Private Old Lisbon Tour by Tuk Tuk
The tour performs the magic of changing visitors into locals (hopefully not too much) in just 75 minutes. You just have to sit down, listen to me saying the hocus-pocus words and when you leave the tuk tuk you’re completely versed about Phoenicians, Greeks, Carthaginians, Romans, Moors and Crusaders who shaped Alis-Ubbo in the last 30 centuries, the main influences of each one and the must-see attractions in old town.
After the tour, my clients can enjoy at least one full day of quality time by themselves, exploring my leads.
The tour includes the visit of several works of some contemporary leading street artists (Vhils, Fairey) and many picturesque details of Alfama, Mouraria and Graça districts.
