Fora da Rota in Portugal
We are a tour company whose mission is to create tours and activities that stimulate local authenticity. We value creative partnerships with active individuals and communities that work with local residents, providing the visitor with enriching and authentic learning.
Our tours in Lisbon offer the visitor the opportunity to enjoy like a local.
1. First, we organize tours with private and small groups (up to 8 people). This way you will feel much more comfortable and you will have a more friendly relationship with your local guide. You are our special guests and not just another tourist.
2. We walk! It is the best way to find the real, authentic spots, the real hidden gems! We don’t make a noise while walking and we don’t produce traffic jams!
3. Do you want to find the real, authentic Lisbon? We know the spots. That cozy place where you listen to Fado as if you are part of the family, the best viewpoints to see Lisbon, that local story from someone who has great memories of the city to share.
4. ”Think sustainable” is also to develop partnerships with the local commerce and social organizations, real representatives of the local community. This way, we are always looking for new tours and activities in which you will feel welcomed and part of the local life.
In love with traveling, culture, history and music I do a bit of everything in Fora da Rota: I share ideas through our blog and stories in our tours. I believe that travelling is a learning moment which helps strengthening bonds and understanding better other cultures. I hope sharig nice memories with those that would like to have a Fora da Rota experience.
I’m a luso-brazilian in love with learning more about other cultures. Two years ago, when I returned from Mozambique to Portugal I’ve found a country even more diverse. With a special taste for music, dancing, and other cultural expressions, I’m always discovering new places that can be rediscovered. I’m very communicative and available to talk, bringing new partnerships.
