If It was possible to give a guide six stars instead of five, then that would be rating for Gloria. My wife and I just completed a walking tour of the city and wished it could have continued afor hours. More than just her knowledge and understanding of the history of Lisbon and Portugal, Gloria's love of Lisbon's culture,food, and lifestyle made spending time with her like being with a dear old friend. She so clearly loves what she does and it shows in everything she does...a first class experience!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you do much for your kind words. It was a true pleasure to meet you. Now you know where to find me and where to bring your family to.

We can't say enough about our amazing guide, Gloria. If you get a chance to tour with her, you won't be disappointed! Gloria showed us her beautiful city with the aide of a wonderful driver and we had a great day experiencing Lisbon. We especially loved the restaurant 5 Oceans, a seafood restaurant overlooking the marina and near the bridge built by the same company who constructed the Golden Gate Bridge. Gloria's excellent English and knowledge of history enhanced our perfect day. 10 Stars, Gloria!

I'd read a lot about Setubal and enjoyed exploring it with Gloria who lives nearby. She tailored it to our interests with e-mails prior to arriving in Portugal and later during the tour itself. We especially enjoyed the fish/fruit and vegetable market and the handmade tile "factory." Most of all, we enjoyed talking with Gloria, including at lunch at a special restaurant of hers. Don't pass on the chance to see an area off the usual tourist path with as charming and informative guide as Gloria.

Mafra is one of favourite hidden gems of Portugal. This beautiful city is less that one hour's drive from Lisbon. The gigantic UNESCO inscribed Mafra monastery is one the most amazing and remarkable architecture in Portugal. We also tried some local specialties and desserts at a local restaurant and pastry shop. Such amazing day cannot be done without Gloria's guidance and effort. She's definitely a five-star tour guide, I would even give her six stars if possible!

Gloria picked us up at our hotel for a half day tour of Sintra & Cascais. We had a wonderful day before with her exploring Lisbon (see other review), and this jaunt to the coast was equally great. The UNESCO town of Sintra was wonderful and is worthy of a trip by itself, but we needed to move on to the town of Cascais. Again, Gloria was able to bring the town to life with her knowledge of the area and her personality. We would highly recommend her if you are going to the Lisbon area.

We were 9 well traveled friends. Gloria was very easy to deal with start to finish. She has a wonderful personality and we'll educated. We always book individuals and I would certainly say that she was one of the best. We had a very nice small bus. She will be an excellent choice. She spoke excellent English plus 4 other languages. Thanks Gloria

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a delight to meet you. I'm happy that you enjoyed our tour. Hope to see you again. Regards.

Gloria was an absolute delight to be with. My husband and I travel around the world and always look for someone special to share their country with us. We had no idea that there was a college degree program in touring and because Gloria had her degree in tourism she had a wealth of historic facts to share with us as we toured. We are both professionals and my husband is a college professor. We were both very impressed. This was also a holiday day and Gloria got us through the streets before they closed.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind words. It's was such a pleasure to meet you. Hope you come back. Regards.

Gloria is an excellent guide. Her English is perfect, and she exerts maximum effort to make the tour interesting. She is very enthusiastic and likeable. My musician wife was interested in finding a store with sheet music by a Portugese woman composer. Gloria found it and took us there. We recommend her highly.

This was our second day with Gloria. Like yesterday, she arrived on time (actually early) and took us to Sintra and Cascais. She is very knowledgeable about both places. We saw the castle on the top of the hill in Sintra, which I recommend highly. Gloria knows everything there is to know about the place. Her great enthusiasm, and considerable driving skills, made the day a success despite fog and rain.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your comments. Hope to see you again

Gloria was just terrific! She picked us up at hotel downtown Lisbon right on time, and, within 5 minutes we felt like she was 'an old friend' taking us on a day trip to Sintra, etc. She did an excellent job of assisting us with picking and choosing various options within the time available, and, of driving while guiding/talking us through the loop to Cape Rock + along the coast back to Lisbon. We were very happy with the entire experience - thanks Gloria!!

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of Fatima and Lisbon that was given by Gloria. She is a knowledgeable and personable tour guide that brought an enthusiasm to the tour. Her knowledge of English was superb, so much so it is hard to believe she did not go to school in an English language country. We hope to return to Lisbon, and when we do we surely will use Gloria to continue our tour.

She is extremely knowledgeable, perceptive, understands all the nuances of the English language, is so enthusiastic about her work which makes the tour even more fun, and is just a wealth of interesting information. She also has a healthy sense of humor and just made us feel at home in her country.

Then we headed to a local tile maker for a private tour and on to Fonseca Vinyard for a tour and tasting. Gloria was very flexible in going where we wanted and always took my physical limitations into account. She is incredibly knowledgeable, wonderfully personable and just fun to be with. It was definitely a 5 star day.

I felt like the tour we took together was less a formal presentation of the country/city and more a casual tour amongst friends of the highlights of Lisbon. I only had a limited time in the city and can't imagine a better way to cram it all in. Would highly recommend to anyone, and when I do make it back to Lisbon would enjoy meeting again.
