Highly recommend a tour with Little Lisbon!

Our family of 4 (6.5 and 8 year old) did a half day walking tour (Genuine Lisbon) plus the Castle on our recent trip to Lisbon. I can't speak highly enough of the tour, of our guide (Mariana), and of the organization! The tour was fabulous and Mariana did an amazing job of both imparting knowledge that resonated with the adults and the kids alike, but also keeping all of us engaged. The communication with Little Lisbon was clear, thorough and super prompt. The information Mariana gave us both before, during and after the tour was instrumental in making our visit to Lisbon so fabulous. We will definitely do another tour with them on our next visit and will certainly recommend them to anyone we know planning a trip to Lisbon.
Thoughtfully planned

We know Lisbon relatively well as adults, but thought we would benefit from a little help in engaging our 10 and 13 year olds with the fabulous city of Lisbon. Letitia guided us around the Alfama area - an area i thought we knew a bit - and we all learned so much more. I could quite happily do another 3 or 4 of the tours! The kids liked the treasure hunt, loved the navigation (only one sibling argument!) and fought over the cakes. Thank you for making it a special day Letitia!
Wonderful walking tour!

From the very first email with Mariana, our experience with Little Lisbon was phenomenal. We booked the Genuine Lisbon tour for our small family of 3 and also had Little Lisbon help with booking a sunset sailing tour with a third party tour company. Both tours were amazing and took the stress out of planning things independently.

The walking tour was one of our favorite highlights of our week in Lisbon! We learned so much and Mariana was so engaging and fun to spend a few hours with. Our daughter loved pointing out things she had learned on that first day during the rest of our trip. We especially loved the scavenger hunt at the end of the walking tour and the little “prizes” at the end.

Thank you, Mariana, for giving us a wonderful introduction to Lisbon and sharing your knowledge and love of such a captivating city!

We’d highly recommend these tours to all, with or without kids, it was a nice pacing and amount of information to take in.
Little Lisbon tours is fun and engaging for families of all ages

Our family loved our “Genuine” Lisbon tour. Mariana, a Lisbon native and our guide, made the content enjoyable for our twelve-year old tween and for us. Unlike many traditional tours for adults where the tour guide does mostly talking and explaining, Little Lisbon tours encourage active participation by integrating all the senses, sight, sound, touch, and smell. We learned so much history in such a fun interactive way! I highly recommend Little Lisbon tours for families.
Great trip

We booked the “Genuine Lisbon” tour for our family with two kids (9 year old boy and a 4 year old girl). Our guide, Letitia, was incredible. She was knowledgeable and kept our kids engaged. We even did a fun scavenger hunt. Letitia was able to keep the kids involved for the entire time and we learned a lot of lisbon’s history.

We also booked a babysitter through Little Lisbon. The babysitter, Adriana, was incredible with the kids and kept us informed throughout our evening. We were able to enjoy the evening on the tour without any worry.
