Not outstanding but very nice. We would do it again. she took us on a good ride around the area with a few stops. She tried to accommodate our request as best she could.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind comment, for considering a nice tour despite of being a hard day , having my mother hospitalized without getting news on her status ( she just entered the hospital early that morning). I am glad you appreciated that and I wish I could have been at 100% to provide you with a great and memorable experience of my hometown. Going to Sintra did not help much for we were not able to appreciate this former King resort due to parking limitations. I wish you a great time in Portugal! Carla

We were 7 in our group and all first time travelers to Portugal. We all enjoyed Carla's tour very much! Carla is very knowledgeable about Portugal's history and her insights made the tour very interesting. We liked that she talked about the areas we were driving through and chose stops that were significant to the city and some with excellent vistas. Her pacing was good, allowing us to appreciate what Lisbon had to offer and to return to the areas we found most interesting in the following days.

Carla is an excellent tour guide. She met us at our hotel at the assigned time and proceeded to take us around the city, sharing her knowledge of the history of Lisbon. No matter what we asked, Carla knew the answer. Our party of four adults comfortably traveled in her van. She did not rush us as we wandered in the shops or gazed from the overlooks. I recommend her to other tourists who wish a comprehensive survey of Lisbon's highlights.

Very enjoyable trip of Lisbon right off a flight from the US. She was so knowledgeable about both history and culture so that we would not have had the same experience of Lisbon without her. She was savvy about traffic and crowds so compared to a tour we took last year, we were impressed by the new things we learned.

Carla was our booking agent and the booking experience went fine. To ensure all was set up for the class, I initiated texting with Carla the day before to validate the meeting place and time We arrived at the booking time of 10:30. The chef haas not arrived. I started texting and calling Carla without any response. I was writing an email to indicate default of contract after 1 hour of waiting when the chef arrived at 11:30. That was the time she was told to arrive. Finally, at 11:50 Carla called.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear David, I fully assume the mistake of the confusion with the meeting time and for not beeing available at the mobile. You have always requested 10h30 and that was the time of your booking but I forgot to correct it with the Chef. Fortunatelly these situations seldom happen with me, but this time I was not carefull about should have re-checked again. I was not available for personal reasons as previously explained. Again I failed not having given the Chef`s mobile as well. I apreciate your patience and

We are a couple from India and were visiting Lisbon for a conference in late July 12. Hired Carla for a personalized tour of Lisbon and Sintra. Carla is very passionate tour guide. Her English is very good. She has studied for 4 years to earn a guide license. As a result, she had answers for almost anything we asked. We were mainly interested in culture, history and food. She took us to a very nice local seafood restaurant not visited by tourists. I would hire her again without a second thought!

Carla was a wonderful guide. Our tour was originally arranged by Gloria but she had to cancel and arranged for Carla to take her place. She was very knowledgeable and spent just the right amount of time (for us) on the different sights. Carla was flexible and adjusted the tour to our interests. She took us through the Old Town in areas we would have been unlikely to discover on our own. We also stopped at a local cafe that she knew for some light refreshments. We thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Arnold, Thank you so much for your kind comments. Accept my warm regards. Carla C.

TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: Our guides in Lisbon are a wonderful team and work together in the case where a substitution is unavoidable.

I arranged a tour to Fatima with Carla. She was knowledgable and very friendly. We customized our tour by only going to Fatima. Carla was present to answer questions and also allowed us time to do whatever we wanted there. She also picked out a very good restaurant for us to have lunch.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mr and Mrs DelGiudice, I am grateful for your comment given to Toursbylocals. We were fortunate to go to Fátima in a quite day. In such a relaxed and peaceful atmosphere we could see the most important sites there; Apparitions Chapel, Basilica, Loca do Anjo, Houses of the Little Shepherds and the Well of Lucia`s House. Thank you for this day. Accept my best compliments. Carla C.

Carla is the best! She is a knowledgeable, fun guide. She insured that we saw all the most important sites of Lisbon in a 4 hour excursion. She explained the historical significance of all the monuments we saw, and her historical references were invaluable to us on our first visit to Lisbon. At the end of the tour she guided us to a charming restaurant in the Alfama. We had a truly memorable time. We fell in love with Lisbon and with Carla. An incredible day! Thank You, Carla!

Our tour of Lisbon with Carla was the highlight of our trip to Spain & Portugal. She was waiting for us when we docked and gave us a fabulous full day tour of Lisbon and surrounding areas and returned us to our ship in the evening. Her English is excellent as is her driving skills. I wish we had scheduled other tours with Tours by Locals in our other ports. Carla's tour was so much better than the others we booked through the cruise line in our other ports. Carla is an excellent guide. A+++
