Paulo is fantastic, I highly recommend his guide services! He met us right at our hotel and the morning of our tour which was very convenient! He's so knowledgeable about the history of Portugal; he easily conveys his love for Portugal and its history in his tour! We saw so many beautiful places in Evora and really get a good undertaking of Portugal for the rest of our trip! He took us to a nice little cafe and we enjoyed a local treat and espresso. I recommend the half day Evora walking tour with Paulo

I would rate Paulo C. as a 5 out of 5 only because 5 is the highest I can go. He is an outstanding guide with extraordinary knowledge of Lisbon and Portuguese history, which made our tour all the more interesting. He was also flexible in adapting the itinerary to our particular needs. I highly recommend Paulo.

I was leading a group of 10. Paulo C set up 2 days - city - countryside - seashore - Everything EXCELLANT - My group had been on a Rome tour, 5 shore excursions in Spain & Morocco, and ALL said the Lisbon tours were THE BEST. I and we - HIGHLY RECOMMEND PAULO. Paulo recommended restaurants for our 2 group dinners, and even called for us and made a reservation, at a place where the request from an English only speaker from the USA might have been declined (National Holiday)

Tour: Lisbon & Sintra (unesco) - Private Shore Excursion, Lisbon, Lisboa, Portugal
Date: Oct 20/19

Our day with Paulo in Lisbon & Sintra was one of our favorites during our trip. We only had a short time in port that day and he was able to show us everything (and more) that we wanted to see. Paulo is very friendly and knowledgeable. He took us to see things that are not in the typical tourist areas and we felt like we had a better understanding of the area and people. We had two in our group with walking issues and he was able to accommodate them as well. We highly recommend Paulo!

Paulo was fabulous. His knowledge of history, architecture and "everything Portugal" was amazing. We highly recommend him. There was no question we asked that he didn't know. He obviously loves Portugal and his job....and it shows!

Paulo was an outstanding guide. He is extremely knowledgeable. He took us to all of the highlights of Lisbon and then took us to places only local people would go. In a short amount of time he made us feel as if we lived there. It was a wonderful experience.

Paulo was a wonderful tour guide. He was very early to meet us and ran past the time scheduled for us to return. His love for his city and country shine through in all he does and says. He took us to some of the places only locals know about and shared a wealth of information on the beautiful city of LIsbon. He is a complete gentleman and could not wait to open our car door and help us out at each stop. He gave us a great desire to spend more time in Portugal. We would highly recommend him!

A 3 hour walking tour of Evora was great! Articulant and easy to understand, well paced with history, Paulo pointed out details we would never have noticed. Knowledgeable about Evora's ancient and modern 20th century history set in Portugal's larger context. Very informative and enjoyable. Highly recommended.

Will man sich als deutschsprachiger Tourist mit Portugal und speziell mit Lissabon vertraut machen, dann muss man unbedingt Paulo verlangen. Er vesteht es einem Portugal in Vergangenheit und Gegenwart vorzustellen, und dies gar durch Besuche entsprechender Örtlichkeiten verständlich zu machen. Wir können deshalb Paulo jederman bestens empfehlen. Danke Paulo für die tolle Tour!

I have read many reviews over the years and those I read about Paulo were right on. He was a wonderful and knowledgeable guide. His knowledge the past and present of Portugal is encyclopedic. And, all the while, the information is interesting and his presentation style is engaging. Several times during our day with Paulo, we would say to each other, "This is the best guide that we have ever hired".

5 stars. One of the most knowledgeable guides ever. 31 years experience. In depth knowledge of Lisbon and Portugal, with a lot of great historical facts. We also toured some sites not originally part of the plan and it was great. Well worth it!

Paulo was a godsend. After flight cancellations and delays, I contacted Paulo to advise that I possibly would not make it to the Algarve for our tour. Paulo comforted me and assured me we would find a way. And indeed, when I arrived in Lisbon with little hope of making it to the Algarve for our tour, Paulo offered to pick me up in Lisbon and take me in his car to my hotel in the Algarve. Paulo did so, and, I am forever grateful. Additionally, Paulo provided excellent guide services the next two days.

Paulo is a very experienced and knowledgeable guide who met us at the end of a cruise in Lisbon for a 6 hour city tour. We managed to see almost all of the "must do" sights plus fit in a nice break for coffee and pastéis de Belém. Paulo also took us to a few of his favourite less well know places in Lisbon that were beautiful, uncrowded and still very interesting. He has a definite opinion on sights he felt were worth seeing and ones that were not. A very worthwhile and efficient few hours spent.

Paulo is prompt, kind and very well mannered. He posessess an extensive working knowledge of his country and the world at large. Armed with his intellect, we were treated to a most unusual tour that really gave us some insight into life in Lisbon. The sights were amazing, and the pacing of the tour was spot on. Paulo reads his audience, checks in and modifies the tour accordingly. The time flew by and left us wanting to explore more of Lisbon and the other cities & towns of Portugal. Thanks Paulo!

Paulo is an incredible guide. From the very beginning, he went over our itinerary with great care, outlining exactly what we were going to see and do on our excursion that day. Paulo has a way with his tour guiding - he speaks so thoughtfully that you follow the historical importance of each location with ease. Paulo is also super knowledgeable so at the end of the day, we really absorbed so much useful information. Paulo even added in a few surprise stops which was so nice of him. I highly recommend him!

We enjoyed this tour very much. Paulo is very knowledgeable about Portugal in general and specifically about these four little towns. Fátima was very moving and beautiful. Batalha has a lot of history (but is someplace we probably could have skipped). Nazaré is a great beach town with very impressive cliffs and waves. Óbidos is a very quaint walled city where we could have spent more time. Paulo was a very good driver and very professional.
