Silvia is an excellent guide. Very knowledgeable and she made the tour fun. We saw a lot in a short amount of time and got a good walk in. We were well prepared to walk and continue to explore Lisbon on our own. It was our first visit to Portugal so we really enjoyed learning about the history and seeing the different areas of Lisbon. Silvia is a Lisbon native and has a university degree in tourism. Highly recommend!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Susan, thank you so much for your words. Hope to see you again, next time with the grandchildren :) Regards

Silvia was more than just a tour guide. She was like a knowledgeable friend who showed us around her city. We felt un-rushed as we went from Lisbon to Sintra (gorgeous!), then on to Cascais where we discussed politics and enjoyed lunch with her at a local sea side restaurant. On the drive back to Lisbon (in her very comfy SUV) she showed us more sites. Overall, the 8 hours with Silvia was the best day of our trip! I HIGHLY recommend her!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Beverly thank you so much for your review. Is so grateful to read that you enjoyed our time together that much. I am speechless. All the best. Warm regards

We had a fabulous walking tour of Lisbon with Silvia F. It was the absolute best part of our stay in Lisbon. Silvia is energetic, interesting, and extremely knowledgeable about the city and its history, culture, food, and everything we were interested in learning about. We give her our highest recommendation!!! She's one of the best private guides we have ever had. Thank you, Silvia! Marsha

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: UAU....What amazing words!!! I am speechless! Thank you so much. I am truly happy that you enjoyed our walking tour :)

I have been on Tours by Locals in 4 European countries and Silvia was the most knowledgeable guide I have experienced. Her knowledge of the history and culture of Lisbon was extensive. This coupled with her enthusiasm and passion for Lisbon made for a thoroughly enjoyable walking tour. It was a great way to start our visit.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Carolyn, I am so delighted with your words, I am so happy that you enjoyed our tour together. Thank you so much for your review. Regards

We had only 7 hours in Lisbon and Silvia gave us a great overview of Lisbon and Sintra’s history and culture. Her pride in Lisbon is infectious and we highly recommend her for other travelers. And she shared Lisbon’s culinary treats as well!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Jane! :) See you next time in Lisbon :) The tour was an invitation to return :)

Another superb guide from Tours by Locals. Silvia led a walking tour for three of us in Lisbon. We could not be happier with her performance. Her English is very clear and fluent. She has an engaging personality that strongly supports the content of the tour. She demonstrated extensive knowledge of Lisbon's history and culture. The best thing we can say is that Silvia's tour has left us planning our next visit to Lisbon.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Kevin, Thank you so much for your commentary. I am looking forward to see you again in Lisbon :)

In addition to being a knowledgeable and articulate tour guide, Silvia was also sensitive to our age and ability to negotiate the hills of Lisbon. As she knows her way around this very complex and fiercely independent city, she was able to select the optimum route for us without missing the major attractions.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: :) :) :) Thank you so much Bruce!!

Silvia was great!! We were a group of 6 (5 Brazilians and 1 Gringo) and she adeptly toggled back and forth between Portuguese and English to keep the group satisfied and engaged. She is very knowledgeable and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a tour in Lisbon.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: So happy to hear that you enjoyed the tour!! Next time we do it 100% in Portuguese :)

Silvia, who was waiting for us outside our door at the appointed time, was very pleasant and easy to talk with. She was perfectly fluent in English, very knowledgeable, and able to share her knowledge of Lisbon in a way that did not feel like she was lecturing us. When asked for more detail about anything, she was obviously very confident with having that additional knowledge. We had only arrived in the late afternoon the day before and so the tour was also an excellent way to get our bearings. Excellent!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi David, Thank you so. Much for your review, I really appreciate it, and I am so happy that you enjoyed the time that you spend with and you fell was worth it!! :)

My wife and I had an amazing tour with Silvia. She was extremely knowledgeable, and gave us a thorough understanding of Portugal history, while showing us Lisbon. She not only showed us the highlights, but so many small details that make up life in Lisbon. While it was a tour, it never felt as such. It was three people waking, sharing a conversation on a multitude of topics regarding Portugal. This was one of the best tours we have ever had, and highly recommend Silvia. Thank you Silvia!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Uau what a amazing review, so happy you felt that way and enjoyed our walking and Lisbon!! Thank you so much, hope you continue to enjoy Portugal

Dear Sílvia Thank you so much for your perfect "As much as you can in one Day" tour. We simply asked you to tour the highlights of Lisbon as we are first time visitors and would like to pack as much as we can into a full day tour. Mission accomplished! You modified this tour to fit our wishes with very little input from us and delivered more history and culture than expected. You are very knowledgeable, friendly and a pleasure to meet. Met as clients, parted friends. We highly recommend you. Bob

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Bob, Thank you so much for your words, there's nothing better than fell that you enjoyed all the time we spend together and all the things we saw!! Hope to see you again in Portugal :)

We spent an entire day with Sylvia on her Highlights of Lisbon tour. She was friendly , enthusiastic and very knowledgeable . We enjoyed every moment of our tour with her. She was able to make our short stay in Lisbon feel as if we had stayed long enough to learn about the best of the city. We left feeling at home and wanting to return to experience even more. We would not hesitate to recommend that you definitely choose Sylvia and any of her tours for a wonderful day in Lisbon .

We LOVED Sylvia. She gave us a walking tour the day before, and she became a dear friend by the end of this day where she drove us to Sintra, along the coast, and to some other places. We learned a ton, and we so enjoyed being in her company. As I said in the previous review, we would have given her 7 stars if the system allowed. We'll go back to Lisbon because we loved being with Sylvia so much.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: "We'll go back to Lisbon because we loved being with Sylvia so much" this was definitely my favorite part :) I really hope to see you again in Portugal!!! I still have so many things to show to you!! Muito obrigada!!
