Booking with Trip4Real was so simple. We just went on their website and searched for activities based on our interests. Since Lisbon is known as the birthplace of Fado, a Portuguese song with an emotional, melancholy theme, we wanted to experience the real Fado. We went online, booked our adventure of “Culture, Food & Fun,” and were set up with our local tour guide right away.
We met our Trip4Real guide, Madalena, in a hip neighborhood in Lisbon. We instantly felt like we had a friend in town. Madalena was born and raised in Lisbon so she knows the ins and out of the city. She brought us to a friend’s favorite restaurant where we dined on olives, fresh fish cakes, local wine, and other delicious local flavors.
After dinner, Madalena took us to A Tasca do Chico, a local Fado spot. At this tiny, dimly lit restaurant, we were able to experience the traditional songs of Portugal’s past. With red wine in hand, we closed our eyes, and listened to the heart wrenching, poignant, and expressive sounds of Fado.
Overall, our experience with Trip4Real gave us an authentic, local view of culture, food & fun in Lisbon!
