We greatly enjoyed three tours with Susana: Lisbon; Sintra, Cabo do Roca and Cascais; and the Blue Coast. These tours form a highly complementary overview of Lisbon and its beautiful environs with a guide who is remarkably knowledgeable, indefatigably enthusiastic, incomparably experienced and endlessly flexible. Above and beyond those great positives, Susana is a very good driver (on roads that demand expertise). If you have a few days in Lisbon, you can't do better than spending three days with Susana.
