Carla provided us with a wonderful tour to the fabulous Batalha Monastery and to the Sanctuary at Fatima. She graciously fulfilled our last minute request to change to a more suitable vehicle to accommodate my physical limitations, knew the wheelchair-friendly routes, and was very patient with my photographic efforts. Carla enlightened us with many insights into Portuguese life and culture, and shared her in-depth knowledge about the sights we visited. We hope to tour with her again in the future.
Cary McGannUnited States
Carla was a wonderful guide on our first trip to Lisbon. She met us at the airport upon arrival, and we received a great tour of the city to give us an overview for us to continue on our own after that. She was so knowledgeable and showed us all the highlights. At the end, she dropped us off at our hotel. It was perfect! Thanks Carla. Cary McGann United States
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your comments and I am pleased to hear that I could be helpful for the rest of your time in Lisbon. Warm regards Carla
Micheal H.United States
Our 2nd tour with Carla was as good as the 1st. Sintra was crowded but she did a fine job getting us quickly to Pena Palace. Her explanations of the various rooms & art work was great. Visits to Monserrate & Quinta da Regaleira were fascinating. Not to be missed. Nice lunch @ a non tourist restaurant was appreciated. Book this tour with Carla, you will not be disappointed.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I do appreciate you kind comments. Many thanks ! Carla
Micheal H.United States
A great day with Carla. She arrived at our hotel early (always a plus). There is no doubt about her knowledge of the 3 sites visited. Carla provided detailed information about the history & architecture of the monasteries. The day flowed smoothly as we never felt she was in a rush while visiting the sites. No rushing on the highways either as she is a safe driver. Lunch was perfect as we ate at a restaurant in Tomar away from the tourist area. Book this tour with Carla!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Michael Thank you for your kind comments. This tour is a great alternative to get away from the crowds in Lisbon and surroundings, just as you have experienced it. So glad you have choosen it! With warm regards Carla
Ellyn WrzeskiUnited States
Carla was a knowledgeable and personable guide. As a Lisbon native she not only knew the area well but the history. She took us to Óbidos (and was patient with our shopping) and then to a local restaurant "Land of the Goats" which was superb. We then went to the Caputo Convent which was definitely off the tourist track - in the forest and dating to late 1500s. Comfortable car. A lovely day!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Ellyn and friends. I wish you a great vacation for the next days in our country! Warm regards

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind comment, for considering a nice tour despite of being a hard day , having my mother hospitalized without getting news on her status ( she just entered the hospital early that morning). I am glad you appreciated that and I wish I could have been at 100% to provide you with a great and memorable experience of my hometown. Going to Sintra did not help much for we were not able to appreciate this former King resort due to parking limitations. I wish you a great time in Portugal! Carla

David H.United States
Carla was our booking agent and the booking experience went fine. To ensure all was set up for the class, I initiated texting with Carla the day before to validate the meeting place and time We arrived at the booking time of 10:30. The chef haas not arrived. I started texting and calling Carla without any response. I was writing an email to indicate default of contract after 1 hour of waiting when the chef arrived at 11:30. That was the time she was told to arrive. Finally, at 11:50 Carla called.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear David, I fully assume the mistake of the confusion with the meeting time and for not beeing available at the mobile. You have always requested 10h30 and that was the time of your booking but I forgot to correct it with the Chef. Fortunatelly these situations seldom happen with me, but this time I was not carefull about should have re-checked again. I was not available for personal reasons as previously explained. Again I failed not having given the Chef`s mobile as well. I apreciate your patience and
