Had a fantastic day with Fabiana, who was a last minute substitute for Sara, who came down ill. Sara did a great job in providing a replacement who was terrific. The day we had in Coimbra flew by. We walked the entire town from the University, to the old city, thru the gardens and market and across the river. My wife and I can't say enough about Fabiana's and Sara's professionalism in setting the day up. I would strongly recommend Sara/Fabiana if you are in Coimbra.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello! Thank you for visiting my hometown and being so interested :) it was a joy guiding you here! Come back anytime! Best regards Sara C.

Sara C. was great, in every aspect. She was prompt, personable, informative, and very cognizant of the more frequent brief rest stops needed by her "mature adult" tour group! She was so willing to gear the tour to our physical as well as informational needs. We could not have been happier with her tour guidance and information.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Diana (and everyone else ;) )! It was lovely meeting you and having the chance to guide you in Fátima and the Shepherds Village! Thank you very much for your feedback. I'll be here in the future, when you come back! Cheers!

We are 2 adults and a 7 year-old boy. We have taken about 10 other private tours in Portugal. We enjoyed the local waffle named Tripa Americana, saw the canals, and had time for coffee, lunch and snacks. We saw the beach and very tall Lighthouse of Praia da Barra in Farol de Aveiro. We then visited the colorfully painted houses of Costa Nova Beach and an outdoor exercise area that children, including ours, greatly enjoyed. Sara is knowledgeable and we all enjoyed the day.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Craig! Thank you very much for your feedback, it was a delightful day and I am very happy to have been your guide in Aveiro and around :) Best wishes to you and your family & enjoy your last days of shopping in Lisboa (don't forget about the Fado in Alfama ;) )!

This was our third day with Sara. Unfortunately one member of our group fell sick and needed medical attention. Sara altered our schedule so that she could pick up some of us from the hospital and salvage part of our touring, even in the rain! I would definitely get in touch with her again if I am in Portugal.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Patricia! 5* once again, I can't thank you enough! I am very grateful I was able to help out in every way I could. I was very worried and so sorry he got sick and hope he got better after I left! I am sending you all my best wishes :) Sara C.

Relaxed pace which is good for us. Our guide is prompt and that's important to us. She is knowledgeable of the areas we visited and took a local guide where there are areas she needs help with. She only recommends what truly is good when it comes to food.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Trinidad! Thank you very much for your feedback on my work. It makes me very happy to know that you've appreciated your multi-day tours throughout Portugal (and Spain too)!

We got Joanna for a guide as Sara ended up being busy that day. Joanna was very sweet and authentically loved Fátima and her catholic faith. She was quiet but good.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Rhonda! Thank you very much for your feedback. Me and my colleague Joana really appreciate it. In Fátima, we tend to be quieter because it's a place of devotion so we must respect people's silence and prayers. Anyway, that doesn't prevent us from giving our clients all the information needed regarding Fátima, the apparitions and the history and stories of the Sanctuary and the Shepherds. You'll be welcome back anytime :) Best regards, Sara C.

Highly recommend Sara for a Coimbra tour. We were met at the Quintas de Lagrimas hotel where we were staying and she gave us a great tour of the gardens and lots of details about the tragic story of Pedro y Ines. We then walked over to the University, toured the campus, the library, and at all points she provided great detail and history. She has great pride in this city and her country-very fun!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Austin! Thank you very much for your feedback. It was lovely meeting you and your wife, and letting you know everything wonderful about this city. You're welcome back any time!!! Sara C.

My husband and I enjoyed a private four hour tour of Coimbra with Sara. We all thought that the tour was great. Sara was extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic as we climbed up and down the streets of the city. It was apparent to us that she had a passion for guiding and a great love for Coimbra. She imparted this passion and love to us in such a way that we came away from our tour with not only a knowledge of Coimbra and its history but with a desire to return to this wonderful city in the future.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello! Thank you very much for your words about my work - I truly love guiding tours...and I am absolutely passioned about my city and Central Portugal. You will be always welcome here �� Hope to see you in the future! Best regards Sara C.
