Marta is an enthusiastic and informative guide with a deep knowledge of the history of Portugal. The day we spent with her visiting Sintra, Cascais and driving along the coast was pleasant and informative and we learned a lot. Her English is superb and there were absolutely no communication issues. We especially enjoyed the quick stop along the Atlantic coast to view the beautiful beaches and watch the surfers. She is a first class guide and another great find on TbyL.
