Lisbon Walking Tours By The Rogue Historians

Our Lisbon guided tours cover all of Lisbon’s most iconic sites; from the Tower of Belem, the palaces of Sintra and the old town of Alfama. But on top of that our experiences are designed to take you deeper into Lisbon’s and Portugal’s history, from the slave trade to the voyages of Vasco da Gama, from World War 2 to the Carnation revolution. Kings, explorers, pirates, and spies and everything in between, if we don’t have exactly what you’re looking for then contact us, and our team of experts will be more than happy to design a unique experience just for you.


The Dark Heart of Lisbon

Join us after the sun sets for an evening walking tour as we explore the darker side of Lisbon’s history through the winding streets of Alfama and downtown Lisbon!


City of Spies: Lisbon during WWII

Lisbon played a pivotal role in WWII despite not a single gun being fired here. A route for Jewish refugees, and tonnes of Nazi gold, and not to mention spies from all over the world.  Dive into the murky waters of wartime Lisbon.

Historic Shops and Crafts of Lisbon

From grocers to bakers, to candlestick makers we explore all that makes Lisbon special. Exploring stores that have been practising their crafts for hundreds of years, the history behind them and the products and services they provide.

Who Are The Rogue Historians?

The Rogue Historians were founded all the way back in 2013, by newlyweds Rachel and Ian. The family and company have grown since, but our principles remain the same. We are dedicated to sustainable tourism, with small groups and some of the best storytellers in the business.

We are a team of archaeologists, historians, writers, and artists, who are all committed to providing the best walking tours of Lisbon and Rome. With itineraries that stray from the archaic and mundane tours of old, where 50 people follow the umbrella of a guide going through the paces.

A tour shouldn’t be a monologue, but an interactive experience, which encourages debate and conversation, our small groups (max 8 people) foster that principle, while in this new world of Covid-19 best ensures your safety.

We aren’t the cheapest, how could we be with so many ‘Free’ walking tour companies, but our prices are fair. Fair prices, that won’t break your budget but will ensure our guides are generously reimbursed for their expertise, fully insured, and the best in the business.

So what can we do for you?



In the wake of the global pandemic which has affected so many of us over the last few months we have changed the way we operate in order to make our experiences as safe as possible for you and our expert guides.

  • We have decided to decrease our maximum group size from 20 to 8, with no change in costs for you, this minimises contact with over travellers, allowing you to keep the recommended social distance whilst still being close to your guide and able to hear clearly.

  • We have extended our cancellation policy, to cover you for a full refund if there is a second outbreak, flight cancellations etc, or even if you simply feel unwell. The safety and well being our a clients and guides is paramount and we would rather give you a full refund a couple of hours before a tour, rather than risk infection of the group and guide.

  • We are now allowing payment for some tours to be made on the day itself.

  • Our guides have all been equipped with suitable face coverings and hand sanitiser in accordance with new hygiene laws in Portugal.
