Ian Sumpter of Context Travel took our group of 8 on an incredible Age of Discovery walking tour of the Belem district of Lisbon. Ian knows history, and how to bring it to life. If you have only one afternoon in Lisbon, spend it with...More
This morning we took our first Context Travel Tour…impressive! The size of the group (4 adults), vast historical knowledge of our guide, Ian, pacing of the 3 hour tour/walk, and content of Ian’s talk and anecdotes were a perfect introduction to Lisbon!
We did the day trip tour to Sintra with Estela, who is a very personable and knowledgeable guide. There were only 4 of us on the tour, and I was so glad we booked it, as I learned a lot about Portuguese history and architecture....More
We took the Romantic Sintra walking tour with Estela. There were only 4 of us in the tour. Taking the train from Rossio station to Sintra was great, you see so many areas of Lisbon in the 40 min trip. Estela is very knowledgeable and...More

Our very charming guide, Tiago, gave us a fascinating walking tour, the Introduction to Lisbon. We enjoyed his stories about Portuguese and Lisbon history, culture and architecture. It is a real plus to be led by a local, especially such an intellectual.More

Tiago was the best! He gave us an amazing tour of Alfama where he talked about so many aspects - history, culture, and politics - he weaved them all into an insightful narrative throughout the tour. What's more, Taigo is a scholar of architecture so...More

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"!
