Augusto certainly has the passion to share the history and places of his home town. You can see his eyes light up when he explains everything. His english is perfect and his knowledge is amazing. We had a good day, thanks Augusto

We shared the most wonderful day in Lisbon with Augusto! He is so knowledgeable, sweet and buttoned up. He arrived on time, took us to so many wonderful sites, explained the history of Portugal and Lisbon, shared his culture, and helped us get great photos along the way. We were in such good hands all day and highly recommend spending a day with Augusto!
Alice McCoyUnited States
Augusto was the perfect guide. He was prompt knowledgeable and planned the day efficiently and adapted to our wishes. We enjoyed spending every minute of the day with him listening to his comments and feeling comfortable in his car and his safe driving skills. We are already planning our next tour with him.
Laurie KatzUnited States
This was my second tour with Gus and he was as informative as he was on the first tour! On both tours he was prompt, courteous, and knowledgeable. I highly recommend him for this or any other tour. As for the palace, it was beautiful, and it was nice to have a free hour to see the town of Sintra.
George K.Raleigh, NC, United States
Our group of five had a magnificent day with Augusto. He was the consummate professional...prompt, entertaining and doing everything possible to maximize our exposure to Lisbon and history of Portugal. His obvious pride in his city and his country gave us added affection for both, and his skill in shortcutting traffic and lines enabled us to see and do many memorable things in a fairly short time. We applaud him and his excellent service and we give him our highest recommendation. Many thanks, Augusto!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear George, you were part of it, you were with me from start to finish, thank you very much! Kindest regards, Augusto

It was a great trip out to Sintra. Augusto was great getting us up to the Pena Palace. Once we reached the town of Sintra we had to go to the Palace by taxi (3 Euros) what a great site. Checking with others on board the ship, no one made it up to the palace. Being a local makes all the difference. August has a excellent knowledge of the history of Sintra and Lisbon. Everywhere he would give us a history lesson. Always nice to use a small van so that we could go places large buses can't.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Virginia Aldrich, thanks for your review. That's right, according to the fire precaution we had to find an alternative plan and we kept the 5 stars experience on that day, you were part of it. Kindest regards, Augusto
Scott HunterUnited States
Outstanding tour. Augusto is a brilliant and professional guide. He truly made every effort to deliver an incredible tour. His automobile was immaculate, new and very comfortable. He navigated our day based on his knowledge of crowds which meant we never waited more than 5 minutes at sites and restaurants. He is extremely polite and respectful. Augusto provided information and stories that made our day like a puzzle. He kept building the tour each day, ending as a complete puzzle. Highly recommend!
Thomas FrosinaUnited States
Excellent tour and guide. Got to really understand the area, history and local flavor. Great way to start your stay in Lisbon!
Michael ButlerUnited States
Augustin is everything you want in a guide. He was prompt, his vehicle was comfortable and clean, and he has a tremendous knowledge of history. He was flexible in shifting our tour to focus less on downtown Lisbon so we could spend more time in Sintra and Belem. Moreover, he took us to a fabulous local mercado for a great lunch. My entire family learned a great deal and had fun. You can trust Augustin to take care of you. I would gladly enlist his support when we do return to Portugal.

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.
Carole M.United States
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.
Peter KrossUnited States
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!
Alberto Leonel de CervantesMexico
Augusto is a real expert guide and a friendly companion. He is very knowledgeable about the place, its history and the necessary facts and details to help people to better get the picture of a city with such a rich history and heritage. We strongly recommend Augusto.
John T.United States
Outstanding. Very personable and flexible. Offered suggestions and could answer all our questions. Would definitely use Gus again. Outstanding
Allen SvecHenderson, NV, United States
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.
Carl GersonUnited States
Fantastic tour with a fantastic guide. Augusto was able to pivot seamlessly to both our requests and the changes required by unforeseen events around the areas we were visiting. Very knowledgeable about the history of all the sites we visited!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Carl, thanks for this review about our tour today! Really appreciate your time! Have fun up North, Douro is beautiful! Cheers, Augusto
Alma FrankelUnited States
Augusto was a charming professional who showed us the beauty of Lisbon, Belém, and CaisCais. We saw so many historic wonders and monuments. He explained everything in fluent English and we would definitely recommend Augusto to everyone. He taught us a lot in one day and facilitated the travel and learning of this wonderful country. Thank you!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Alma, thanks for the "charming professional", i will take it! That's right, we spent some fun time together. Cheers, Augusto
Shelli BrienUnited States
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.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Shelli Brien, i am very thankful for your kind and positive words! Let's keep the ball rolling!
Augusto is a very enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide. He knows the good spots to see and the non-touristy places to eat. My suggestion: take some time before you take off to share your interests and preferences with Augusto. You will have a wonderful experience.

Michael SeigleUnited States
Augusto was a very interesting, enthusiastic and energetic tour guide. We would not hesitate using his services again and would recommend his expertise to any future travellers and would tour again with him. He took us to the promised places and pointed out some very historical sites. He picked us up on time as promised at our ship port.

What a terrific tour of Sinatra and the Pena Palace! Our guide, Augusto, was very knowledgeable and kept everything moving to maximize the day for us! Highly recommend him for tours in the area!
John R.St. Simons Island, GA, United States
Our day with Augusto was the highlight of our trip to Lisbon. He is very knowledgeable in the history and architecture of Lisbon and was a pleasure to be with for the day. If I ever return to Portugal, Augusto would be my first call as I would like to see more of the country with him as my guide. I highly recommend Augusto.
Augusto was a fun guide. 5 out of 5. Clients will be VERY satisfied.
Virginia KeatorUnited States

Jason W.Los Angeles, CA, United States
There is so much to do and see in and around Lisbon and after a day with Augusto you feel you have touched every part and have a great sense of the city and all of its different areas. This was the perfect way to spend our first day in Lisbon as it positioned us to be able to decide how we wanted to spend the rest of our time. Augusto is knowledgeable, enthusiastic and a great guy.
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.
