Lisbon Private Tours and Sintra Private Tours

When you think of Lisbon, you imagine yellow trams climbing the hilly terrain. Traditional Fado music carries through the air as locals dance on a Friday evening – merriment spills out into the cobblestone streets – and the delicate aroma of fresh Pastel de Nata wafts on the breeze. 

If you’re a Context traveler, you’ve just enjoyed the perfect experience of Lisbon in a Day, where your Expert perfectly executed every detail of the itinerary – tailored to suit your group’s interests, that you filled our team in on while you were booking. 

Tomorrow you could be waking up early to enjoy a day trip to Sintra, with many extravagant villas and fairytale-esque castles to enjoy. The history of this unique region is brought to life by your local expert, who guides you through this charming village, which was once the summer retreat of Portuguese royalty.

Your Context Tour becomes the highlight of your experience. It is also an investment in local culture – supporting the research and continued expertise of hundreds of local historians, chefs, professors, and more. 

Join a small group walking tour to see Lisbon through the eyes of an expert with 10 or fewer travelers, or choose a private tour and discover the top sites in the city side-by-side with a private guide. 

Gain Context on Lisbon and make the most of your trip while creating unforgettable memories.

We really enjoyed our tour of the neighbourhood especially as we were staying in the area and the first day of our visit to Portugal. We liked that our guide Tiago brought us to the small family food establishments which he is worried are disappearing. He had an incredible amount of knowledge about the history of the city which provided a unique perspective of the food and the wine. The food was great too!
We spent a delightful day with Estela. Estela is extremely knowledgeable, professional and enjoyable to be with. We learned a tremendous amount about the history, culture, and soul of Lisboa. What a delightful experience!
Tiago was a wonderful guide and brought the Alfama neighborhood to life through the tour. A definite highlight of our trip!
