We had an extremely enjoyable tour today with Augusto of the older neighbourhoods of Lisbon, other local attractions & especially a trip to Belém for the yummy Pasteis de Belém - a delightful young man who took us to lunch at his local Mercado where we had a delicious fafafel wrap! He dropped us at a very convenient spot for us after the tour - highly recommend Augusto for your touring of Lisbon! Coupe from Melbourne Australia

Augusto did a great job as a tour guide. He was very knowledgeable about Lisbon and the surrounding areas. He was very flexible, and even though we were unable to go to our original destinations - because of risk of fire the roads were closed that day - he quickly diverted our tour to another beautiful site before everyone else. We were able to make the day very successful after the initial disappointing news of the closure. I recommend him highly.

We certainly enjoyed our day of touring in Lisbon with Augusto. He picked us up at the port and we visited Belim, the Pena Palace as well as Sintra. It was a very full day and also a very interesting experience. This is a perfect way to get a comprehensive overview of the area surrounding Lisbon. It is most comfortable to experience with a car and driver as opposed to walk up and down all the many hills that encompass this part of Portugal. Augusto is an experienced tour guide and very well spoken.

We had the tremendous luck to spend the day with Augusto Silva visiting Sintra and Lisbon today. He is knowledgeable, accomodating and very proud of all there is to see in this magnificent part of the world. We covered more territory in 8 hours than most tourists see in a weekend and never once felt rushed . The impression of the city is one that left us wanting more. Outstanding tour and well worth it. Book in advance as Augusto is very popular!

We had a great time with Augusto. He advised it was best to get to Pena Palace before the tour bus crush & he was absolutely right. We were able to get in before the mob which allowed us to really enjoy our tour and get beautiful pictures. We loved the Estoril coast, Sintra & Cascais...so charming & beautiful! Augusto picked out a yummy, reasonably priced local restaurant for lunch. Perfect day at our pace. Highly recommend!

Sorry this took so long. We had an absolutely great tour with Augusto. He picked us up at the port, was easy to find, took us on some interesting places as just side trips for our interest. The tour to Belem and Sintra were both great for the Basilica and the Castle and also his quick entry and exit from the Belem bakery with egg cremes (Others were in line for hours). He is a very easy person to get along with, his driving was AMAZING navigating the Lisbon streets and the road up to the castle. Thanks.

Great tour to get a high level overview of Lisbon and understand both the geographic layout of the city as well as the historical highlights. Most of the tour is done by van so it is ideal for those who wish to cover a lot of ground with little walking (either mobility issues or time constraints) or who wish to get an overview before they start walking around the city. Augusto does make sure to stop strategically so you can get out and see sites as well as take photos.

Could only give 5 stars, would give him ALL the stars if I could. Picked us up at hotel in his immaculate VW exactly on time. (Actually early). We saw all points of interest that were listed on tour plan and he added some points that he thought we would like. He pointed out places that he thought we might like to visit on our own the next day. The tour included all the necessary commentary and he added his own person experiences and opinions which we enjoyed. Brought us to an amazing lunch venue.

Augusto was an enthusiastic energetic guide. He has a wonderful knowledge of the area and enjoyed showing and explaining Evora. We had lunch at a typical Portuguese restaurant and ate some delicious food we never would have ordered such as Dogfish soup. We also went to the prehistoric monoliths and a short visit to do a little wine tasting. The day went very quickly and all 6 of us had a great time. We have had many private guides and Augusto ranks up there with the best.

This was an amazing day. Gus picked us up at our hotel and we were off to take in the sites. He had suggested that we get to Pena Palace before they opened in order to beat the majority of the large crowds and he was right. we were on the first shuttle bus up to the Palace which really made a difference. We had plenty of time to enjoy the tour through the Palace and do some shopping ;) We then continued on to Estoril and Cascais to enjoy the amazing Portuguese countryside.

When you take a guided tour that includes a car and driver you want the car to be clean and comfortable and the driver to be excellent. Gus (Augusto) provides those basics and so much more. His enthusiasm for Lisbon is infectious and his personality puts you at ease as much as his driving does. As the day went along it felt more and more relaxed like traveling with a local friend or relative. I'd book him again in a heartbeat for another tour next time we come back,

Augusto was amazing! He picked us up at the cruise terminal in Lisbon where we began our tour of the city.He made our day exceptional. His knowledge of the area was great and his English was perfect. This tour was only four hours because our ship did not dock till 4:00 pm. We had an option of taking the tour offered by the cruise line. However who would want to do that when you would be on a bus with 50 people at a much higher cost. The bus tour would have never seen the places Augusto took us.

Very disappointed when Augusto went to the wrong hotel to pick us up. We made our reservation more than ten months ago, and wanted to feel like he had taken the time to get to know the details of our trip. But the tour itself was fine. We just think maybe your guides are too busy serving too many customers? Would have also been nice to have been told to bring a jacket—it was cold! So I borrowed his. Seems like you are all really busy, and one customer blends into another. But tour was great.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mary and Robert, thanks for your review. I made a mistake checking the meeting location and when double checked i was running out of time, i apologize my delay arriving at the meeting location.

Augusto provided us with a magical introduction to Portugal with this day trip from Lisbon to Sintra, Estoril and Cascais. He was most informative about the history and architectural details of the Pena Palais in Sintra. The lunch at an Oceanside table in a Seafood restaurant by the beach, off the touristy beaten path was the piece de resistance of the trip, assuring memories to savor for years to come. Augusto is a true professional whose love for Portugal truly informs his passionate enthusiasm.

Augusto provided a wonderful tour of Belem & Sintra. Augusto is extremely professional and very accommodating (we were travelling with a 2 year old). We had a wonderful day, which proceeded at just the right pace.

This was our last tour of our stay in Lisbon, Augusto definitely made it very memorable and we got our money's worth. There was nothing like having a very knowledgeable tour guide and the whole day excursion was so much fun in spite of the gloomy weather we had.

His positive and helpful personality was infectious and there was no doubt you could tell he loved what he did and his beautiful country.

I wish I could give more than 5 stars! Augusto is one of the very best guides ever. He has an excellent command of English, has a lot of knowledge and shares it readily, but is respectful and never interrupted our comments/ questions. He also looks for ways to make the tour easier/more enjoyable - like offering his arm for steadiness, finding an elevator for those who could not navigate stairs, or entering via another door to avoid long lines. One note: he doesn't like to devote tour time to shopping.

Tours by Locals you are an exceptional site, easy to navigate and excellent communications. We had a wonderful eight hour tour of Lisbon and Sinatra. Augusto was the most fantastic, informative, professional, and thoroughly charming tour guide of our entire six countries trip. So patient, as we are older travellers, and so respectful of our needs. I highly recommend Augusto as a travel guide who knows his country and his job so well and it is evident that he loves them both. Many thanks Augusto.

Such a wonderful day with Augusto! He is a true professional....extremely knowledgeable and has great communication skills! During our tour, one of our friends became ill and Augusto was very thoughtful and concerned and drove all the way back to Lisbon to drop him off at the hotel and adjusted the tour to make sure we got everything in! We would absolutely take a tour with Augusto again and highly recommend him! He is a very safe driver and his vehicle was comfortable!

This was an outstanding day trip out of Lisbon. Sintra and Cascais are beautiful areas and the lunch we enjoyed on the seaside was perfect. Make sure you follow Augusto's instructions to leave early so that you can be ahead of the enormous crowds in Sintra. It's well worth the extra ten minutes. His English language skills are outstanding.

This was a very pricey tour but for what we paid for it we really did not get anything we would not get on a hop on hop off tour. There was very little information and history. We really expected so much more for this price. Unfortunately the tour left us underwhelmed.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ann Shteynblik, Thank you for your review and i sincerely apologize that this tour was not what you expected. I have studied this tour "start to finish". For a 10 people group we needed a mini-bus so the quote naturally increases. My tours are always very informative and on that day i felt a little difficult keeping the adults and the kids together with the same level of interest. I will keep the hard working and improving my tours to be always part of the best guides. Sincerely, Augusto

Augusto was a superb guide with infinite knowledge of Lisbon, Sintra, and other sites that we visited. He had outstanding communication skills and knowledge of history. He was terrific companion as we spent the day with him and traveled by car. He represented exactly what we envisioned about the Portuguese people. He was kind, humble, open minded, and grateful. He has a great future in the tourism business. He is hard working and really passionate about Portugal and his work. Excellent in every way

Augusto was the perfect guide to use when touring Lisbon. He was friendly, knowledgeable & kept us fully informed throughout our tour. Two of the people in our group had walking difficulties and Augusto modified the itinerary to make the tour more accessible for them. He drove us as close to each site as possible, and went out of his way to assist them. One of our travelers lost his wallet & Augusto detoured to the police station and helped him recover it. I can't recommend him enough.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Gary Tinkel, Thanks for this review. That's right with started the tour going in a different direction with different needs, but at the end of the day we realized that live is easy! Kindest regards, Augusto

As we had a short three day stay in Lisbon, we decided to let a local show us around!! We could not have found half the places without this tour, professionally led by Augusto. He had great Portugese history knowledge as well as the local places of interest that he brought us to. It was well worth the money and we would recommend this type of trip when on a tight schedule like ours. Well done !

His knowledge and insight of the made this tour most enjoyable. He also knew the weather and thus suggested we do the tour backwards because of fog. The suggestion for lunch was outstanding. The most quaint place where no buses could ever get too. Spoke wonderful English, was punctural and on time. Really enjoyed Augusto and the tour.

Augusto is an exceptional guide -- courteous, knowledgeable, informative, and still easy-going. He really knew how to navigate the insane crowds in Sintra while still giving us a complete tour. His talks gave us a great sense of life in modern Portugal -- its challenges and opportunities. It was a terrific day.
