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.

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.
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.
