Overview of the tour in Lagos

Free tour of Lagos's History, stories, and tales, with a local – History, culture, and essential tips, both local and region-wide.

Come with me!!

Being an “old school” traveler and experienced hotelier myself, who has already served thousands of travelers from all over the world, I love to show my town in an alternative and independent manner, a bit apart from the same old tours for tourists. So, you will see and hear what most people don`t. You will get unbiased tips for food, activities, day trips, and even other places if you wish—not to mention avoiding the “traps.”

After this tour, you will have a good idea of what has happened in this town from its origins to the present day.

Hear some legends, myths, and stories of one of the oldest human settlements in Europe and how events such as battles or natural disasters dramatically changed this area's human and natural shape.

We guide in small groups only, and it will take around two hours (maybe some minutes more). Better for the guests, better for us, and better for the town. Thank you for supporting real local people.
Please note: unfortunately, my tour is hard for kids younger than 8 years old.

This activity includes:

  • Castle of Lagos
  • Infante Dom Henrique
  • Mercado Municipal de Lagos
