What a fantastic day-long tour, one of the most memorable tours we've taken. A little different than anticipated, in the best possible way; as if Augusto knew what we really wanted and delivered, absolutely spot on. If you're considering a tour with this guide, do it. He made our trip to Lisbon very special, you won't be disappointed.

Augusto was an enthusiastic energetic guide. He has a wonderful knowledge of the area and enjoyed showing and explaining Evora. We had lunch at a typical Portuguese restaurant and ate some delicious food we never would have ordered such as Dogfish soup. We also went to the prehistoric monoliths and a short visit to do a little wine tasting. The day went very quickly and all 6 of us had a great time. We have had many private guides and Augusto ranks up there with the best.

This was an amazing day. Gus picked us up at our hotel and we were off to take in the sites. He had suggested that we get to Pena Palace before they opened in order to beat the majority of the large crowds and he was right. we were on the first shuttle bus up to the Palace which really made a difference. We had plenty of time to enjoy the tour through the Palace and do some shopping ;) We then continued on to Estoril and Cascais to enjoy the amazing Portuguese countryside. Highly recommend Gus as a guide

We were very pleased with this tour. Gus was prompt and professional. He was flexible with our itinerary and he was very helpful with making sure my mother, who has mobility issues, fully enjoyed the tour. We hit all the major sites included in the tour and were duly impressed. Gus was great at explaining the history of what we were seeing and how it all tied into the history of Lisbon and Portugal. He is very proud of his country and rightfully so. I would not hesitate to recommend Gus as a tour guide.

Our tour with Augusto was excellent. He is extremely knowledgeable and interesting. He has an excellent command of English. He was very accommodating with my mother who has difficulty walking, going out of his way to drive her to spots of interest, and coming back with his vehicle to pick her up. His driving skills are impressive - a very safe driver who is able to navigate tight spots. Augusto is knowledgeable of local foods and recommended a great restaurant. Good sense of humor! Very accomodating

When you take a guided tour that includes a car and driver you want the car to be clean and comfortable and the driver to be excellent. Gus (Augusto) provides those basics and so much more. His enthusiasm for Lisbon is infectious and his personality puts you at ease as much as his driving does. As the day went along it felt more and more relaxed like traveling with a local friend or relative. I'd book him again in a heartbeat for another tour next time we come back,

Augusto was amazing! He picked us up at the cruise terminal in Lisbon where we began our tour of the city.He made our day exceptional. His knowledge of the area was great and his English was perfect. This tour was only four hours because our ship did not dock till 4:00 pm. We had an option of taking the tour offered by the cruise line. However who would want to do that when you would be on a bus with 50 people at a much higher cost. The bus tour would have never seen the places Augusto took us.

We took us took a fantastic seafood restaurant with some of the best fish and views we've seen / had so far. His knowledge of the region really brought life to our car ride.

Very disappointed when Augusto went to the wrong hotel to pick us up. We made our reservation more than ten months ago, and wanted to feel like he had taken the time to get to know the details of our trip. But the tour itself was fine. We just think maybe your guides are too busy serving too many customers? Would have also been nice to have been told to bring a jacket—it was cold! So I borrowed his. Seems like you are all really busy, and one customer blends into another. But tour was great.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mary and Robert, thanks for your review. I made a mistake checking the meeting location and when double checked i was running out of time, i apologize my delay arriving at the meeting location. I am also thankful for your words in a second email: "Augusto is a very talented tour guide, and we're happy with the trip we took", it will help me in the result of my annual performance. July it is one of our hottest months i was not expecting that lower temperatures. My honest regards, Augusto.

Augusto was knowledgeable and delightful. The best part of our day is the way he knew the shortcut to get in and out of the Pena castle with ease. We never felt rushed but by the time the crowd arrived, we were finished and felt like we had seen it all. His agenda for the rest of the day was wonderful. I highly recommend his guidance. We loved our day with Augusto.

Augusto provided us with a magical introduction to Portugal with this day trip from Lisbon to Sintra, Estoril and Cascais. He was most informative about the history and architectural details of the Pena Palais in Sintra. The lunch at an Oceanside table in a Seafood restaurant by the beach, off the touristy beaten path was the piece de resistance of the trip, assuring memories to savor for years to come. Augusto is a true professional whose love for Portugal truly informs his passionate enthusiasm.

Augusto was a wonderful guide who was very knowledgeable and passionate about his tours. His vehicle was new and very clean. We loved this tour in particular because it was slightly off the beaten path and a very authentic experience of Portugal. He also arranged ocean view seating at a coastal restaurant where we enjoyed the freshest and most delicious fish with excellent Portuguese wines. We traveled with our 3 teenagers boys and he kept us all very engaged.

Augusto was the most fantastic, informative, professional, and thoroughly charming tour guide of our entire six countries trip. So patient, as we are older travellers, and so respectful of our needs. I highly recommend Augusto as a travel guide who knows his country and his job so well and it is evident that he loves them both. Many thanks Augusto.

This was a very pricey tour but for what we paid for it we really did not get anything we would not get on a hop on hop off tour. There was very little information and history. We really expected so much more for this price. Unfortunately the tour left us underwhelmed.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ann Shteynblik, Thank you for your review and i sincerely apologize that this tour was not what you expected. I have studied this tour "start to finish". For a 10 people group we needed a mini-bus so the quote naturally increases.

I will keep the hard working and improving my tours to be always part of the best guides. Sincerely, Augusto

Augusto is a really great tour guide and I very much enjoyed the full day I spent with him in Lisbon and Belem. He is very knowledgeable about his city; his command of Portuguese history was impressive. He was a very professional guide and very attentive to the needs of his guests.

Thanks to Augusto, we had a great day exploring Portugal in a way we never could have on our on. He's easy, relaxed, and very knowledgeable! Augusto customized our trip to meet our schedule and interest. His services were well worth it and exceeded our expectations. The only saint he left off our tours of Cathedrals was "Saint Augusto" the "Saint Of Great Day Trips!" His lunch suggestion in Evora and wine tasting at Quinta de Alcube was spot on!! DO NOT MISS A TRIP WITH AUGUSTO!! Jeff

Augusto was our guide in Lisbon. He was simply wonderful. Very knowledgeable and passionate about his country. He met our ship in Lisbon and we had a terrific day visiting the sights in Lisbon and surrounding area. He was engaging, humorous and most informative. Best guide we had in all of our ports! Would recommend him with no hesitation. Thank you for some great memories!

We had a very pleasant day with Augusto . Due to the late arrival of our ship he reversed the sequence of our tour and we went up the coastline first. Roca Cape is a great view of the coastline and the local restaurant was a treat of experiencing local food. Sintra is amazing and very crowded but Augusto knew how to get around very easily and still allow us to enjoy the town and the castle. Thanks for a great day and would recommend Augusto for a great day in the Lisbon area.

My wife had hip replacement surgery 7 weeks ago. We made the reservation for this tour before we knew about the surgery. Augusto made changes to the tour to accomodate her walking with a cane. She was able to navigate the Pena Palace at the beginning of the tour day. We loved seeing the highlights of Sintra as well as the highlights of Lisbon. Excellent tour and tour guide��

We spent a really enjoyable day with Augusto touring Sintra, Belem and Lisbon. He is very knowledgeable, very personable, very polite, and a very safe and courteous driver. The crowds were large throughout the day. However, Augusto knew routes and secrets that enabled us to see everything we wanted to see without a hitch. I would recommend Augusto highly.

Augusto is an excellent tour guide and a very safe driver. He provided an intensive one day tour of Lisbon that gave us an insight into the history of Lisbon and we saw the maximum number of sites of Lisbon that may be seen in a single day. He took us to a market that is not usually visited by tourist and has a variety of restaurants. It was the perfect place to have lunch on a day when time is important. This was our second tour with Augusto as our guide and I highly recommend him.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Richard Nance, thanks for this review!!! Absolutely rewarding!!! I just received the confirmation for another tour with me next year (2018), thank you for one more booking!!! I will meet you there (no sign this time)!!! :)

It was a very busy day in Sintra and Augusto knew when to be where, how to get there and where to park, so we saw everything without a lot of wasted time. We also loved his recommendation for lunch - great food, organized, got you in and out without feeling rushed! I would recommend Augusto for your next trip.

Augusto was a great guide, giving us a wonderful overview of Lisbon. He is both bright and personable demonstrating a deep appreciation of the history and culture of his city. Although our flight from the US arrived 45 minutes early, he had monitored the flight information and was waiting for us at the airport way ahead of our arranged meeting time. The tour he provided was great and we thoroughly enjoyed our time with him.

Augusto is an excellent tour guide and a very good and safe drive. We enjoyed our visit the the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Evora, Portugal. Augusto modified his standard itinerary to take us to and ancient site where approximately 6000 years BC ancient man erected a solar calendar similar to the better known site of Stonehenge, UK. Evora is a small city that meny people have never heard of, but after visiting the site, book Augustos's tour and broaden your horizons.

A very thorough tour from Augusto. A comfortable ride in his van to visit Sintra, the castles and area. He also knows some "secret" spots that get phenomenal photos of the castle itself. After that we toured local beaches, including Cascais and Estoril. Augusto recommended good places to visit, since he gave us free personal time to walk and wander in Cascais and explore. He is very personable, speaks excellent English, is cool and hip, and very knowledgeable. Thank you Augusto!
