WHY MOURARIA?

We chose the Mouraria district for our Lisbon food tours because of the area's authentic restaurant scene, historical culture and charming ambiance. Mouraria is still one of the most traditional neighborhood of Lisbon with its tascas (local taverns) doing fresh homemade food.

In the past, Mouraria was once a ghetto of Moors and the Mouraria neighbourhood is known as the birthplace of Fado (a traditional Portuguese music style).

In 1755, an infamous earthquake shook Lisbon. However, Mouraria survived this catastrophe and there are so many beautiful and still original tiles to be seen there. Come enjoy this food tour with amazing views over the city of Lisbon.

The booking fee that you have to pay is up to our ticket provider and we can't change it. All our clients need to pay for it upon booking. The booking fee charged contributes to the cost of the ticketing system to provide an excellent service to our customers.

Foreign Transaction Fees

A few banks have charged their customer an extra fee while booking with us (this isn't the booking fee but another fee added by the bank). We think this is unfair, if this happens let us know by showing us in your bank statement and we will refund this fee as a gesture of good will.
