What you'll do

Be green, be great!
Let's be honest, when we go on a city trip, we all want to discover secret places, eat typical dishes, live like locals just the time of a weekend then go back home after absorbing as much culture as possible. What if we do all that while making a positive impact? What if we leave the place cleaner than before we came?

During this walk, we'll visit 5 places off the beaten tracks, a genuine square, 2 gardens, a cemetery and the village of LX Factory. All along, we'll be equipped with gloves and recyclable bags so we can pick up some trashes. If you wish to contribute.

Get ready to become an Eco-tourists!
Far from the usual crowd, we'll meet around a good warm beverage and some Portuguese dry fruits and nuts.

Going through the COMPLETELY unknown to tourists neighborhood of Campo de Ourique and still one of the most beautiful with its pink trees, we'll learn a lot about the city and its history. Across Estrella, we'll talk about the way the city transforms through the new challenges of globalization to arrive in Alcantara and have gentrification sight and understanding.

It becomes more and more important to understand a city not just by its past but by its present too, to take actions, to settle new habits to travel a better way and become responsible citizens of the world.

Henry, my Belgian Sheppard rescued dog will lead the way!

How could I get in quickly?
I like to travel and discover secret and authentic places.
My name is Thomas Cock. I come from Brussels where I was a journalist but was actually born in Congo. I lived in Montreal where I was a comedian, in Paris, where I was an actor, in San Francisco where I worked for NGOs and now in Lisbon where I opened a tourist activity "Thomas Cock Travel Agency ". Made to be!
Lisbon is: the SF bridge, the Père Lachaise cemetery, the conviviality of Brussels, the kindness of Montreal and the lights of Congo.
Henry, my dog is a Belgian Sheppard rescued in Lisbon. He loves to walk and pick up garbage. Join us for a walk.

Where you'll be

Let's play outside! Let's reconnect with nature in the city through 5 places. A genuine square where old people play cards under a weeping willow near the water and its birds. My favorite garden on earth and its rich variety of trees. A cemetery built on the model of Père Lachaise where we can think about how species recycle. A park unknown from tourists. And finally, the gentrified village of LX Factory to go back to the human's world.

Such a great way to discover a beautiful part of Lisbon. Thomas’ enthusiasm and passion to share everything he knows about the city and history is amazing. It’s very easy to find yourself in interesting conversations with him while strolling the streets and parks and picking up rubbish. Henry is a cool dude, very friendly and patient getting a lot of attention from the locals leaving smiles on their faces. This tour is unique because it gave me a perspective no guidebook could have given me. I strongly recommend Thomas and Henry if you want to escape the crowded areas and have an experience that will make you feel good.

I met Thomas and Henry in a beautiful experience so well organized by him. He's a very emphatic person, so nice and dedicated. An experience with a purpose, cleaning the streets of Lisbon and at same time a walking tour. Def I’ll do it again when back in Town.

This is one of the most original way to discover the city of Lisbon as Henry and and Thomas are among the greatest experts of the seven hills and their secret gateways. Walking Lisbon streets is obviously the best way to discover its most beautiful and hidden places. Thomas is greatly knowledgable of the city’s history and its inhabitants culture. Henry’s sense of leadership, his amazing ability to have every passerby looking and smiling back at him makes the walk even more fun as you are sure to make new local friends along the way. It’s quite amazing how much a dog can do for you if you just let it guide you !

really enjoyed this experience with Thomas and Henry. It definitely changes from everything you are used to do when you are visit a city. We discovered beautiful gardens and the stories of Lisbon told by Thomas were amazing. Cleaning some splendid streets to keep Lisbon beautiful made so much sense and it felt good to help."

I was hesitant to book, because i could perhaps do something like that on my own, but now I understand why I was recommended. Thomas & Henry are such a pleasure, this experience should be charged more! too cheap! Also his knowledge of town is impressive. It's beautiful to walk around with someone who has so much passion and same time giving you enough space to process the experience. Im such a fan I booked the comedy dinner already! One word: AWESOME! i will be back Thomas & Henry!

More tips

Choosing this tour will lead you through the city while making a nice impact. For once, you leave the place better than before you come. The tour will teach you Lisbon's history but also new actions to take and how to become an eco-traveller! It also helps me to collect money to plant trees.
