This tour will be divided in two parts: first the workshop will be held and later we will take a cultural tour through Lisbon. During this tour, you’ll learn how to make the famous codfish, one of the most well known dishes of portuguese cuisine. The class is entirely dedicated to salted codfish, so you can expect to learn the history and the process behind it while cooking your own lunch. In the afternoon, we will explore the Lisbon area and you will learn about its history while walking around the city center. You’ll visit the most emblematic sites of Portugal’s capital and learn about the Portuguese culture, unique heritage and traditions.
Our tours are always private (just you and our guide/driver).
The tour highlights recommend some places to visit, however, there are others that may interest you, so we list some of them on ‘optional visits and experiences’. Our main goal is to provide you an unforgettable day therefore we have the flexibility to customize the itinerary according to your preferences and tour length.
Our local guide will pick you up at your hotel, airport, cruise terminal or other meeting points.
Our tours are escorted by very experienced expert guides, all of whom work with us full time. With excellent English, permission to skip lines and expertise that came from real-life experience and on-the-ground knowledge, they are the key to accessing hidden gems and experiencing the true authenticity of our culture. Our guides are non-smoking.
This is a 100% class dedicated to salted codfish, where we will use traditional Portuguese techniques and recipes. The menu may vary according to season and available products and the class takes around 03:30 hours. In the end of the class, we will add to our lunch a Portuguese red and white wine or soft drinks.
Located in ‘Praça do Comércio’ it is one of the largest squares in Europe and for many centuries the main entrance to the city of Lisbon. To reach the downtown you’ll have to pass under the Triumphal Arch and walk up Augusta street. Currently the square is used for cultural events, New year’s eve and music concerts.
The heart of the city was rebuilt after the earthquake of 1755 with beautiful cobblestone streets, named after the craftsmen. Many architectural styles are represented, including the original neogothic style of Mesnier du Ponsard, present in his renowned work of the Santa Justa Elevator.

Please note that the price may vary depending on the choice you make.
