My wife was ill so it was just Rui and me. It was a long walking tour but covered a lot of ground. The Maritime Museum was fascinating. Rui was a great guide and very knowledgable.

Excellent. Very proud of his city and extremely knowledgeable on national historical periods as well as current political trends. His English is nearly flawless. A most enjoyable tour. One tip: have him meet you at your hotel; we wasted time trying to find his suggested meeting point in the city.

I highly recommend Rui for a walking tour of Lisbon. Rui was a delight. He showed us parts of Lisbon that were off the beaten track as well as the typical must sees. He was flexible with our schedule and helped us plan a last minute trip to Sinatra.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Katharine, I would like to thank you for sharing your experience on my walking tour. And I am happy my recommendations on Sintra were helpful. Warmest Regards, Rui F.

We had such a wonderful time touring Lisbon with Rui. His knowledge of the city and the country and its history was amazing and made the tour fascinating. His added knowledge of America and its history made for a great conversation on topics of both past and current. At the end of the tour he recommended a lunch spot that was a great place away from the crowds and had the local feel in both atmosphere and menu.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mark, Thank you for your review of my tour. I am thrilled you enjoyed the experience and the lunch recommendation. Warmest Regards, Rui F.

Rui was great. We booked at the last minute and he was totally accommodating. He gave us a great education about Portugal's complicity in the slave trade, and also the world power that Portugal was at that time. Definitely a worthwhile tour. Paul

Our family loved Rui's tour! He knew plenty of history and was very engaging. Someone in our group got sick during the tour, and he was very concerned for her and helped to get her back to the apartment. I would definitely recommend his tour to anyone visiting Lisbon!

Rui was really excellent. Very friendly, incredibly knowledgeable (I kept trying to ask the most detailed questions and was never able to catch him out!). We saw the "big art" as well as the smaller more day to day things that are important to provide the flavour of the place. We've done private tours before and they make such a difference to the experience. Its not even an option, and Rui was a perfect choice. The lunch restaurant recommendation was perfect. What a great intro to Lisbon.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Christine, I would like to thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts on my tour! Your support really means a lot to me and I am thrilled that you and your family enjoyed the experience! Warmest regards from your guide in Lisbon, Rui F.

Rui is a highly knowledgeable and informative guide. There is so much to see and do in Lisbon and Rui tailored the experience to each of us. He is informative, funny and flexible! We truly enjoyed exploring the different areas of the city hearing local insights and suggestions. Rui added tour aspects that made the experience interesting to our twenty-four year old son discussing local street art and artists (appreciated this!). A tour with Rui will be the highlight of your trip to Lisbon!

Rui was an outstanding guide. He knows his Lisbon I can tell you that! Unlike other guides who would have read out facts from a sheet he was giving us a real feel of what the city must have been like in the past. He is also a true myth buster which was amazing! We came in a group of 12 and each and everyone of us enjoyed the tour! Couldn't have asked for a better guide:) Definitely do a tour with him:)
