Ines was great. She is a trained expert in the area history and explained it to us as we toured the Sintra area. We were especially very pleased with the tour of Montserrat Palace. She explained its long diverse history and brought to life many of the key players in Portuguese history. Also with the fantastic Pena palace. She was also very sensitive to our needs and recommended great restaurants. She deserves more that 5 stars.

Inês was an absolute wonderful guide. She made it easy for us to find her as we got off the ship. Her English is outstanding. She drives a comfortable & clean van. She is a safe driver which makes a big different in the enjoyment of any tour. She first took us up to high point overlooking the city to point out all the places we would visit. She is knowledgeable about her city. Along with the places we visited She also discussed places we could visit on future visits. We will book again with her.

Ines was a well-prepared, informative, and fun tour guide! From the moment I contacted her, Ines was very responsive and offered a variety of suggestions to help us create a fantastic trip to Fatima and later Sintra. We were traveling with three small children and three grandparents in their early 70s. I was a bit concerned with regard to accessibility, but Ines was flexible and changed any part of the tour that needed adjustments to make sure everyone was comfortable. I highly recommend her!

Inez gave us an amazing tour of Lisbon detailing Portugal's history of which she is very knowledgeable. We were first taken to Sintra, summer home of the Portuguese kings followed by a lovely drive to Caiscais and then along the coast to Lisbon via Blenheim where we saw the magnificent memorial to Henry the Navigator and Portuguese explorers. I would recommend a tour by Inez for a friendly, enjoyable and interesting time in Lisbon.

Inez is an absolute gem and she exceeded our expectations. We had identified a number of things that we wanted to do over a four day period, some of which were not the usual fare, and Inez customized a tour for us that was perfect. She is passionate about Portugal, very well educated, articulate, on-time, and very professional. Having used private guides previously, Inez is absolutely tops. If you are going to Lisbon and want to get the most out of your visit, we would highly recommend Inez.

Ines was the highlight in Portugal! This was our second day with her and we enjoyed it immensely! In a city full of history and hills, she managed to show and explain the whole city to us while minimizing the amount of walking, taking into consideration our age and physical limitations. Her English is perfect, so there were no language issues. It's clear she loves her job, city and country! My saddest moment was saying goodbye! I can recommend Ines without ANY hesitation!

Inês is by far the best tour guide. We had a shortened amount of time in Sintra and she was so smart and adaptive and made it so that we still maximized our visit and left satisfied and happy! She is passionate about the place and the history and really conveys that. What's great is that she's also so easy to talk to, so that the tour is more of a fascinating conversation than a lecture. Definitely book her because there's no one as ardent and knowledgeable, and she knows everything inside and out!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Joanna, Madison and Kumar, Thank you so much for your nice words! I had a great time with you on both of our days together and loved your curiosity and eagerness to learn about our history and culture! It will be a pleasure to have you again when you come back to Lisbon!

And as a plus she's a foodie and dog lover!

From the moment she picked us up at the airport, until she deposited us there later the same day, Ines was an excellent guide. She loves showing you her city, which makes being with her extremely enjoyable. Ines is also very open to feedback along the way, giving you options and then letting you set the pace, pick places to go, etc. It was also wonderful that she was able to receive us on January 2nd, a day when most guides were still enjoying time off. I can't recommend Ines highly enough!

Can not recommend this tour highly enough! Ines is the best guide ( no offense to the many great people we have met )we have come across in our 30 years of travels- she really rocks! Her itinerary is excellent but also flexible/ adaptable, she is fluent in a few languages, all her choices for lunch, snacks etc are top tier, the content she conveys is incredibly rich ( and I believe unique) and the way she does this is absolutely brilliant.. and above all she is a great person!

The four of us enjoyed our day with Ines. She was very knowledgeable about the history of Lisbon and Portugal. She spoke fluent English. She was flexible and was available for ideas. We like to have our meals where the locals eat. At lunch time, Ines told us about places to eat in Sintra. We were passing a local cafe that Ines had eaten at in the past. She stated that they only serve sample meals. We ended up having one of our best meals in Lisbon at that cafe. Thanks again, Ines for a wonderful day.

I learned so much about Portugal's monarchical past and architectural styles, while mesmerizing the awesome views, monuments, and artifacts.

Ines found her niche in private guiding, with her amazing grasp of multiple languages, profound understanding of Lisbon history, and her pleasant demeanor and personal touch. While we had planned to meet in a local square, she met us at the doorway of our rental apartment and stayed past her planned end time to make sure we got to the best vantage point for a sunset over the city. In between, she catered to our desires and limited time in Lisbon so that we could maximize our experience. Awesome.

After Sintra we continued our coastal journey towards Cascais and enjoyed many perfect photo opportunities along the rugged coast.

Ines was a great guide, showing us all the beautiful places on the way to Sintra. Accommodating to our needs and responding to our requests, she provided a great introduction to a most interesting and beautiful country. If you want a friendly guide with knowledge and skill, you will not regret your choice. I would recommend having a driver with eyes on the road as well as a guide giving you complete attention and information.

We had a great day with Ines, she is so professional but at the same time she treated us (my wife, two teenager kids and me) as friends. We did the Special Lisbon/Private Mini Van tour. Having Ines with her van is great to move around Lisbon. We had a great dinner in a restaurant that Ines recommended us, by the way, she is very modest, her Spanish is advanced if not fluent, which we ended speaking with her since it is our first language. She knows exactly what she's talking about. Really recommend her.

Amazing tour!! Ines is the best! Our family had four people on the tour and my father is very limited in mobility. Ines modified our tour and made it a wonderful and interesting experience for all of us. She's super knowledgeable and speaks so well - even better English than us and we're from the USA!! We highly recommend her!!

We enjoyed the tour that was provided to us by Ines. She picked us up on time in a luxury and comfortable tour bus. We went to good highlights of Lisbon, Portugal and utilized the time very well. Ines is knowledgeable of the country, the city and their history. I felt like we were in a World History lecture. This was very good as I brought with me my kids in their teens. A lot of things went back to reality from what they learned at school. I highly recommend Ines as a tour guide. We will do it again with

Ines was an amazing story teller linking her amazing knowledge of history into the evolution of current day Sintra and the area surrounding it. Her vivid descriptions had one feeling you were seeing a movie or living in the past as a participant in Sintra events. We had a great lunch outside of Sintra with wonderful local food. As a travel agent, she exceeded my expectations. Do not hesitate to engage her as your guide!

Inês is professional, informative, fluent in Italian/English, a good driver, & a delight to spend time with. Our visits to the sites were surely richer & more enjoyable because of her guidance. She made so many good suggestions to personalize our tour: timing to avoid the crowds, substituting the mountaintop Sanctuary of Peninha for Cabo da Roca, eating lunch on a quiet beach instead of in the town of Cascais. She also gave us some great tips for our days in Lisbon without her. Thanks for everything,Inês!
