We will be on the Aug. 14th Porto trip. I noticed in Viator there are a few Fado walking tours available. Before I sign up for any, does anyone know if Uniworld offers an optional tour while in Lisbon. Also, for any prior as your trip...both sights and food.

Thank you. I am aware of those two trips. I was looking for a tour that includes a Fado performance. I will be taking the Sintra trip and I will probably book a walking tour with a fado experience for Friday afternoon through Viator. I assume that there will be some form of orientation meeting on Thursday night (first night) at the hotel. Thank you again.

Are these optional excursions offered during the pre-river tour? Will there be some type of orientation when you arrive in Lisbon?
