We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Marta of Belém Tower, Jerome monastery and cathedral, and the monument to the Discoverers. The sweet finish was a delicious stop for the special Belém pasteis da nata. Marta was welcoming with interesting and informative explanations that brought the history of the Belém area alive.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Sharon, I must say I had a great morning with you :) sharing a lot, feeling a lot grateful :) truly glad I was able to make your stay memorable! Obrigada for your kind words! Warm regards

We couldn't have asked for a better guide. I have been using tours by locals for many years, and Marta is by far one of he best tour guides we have had. She catered her tour to our needs exactly and was flexible in her approach. We were with our daughter, and Marta went out of her way to make her feel comfortable. Her knowledge is deep and she has a very pleasant demeanor. I highly recommend Marta for any of your in and around Lisbon needs.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you dear Joanne :) You have such an adorable family :) It was a true pleasure showing you the beauties of my city :) Hope to see you all back someday!

Marta responded promptly to all emails. I did not arrive in Lisbon for the tour but my wife had a perfect afternoon discovering Belem with Marta. Highly recommend this company and Marta.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Thomas and Naomi, I spent a marvellous afternoon too! Your wife is the sweetest person, appart from being totally well informed about my country and linking its history with other countrie's, allowing us to have a great conversation all the time, A true pleasure to be with someone so interested and knowledgeable :) Thank you. I was truly very sorry I didn't meet you,,, Regards to you both :)

Marta started off with some excellent historical background to give us the wider context before entering the church and monastery. Was also awesome to jump the massive entrance queue! From Vasco da Gama to Pasteis de Belem we were taken around the sights and felt almost privileged to be with her and learning about what we were seeing. I was only sorry we didnt have more time in Lisbon to do some more of the city with her. Couldn't recommend Marta more highly! thank you.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Christine and family, That's very generous of you :) It was a pleasure to show you my city! I simply loved spending the morning with you all. Looking forward to seeing you back in Lisbon! Warm regards

Marta was a fantastic tour guide. We were to do the Belem tour, but she notified us of a strike that closed Belem Tower and the Monastery. She provided alternative suggestions in real time and we ended up doing the Lisbon Upper Districts & Downtown tour. It was a great alternative with the sites being closed. She was very knowledgable, had a great sense of humor, and was able to keep the attention of our group that ranged from a 3rd grader to a senior citizen. Very highly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: With fantastic people like you everything would only go the best way possible! Truly delightful and grateful to meet you and your beautiful family :) I feel honoured you had a great time in Portugal :) Thank you so much for the warm words :) All the best and regards to you all

Marta was very flexible which is a major factor for us. We came from a cruise and we actually think we saw the most of Lisbon and Fatima for the 8 hours we booked. Great job Marta!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mrs. Lorna and her beautiful family, I really feel pleased I met such wonderful and nice family :) Thank you so much for the great day and for writing these kind words, it means a lot :) All the best from your new friend and this evening we're all Portuguese! GO PORTUGAL!!!!
