Tour by Rita
Local

I’m Rita, a PR professional, a city girl and now a mommy, but still young and wild at heart!

For the last 7 years I’ve been showing visitors Lisbon from my perspective, and have made many friends along the way.

I take my guests to local markets to buy fresh produce for dinner, my favourite secret beaches, a winery owned by friends, and partying Lisbon-style! I also love to cook, and regularly host dinners at my place with a friend who’s a chef.

If you stick with me, you’ll probably end up at a show or a party with my friends and family!

I’m also an expert in the perfect caipirinha…

Description

We live in an era where minds are changing. But it has not always been like this. Women have been struggling to be heard for centuries and Lisbon's streets are filled with stories of an era where women could not vote, could not leave the country without a written permission by their husbands or fathers, and were considered 2nd class Portuguese citizens.
Surprisingly, this was not so long ago, my mother still went through it and has been telling me stories of meetings where she participated in the 70’s. That's why I have always considered myself a feminist.
Follow me on a journey of powerful characters, who have fought for gender equality. From politicians, teachers, doctors & more! Their stories are inspiring and I would love to share them with you.
I'll take you to my favorite place for an amazing view and quick intro to this empowering experience. From there let's uncover the neighborhood with all the secret little villas and stories the small streets and corners hide.
To keep the conversation going, let's enjoy some traditional tapas & a glass of wine and carry on to see the flea market area, majestic churches, and historical buildings.

Warm and welcoming; tasty pastry
Our host Rita was knowledgeable, friendly, and personable. Her insight of local customs, shops, and cuisine helped my family feel more at home during our stay in the charming Campo de Ourique neighborhood of Lisbon. Her co-host Carol has a talent for both baking and instruction, and I am grateful to have learned some specific techniques for making traditional Portuguese pastry. My daughter especially enjoyed helping and my husband especially enjoyed eating!
