Muito Prazer!
Sep 2019 • Couples
My husband and I were visiting Portugal for the first time. It was our belated honeymoon. We could not ask for a better guide than Rui and our driver David. Rui was very knowledgeable and answered all of our questions. David made sure we got everywhere we needed to be safely and on time. Sintra and Cascáis are lovely towns to visit that are quite close to Lisbon. Rui also gave us a walking tour of Lisbon on another day that really brought the city to a whole new life. My only regret is that we didn’t get to spend more time with them exploring more. I have and will continue to recommend my Lisbon tours to all our friends and family. Next time we are in the area we will be sure to take some of the other historical and artistic tours with them!

Best Tour Ever!
Sep 2019 • Couples
My wife and I had a blast with Rui and our driver David. Felt like a great day out with friends, rather than a guide and the people he’s giving a tour to. Rui and David made it feel like a genuine human experience, not at all transactional.

Rui gave history, background, and/or context to every place we went and everything we saw. In addition to the usual tourist places, Rui showed us a few spots that only the locals go to and that made all the difference.

Next time we are in Lisbon, definitely going to contact Rui for another excellent tour. Thank you again!

Rui was an excellent, friendly and informative Tour Guide with a vast knowledge on the history of Sintra. This is a very popular and busy Tour and Rui made sure we were there early enough that we were ahead of the long queue. A huge advantage! We then had a relaxed and fun trip to The Lighthouse on the most western point and on to Cascais with delicious seafood lunch to cap it all. Would totally recommend My Lisbon Tours for anyone visiting Lisbon and the surrounds of Portugal.

Best tour - Sintra and Cascais
May 2019 • Family
My family visited Portugal for the first time in May and the highlight of our time in Lisbon was our tour to Sintra and Cascais with Rui.
We had been on a half day walking tour of the Graça/Alfama area with Rui when we first arrived in Lisbon and were so impressed with his knowledge and charming manner that we decided to book the Sintra tour with him on our return from Porto.

Rui met us at our apartment accompanied by the perfect gentleman and driver, Victor. The car was extremely comfortable and we felt like VIP’s with all the courtesies afforded to us. Rui is a walking ‘Google’ with a vast knowledge of everything you need to know about Portugal, historically and otherwise.

After arriving in Sintra, he took us to a wonderful coffee shop so we could sample the delicious pastries and cappuccinos, then proceeded to Sintra Palace which was spectacular, but what really made it special was having such a knowledgeable, warm and considerate guide.
There were several other groups of people with other guides but when I compared what these guides were sharing with their groups to Rui, there was no comparison.

After leaving Sintra we visited the most Westerly point in Europe, Cabo Da Roca, which was rugged and beautiful, before heading off to Cascais, where Rui took us to the best restaurant we’d been to in Portugal. The grilled seafood, wine and service was superb and the ambience exceptional with a million dollar view of the beach and turquoise water. Rui then guided us on a walking tour of Cascais which didn’t disappoint. By this time we felt that Rui was part of our family. He is an amazing guide and an absolutely wonderful person.

We arrived back at the apartment after a wonderful experience and gave our landlord Rui’s information to share with others who may want the best Lisbon experience.
I highly recommend this tour and will not hesitate to book other tours with this company when we return to Lisbon.

Thank you Rui, you are very special.
