We had such a wonderful time touring Lisbon with Rui. His knowledge of the city and the country and its history was amazing and made the tour fascinating. His added knowledge of America and its history made for a great conversation on topics of both past and current. At the end of the tour he recommended a lunch spot that was a great place away from the crowds and had the local feel in both atmosphere and menu.
