About this listing

Discover the vibrant multicultural atmosphere in Lisbon through the eyes of a local on this guided tour of the city. See how the influence of African culture has shaped the gastronomic and music scenes, creating a distinctive society and setting the community apart from other Portuguese cities. The proximity of Lisbon to the African continent has resulted in a multicultural society that includes a variety of different styles, fashions, and ways of life. As people arrive from Mozambique and Cape Verde, they bring their food and music—arguably the most unifying aspects of any community—and your local guide knows exactly where to seek out these pockets of Africa in the city center. Wander the streets and experience the lively atmosphere as you get to lesser-known locations that you might have otherwise missed and see the city in a new light. Get a recommendation from your guide for a delicious meal at a nearby restaurant, or feel the rhythms and beats of a faraway land coming from a live music venue right in the heart of Lisbon. Share about the african history and legacy in the African city in Europe.

Originally from Togo, I have come along with this experience due to my passion for history. Always willing to know more about african history, this tour was created to understand better Lisbon and its people. I found a reason to live a settle in Lisbon for its riches in culture and would like to share with everyone from the eyes of view of a Local african in general but especially a non portuguese colony descendant.

Naky was a terrific guide. We learned so much about Portugal and its colonies and the experience of slavery - all of which we would not have really understood without Naky. I feel so fortunate to have had this unique experience and wish that all visitors to Portugal would learn what we did. Our trip to Portugal was greatly enriched because of Naky. Also, our visit to a Cape Verdean restaurant was terrific and added an additional dimension to an already superb tour. Thank you Woutrip and especially thank you to Naky.
We really enjoyed our tour. We learnt a lot, Naky is very knowledgeable and his approach is very interactive. We sampled some delicious Cape Verdean too! Thank you Naky!
