We are just a group of local friends who love to show you around and,tell you about the local funny stories,legends and myths,show the genuine culture.We also talk about our history and culture,but keep your mind open to listen the nonofficial stories, and we don't take you to the main touristic attractions.To keep it genuine and pure,we work on a tips-only bases,earning no commissions or any other support,working solely for what our travelers think we are worth. Please check all the info. and details on our page.

We don't accept groups

                          LOOK OUT!! VERY IMPORTANT!!

We are independent and not a big company, and we try to transmit the real Portuguese feeling and culture for this reason we can’t use a big red umbrella.

14/03/2016 another company, without any kind of moral/ethical values decided to start their tours on our meeting point and at the same time as we do, they aim to take you from our tour to theirs

Make sure you find the right authentic local guide using a Silverbag with a yello tram sign, and join us on the best free walking tour The Lisbon Chill Out Original Free Tour

Fantastic walking tour of Lisbon. We had Pedro and Luis, and appreciated their commentary not only about the various sites we saw, but also about the history of Portugal and current political/cultural context. Saw parts of Lisbon which we probably wouldn't have normally seen if we were guiding ourselves around the city. Our tour lasted about 3.5 hours - we... More

Went on a tour with Gabriella and Louis in the morning. They were really great and we went to some very interesting places. They were excited and keen to tell us all about the Portuguese culture and history! The only downside was that it took 3.5 hours and that the group was huge (they spoke loudly however so we could...

Excellent tour. Great storytelling and knowledgeable guides. They made the history of the city, especially the impact of the earthquake, come alive. The time passed quickly. I highly recommend it.

We were on the morning tour with Pedro on July 4th. Pedro was a great guide, giving good explanations of both historical and cultural aspects of the city, with humour and personal input. Only downside: we were a really large group, around 35 people which made the tour a bit "heavier". We would suggest the company to add another guide... More

I really enjoyed the tour and the guides Gabriela and Luis. They were open and genuinely wanted to share the information. Our of curiosity, I have read almost all the bad reviews on Tripadvisor before writing mine. 1) A lot of people do not seem to get that if the tour is free, it doesn't mean you leave without tipping...

My partner (who is Mexican) and I took the Spanish language tour this morning and loved every minute - from the narrow streets of the bairro alto through the elegant shopping of Chiado to the atmospheric village-like feel of Alfama. Gabriela was a wonderful group leader and transmitted her love for her adopted city (she is Brazilian) and some very... More

Rafael and Luis guided a rather large group on a tour of Lisbon. There is really no better way to explore Lisbon than with these two, you get all the highlights plus insider secrets and quirks.

I have never been on a walking tour before quite like this one, the guides were full of passion, history, personal stories about the city and capital of Portugal that they absolutely love. I would recommend taking part and become a traveller. It is free but you can "tip" them at the end... unfortunately I did not have enough euros.... More
