Naky is a history enthusiast and loves to show Lisbon through its past.

In this walking tour you can explore the influence that the Portuguese Expeditions had in the history of Africa, and in Europe, and the inheritance that remains in the lifestyle of the Portuguese people.

At the end of the tour, Naky will take you to a great African restaurant where you will find excellent cuisine from countries like Angola and Cape Verde.

All you need is a good camera and appetite for traditional African cuisine.

The tour was incredible interesting with lots of new insights into Lisbon's history, as Naky knows so much about the African history of Lisbon. Besides, the food was delicious and the restaurant had a great atmosphere. I definitely recommend this tour to everyone looking for an unique experience in Lisbon.

I live in Lisbon and didn't even know that we had so many historic sights. The walk is taught but it's worth to hear what Naky has to say. The dinner was also great, the food was really good and I got to know another restaurant to go to whenever I miss home.

I'm majoring in African studies so this experience was a must do and it was really eye opening. I'm not so much into cooking, but the food was amazing and the restaurant looked really authentic, the cooks were from Cape Verde and made incredible "funge". Thank you Naky.

Had no idea how much Portugal influenced (and is influenced) by Africa. The tour was really eye opening towards the Portuguese lifestyle and African roots. The food was also very (very!) good.
