Date: Jan 2/20

This tour was an excellent introduction to the historic center of Lisbon. Marta is very knowledgeable and friendly and gave us lots of historic information as well as about the current state of Portugal. Our walking tour through several historic neighborhoods ended up at a cafe with a light lunch where she gave us lots of very useful advice and tips about other places in Lisbon we had planned for our trip - as well as some recommendations for music venues and a great book recommendation.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Well, i must say that with such a nice and interested audience as you and your beautiful family, everything is much easier and grateful :) I'm so very glad everything went so good and that you enjoyed the tour and my extra suggestions! All the best for you 4 :)

What a great tour. Lisbon is an amazing city and Marta truly brought it to life for us. She put context and perspective to the complicated history of what we saw. We were captivated by her wonderful sense of humor and the ease with which she dealt with the service people we encountered along the way. She also impressed us with her driving skill which is a valuable thing in Lisbon. Thanks Marta

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Dan, Your words mean a lot, honestly :) it's always grateful to know that my travellers had a wonderful time and enjoyed discovering my country, couldn't really ask for more! It was a pleasure having met you, I also had a perfect day with you :) All the best

Our second tour with Marta! I can't imagine anyone going to (or being in) Sintra without her leading the way. Saved us hours and hours, helped avoid long waits and hassles, provided great insight and information. Accommodating, interesting, generous with her time and knowledge. Quite simply, she made our day.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Besides the fog and the wind, the day ended up being perfect! Sometimes I just feel I'm a very lucky person to have such great people in my life. I also feel lucky to have people with special karma around me, parking karma, I mean ahahah Simply loved the sunday we all spent together. It's always a pleasure to show my travellers the most beautiful landscapes and use my secret strategies to run away from crowds and finish tours in a relaxed way after having seen truly a lot, as we did! :) Obrigada!

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.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear James, It's a true honour to have a review like yours. Thank you. I had a delighful day with you and I feel very happy everything corresponded to your expectations. Muito obrigada :)

Marta was a wonderful guide. She set a casual pace for these 6 ladies and her knowledge was outstanding. As a former American History teacher, her information added greatly to my understanding of this lovely city. Marta answered all our questions as if they were the most important ones. We could not have had a better guide for this most interesting tour. She get five stars for sure and that comes from all 6 ladies. Harriet Hyde.

A very relaxing, entertaining an informative tour, I was informed about the history of Portugal and Lisbon during the tour and also given tips on bus and train routes. The walking tour took in the hills of Lisbon and I was also given a guide to some of the best bakeries of Lisbon! Thanks also for the craft beet tips as I needed a relaxing drink after the tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your words, Martin! It was great to show you a little bit of my country during Lisbon's tour! You now know you really need to come back to Portugal and discover more about this old friend of England :) Cheers

This is one of the best tours in which I have experienced! Marta is an excellent tour guide who knows how to narrate an excellent story while sharing her knowledge about the place, its salient features, as well as funny tidbits. She is quite the professional, with a strong sense of empathy and affinity. While our travel delays forced the tour to begin late, Marta willingly accommodated us and was never concerned about the delay. She hit it off great with our entire family, including our three teens!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear James, I'm so lucky I met you and your family! It was a great day together! I know I already told you this but besides you and your wife being the kindest couple, you've managed to raise 3 amazing kids, truly, you must be very proud! (I had to turn this public ihihihih) I'm very grateful you all enjoyed the tour, I did also! Obrigada pela oportunidade de vos ter conhecido! E parabéns pelo seu Português!!! Até um dia, espero que muito em breve nos reencontremos :)

Marta was fantastic! We has Marta customize a full day tour plan for our family with two kids. We wanted to see some highlights of Lisbon but also some of the highlights of Belem, but we only had one day to do it! Marta was very helpful in setting up an itinerary that took into account the interests of our family and managed to keep both boys fully interested (and this is no easy feat!) Marta is entirely fluent in English, has a wonderful personality and a fun sense of humor! Book her!

Marta was fantastic. She went above and beyond for us. We booked two tours with Marta and she is clearly well educated and loves the history and culture. When she found out our plans for the balance of our trip that evening she sent us step by instructions of how to navigate Portugal and what to see when arrived. Along with those instructions was also a narration of what we were seeing there. Very thorough and would recommend Marta to anyone.
