Take a family-friendly leap into Lisbon’s lesser-known lore, as local guides enlist games, stories and scavenger hunts to put the fun firmly back in the facts.
A history-heavy walking tour with kids in tow may sound like it’s tempting tears, but this interactive jaunt through Lisbon’s oldest quarters will get the whole family on board. Ticking off a mix of must-see sights and lesser-known spots, you’ll explore the city’s storied streets through a series of games and competitions, with your local guides regaling you with entertaining tales from Portugal’s past along the way. You’ll emerge a family of fully fledged Alfacinhas, and have a fair bit of fun in the process.
There’s no shortage of guides in Lisbon, but the prospect of having bored kids in tow can make a history tour seem less than appealing. Thankfully, the city has Maria and Mariana, both of whom are parents, experienced guides and all-round antiquity enthusiasts. Passionate about sharing the city that they love, they’ve put together a team who know how to engage and fire kids’ imaginations, creating a string of educational tours that are fun and informative.
