A perfect day in Sintra with Rui...he even managed to keep the rain at bay for us! His enthusiasm for his work and love of his country made this a wonderful day for all of us. He had no strict itinerary and allowed us to adapt our tour as the day progressed. We will recommend Rui to anyone we know who will be visiting Lisbon.

Rui is so knowledgeable and very prideful of his beautiful Lisboa! Our mistake that we misunderstood SUV for four adults made for tight quarters. Thank you Rui for lovely special treat!

Rui is v knowledgeable with the history of Lisbon and is flexible to accommodate the changes requested if it is within his schedule. A friendly and hospitable guide and has a good command of the English language. We all enjoyed the place he recommended for lunch where it has a wide variety of food to choose from. Thanks Rui!

Wonderful day trip outside of Lisbon. Rui made it very easy to see all the sights. Great with dropping us off at entrances and picking us up where ever we wanted to end up. Great with text communication.

We are happy to recommend Rui to anyone who is interested in someone who is knowledgeable and passionate about his country. We enjoyed his company and appreciated his experience in providing us with a memorable, magical experience. He was timely, provided water and a clean comfortable vehicle. He is an excellent driver and was very respectful in assisting us on a very short trip. Absolutely a wonderful experience with Rui. Al and Patsy

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for you words, Patsy It was my pleasure meeting you both; Hop to see you again with more time! All the best Abraço

My family and I had SO much fun on this tour with Rui. He was very knowledgeable about each of the stops, and he totally maximized every minute of the day. I noticed, several times, other tourists (not on our tour) leaning in to hear what he was teaching us about the culture and history of this region of Portugal. Rui was accommodating, friendly, and perfectly willing to adjust the schedule to fit in an additional landmark. Thanks for making our visit special, Rui! Abraço!

Rui really stepped up and came to our rescue when our original tour guide was unavailable. Found him to be very accommodating, friendly, and knowledgeable. We're from San Francisco and once we spotted the "mini Golden Gate" we just had to go and drive over it. Even though it wasn't part of our package, he made it a reality. We also were able to visit The Cristo Rei statue and we were in awe. My husband was able to discuss with him about many topics unrelated to the tour which he appreciated.

We had a fantastic half day tour with Rui. He is extremely knowledgeable, attentive, easy to understand (English) and organized. He arrived on time, consulted us on the route & sights to see, and then took us around Lisbon. He made it easy to find him when we wanted to grab a bite to eat and had great recommendations on local joints throughout the city. Would 100% recommend this to friends & family and book again to explore more next time. Obrigado Rui!

Rui started strong even though it was a quiet Sunday morning in Lisbon. He directed us to walk the narrow, cobblestone streets while they were quiet. Then to St. George Castle for unparalleled views of the city. On to see the booming former expo site and ate at a tremendous codfish restaurant before dropping us off in the shopping district. Don't let me forget the best part: the custard pastries called Pasteis de Nata that he brought us. They were truly award-winning. Kudos to Rui.

Rui is a warm, knowledgeable and kind person. He is proud of his country and its history, which he generously shared with us. With his guidance and flexibility we were able to see three main sights of Sintra, visit Cape Roca and return to Lisbon along the coast! It was a full day and we really appreciate the extra time Rui took to make sure that we saw all that we had hoped to fit it!! Thank you Rui for a wonderful day and a special thanks for the delicious treat from Sintra!
