My guide Joanna Flora was very knowledgeable and very interesting. She knows her city’s history!!! She also pointed out many interesting facts that you cannot know if you do not visit with a guide. The tour lasted 3:30 hours. I would highly recommend this company to anyone wanting to learn about Lisbon.”
