Our tour with Rui was outstanding. He is so knowledgeable about Lisbon in every aspect - history, economy, government, architecture, and more. Our teenaged children were captivated by the information that he shared with us; much more than if we were trying to teach them! He is accessible, friendly, flexible and well-informed. And his English is perfect. We are grateful to have found him!
