Rui is an exceptional guide and host. His vast knowledge of the sites we toured was interesting and informative. We would recommend him to everyone visiting Lisbon and Sintra.

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 a true gentleman. He is well informed, easily shares the details of his knowledge and does everything he can to assure his clients a wonderful and informative tour. We consider ourselves lucky to have had his guidance
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!

Many thanks Rui for a very informative and entertaining day. You struck the perfect balance with sharing the right amount of information, being there to answer all our questions and giving us time to explore and take in the beautiful places you picked to take us. We were very fortunate to have you as our guide and we greatly enjoyed our tour with you.

Darcy McCullochUnited States
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 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
