There are just not enough superlatives to describe our experience with João. Fabulous, fantastic, amazing, incredible. I could go on and on. We were with João for 2 days, one for a tour of Lisbon and one for a tour of Sintra. His friendliness and enthusiasm made our first visit to Portugal very memorable. We now consider him a friend. We simply loved every minute of our experience with him. Highly recommend!!

Joao was a great way to start out our 14 day trip through Europe. He has a great , very welcoming personality. He made us feel like we were part of his family! We got a great feel for Lisbon, a wealth of local information, visited some beautiful sites, and a great out of the way authentic place to eat for lunch. Joao was on time, he delivered on all that he said,and while we had several tours with other guides throughout Europe, no one topped Joao's personality. Thanks, Joao for such an awesome time!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Andrea, Thanks so much for your wonderful review. I'm so honored to had the chance to take on tour I'm my beloved Lisboa. Was a memorable day and I will not forget, even the rain day was funny. I wish you all the best, obrigado João

Five stars aren't enough!!! Joao took 5 strangers on a "magical" day in gorgeous Lisbon & turned us into 6 friends. From vistas overlooking the City & River, to cathedrals, to Pasteis de Belem (OMG!), to tile museum, to quaint dinner in Alfama with fado, we had the perfect 8 hr day in this city, wanting more time than cruise stop allowed. Joao showed off Lisbon with pride and incredible knowledge. When I come back (& I will) to Portugal, Joao will be my guide again! The single BEST travel day of my life!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear M. Frances Daniel First of all I don't have words to thank you just amazing review. Was such a great afternoon I had with you and your friends. Was more than perfect! Why? Because your request was unique, so were the solutions for run it smoothly. And with luckily, we had one of the best tours of my life. I will never forget it, really. Thanks so much for giving me the opportunity to share my Lisbon with you and your beautiful friends. I hope to see you again só we can repeat everything again :)

We only had a half day with João and asked to see some high points and, most importantly, show us the "feel" of Lisbon. He was perfect! He was fun, flexible, knowledgeable, helpful and a great companion. He also knows where all the best local food is! You will not find a more enjoyable guide anywhere!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mrs Ann and Sir Joe Thanks so much for for your wonderful review. I really really enjoyed our day and off course you. I'm happy you had a sense of local Lisbon and local taste. Hope to have the privilege to tour you again. Big kiss and big hugs João

If you are looking for an articulate, engaged and engaging guide, look no further! João gives you both the highlights of Portugal along with unknown and untrampled spots. He is as knowledgeable and charming as they come.
