Fado free walking tour is the most authentic tour we have taken so far (and we usually take one in every city we visit). There are not many things that are so essential to the city’ spirit as fado is to Lisbon. And Mariana's passion for fado is simply contagious. This tour was an amazing experience for both more experienced fado fans and complete newbies. Mariana is not only a professional fado singer, but she is an excellent story teller. She presented stories about famous fadistas in a very personal way, at moments with the touch of witty humor, and few fado songs. The tour route is off the beaten path in old neighborhoods of Alfama and Mouraria, which makes it even more authentic. I would recommend this tour to everyone who wants to truly experience Lisbon!
