We had a great tour with Rui and would consider it a 5 out of 5. Rui gave us some great insights into Portugal culture and was very flexible on our trip. We would recommend him to others looking for an authentic experience in Portugal!

We had a wonderful time! Rui gave us so much information, not only at the sites we visited, but in the car on the way to each location. He was very honest about anything he didn't know (which wasn't very often!). There are only so many hours in the day, and Rui knows exactly how long it takes to get through each venue. Without him, we would have missed much more than we saw. The more info you give him the better he can tailor your experience. Rui is a true professional!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Next time, Moorish Castle it is! And Regaleira, of course; and with more info, I will be there again with the director this week and will learn a few more things, the ones which are not in the books :) It was a real pleasure meeting you all, Michelle! All the best

Rui was so flexible with us. It was a great tour in a very comfortable car with the coolest sunroof so you could look up and see the tops of the building. So personable and emailed us information after the tour that he had promised to send to us. A very quick way to see Lisbon but the information that we learned was perfect. If you get a chance to have Rui as a guide you will not be disappointed!!

We loved our Lisbon tour with Rui. His love of Lisbon is truly infectious and it was a wonderful way for us to be introduced to this beautiful city. We were able to touch upon almost every neighborhood during our tour with a few stops along the way for scenic views, the famous Pastéis de Belém, leisurely walks and a drink. Never feeling rushed, Rui left us alone at times simply requesting a text when we were ready to continue. Rui was VERY generous with his time and a delight to spend a 1/2 day with.

Tour: #387043, Private Sintra Palaces Tour, Lisbon, Lisboa, Portugal    view tour
Date: Dec 28/18

Rui drove us to Sintra in a comfortable car. He did not come into any of the palaces with us, so if you are looking for a skip the line tour where an informed guide takes you through, this in NOT the right one for you. This tour was more like having a friendly driver/companion who knows the area well. After Sintra, he took us to see his own weekend house and then also drove us through Cascais and Estoril on the way back to Lisbon. He was good company and we liked the flexibility.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Darcy, it was a pleasure meeting you and your husband. All the best

Rui meet us exactly ON TIME and was our guide for the day. He was concerned for our safety and comfort and did not rush us throughout the tour. "Just take your time and text when ready ". The tour gave us a glimpse of the old and new parts of Lisbon. Rui is passionate about his city and gave us insights that only a local can. Rui is warm, kind, compassionate, and very knowledgeable about his city. 5+ Rating for Rui (King) Obrigado !

Rui was very prompt. He spoke excellent English, was very courteous and respectful. He explained the history of the area and the palaces we visited. He did not go into the palaces with us and we really preferred that. We like to move at our own pace. He gave us options and were able to customize our trip. We spent a fabulous day with Rui. The best guide we have ever had. Sintra and the surrounding area are magnificent. Mutton obrigado, Rui. MB

We had a wonderful day in Lisbon with Rui as our guide. He was extremely informative, gave us a very thorough introduction to Lisbon and its history. He showed us places we would never have found on our own even after many days here and the tour was not rushed in any way. As a result, we have decided we must come back for a longer visit. Thank you Rui

Rui is a superb guide - he obviously loves his city and his country and is an expert on the complex history of Portugal and its important place in Europe. Rui provided many wonderful insights and even some surprises on our tour - many things that a similarly advertised tour had not provided for us. He made certain that the day was spent doing what we wanted to do and is very thoughtful and charming as well as incredibly knowledgeable. We can't wait to come back to tour with him again and learn more.

Our guide, Rui, was great. We booked him for a 6 hour tour around Lisbon to catch some of the city's must see sights. He picked us up from our hotel and drove us to locations while explaining everything we observed and answering our questions. We really appreciated his flexibility. When we came across something that we wanted to see that was not on the original itinerary, Rui was always accommodating. He also provided several recommendations for places to eat and drink after our trip.

Rui was very communicative and provided a great tour within the time parameters that we had for our early morning layover. We really felt like we saw all sides of Lisbon as well as getting a great history, geography, and current events lesson about Portugal. His vehicle was luxurious with an amazing panoramic sunroof which made it easy to see all the sights in comfort!

We had a wonderful day with Rui as our guide. We visited Sintra and the Pena Palace, had an enjoyable and relaxing lunch at Azenhas Do Mar overlooking the Praia, and then headed to Cabo Da Roca. Upon reaching Lisbon, we had a tour of the main points of interest. Rui was extremely professional, polite, and knowledgeable. His explanations were thorough and informative. We never felt pressured for time and he extended his maximum effort to make sure everyone had a great time. Thanks Rui for a great day.

Both my parents thoroughly enjoy their tour with Rui. He proved to be a very knowledgable and entertaining guide who took us to Sintra, Cascais and Estoril. He told them a great number of historical facts about Portugal and they learned a lot about the country and its people. Because of him they fell in love with the country and will certainly return for a second visit! Thank you Rui!!!
