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.
