We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Augusto. He was pleasant, knowledgeable and flexible. With six adults in the van with him (including four seniors), it was a little cramped, especially in the back seat. But having a guide with local knowledge made all the difference. We have looked forward to this tour for a long time and it exceeded our expectations.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Winston Villagonzalo, thank you for your words and rating. I really appreciated! I also enjoy the tour very much. Kindest regards, Augusto

Absolutely a phenomenal tour. Augusto provided a professional and informative tour. He schedule our day around the busy times at each stop. We never wasted any time at any stop. He was very respectful our time at Fatima and allowed us private time to pray and spend as much time as we wanted. This whole tour is one incredible stop after another. Strongly recommend this tour.

Loved the trip of Knights Templar sites. Augusto is extremely articulate in English. Knowledgeable of history, art and architecture. Polite and sensitive to our needs. Very proud of Portuguese history and culture which he conveyed giving us a clear picture of the past that leads to the present. Understood our interests and designed the tour to meet the same. Organized the time and schedule to avoid crowds/delays to maximize our time at attractions.
We had a really nice & relaxing tour, Augusto was an excellent tour guide and his local knowledge helped us to maximise our short time in Lisbon, his choice of restaurants and expert advice were great.

Augusto is such a professional guide. He is extremely knowledgeable about Portugal's history and culture. He made sure that we were able to see all the sights (including extras) that we requested.

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

Sue WeiermanUnited States
By reading the reviews, we knew we had a super tour guide -- and Augusto was indeed wonderful. The tour to Fatima was very special and actually a little emotional for us as we sensed the sweet, sacred setting of the Sanctuary. The Monastery at Batalha was quite beautiful. Lunch in Nazare was splendid, and we especially enjoyed the golden-eyed red snapper! The experiences of the entire day were quite memorable and we thank Augusto for leading us through the perfect day!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Sue, yes, we all made it very special. Your kindness is remarkable. Thank you so much. Augusto

This was the best tour. I was travelling with my wife and two year old daughter. Augusto quickly arranged a car seat and managed the tour to our liking. Augusto's explanations were great, our conversations of Portugal's history and others were very fruitful. His tour really showed what Portugal is all about, he finds gems in all the places we visited. I would go again and again to Portugal, and always look for Augusto's tour. Truly recommend, we cannot thank him enough for all his attentions.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Raul, Ana and the little one, thank you very much for your kind words. All the best for all the family. Kindest regards from Lisbon, Augusto

Augusto is an awesome guide/driver...very personable, extremely responsive to requests, and familiar with fantastic off-the-beaten path restaurants and sites that you wouldn't see on other tours. We felt very safe with him behind the wheel in his clean and comfortable van. You won't go wrong with Augusto!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Lynn Bell, thank you so much for your kind words. We had two great days! Kindest regards, Augusto
Jackie PradkoUnited States
Augusto is a fabulous guide! We visited four towns with him. His pleasant style made you feel like you were touring with an old friend yet his knowledge of the areas taught us so much and let us know that he is a true professional. He was always flexible if we wanted to look in a store or take a few more photos. The seafood restaurant in Nazare was wonderful. Our trip to Portugual was definitely much enhanced because of our time with Augusto. I will definitely use him again. He is highly recommended!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jackie, thank you very much for your words, very kind! As you know I am always ready for the next tour. Kindest regards, Augusto

Cheryll MoreyUnited States
Augusto was great! He arrived early which was appreciated. He was very pleasant and all 4 of us enjoyed his sense of humor. His knowledge of the area was excellent and he was good at being attentive to make sure each of us heard him. His vehicle was comfortable and he was a very good driver. Our lunch at a very small restaurant in Nazare was delicious and we enjoyed meeting owner and his wife. Excellent day - even though we had some rain.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Cheryll Morey, Thank you very much for your review. It was a great day with very nice and very pleasant people. See you next time. Kind regards, Augusto
