Marta was excellent. Great history of Lisbon and the present changes. Breakfast and lunch were great examples of local cuisine. (good we did not eat breakfast at the hotel). If you have time for only one tour, this should be it

We had a wonderful afternoon with Marta. Three of us enjoyed wandering through the neighborhoods soaking in all the tidbits Marta shared, from the current political and cultural climate to Lisbon's rich history. There wasn't a question she couldn't answer. The tour was customized for us as we told her we planned to make the tastings be our lunch. We meandered through the neighborhoods and ended up at the Time Out Market where we got to try cod cakes and local wines. All delicious. A highlight of the trip!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Susan, mum and cousin you were simply fantastic! My ToursbyLocals #100 travellers! It was truly delightful having met you... it was a wonderful afternoon, a real pleasure. Thank you for sharing a bit of your time with me and letting me be part of your adventure in Portugal :) All the best
I really enjoyed this tour, which was informative and yet relaxed and fun. You get to see some of the city's hidden treasures, learn a little of its rich history, and sample some delicious food. Marta is a wonderful guide, and I recommend her highly. Definitely one of the highlights of my holiday.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for the kind words, Nicholas :) I feel very happy to know you had a great time! It was a wonderful afternoon for me too! It was a pleasure to have met you. PS - the weather is still not very Portuguese, unfortunately...

Marta was very knowledgeable, as well as being very personable. We learned a lot but she made it fun. We also had a chance to learn about current Portuguese issues, and the way it impacts typical Portuguese families. Marta epitomizes what "Tours by Locals" wants to offer to their customers.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Marjorie, it was simply a pleasure to spend the afternoon with such a wonderful couple :) Thank you so much for your kind words and hope we can meet again in a near future :) I'm very grateful! Regards from Lisbon

Marta went over-and-above the call of duty with her tour for us and treated us like she was showing around friends. We loved her!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: So now that you've tasted the true friendship between Portuguese and English, you know why it's one of the worlds's oldest alliances :) You're both great people with big hearts and I just an feel honoured to have met you...!

My husband said he wished we could have her showing us around every day of our trip! Highly recommend a tour with Marta for anyone visiting Lisbon.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: May I...? :) You're such a beautiful couple and easy to spend time with! I had a great morning, truly! I feel very grateful with your words. I wish you the most wonderful stay...! Keep warm!
