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.

We were thrilled with the tour Sara gave us of her hometown Coimbra! She was informative, casual and everything that Tours By Locals is all about. Our family of 5 saw many sights and received many insights into life in the City. Bravo Sara! She certainly enhanced our knowledge of the area and gave us a fun day. We would highly recommend her!
