  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.


  2. Bonjour,

    Nous sommes à 2 et arrivons ce lundi 18 mars pour 3jours à Lisbonne. On peut programmer une visite ?
    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. Hi Naky,

    I just wanted to confirm my reservation for three on April 2. It was booked through the Foodie Booking site.


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

  5. 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

  6. Good morning! I am interested in your tour for either today (June 11th) or tomorrow (June 12). How can I get more details where to meet up etc? Is it possible to pay in cash? I’m staying on R. António Pedro 1000-032 .

  7. 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!

  8. 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.



  9. Hi, I just bought two tix and want to set the dates. Can you email me at the email I’ve used to comment. Thank you!

      1. Aw man, that’s a bummer. I won’t be available for those dates. Can you issue me a refund please? Thanks

  10. Hi, can I book a tour for 2 on either August 29th? I just want to make sure you’re available before I pay. Or plan to pay in person! Thank you.

  11. Hi. I will be in Lisbon from 8/14-19, will you be offering any tours during this time? There will be 3 of us. Please provide details, time? Meeting point? Purchasing tickets? Duration of tour. Thank you!

    1. Hello Tee,
      Thanks for your message and sorry for the delay. Trying to figure out with the calendar. Would you like to join us on Aug 16, 10am?
      If yes you can purchase the tickets on the website.
      The tour is 4 hours walk and the rest of the time in an African restaurant.
      Looking forward to reading from you.

      1. Hi. I booked my 3 tickets. The 16th works great for me. Please share details of where to meet? Time? Etc. I am looking forward to the tour!

      2. Hello Tee, your payment has been received for 3 spots.
        We meet at 10min before the start at Praça de comercio by the statue…
        Looking forward.

  12. Olá!

    Você tem um tour planejado para amanhã (07/08/2019)? Fico em Lisboa até dia 08 e infelizmente só descobri o African Lisbon Tour hoje, então amanhã seria minha única oportunidade de participar.


      1. Hey,
        thank you for your reply and this information! We are very glad that a tour for us would be possible. Is there a possiblity to have a special price for 20 people? We are a youth organization that is visiting Lisbon as a part of our education program and we are a little bit on a budget… A shorter tour or a tour without food would also be fine for us! You can also contact me directly, if you have any questions! Thank you in advance!

  13. I will be in Lisbon August 22, 23 and 24 and would like to take your tour on one of those days. How do I arrange to do so?.

  14. Hello,

    My wife are currently visiting Lisbon leaving on 21/9. Will you have any tours taking place on on 19/9 or 20/9?



      1. Thank you for your response. Unfortunately my wife and I will be leaving Lisboa on Saturday and will not be able to join the tour. I look forward to following your blog and connecting when we return to Lisboa. Until then please keep sharing your research h and knowledge with travelers.



    1. Hello,

      I’ll be in Lisbon between Saturday and Tuesday. Is there any opportunity to take part in one of your guided tours? As a German-Portuguese having grown up in a luso society that is ‘proud’ of the Portuguese history, I am looking forward to learn more about the ‘neglected’ negative side of the Portuguese past. 🙂


      1. Yes, I just booked the ticket. Looking forward to it. The guided tour will be in English, right? Do you offer Portuguese tours, too?

        Anyway, gonna be there on Saturday then. 🙂

      2. Hi again,

        just wondering where the tour starts. Since I didn’t receive any ticket via email and didn’t happen to find any info here on the HP, I would be very thankful if you could tell me where to go on Saturday.

        Rogério 🙂

      3. Hello Rogerio,
        Sorry for the late reply. Your payment has been received.
        We meet at Praça de comercio by the statue.
        Meet you there. Any questions, feel free to ask.

  15. Hi,
    I’m coming from London and I’d like to join the group on Monday October 7 before 4pm, do you have any slots available? Thank yoi

  18. Hi Naky,

    I’m looking to possibly go on the African Lisbon Tour in late November, either the 27 or 28. However, on your website, under booking, I don’t see where I can see available dates for the tour and how long it lasts. Would you provide more information?


  19. Good day. We will be in Lisbon December 22-26 and would appreciate the opportunity to learn about the interaction of Portugal and the countries of Africa. Will there be a tour available on any of these days?

    Thank you.

    1. Good day Thomas, sorry for the delay. I was off-line during my trip to Africa. I will let you know when closer to your dates. We need to check if the weather is favourable to us.

      1. Thank you , hoping for a favorable weather report for a December tour. We look forward to hearing from you. We will be leaving the US on Dec 18.
