From here, admire Liberdade Avenue, the Eden Theatre (one of the best examples of Portuguese Art Deco), and the 18th-century Foz Palace. Marvel at the intricate Neo-Manueline architecture of Rossio Central Station, which connects the city to Sintra through a 1.61-mile-long (2.6 km) tunnel and is considered to be one of the most important engineering works of Portugal from the 19th century.
Next, learn about the Carnation Revolution as you visit beautiful Carmo Square, the very place where Portugal’s old dictatorial regime fell in 1974 after 48 years and where the Carmelite's Carmo Convent is located. Then walk through the elegant Chiado neighborhood, with its old cafés, boutiques, theaters and bookstores. Spend some time in this aristocratic quarter, one of the most interesting pedestrian areas in Lisbon, before enjoying a short trip on one of Lisbon’s vintage trams (fare included).
When you get off the tram, wander through the small squares, twisting streets and blind alleys where the roofs almost touch each other of Alfama, a Moorish neighborhood and the oldest district in Lisbon. This is the birthplace of Fado, Portugal's own musical genre. Learn about this type of music as you pass the Fado Museum and some hidden Fado restaurants.
Then admire the beauty of Sé de Lisboa cathedral, the city’s oldest church. End your tour in Commerce Square (Praça do Comércio), one of Europe’s largest squares that was for centuries a reception hall for visitors arriving by sea.

The Guide 'Miguel' had a great command of the English language and his knowledge of Portuguese history was truly amazing. We strolled to many sites of interest getting a full explanation of each one. We stopped off for the infamous pastel de nata custart tart as well as a tram ride to Alfama Moorish district and finished off with cheese and wine. Excellent value for money, wouldnt hesitate to do something similar again. Miguel was also able to give us tips on how to get to other places we had earmarked for our city break. This was a great way to immediately get acquainted with Lisbon on what was a very short break for our small group from the UK

Our guide was Sofia who was very enthusiastic and really seemed to enjoy her work. We were a small group of 4 and the tour was well paced with plenty of stops for photo's.
Any one doing this tour will learn a lot more about Lisbon than reading a guide book.
