Rui L.

Lisboa, Portugal

Hi and welcome to Lisbon, the most beautiful city in the world!

My name is Rui, I live in Lisbon and I'm in love with Her!

I am a profound connoisseur of the city and her history (old, recent and present) and also of Portugal, from south to north, east to west.

Lisbon and Sintra. . . they have but a few secrets I do not know; stories and legends accumulated for centuries are part of my archive, which I will be happy to share with you.

With more than a thousand years of history, Lisbon - the city of Ulysses - has the most spectacular light that you have ever seen and nooks that only its lovers know.

Sintra, the village of the queens of Portugal, is 30 minutes away from Lisbon and it gives one the sensation that we're traveling back in time. . . to a time where kings and nobles crossed the streets in their carriages.

Palaces and chalets lost in a magical forest, the clouds that suddenly fall and envelop the mountain in mystery, they will make you wish to come back to Portugal next week!!

The coast of Sintra is simply fantastic. In the westernmost part of Europe the Atlantic has excavated very beautiful beaches, which make us want to travel with that sea that separates Europe from America.

I will be happy to show you some sites that will surely leave you with very pleasant memories and will show you a bit of Portugal and the Portuguese people.

See you soon!

A Recent Review of this guide

We had a wonderful day in Lisbon with Rui as our guide. He was extremely informative, gave us a very thorough introduction to Lisbon and its history. He showed us places we would never have found on our own even after many days here and the tour was not rushed in any way. As a result, we have decided we must come back for a longer visit. Thank you Rui
