What to expect

Fado is more than just a musical style, it is a particular way of feeling and the sung expression of the Portuguese soul. The origin is still somewhat uncertain, along with the traditional music numerous influences from Brazil, Africa and even the Middle East have joined it. But it was in Lisbon in the eighteenth century that this mixture of sounds and melancholic mourning came together and created what is now recognized as Fado. Fado is in essence a genre that has a nostalgic register, tending to talk about issues such as Love (often lost or unrequited), the bohemian life, moments linked to daily life and to the most disadvantaged classes.

During this tour you will pass by historical neighborhoods such as Bairro Alto, Alfama and Mouraria, learning more about the traditional aspects of life, so you can get a feel of the city like a true local, a ‘Lisboeta’!

Along the 3.5 hours you'll have the opportunity to taste a variety of food samples and wines and get to see real live performances from ‘fadistas’ alongside the traditional sound of the Portuguese guitar.
