Silvia was very helpful for the 4 of us in this tour. She is extremely nice and passionate with her work, and you can feel it. Silvia helps you to understand very easily the city and its culture. In 4 hours we got a very comprehensive idea of Lisbon. If you will do the tour using her car is really very comfortable.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Salvador, I'm very happy that you have enjoyed the tour and the city. Thank you so much for your comment :)

Tour: #240792, Lisbon with the statue of Christ the King, Lisbon, Lisboa, Portugal    view tour
Date: May 28/18

I took a 4 hour car tour with Silvia. Her brief was to collect me at the airport, to visit the sanctuary of Christ the King, pick up some pastels of Belem and view some other sights on the way back to the airport. She was amazing, we visited both the new and old parts of Lisbon, Fascinating hidden places that a tourist would never discover together with the more well known sights. She is absolutely charming and her knowledge of Lisbon is is outstanding. A truly memorable experience.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Oh Philip thank you so much. I enjoyed so much our tour and your company, was great, seam like we were old friends discovering Lisbon. :) Muito Obrigada

Sylvia was a perfect guide for us. A walking tour that took us from a small, old neighborhood of the city to the city center. We covered so much ground walking the around of the city center. She introduced us to Fada music, delicious sweet and savory Portuguese specialties. Sylvia speaks perfect English as well as several other languages. You'll be in very good company with Slyvia as your personal guide in Lisobon. Highly recommended!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Anne for your kind words. I'm so happy that you enjoyed the tour and discovered a little more about Lisbon :)

Having at guide like Silvia makes the tour of Sintra and the castle so much more meaningful and stress free. She made sure we arrived early to miss the several hundred person line that existed when we left. She also made sure we tasted the special treats Sintra is known for. The drive along Portugal's coastline and lunch in Cascais is quite beautiful and fun. Silvia is easy and fun to travel with.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks William for your kind words. I hope you and your wife have enjoyed the days in Portugal. Regards

Silvia makes you feel like you are a family member. She has a friendly countenance, loves Portugal and wants to make sure you get to experience it. The walking tour gives you a in depth look of Lisbon. The old part is not to be missed, the winding streets cheating the hills by using funiculars and elevators.

Silvia was excellent. She was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. She is a wonderful supporter of Lisbon and makes you want to come back! She looked after us very well as we were quite tired from a long day and needed to go slowly and avoid some of the very steep parts of the city. Would highly recommend her.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Dorothy for your kind words, they are so important to me and made my day!!! I hope you are enjoying the city :)

Silvia was brilliant. We asked her to find historic connections about the conquest by the Portuguese of our home port Malacca and she didnt disappoint. She did her homework and found a number of sites for us to visit including checking with local bookshops and historians. We had a great day, got what we were looking for and learnt a lot about her town of Lisbon. Very passionate, knowledgable and definitely someone to book for a tour here. Highly recommended.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi M Faiz, I hope you had a wonderful new's eve in Lisbon and return safe home. Thanks so much for your words, as I said this is one of the most interesting thinks about working as a guide, we never know everything and we are always learning :) Thanks for thrust me and challenge me, was really a pleasure :)

Silvia's tour was everything I hoped it would be! We had a 4 hour tour of areas we would not be seeing on our Viking Tour the next morning. Four people (in our group of 6) had just flown into Lisbon and Silvia's tour was a great introduction to several areas of the city. We had communicated with her ahead of time to determine where we would visit. We had a tram ride and a pastry, and saw many things we would have missed without a guide!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Sandy, I'm delighted that you and your friends enjoyed the tour and the city of my heart. Thank you so much!

Silvia is the kind of person you like immediately upon meeting so I'm sure our group would have given her five stars even if the tour had been less than impressive, but in fact our tour was absolutely splendid! She met us promptly at the airport with private mini-bus waiting and proved herself both flexible and quick thinking when we presented her with an unforeseen snag: one person's arrival was delayed by a few hours. She had no trouble working around this and modifying our itinerary on the fly.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Gian for your lovely words. it was a real pleasure to me you and your group. I hope to see you again :)

Rhis was our second day with Silvia and she filled it with much more than we expected. We started early to Sintra, stopped a few times on the way back, enjoyed seeing the beachside towns and finished with a further look at Lisbon. This was a wonderful overview of a vibrant, beautiful and proud city, and Silvia gave us great insight into the history and culture of her beloved country and city. She's a pleasure to be with, an excellent driver and we hated to let her go by the day's end. Thanks, Silvia!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi James and Leslie, what can I say?? There's no words to thank you for your adorable comments. It was a real pleasure for me to accompany you in this journey to discover Lisbon and the surroundings. I think you could see how enthusiastic I'm about my history and culture. James already knew a little of Lisbon, but what I really enjoyed was realizing that it had been a pleasant surprise to Leslie :) That was amazing. Keep enjoying your vacations. Muito Obrigada e até breve :)

We arrived in Lisbon on a national holiday so, with vehicular traffic limited, Silvia suggested a walking tour. It was the perfect introduction to this beautiful and vibrant city. Silvia was knowledgeable, pleasant, and very flexible to our preferences. She was also wonderfully patient when we discovered a shop we found difficult to leave. We recommend this tour for those with limited time or for anyone wishing only to get a taste of Lisbon, And we recommend Silvia as a 5-star guide.
