Her knowledge, her patience, her clear and informative narrations, her enthusiasm and her engaging personality made these excursions the absolute highlights of our 2 1/2 week adventure. We would recommend her highly to anyone planning to visit Lisboa.

Ines was great!! We've toured with Ines before and she is excellent. Very knowledgeable and fun. Takes her customer's needs and wants into consideration. The best!!! This tour was interesting as we got out of Lisbon. Included wine tasting, cheese tasting, tile factory, all small private businesses. Good to meet locals. Great scenery in the Natural Park. We would definitely book Ines again. She has a ton of knowledge about all the locations visited. Her tours are like touring with a good friend.

Booked Ines for this 3 1/2 hour Lisbon walking tour. Toured with Ines also in 2016. Excellent both times. Ines very sensitive to customer interests/physical needs. Adjusts tour as needed. Knows all the local quaint spots/restaurants. Provided excellent historical and contemporary information. Would love to try her Food Tour next time. Has a car so can also do trips outside Lisbon to Obidos, Alcobaca, Nazare. We thoroughly enjoyed our tours with Ines and highly recommend her. Would book her again.

She went out of her way to provide recommendations and suggestions for our time spent following our tours - from additional sight-seeing options to shopping.

From the moment we met Ines she captivated us with her knowledge and stories. The tour she designed for us met our needs perfectly! The history of the beautiful Pena Palace, a delicious lunch at a local cafe, traditional pastries from a local bakery, sightseeing along the coast and Photo Ops at the westernmost point of continental Europe, a lesson in cork trees and productiion, and booking of a Fado performance in the Alfama district of Lisbon.

Inês was a first class tour guide for our tour of the Pena Palace in Sintra, Portugal. She picked us up promptly at our hotel, then en-route to our destination she gave us a lot of history and information. She spoke very clearly. She gave us a guided tour of the palace pointing out many things we would have missed on our own, and knew how and when to best time our visit. I would look to hire her again for other tours in Lisbon and the surrounding area.

My 3rd time in Lisbon, 1st time with my wife - and my 3rd tour with Ines. Very first thing I did after our trip was confirmed was to book a tour with Ines so my wife will have the same great experience I had before. And like my 2 previous tours, this was also a wonderful experience! Ines is friendly and her knowledge of historical/present facts about Portugal really stands out. After doing many tours through TBL in different countries, I can say that Ines is among the most knowledgeable guides I had with.

Ines was a doll! Met us at our hotel on our schedule, she was smiles and energy. We took public transportation away from the touristy part of town and into neighborhood streets. We had sweets, canned fish, ham's, cheeses, scampi, clams, local sodas and beers at 5 or 6 different stops. It was our first day in Lisbon so we got a great start on what to eat, where to shop, what to do.

Visite très structurée, peut-être un peu trop pour notre groupe avec de jeunes ados/ adultes mais tout de même fort apréciée.

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!

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!

Our walking tour of Lisbon with Ines was absolutely fantastic! We felt like at the end of the tour that we had really been shown all of the highlights of Lisbon! The stop for a custard tart and a coffee midway through the tour was a delicious break and we loved being able to see the tarts being made! Lisbon is a delightful city, but being able to see it through the eyes of such a charming native as Ines made it so much more special to us!

We had an Amazing day with Ines on this tour to Sintra and Obidos! Ines is possibly the best guide we have ever had the pleasure of getting to know! She tailored our day so that we would get the maximum benefit of our time and took the time to answer questions we had on topics of particular interest to us, such as the traditional music of Portugal, the Fado! She pointed out a great place for lunch, joined us for lunch, and kept us entertained the entire day and into the evening!

Ines was fantastic! We landed at 7 am, completely jet lagged from our flight from Denver and Ines kept us wide awake with her interesting and perfectly paced tour of Lisbon. I have a terrible sense of direction, but after our tour with Ines I could actually get around without a map (or cell phone!). Thank you, Ines, for a wonderful start to our trip!

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.

Inez is an excellent guide - she provides a panoramic perspective of this beautiful city while sharing her vast, in-depth knowledge of its heritage. Seeing the vibrant history of the city through her eyes was a delight! She tailors her presentation and pace to the needs of the group and is responsive to requests for diversions and additional information. Her choice for our lunch restaurant was superb, allowing us to taste local cuisine. We highly recommend her and will use her next time we are here.

It was my 2nd tour with Ines, and just like my 1st tour with her, this one was also a wonderful experience! Ines is extremely knowledgeable and she explains facts with great clarity. I learned so much about Portugal's monarchical past and architectural styles, while mesmerizing the awesome views, monuments, and artifacts. Despite of the rain, the tour went very well and enjoyable. I already did several tours through TBL in different countries, and I can say that Ines is among the best guides I had with.

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.

Ines is very knowledgeable about the sights and sounds of Lisbon. Her genuine enthusiasm and love of Lisbon came through in everything she did and said. She took time to explain, in fluent English, all that we were seeing in as much detail as we needed. Her personality is so outgoing and compassionate that to spend a day with Ines is to make a friend for life. We highly recommend ToursbyLocals and the only guide we would ever recommend is Ines V.

Inês treated our family of 6 (4 adults, kids 5 & 2 yrs) to a special day exploring Lisbon & Sintra and learning about the rich history of Portugal. She is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about her country and its history, and was simply a delight to get to know as a person. Inês was punctual, polite, and accommodating, and her car was immaculate and comfortable. She was willing to adjust our itinerary to meet the needs of our young children. Highly recommend Inês and a Sintra visit! Thank you!

We spent the day with Ines visiting Sintra and the coast near Lisbon. Ines is a fabulous guide and her knowledge of history is unsurpassed. After Sintra we continued our coastal journey towards Cascais and enjoyed many perfect photo opportunities along the rugged coast. Ines possesses not just a great knowledge of history, but the ability to be flexible according to your needs while touring. Her love of the area is apparent, and we left with a true admiration of Lisbon and its environs.

We were overwhelmingly pleased with the tour Ines prepared for us with very short notice. She is the best tour guide we have had - Lisbon born, she breathes the city and knows every detail imaginable about it from an historical perspective. She also adds layers of information about then and now which we found fascinating. Her personality is perfect for the role of Lisbon Ambassador. We almost passed on the opportunity to tour and now that we have done the tour with Ines we are forever grateful.

Everywhere we walked in the city she was enthusiastically greeted by other tour guides. As it was very hot, she kept us in the shade as much as possible and provided ample opportunity to sit a bit.

We cannot say enough about our guide, Ines. Lisbon just would't have been as spectacular as it was without her! Super informative, she is a walking history book. Our five year old was enamoured with her stories of Portuguese Royalty and we loved marvelling at the wonderful architecture and historical sights she shared with us. Probably the best tour guide we have ever had (and we have had many.)Thank you so much for your time with us, we cannot wait to come back now, and are planning our next stay already
