What people are saying about Lisbon

We were delighted with this tour, our guide Rodrigo is one of a kind, a great connoisseur of Lisbon history and culture, it was a shame I only was in Lisbon for one night, but for sure I’ll come back, the Fado experiences is something new we learn and enjoyed a lot having a magnificent dinner and get to know the music genre.

It was a lovely experience. Shorter than what I expected though. It’s less than 1 hr; about 45 minutes. The female singer (Ruth, I believe) was phenomenal. Good value.

I like it very much. The music was calm and sentimental a bit. I am not an expert in FADO singing, but ir was a nice experience.

Great event, great tour, will be back in a heartbeat!

Loved the music, singing, and dancing was amazing.
