walking tour of Luanda?

Hello, am curious if seeing the following could be accomplished via a walking tour. If so, would you recommend a particular order? If not, can anyone recommend a good driver/guide? I have been unable to find a decent map of tourist sites in Luanda:

Museu de Antropologia

Museu de História Natural

Fortaleza de São Miguel

Palácio de Ferro

Mausoleum of Agostinho Neto

Banco Nacional de Angola

Benfica market

thanks!

You can do all but the market by walking. Only the walking would probably take you 1h15min in the following (or reverse) order:

Museu de História Natural

Palácio de Ferro

Banco Nacional de Angola

Museu de Antropologia

Fortaleza de São Miguel

Mausoleum of Agostinho Neto

Or after the Fortaleza go to the Ilha and do the Mausoleum another time. I would use Google Maps to make your own walking map with all the stops, I try to copy it here, not sure though whether it works e.g. https://www.google.co.ao/maps/dir/Museu+de+Hist%C3%B3ria+Natural,+Luanda/Pal%C3%A1cio+de+Ferro,+Rua+Major+Kanhangulo,+Luanda/Banco+Nacional+de+Angola,+Avenida+4+de+Fevereiro,+Luanda/Museu+Nacional+de+Antropologia,+Avenida+de+Portugal+ex+Friedrich+Engels+n%C2%BA+61,+Luanda/Fortaleza+de+S%C3%A3o+Miguel,+Cal%C3%A7ada+de+S%C3%A3o+Miguel,+Luanda,+Provinz+Luanda/Memorial+Dr.+Ant%C3%B3nio+Agostinho+Neto,+R.+Nova+Marginal,+Luanda/@-8.8161399,13.2237749,16z/data=!4m38!4m37!1m5!1m1!1s0x1a51f24be39f666f:0xd3d0f84fc33844b6!2m2!1d13.23841!2d-8.8151229!1m5!1m1!1s0x1a51f24f1fd29fa7:0xff355c95a39aafff!2m2!1d13.2357156!2d-8.8121582!1m5!1m1!1s0x1a51f24f9bd5fac1:0xce0c0ad7949b2a67!2m2!1d13.2340867!2d-8.8106419!1m5!1m1!1s0x1a51f3bcf66098a5:0x61a233282fa4ab6c!2m2!1d13.2279089!2d-8.8135949!1m5!1m1!1s0x1a51f258533cdcc1:0x2aa64df5c193009e!2m2!1d13.2234282!2d-8.8083294!1m5!1m1!1s0x1a51f3008bb26da7:0xa5f851ee598e6c76!2m2!1d13.2189881!2d-8.8236324!3e2 (copy all until here into your browser and it should work)

for the market you need a guide or driver. Check for example with eco-tur, they are pretty reliable.

You can grab a boat to Ilha from a short bus ride away too out of Luanda center near the big red dome. If anybody finishes off the day before 2 i would suggest this. If you speak Portuguese you don't really need a guide.
