Tour: #192389, Queluz and Mafra, Lisbon, Lisboa, Portugal    view tour
Date: Dec 15/18

If we could give this tour 10 stars, we would. Just an excellent day seeing the Palace of Queluz and the Mafra Palace. And we would give Paulo a 50 star rating for his knowledge of the two sites and an overview of the history of Portugal. You can certainly see the most popular sites in and around Lisbon and wait in long lines, but consider seeing Queluz and Mafra and you will see two stunning palaces and have the entire place almost to yourself. No crowds or difficulty finding a place to park!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Nancy & Bill von Rohr I will keep you in my mind and heart and wish you all the best for your future. You know...my door will stay open for you. Kind regards from Portugal Paulo C.

Fabulous tours organized by P. He really knew how to make the most of our time in the Algarve and organized the most important historical and cultural places to visit during our time in the Algarve. This was one of the best tours we have had with TBL, and highly recommend P. He was always on time always let us know where we were visiting the next day and organized us to make the most out of the time allotted to us. He recommended good restaurants with local flavors and helped us organize our departure!!

Paulo is an outstanding guide who is able to convey his knowledge of the sites visited in a meaningful and interesting way. He goes beyond the dry facts to breathe life into the history and the people who were part of that history. Queluz and Mafra are two hidden gems that should be on everyone's must see list when visiting Portugal, and nobody is better prepared to offer that experience than Paulo. He balanced our desire to linger in each room of the palaces with the need to balance our time.

Had a great day with Paulo! We learned about Lisbon and Portugal from the moment he picked us up to the moment the tour ended. We gained a greater perspective of Portugal's history as well as seeing monuments and local sights. His recommendation for lunch in a local food market was a good experience. Paulo's passion for Portugal is evident. I would highly recommend him!

We had a spectacular tour of Tomar, Alcobaça, and Batalha with Paulo. Driving from Lisbon through the beautiful Portugal countryside he gave interesting commentary along the way. Paulo led us through the amazing Convent of the Knights Templar and the Batalha and Alcobaça monasteries. Paulo's guided tours through these sights were excellent due his extensive knowledge and desire to share his insights with us. Paulo gives truly excellent tours of his beloved country, and we recommend him most highly.

Paulo provided us with a terrific tour from Lisbon to Évora and the surrounding area. His knowledge of the area is extensive and his commentary on the countryside was very interesting. We really enjoyed discussing life in Portugal as we drove. He knows Portugal very well, and showed us many sights in the Évora area that were unexpected and quite scenic. Paulo was very accommodating in including our specific interests in the tour. He is an excellent, knowledgeable guide and we recommend him very highly.

He was excited to show us Evora and his enthusiasm was contagious! Our boys are teenagers and they were enthralled by his descriptions and stories. He is genuine and kind.

We had 6 days in Lisbon with two other couples. Paulo was our guide for three days during that time. He is a superb guide. He drove us in his very comfortable van with microphone so we could all hear his narrative. He so knowledgeable about the history and culture of Portugal. He had a special talent for avoiding the major tourist crowds by timing our itinerary and taking us to out of the way places. We saw most of the usual sites but he gave us valuable insight into his proud culture as well.

I took this tour with my family of 4 which consisted of 2 history buff adult children. We all absorbed the knowledge that Paulo threw at us. He has vast experience and knowledge which we benefited from. We all recommend Paulo for this tour. I am 100% certain that all of his tours would be high quality. His van was also very comfortable.

We signed up for a 4 hour tour with Paulo and it was wonderful. He is warm and personable and a well of information. In the time we had, we not only visited some intereting sights, but got an education on Portuguese history, culture language and a dash of politics. The highlight of tour was the contextual understanding of Portugal and Lisbon that we took away with us. It makes us want to come back and explore both the city and the country more.

We highly recommend Paolo, not just for his flexibility, knowledge and good English, but because of his personal concern. My husband became very ill in Lisbon the day before this tour; upon reaching Porto, we dropped our bags, then Paolo took us to an Urgent Care Center and even wrote out instructions for a cab driver to return us to our Porto base.

If anyone is visiting Lisbon and is thinking about visiting areas outside of the city, Tours by Locals and specifically Paulo come highly recommend from our group of six. Thank you for a wonderful experience. Sabina

Phenomenal - Paulo C - goes far beyond that of a tour guide - extremely knowledgeable about Lisbon, Sinta, castles, palaces - etc. if you don't book him YOU are making a big mistake!! I use TBLs almost exclusively and haven't had a bad your yet!

We had a great day seeing Lisbon with Paulo. He had a fantastic knowledge of this beautiful city and so many other things. It was a great day of touring and we appreciated seeing things that we would have missed without a private guide. I would recommend Paulo to anyone looking for an excellent guide. Although we used Paulo to show us Lisbon, I would trust that he can guide most places in Portugual as he has lived in so many areas and been a guide for 28 years.

Paolo was an excellent guide on our Lisbon visit. He brought his city to life for us with his expertise of the history of the city and region and we can recommend him very highly. We would definitely contact him when we return to Lisbon.

Paulo is a superbly gifted tour guide who made our visit to Lisbon very special. We would never have been able to see so much in such a short period of time without him. He is extremely knowledgeable, speaks excellent English and was very kind to us, making sure that we enjoyed our visit, right down to introducing us to the best custard pastries in the city. We cannot recommend Paulo more highly. You can book his services knowing that you are going to be in the hands of a true professional.

I can't say enough good things about Paulo. He was quick to respond to any inquiry prior to our tour. We listened to his advice; he certainly steered us right. His driving in and out of Lisbon was very good. His knowledge was excellent! He was pleasant, easy going and very flexible. We saw so much on our tour that we never would have been able to do on our own! We loved Lisbon, but this tour made it extra special!

Paulo knows Lisbon. He did a tour of the city using his car which is very necessary. Lisbon is not a great walking city to see the important sites. He is very knowledgable about the history of Lisbon and Portugal. Great personality and a real pleasure to be with. We would use him again.

Paulo was superior in every way! From his vehicle to his knowledge on so many times, we felt very well taken care of. He made sure that we had the tour that we wanted and he customized it perfectly. We learned so much about his beautiful country and want to return to see and enjoy more. Thanks for giving us one of our favorite days of our trip!

This was the second of three days we had with Paulo and he, again, exceeded our expectations. He switched days around because of weather and it worked. Got to Tomar early ahead of big tour groups. A wonderful site. Paulo even made sure that we got the senior rate. We were early so Paulo even stopped by Fatima to allow us to see that site. Then on to Sintra and even were able to stop and see the westernmost point of land in Europe.

Paulo is an excellent guide. He is extremely knowledgeable as well as an excellent driver. He drove the six of us ( ( three couples ) for an entire day. He was punctual and spoke excellent English. I highly recommend him, you won't be disappointed! So glad we booked him instead of the cruise ship's tour. We saw so much more and learned so much about Portugal. And, he will get you back to the ship before departure time.

An excellent Lisbon tour with Paulo C. He was punctual, polite and had a vast knowledge in all the subjects we were interested in. It shows that he truly likes his profession with 28 years of experience. We felt we were in good hands and safe while driving around the tiny streets in Lisbon and totally recommend this 4-hour tour with Paulo. Advice: book early, he is very popular.
