We did this tour on our first night in Lisbon with our family- all adults. Our guides Claudia and Ze were fantastic. Very knowledgeable and fun. It was also fun to be part of a group and experience Fado and dinner. The food was tasty and the restaurant was very accommodating.

Passionate display of local culture

We had a fantastic informative tour by Jaó. He has a great personality and treated us very kindly. The food was great and the song was very true to the fado culture. Next time I will also rather stay at the hostel than book elsewhere. It displays professional personal and neat accommodation.

wonderfull ambiance, very good food, beautiful music, nice people

We've had a very special night in Alfama. We have met people from all over the world in the Alfalma Hostel that has a great hospitality! Felt and shared the emotion of the Fado music and had a lovely diner and tapas. Didn't want to miss this. And for this price I didn't expect this at all! Recommend it to everybody! Only the hostel is a bit difficult to find in the little streets wit stairs of the beautiful Alfalma district.
