Sara was excellent. She had great knowledge of the history of the area and showed us all the things we wanted to see. She took us to a wonderful restaurant off the beaten path that was perfect for lunch. We had a relaxing but informative day with her and if in the Lisbon area would not hesitate to ask for her again.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the great review! It was a true pleasure spending the day with you. I wish you all the best!

Sara is a world class guide. We have never had one better, and that is after having vetted over fifty. This is an excellent trip to experience the depth of Portuguese culture, history and faith. Obidos is a wonderful hilltop town dating back to Roman times. Nazare shows Portuguese, not tourist/trendy, beach culture. And Fatima is one of the greatest pilgrimage sites in all of Christendom. Sara drives her own car and provides deeply knowledgable commentary. Don't miss this tour!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am so happy you enjoyed this much my country and my work. It was a real pleasure meeting you and Darlene! If you ever come back to Portugal, let me know!

Over the years we have had perhaps fifty different guides in many places throughout the world. Sara P. may be the best guide we have ever had. She has a voluminous knowledge of Portugal and its history, which she shares conversationally and concisely. She drives her own very comfortable car, and guides while driving through the city or countryside. This particular tour exploring Sintra and the rugged coast north of Lisbon, was filled with beautiful vistas and Sara's enriching commentary.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your kind words! Being able to share with you my knowledge and my country was fantastic! I wish you and Darlene the very best.

Sara is an outstanding professional tour guide. Her knowledge of culture, history, and the local areas around Sintra made for a pleasant and comprehensive visit to Pena Palace. We avoided the crowds by arriving early and she kept us ahead of them for the entire tour. She is a careful driver and knows how to avoid traffic delays, and took us to a delicious local lunch spot. Sara was very personable and approached every situation not only with flexibility, but with a focus on our full enjoyment of our tour.

I have hired private guides all over the world and Sara is one of the very best. Excellent pre-trip communication, punctual, perfect spoken English and a delightful and engaging personality. Very knowledgeable about local history, geography and politics. Even heavy rains on the walk didn't dampen her spirits. Don't hesitate to hire her. If she is not available on your day of travel, change your travel plans!

Sara was superb. Was the perfect day. We spent just the correct amount of time in the various towns and sites. Ample time for shopping. A terrific lunch of fresh fish in Ericeira. Could not ask for a better day. Got sufficient history to supplement our knowledge of the country and its government. It would be impossible to write a better script for our day! Sara should be commended for the job she did.

Wonderful driving tour with Sara - she was a wonderful guide with profoundly deep knowledge about Portugal in all dimensions. She strategically timed each part of the tour so we could enjoy at a time when the mass s of other tourist hadn't gotten there yet. Eg a pleasure to walk though Pena Palace before everybody else got there! Greatly recommended to go with Sara!

Sara provided a thorough, informative, delightful overview of Lisbon in our full day tour. Her knowledge of the history, geography, artistic and social environment was impressive. Her skilled driving, navigation, and parking took us easily throughout the city and the neighboring Belem neighborhood. Her friendly easy manner made spending the day not only informative but pleasureable. We especially appreciated her willingness to thoughtfully answer our many questions about culture and society. A gem!

This was a treat. We started with a TRAM tour though some neighborhoods, then jumped off to walk and learn some history and get a flavour for the people of Lisbon. We then hopped on a modern tram to get to Belem. Felt like a real local! Sarah is easy-going, and really knows her history of her country. She got us "front-of-the-line" to sample some pasteis de Belem as well. So much fun--and Tram 28 was really cool! It felt like I had a sister in Lisbon taking me around. Recommended!

I wish that we had an option to give Sara more than five stars. She deserves ten! We had a great time visiting the Lisbon area and that included a local lunch in a typical restaurant. She's very professional and a wonderful person. We left a new friend in Lisbon for future visits. We definitely recommend Sara as your tour guide in Lisbon.

This was day 2 of my tour with Sarah, and she gave a very good and concise tour of Sintra and Lisbon. She even accommodated our request for piri-piri chicken, and gave us a bonus with a visit to Cascais, a coastal area/town. When we went to Jeronimo monastery, there was a long queue, but because she has the know how as well as a licensed guide, we were able to get in faster versus individual travellers. She also made her way to get us the best pastel the nata in town. Thanks for the wonderful tour Sarah

This was a great tour, Tomar was amazing (especially those who have a strong interest in Knights of the Templar), and Batalha as well as the visit to Fatima were equally nice. Sarah was a great guide, understanding of my 71 year old aunt, and she makes sure she is comfortable (i.e. getting the car for us and parking as close as we can), and she also included additional spots in the visit (i.e. house of the shepherds). Very happy and satisfied with the tour, highly recommend it!

We loved this tour; it was like traveling with an english-speaking Portuguese friend. Sara met us right on time at the hotel, with a big, beautiful smile, and we took right off, seeing and visiting many sites in Lisbon and Sintra. She was attentive to what would make the trip best for us, by asking us directly and just figuring out who we were and what we would particularly enjoy. With only a day to spend on sightseeing, we don't think we could have done any better. Thank you Sara.

Sara's English is nearly perfect. She has extensive knowledge of Lisbon and the surrounding areas. On her Sintra tour she was able to avoid the body crush which is normal for the National Palace of Pena by proper timing of the tour. Knowledge of the back roads in the Sintra area allowed us to avoid sitting in traffic which is typically up to a 60 minute delay when leaving Sintra. Her vehicle is a large 4 door sedan and is perfectly suited for 2 or 3 passengers. Book Sara's tours for a stress free day.
