Gloria was a wonderful tour guide. Her style, such as saying she was taking us to her favorite lookout in Lisbon, made us feel as though we were truly seeing something special. And, we were. Her love for Lisbon came through loud and clear. We had a fabulous time with her and learned a lot about the Jewish history, which was our main goal.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your touching words.

Gloria is a fantastic tour guide! Her personality is ideal for this profession. We felt like we were very important and special people to her. Gloria is a walking library, she is very knowledgeable and transmit her knowledge about Lisbon's history and culture in a very entertaining and interesting way. We learned a lot from her.

Gloria was a fabulous tour guide. Before we met she provided good recommendations via e-mail with prompt and informative responses. During our tour she was kind, knowledgeable and flexible regarding our itinerary. Her tour of the city provided a wonderful overview, allowing us to see many highlights, and making our desire to return to Lisbon that much greater. I give Gloria my highest recommendation.

Fantastic tour! Gloria really gave me a view of the heart and soul of Lisbon. My first time here, I enjoyed learning about the culture, architecture, history and food of this great city.

Gloria was superb as our Lisbon guide. The driver was also great. She was prompt, accommodating, pleasant & extremely knowledgeable of the Jewish Lisbon history and gave us tips on the next day of shopping & port to buy. She absolutely met and exceeded our expectations.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am so happy you enjoyed it. Hope that Lisbon has a special corner in your hearts
Martin MayersonUnited States
Gloria was phenomenal. She was very personable, spirited and extremely knowledgeable. In addition, since there was an overlap with another tour we did., she agreed to work out an alternative that was amazing. She was happy and able to shift seamlessly. Our driver was super, as well, we had a wonderful day. She also volunteered to make a reservation in a special restaurant...we didn't even need to ask! Wonderful!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your kind comments and I hope you come back soon!
Caryn WisemanUnited States
We could not have loved this tour more. Having a driver along allowed Gloria to focus and interact with us. Gloria is incredibly warm, personable, flexible, and knowledgable. Catering to our interests (and the weather), she suggested the we visit the National Palace and the Quinta de Regeleira, rather than the Pena Palace. Both were amazing. When we got back to Lisbon, she suggested dropping us off at the Gulbenkian Museum, which was wonderful. We thoroughly enjoyed our day with Gloria.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much. I hope to meet you again!
Caryn WisemanUnited States
I cannot praise Gloria highly enough. Her knowledge, her passion for the subject, her flexibility, and her warm and friendly demeanor made this tour an absolute highlight. Having a driver along allowed Gloria to really focus and interact with us, which was outstanding. We combined this tour with the half-day tour to Sintra, and asked if we could start a little earlier so that our daughter, who was leaving that day, could be with us. No problem! We learned so much, and we're so grateful to Gloria!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It would be a true pleasure to guide you again. All the best

Michael ClarkColleyville, TX, United States
Outstanding. Gloria was very knowledgeable and extremely personable and my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the day with her. Besides getting us around some lines and providing the back story on Lisbon's highlights, she helped us with driver and restaurant recommendations. We would absolutely recommend her to any other visitors.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am happy that you enjoyed it! Come back anytime!
Bonnie ShelkrotUnited States
Gloria is an excellent guide. She is not only knowedgable, but also most personable. We started our tour by her showing us on a map her plan for the walking tour to make sure her plan met our expectation. Throughout the afternoon she kept checking to make sure that our experience was on target. This was one of our best tours ever. Guides by Locals have never let us down.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your comments. It was a pleasure to have met you. Come back anytime!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Donna!
Joel GoldsteinUnited States
Coimbra is a must see. We had very little time there because the drive is long, which we had known when we signed up. This tour should be combined when one stays in Porto...so more to see next time when in Portugal. We toured the university library...WOW! and the Chapel. We walked down to a nice cafe, Tapas Nas Costas, where the food was excellent. Gloria took me to a couple of shops where I was able to purchase a tablecloth; and another shop for earrings. She certainly knows quality and budgets.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a pleasure to guide you through Coimbra and in the shopping you were needing to do ;) come back anytime!
Manuel FortesEdmond, OKLAHOMA, United States
The first morning in Lisbon and my wife and I met Gloria for a half-day 4-hour tour. She joined us punctually at our hotel, and we walked the vicinities for a few minutes. She knew details and stories about all the monuments and old buildings surrounding us. We were then picked up by Davi, the driver that works with her, very polite but quiet gentlemen driving a luxury sedan. We made several stops at different historical sites, and Gloria always had a lot of exciting things to say. I highly recommend it.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your kind words. It was a pleasure to meet you.
Joel GoldsteinUnited States
We toured so many areas within Lisbon. Belem was excellent as was the Alfalma district. We learned quite alot with Gloria as our guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you
Joel GoldsteinUnited States
This was our first meeting with Gloria. (My sister had recommended and raved about her but didn't know the specifics until we actually met). We couldn't have chosen a better guide. Gloria's knowledge is very broad and deep. We love her relaxed and expressive manner. She'd given us numerous choices, so got to know our preferences fairly quickly. We visited the lower palace in Sintra. Afterwards we went to a wonderful cork shop and then onto relax at nice pastry shop. Our driver, David was excellent
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much. Come back!
I engaged Gloria for the Jewish walking tour hoping that along with the history of the Jews in Lisbon, we would get a good introduction to Lisbon as well. And that was just what happened. Gloria is knowledgeable and also flexible. She adjusted the tour to our needs and wishes, and we had a delightful morning. She also gave us plenty of tips about what to do in the remaining days of our visit. Thank you Gloria and the weather!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your words. I hope to see you soon.
Joseph ZellUnited States

Ilyssa DavidsonUnited States
Gloria customized her Belem tour exactly how I asked for my family of four. I told her we are interested in history and she gave us an incredibly informative tour and kept it fun. We saw all of the sights I asked for (she knows the ins and outs of everything so you can get through things much faster!) but if you don't have an agenda she is happy to suggest. She has a lovely personality and asked several times during the tour how everything was going. She was also very accommodating and responsive.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: thank you for your kind words. Come back anytime!
