  1. Hello. We are a group visiting in November and interested in the tour. Where can I find the details if the tour. We will only be there for 3days.


    1. Hello Tanya, thanks for your message.

      The tour is focused on the Portuguese slavery and colonial history. We try to revisit the city and its streets where the African historical presence is ignored. We mix history with culture and gastronomy, having some lunch in an African restaurant. We also also visit the African neighbourhood where we try some snacks. The tour lasts 5hrs and we usually start in the afternoon. In November, we will surely start at 2pm.
      We do not offer tour on Sundays but can arrange for the other according to the weather. November is a bit rainy, hopefully it won’t be the case on your dates.
      Let me know about your dates and we set it up.

    À bientôt…. J’espère


    1. Bonjour Madi,

      Merci pour votre message. Un tour est organisé mardi 19 Mars à 14h, vous pouvez alors réserver vos places.
      Juste vous rappeler que le tour se fera en anglais si cela ne présente aucun inconvenient pour vous. Toutefois s’il y a des explications à vous faire en français, je les ferai aussi.



  3. Hola, estoy en Lisboa hasta el viernes 12 de abril, ¿Hay algún tour en el que pueda participar? Hablo inglés y francés


  4. I’d like to thank you for the efforts you have put in penning this site.
    I really hope to see the same high-grade content by
    you later on as well. In fact, your creative writing abilities has
    inspired me to get my own, personal site now 😉


    1. Hello Jacinto,

      Thanks for your message. I am still improving the site and I am happy to know this inspires you.
      I have learnt a lot as I do it by my own without any training or support.
      I have learnt that contents are the key of a successful website and trying to write as many as possible.
      Hope yours will be better 🙂
      Good luck


  5. For those considering whether or not to book a tour, let me just say:

    I had an incredible experience and I highly recommend it to everyone, regardless of where you are from or what kind of background you may have on the subject matter. Naky is an exceptionally thoughtful and generous guide, and he brings together historical narratives and the sights, sounds, and tastes of contemporary Afro-Lisbon in a way that is engaging for history buffs and casual travelers alike. In my tour group, for example, there were academic historians as well as total non-specialists, and everyone felt comfortable participating in the conversations. I was especially fascinated by the way in which Naky eschewed chronological order and wove together stories about enslaved Africans from the 16th century, anti-colonial leaders active in the 1970s, and contemporary migrants, anti-gentrification activists, and nightclub-goers. Then of course there’s the food—we tasted dried fruits and hibiscus juice at a Senegalese market and delicious dishes at a Cape Verdean restaurant. This tour is a must-do Lisbon experience!


  6. Hi, would it be possible to book a tour for Tuesday July 16th in Lisbon ? It’s a group of 3 of us. Please let me know.
