Very interesting tour. Our guide Jaime was excellent. He shared with us the history of the city, FADO, traditional food and much more. The walk was amazingly planned and showed us the beauty and charm of the Lisbon oldest parts and neighborhoods. The final dinner with the FADO music was breath taking.
