Lisboa Autentica was the best choice I could make to for my group of 100 people. Passion and love for own city - this is how they hooked me. They went the extra mile and exceeded my expectations. I would definitely work with Mafala and her team (Anita and Pedro?) again!

We called Lisboa Authentica the evening before the tour for possible tour in the area of Alfama and Castle. And spoke to the owner of the agency Mafalda, she was genuinely helpful, receptive to our wishes, and very flexible in finding the guide for us while there was no planned tour on that day. On the phone she was explaining... More

Interesting tour, amazing choice of places and history given by the guide. Tour lasted 3,5 hours. There were 6 of us including the guide Luis, who is very experienced and told us a lot about the history of wine, history of Lisbon in general etc. Highly recommended.

We had an excellent visit of Lisbon with tour guide Claudia this morning. She showed us arround in Bairro Alto, Baixa, Chiado and Aldama and told us a lot about Portuguese history and lifestyle. Without a guided tour we would probably not have seen stunning places such as the Cervejaria Trindade - the oldest and most beautiful beer house in... More

I organized two tours for my group of 14 entrepreneurs on a business mastermind retreat so they could really take in and discover beautiful Portugal. We had a fantastic afternoon with Rita our guide wandering through the streets of Sintra, to the amazing Quinta da Regaleira and then on to view the coastline, visit a beach and see the Western...

From reading Tripadvisor me and my group of 7 persons were excited to join the "Lisbon Gastronomy". So I sent them an email one week in advance before our trip to Lisboa. I never got an answer. While we were there, we called them and got in to contact. They promised to call us back, but never did. So we... More

as they say: "“Lisbon Gastronomy” is a unique way to discover Lisbon through the flavours and history of its restaurants, cafes, eateries, small taverns, and grocery stores" it is true! Joanna is a great guide! And the traditional food and drinks are delicious. We enjoyed it so much! :)

Staying in Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores

Neighborhood Profile
Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores
A pending candidate to become a World Heritage Site, Lisbon's downtown (the "Baixa Pombalina", or simply "Baixa") is a perfect example of anti-earthquake construction, having been rebuilt following the 1755 earthquake by the famous Marquês de Pombal (hence its name). Its offer is vast: restaurants and cafes in Rossio and Restauradores, outlets and shops in the Áurea, Augusta, Prata and other famous streets, the imponent Praça do Comércio and its Arch, the luxury shops along the Avenida da Liberdade, this is the beating heart of the city center. The Baixa also grants easy access to trains leading to Sintra, the trams that go around the Castle hill, old neighborhoods or even take you to Belém, and Lisbon's traditional restaurants and cafes. Considering a visit to the Fashion and Design Museum (free entrance) and don't forget to try the famous liquor, "ginjinha"!
