Private and Small Group Guided Tours

Lisbon, which has proven to be remarkably resilient, is emerging as one of the cultural capitals of Europe.
Arguably the oldest city in Western Europe, Lisbon was settled by Phoenician traders as far back as the 2nd century BC and was ruled by the Moors in the 10th and 11th centuries—conquerors whose influence can still be traced through architecture and design there today. More recently, Lisbon has weathered both physical and political upheaval, including a major earthquake in 1755 that razed much of the city and Salazar's totalitarian regime, which stifled Portugal for much of the 20th century. But the city keeps bouncing back, and its celebrated culinary traditions, Fado music and culture, and magnificent tiled art facades speak to its capacity for endless renewal. Discover the allure of Lisbon with Context's private and small group guided tours.

Lisbon Private and Guided Tours

First-time visitors will want to take a look at our Lisbon City Tour, which explores the neighborhoods of Baixa, Bairro Alto, and Chiado with a trained historian, providing a thorough 2.5-hour introduction to charming and historic quarters like Praça do Comércio and São Roque Church, as well as some lesser-frequented spots. This is the best way for visitors to get their bearings in the city, as well as develop the kind of fundamental understanding of the history and built environment that will enrich the remainder of their trip. Or, additionally, we suggest our Lisbon Old Town Walking Tour, a stroll through the Alfama neighborhood with a local architect, journalist, or other expert, taking in one of the few sections of the city not leveled by the earthquake of 1755—and including smashing views over the city. Don’t know what to do in Lisbon? We highly recommend our Belém Tour, which focuses on Portugal’s role in the Age of Discovery and visits the Jerónimos Monastery, Tower of Belém, and, naturally, the Pastéis de Belém bakery for Lisbon's signature treat. Also very popular is our Sintra Day Trip from Lisbon, a half-day excursion to this mesmerizingly beautiful and historic town that Lord Byron once referred to as “glorious Eden.” This tour explores palaces, villas, and the many mysteries that reside in this historic enclave. Anxious about your trip? Book our Welcome to Lisbon Tour and we’ll meet you in Lisbon when you arrive for a 2-hour orientation chat and mini-tour.

Ian really brought the history of Lisbon home. My favorite part was standing on the square while Ian told the story of how the Carnation Revolution overthrew the authoritarian Estado Novo regime. It's one thing to stand in a historic place, it's quite another to be able to imagine what it must have been like on a key moment in history.
Jose is an expert on all things Portugal!
Francisco was very friendly and knowledgeable. Had a good time.
