Ines was the highlight in Portugal! This was our second day with her and we enjoyed it immensely! In a city full of history and hills, she managed to show and explain the whole city to us while minimizing the amount of walking, taking into consideration our age and physical limitations. Her English is perfect, so there were no language issues. It's clear she loves her job, city and country! My saddest moment was saying goodbye! I can recommend Ines without ANY hesitation!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Alan, thank you so much for your kind words! It is very rewarding to read reviews as yours after seeing your smiles and wows for two days! See you on your next trip to Portugal!

Outstanding tour and outstanding tour guide! Our group of 12 people absolutely loved Ines. Her knowledge of Lisbon and the history of Portugal was fantastic. We would recommend Ines and tours by locals to everyone.

From the moment she picked us up at the airport, until she deposited us there later the same day, Ines was an excellent guide. She loves showing you her city, which makes being with her extremely enjoyable. Ines is also very open to feedback along the way, giving you options and then letting you set the pace, pick places to go, etc. It was also wonderful that she was able to receive us on January 2nd, a day when most guides were still enjoying time off. I can't recommend Ines highly enough!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your review, John! It was my pleasure to have you and your family for a tour of Lisbon! I am happy that you had such a great time and will be glad to welcome you here again in our next visit!

Inez is an excellent guide - she provides a panoramic perspective of this beautiful city while sharing her vast, in-depth knowledge of its heritage. Seeing the vibrant history of the city through her eyes was a delight! She tailors her presentation and pace to the needs of the group and is responsive to requests for diversions and additional information. Her choice for our lunch restaurant was superb, allowing us to taste local cuisine. We highly recommend her and will use her next time we are here.

Ines is very knowledgeable about the sights and sounds of Lisbon. Her genuine enthusiasm and love of Lisbon came through in everything she did and said. She took time to explain, in fluent English, all that we were seeing in as much detail as we needed. Her personality is so outgoing and compassionate that to spend a day with Ines is to make a friend for life. We highly recommend ToursbyLocals and the only guide we would ever recommend is Ines V.

OMG!!!! Our day was perfect!!! Inez brought the right combination of history, local color, and knowledge of the culture of Lisbon, that we felt that we were part of the community! Anyone needing a guide should call her!!!

The tour was insightful and fun. My wife and I really thought it was great. I would highly recommend it to anyone.
Excellent guided tour from Anes. She is very professional, has an excellent knowledge of Lisbon and is passionate about her work. She knew how to make us love her city and its history. Its car is very comfortable, we were a group of 5 people. Bravo

We had a great day with Ines, she is so professional but at the same time she treated us (my wife, two teenager kids and me) as friends. We did the Special Lisbon/Private Mini Van tour. Having Ines with her van is great to move around Lisbon. We had a great dinner in a restaurant that Ines recommended us, by the way, she is very modest, her Spanish is advanced if not fluent, which we ended speaking with her since it is our first language. She knows exactly what she's talking about. Really recommend her.

Ines is a wealth of knowledge, very flexible with how the day progresses, and just a wonderful person to spend time with. Thank you for the 3 days of touring Ines!
Preston WaldropUnited States
Very worthwhile, we would have missed several of the highlights of Lisbon if we where not on this tour. Also learned more about Portuguese history in 6 hrs then I learned in the last 59 years!
Bill CohnUnited States
Inês was wonderful guide for our day in Lisbon. Inês is bright, enthusiastic, fun, and very knowledgeable about the Lisbon's sights, culture, and history. She approaches her job very professionally, yet at the same time it felt like we were with a good friend eager to entertain us and show us the best of her city. We look forward to using Inês again next time in Lisbon.

Ines Just a quick note to express Judy's and my sincere thanks for a wonderful tour of Lisbon. Your efforts have made our stay in Lisbon so much more enjoyable. Your knowledge and insights were so welcomed in helping us to understand the history of Portugal. We also appreciate your restaurant and food recommendations. We had a great meal at Sacramento and the custards were sensational. Again, many thanks.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Steve and Judy, thank you for putting your day in Lisbon in my hands. I also enjoyed the custard tarts hihihi! You'll always be welcome back :)

The guide did everything we wanted and more. Plans were clearly thought-out very well beforehand, and were adapted on the fly to suit our wishes. Entire journey was entertaining, relaxing, and informative. Truly impressive guide that I would definitely recommend to all visitors.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ben, Barbara and Andrew, thank you for putting your 3 days in Lisbon in my hands. Your kindness and interest made them very enjoyable. I hope we can meet again in the future!
Our family enjoyed a wonderful day touring Lisbon with Ines. She answered all our questions and was very knowledgable. This day tour is one that stands out in our minds as it was pur custom tour which included all the major sites of Lisbon as well as the Benfica soccer stadium. We toured the sites we chose at our pace. We didn't feel rushed. Ines was awesome with our children and we thought she was the best guide we had the pleasure of meeting. We highly recommend Ines.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Trevor and Julie, what a pleasure to read your review! I am so happy to have managed to customize the tour to your needs and expectations. It was great spending the day with you and your beautiful children. Who knows we will meet again one day if you or them come back to Portugal!
Keith B.Sandy, UTAH, United States
Loved the visits around the city. Ines is very knowledgeable of the Lisbon area. She went out of the way to make our experience special and to share her love of the city. Pastel de Belem (custard tart) was very tasty and she took us to what had to have been the best bakery in town. She makes each day memorable and each visit interesting. She is very punctual with fluent English and a professional manner and appearance.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Raye Anne, Raye Jean, Kim, Dawn and Stacy - I cannot express how wonderful it was to spend this memorable day in your company. I love showing my city and help you experience it. Hope you come back one day! :)

Ines is pleasant, helpful, well informed, flexible, accommodating, reliable, etc. but she was more than that - she was someone we enjoyed being with. Pat and I would recommend her strongly to anyone. We are experienced traelers and while big-ship cruises are not our favorite, we were on one stopping in Lisbon. Always use tours-by-locals rather than ship tours. so much more personal
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Gordon and Pat, thank you so much for your review. It was a pleasure to welcome you and your friends in Lisbon, and taking you to all the places you were so excited to see. I really enjoyed our day together. Thank you and who knows - until next time! :)
