Alfama & Mouraria Free Tour

Lisbon Old Town

Come for a stroll with Take Lisboa through the narrow streets of Lisbon Old Town. Our Alfama and Mouraria Free Tour covers three thousand years of contrasting history in almost 3 hours of amusing anecdotes and fascinating facts.  Take Lisboa free walking tour will take you through Phoenician ventures, Roman frameworks and Arabic heritage, to give you a more complete picture of all the things that make up Lisbon’s identity and our culture.

Forget about Tram 28, we are venturing ourselves inside the old city Lisbon, a labyrinth of streets and squares, where google maps don’t help and Fado is heard at every corner. Together we will discover the essence of Lisbon and its most ancient roots, the Mouraria neighborhood and the Alfama District, and be amazed at the contrasts and differences between these two rival neighborhoods.

We will begin our tour from Rossio and enter Mouraria at the Es...

WHAT IS A FREE TOUR?

Free Tour is a relatively recent concept and advocates the democratization of access to this type of touristic experience. We want to enable everyone to get to know our city regardless of their budget.

Many people question how can a tour be free? The tour is free because there is no prearranged price, each participant will define the amount they consider appropriate according to their level of satisfaction and personal budget.
Our guides receive no salary of any kind other than what they receive from the guests who decide to join our Lisbon Free Tours. As they only work for gratuities the trend is that Free Tours are significantly better than conventional paid tours. The guide will put all his energy, commitment, and knowledge into each tour. 

Now that you know the theoretical explanation of the concept it's time to join one of our Lisbon Free Tours and prove in practice that this is one of the best and richest ways to get to (really!) know a city.

The Free Tour lasts around 2h30.
