We took three tours with Ines and I can truly say she was absolutely wonderful. Very knowledgeable about the history and moving around the town to beat the crowds. She moved at our pace and gave us options on what was a must do and what we could do without. Very friendly and fun to work with. Thanks Ines for everything - Charolett Hayes
Joanna StingrayUnited States
Inês is the absolute best tour guide for a tour of Lisbon! She is funny, so knowledgeable, very accommodating, and a great storyteller so that all the facts she tells you about the city come together in a coherent and exciting narrative that is easy to understand and remember. Definitely book her if she's available because her enthusiasm for the city is contagious and will make you love it that much more, so that you leave with the best impression and memories. And as a plus she's a foodie and dog lover!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Joanna, Madison and Kumar, Your words make me blush hahaha! Your satisfaction and enthusiasm for Lisbon help me to be sure I chose the right path in life! I felt we had a lot in common to share and I look forward to have you again!
Albert MoralesUnited States
Ines was fabulous. She is a font of knowledge about all things Lisbon. She showed us all around the town, educated us about its history, gave us recommendations about places to go and where to eat, and was accommodating about making the tour work around our desires and preferences. I highly recommend her.
Can not recommend this tour highly enough! Ines is the best guide ( no offense to the many great people we have met )we have come across in our 30 years of travels- she really rocks! Her itinerary is excellent but also flexible/ adaptable, she is fluent in a few languages, all her choices for lunch, snacks etc are top tier, the content she conveys is incredibly rich ( and I believe unique) and the way she does this is absolutely brilliant.. and above all she is a great person!
Wendy G.United States
Ines is a true professional with a sincere love of her home town of Lisbon. She selected excellent venues for our art project and was an enthusiastic and effective partner in carrying out the project. She provided superb translation services and went the extra mile to ensure our successful. Plus, her knowledge of the city and surrounding areas and her advice about sights and experiences of interest allowed us to maximize our short time in Lisbon. We give Ines the highest recommendation and thanks!
Randy JohnsonUnited States
Our walking tour of Lisbon with Ines was absolutely fantastic! We felt like at the end of the tour that we had really been shown all of the highlights of Lisbon! The stop for a custard tart and a coffee midway through the tour was a delicious break and we loved being able to see the tarts being made! Lisbon is a delightful city, but being able to see it through the eyes of such a charming native as Ines made it so much more special to us!
Catherine ParkerUnited States
Ines was fantastic! We landed at 7 am, completely jet lagged from our flight from Denver and Ines kept us wide awake with her interesting and perfectly paced tour of Lisbon. I have a terrible sense of direction, but after our tour with Ines I could actually get around without a map (or cell phone!). Thank you, Ines, for a wonderful start to our trip!
Lori CampbellUnited States
Ines found her niche in private guiding, with her amazing grasp of multiple languages, profound understanding of Lisbon history, and her pleasant demeanor and personal touch. While we had planned to meet in a local square, she met us at the doorway of our rental apartment and stayed past her planned end time to make sure we got to the best vantage point for a sunset over the city. In between, she catered to our desires and limited time in Lisbon so that we could maximize our experience. Awesome.
Ashok BakhruUnited States
Ines was superb. Her relationship skills, relating to us as clients was exceptional, her knowledge of Lisbon and Portugal was thorough, her English was outstanding, open to questions and her demeanor was that she had all the time in the world for us. Would recommend her to others WITHOUT reservations.
Angela BodanzaUnited States
Ines was excellent. Very knowledgeable , pleasant, courteous and efficient. Would use her again and will recommend her to others who may be of interest.
Betsy WhittingtonUnited States
Tours by Locals has come thru again. Ines was perfect for our small group - friendly, upbeat, extremely knowledgeable, and patient. Everywhere we walked in the city she was enthusiastically greeted by other tour guides. As it was very hot, she kept us in the shade as much as possible and provided ample opportunity to sit a bit. Thank you Ines - we so enjoyed meeting you.
We cannot say enough about our guide, Ines. Lisbon just would't have been as spectacular as it was without her! Super informative, she is a walking history book. Our five year old was enamoured with her stories of Portuguese Royalty and we loved marvelling at the wonderful architecture and historical sights she shared with us. Probably the best tour guide we have ever had (and we have had many.)Thank you so much for your time with us, we cannot wait to come back now, and are planning our next stay already
Had the most amazing tour with the delightful Ines whose passion for Lisbon shone through with her incredible knowledge, history and stories about her hometown. I can't recommend The Hills Of Lisbon" tour highly enough (especially with Ines) on your arrival into Lisbon as it definitely gave more insight into Lisbon and how to orient ourselves around for the next few days.... Soooooo worth it.....
Michael G.huntington beach, CA, United States
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!
Kristin MaconeUnited States
Book with Ines Immediately!! She was an outstanding tour guide, extremely knowledgeable, and truly loved everything about Lisbon. Ines tailored the 8+ hour day perfectly and hit all the spots I had on my list, plus more! It was an unbelievable, unforgettable experience and worth every penny. I now have a friend in Lisbon. Thank you Ines for an amazing day!
Marcia BrookeyUnited States
Ines was delightful! Extremely knowledgeable and well prepared, patient, passionate about the city and adorable. Best money I've ever spent. I can't recommend her tour of Lisbon enough. Please, please. Skip the crowded touristy spots, pricey meals, etc. Instead, spend four hours with Ines and you'll learn a lot about the hundreds of layers of Lisbon's fascinating history.Unforgettable experience.
I did a tour yesterday with Inês, in Lisbon. It was great, very entertaining. We had a mixed group (adults, teenager, child) and she appealed to everyone. She has great Lisbon knowledge. Thank you,
Very knowledgable about the history of the city and country. Great personality, fun lots of great recommendations a pleasure to be with and very flexible to change based on our feedback. Would recommend to others. Rob from Toronto

Ines was incredible. Her knowledge and clear love of her city was contagious! She taylored the morning to my requests. Seeing parts of the city that were off the beaten path.
Sue BarczakUnited States
Ines showed us the vibrancy of Lisbon. Introducing us to some of the local delicacies. Her knowledge of the neighborhood haunts frequented by the locals made the experience more special.
James BlakeUnited States
Great day walking tour all around historic areas of Lisbon. Ines speaks perfect English, is very friendly, very well informed and enthusiastic for Portugal and its history. Higher recommend her for any Lisbon area tour.

Alma HavericUnited States
We had amazing time with Ines. She was great, extremely knowledgable, and great personality. She was funny, loving, very professional, and a guide that I would recommend to everybody. On time, perfect communication, and at the same time very flexible. She listened to our needs, and also shared her love of her native town. Ines thank you so much, and we will be back.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Alma, it will be a pleasure to have you back here. I could easily feel your curiosity and enthusiasm about my country. Thank you!
James ReynoldsUnited States
The tour with Ines was fantastic! Ines is very personable, and is willing to share not only her knowledge of Portugal, which is extensive, but also the more personal aspects of her country like politics, religion, and contemporary culture. Her English is perfect, and within a few minutes on the tour she makes you feel like you are touring the city with an old friend. By the end of the tour we came away with a much better understanding of Lisbon, Portugal, it's people, it's history and culture.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear James, thank you so much for your review. It is great to know I had such an impact in your knowledge about my country. It is wonderful to tell about it to such curious and interested people. Thank you!
Fred ShulmanUnited States
Ines was all around wonderful. Ines is a licensed guide with all the knowledge of Lisbon that one would expect of a guide. But what made our tour with her special (we were 2 couples from USA) was her wonderful personality and adapting to seeing the sites we were interested in and telling the histories of the sites in such an enthusiastic way. She was such a pleasure to tour with and a wealth of information and made us feel the past and present life of Lisbon. Highly recommend her ! Her English was perfect
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Fred,Rhoda, Steve and Grace, thank you so much for your kind review. I loved to spend the morning showing you my city. I hope to have the opportunity to have you here again and/or spend time with friends of yours that visit Lisbon. Thank you again for choosing me to guide you here!
Ines was an excellent guide in every way: her english is excellent, her passion for Lisboa palable and helped us understand and feel the city in a way we would never have been able to do alone. The four hours were over very quickly and due to this very pleasant first experience we decided to book her for the whole day trip to Sintra next day also. Highly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Igor and the Ladies :) I had a great afternoon with you, thank you for choosing me to guide you in my city!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Ryan! I had a great afternoon taking you through Lisbon's historical center and going across the river for the views from the statue of Christ. Thank you for choosing me to guide you :)
Inês met us promptly at the designated time and place. She was friendly, enthusiastic and just a lot of fun to spend a few hours with touring around Lisbon. Highly recommended!
David LeonardUnited States
Wow, Ines was one awesome tour guide! The knowledge she had about the history of Lisbon and Portugal just rolled off her tongue with ease, I think her calling should have been a historian professor at Harvard University. She provide the exact tour I wanted based on my capability and needs. If you are a history buff and want to know the fine details of Portugal's history hire Ines. I am glad my colleagues did not join me since I was able to have a 4 hour 1:1 tour to really appreciate Portugal's history.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hahaha, thank you, Leonard, for such a spontaneous and kind review! :) I enjoyed it as much as you did. It is wonderful to tell about my country to people interested in knowing it better! It will be a pleasure to see you again in a future opportunity!
Thomas H L.Stavanger, Norway
Ines was fantastic. She was so helpful in accommodating a last-minute tour of Lisbon, which she completely personalized for us. She knows so much about the neighborhoods and history of the region. Made our extra day in Lisbon totally worth it.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much, Thomas! You and your beautiful family made it a fun and different tour for me too!
Ines was our guide for a day in Lisbon and it was great! Ines loves Portugal and Lisbon and can tell you ALL about history, culture, people, food, art, music and she has a great sense of humour! I've started to read Fernando Pessoa because of her, so that makes her pretty much a perfect guide! Thanks Ines!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Henk and Rutger, thank you so much for choosing me to be your guide! I had a great time walking with you through the city and showing you my favourite places! I will be here when you come back :)
Michael FineUnited States
Lisbon is a city of hills, and Ines helps you see the impact the hills have had on the city and its people over the centuries. Exploring the hills by funicular, tram and walking allows one to fully experience the historical and charming neighborhoods, spectacular views and unique architecture that makes Lisbon such a wonderful place. A wonderful tour by a person who lovers her city and wants to share it with everyone.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mike and Ellen, what a pleasure it was to walk Lisbon with you. You are great fun to be with. Who knows we meet again, but in California!:)
Keith B.Sandy, UTAH, United States
Lisbon is a fascinating beautiful historical city. Ines was a great guide with extensive knowledge of the city. She is a very friendly and personable guide who speaks fluent English. Would highly recommend her for guide services in and around Lisbon. Our walking tour was great.

I think walking is the best way to know a city and the joy and kindness of your group made it even better! Thank you for booking me for your 4 days in Lisbon!

Linda RosenUnited States
Inês was great! She was personable and easy to get along with. She was happy to be flexible regarding our needs. She was knowledgeable, but I did not feel like I was being lectured to. We had Inês on our first morning in Lisbon. She related well to us and our college aged kids. Thanks for a great day Inês!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Linda and Alan, Thank you so much! I had a great time with you four, walking around Lisbon and enjoying the fact that I was helping you to discover the city and its little corners and curiosities.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Brent, it was such a pleasure to guide you and your friends in Lisbon. I would love to meet you again here. Thank you for your feedback :)
Ines was great. She changed the tour according to our program. We visited all the placed we wanted. She is an offical-licensed tour guide, which is an important fact if you dont want to waste your time. Alp
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Alp, Thank you for your review and for choosing me to guide you! It was a pleasure to show you and your wife my city by walking and exploring both the hidden corners and the important monuments. I am happy that you got to visit everything you wanted. We'll meet next time for the Évora tour!
Ellen SchwartzmanCosta Rica
What an exciting tour! Ines oriented and welcomed us to the her magical city, leading us to hidden gems that we would never have encountered on our own. Thus, we got a true flavor of the sights, sounds and tastes of the city as we walked its cobbled streets. After a long trip to from Central America to Europe, with a group of energetic teenagers, Ines managed to captivate and relate to each one of us. I commend her on her organization, genuine enthusiasm and ability as a talented guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Ellen, it was great spending time with you and your energetic teenagers! They brought me even more energy :) see you in a near future!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your comment Claudia! It was a pleasure to take you, Gil and your daughters on this walking tour of Lisbon. Your curiosity for my city made me feel even more motivated!
Ines was at the port to meet our cruise ship. The tour was as described, getting around the city on foot and by short rides by public transport( Ines had already bought our tickets). A stop for coffee in a local cafe was also included .Ines is a very professional guide who speaks great English and we found her tour most interesting and well worth the money.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Susan, Thank you so much for your comment. I also had a good time with you, walking in this beautiful city in order to discover its gems. I am happy that you enjoyed it and found it interesting. Maybe one day it will be you to show me Melbourne!
