Date: Nov 8/18

Miguel provide my group of 18 people with an outstanding tour. Our journey from Porto to Lisboa with stops in Aveiro and Fatima plus his luncheon arrangements far exceeded our expectations. His knowledge, his patience, his clear and informative narrations, his enthusiasm and his engaging personality made this excursions one of the absolute highlights of our 2 1/2 week adventure. We would recommend him highly to anyone planning to visit this part of Portugal.

Miguel, thank you for a fascinating day trip to Coimbra and Aveiro. Your knowledge of the history of Coimbra was wonderful and I would definitely recommend you. You chose an excellent restaurant for us in Aveiro for lunch - one typical of the region rather than touristey!

I have used other ToursByLocal guides and they have been good, but our experience with Miguel took it to an entirely new level. His love and passion for the history, culture and beauty of Portugal shines through. From the small local restaurants with incredible food to and amazing wineries with breath taking views in the Douro, Miguel helped us put together a trip where we felt like family. Truly a trip of a lifetime.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind comments. Your party was wonderful to host, it was pleasure to meet you ladies and show you all the best of the country. Until next time! Obrigado

Truly delightful day. Miguel is a gracious host and guide, informative and engaging. He picked us up in Gaia and we were able to see all the highlights of Porto and the beach nearby. We enjoyed a delicious typical sandwich at lunch, he gave us a number of choices but we chose to taste a Francensinha, and ended the day with a wine tasting. The communication prior to the tour was exceptional and all was well planned and perfect. Highly recommend taking this private tour with our new friend Miguel.

We engaged Miguel for six days, having him meet us in three ports. We had some specific request. Through several emails he put together what we wanted. The days were well spent he changed the itinerary at the drop of a hat to capitalize on weather or avoid crowds. With many tours by locals over the past three years he is one on the best we've had.

Miguel was a great guide and fun to be with. He met us in Lisbon and drove us to Porto visiting Coimbra and Aveiro where we had lunch. His knowledge of Portuguese history was exceptional. He spent the next three days with us visiting the beautiful Douro Valley,where we had an exceptional lunch at a winery, visited Guimaraes, wandered the streets of Porto, and ate at great restaurants. Miguel went out of his way to make sure we saw everything we wished and to made our tours as easy on us possible.

Miguel was simply outstanding. He took a party of 3 of us and adapted to our needs. Being the one Jewish guest, he was able to provide me with an unbelievable history lesson. In fact, he had a tremendous knowledge of portuguese history. He also took us to 3 great vineyards, including one very small and exceptional port maker. Could not ask for a better visit.

I can not say enough good things about Miguel and this experience. After spending 6 hours exploring Porto I has a real feel for all parts of the city, its history, the people and culture. Miguel is extremely knowledgeable passionate and just a great person to spend time with while experiencing Porto. My only regret is not allowing sufficient time in my itinerary to all for an extra night to have Miguel show me the Douro Valley.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: There is always next time! I look forward it it. It was great to show you around. Obrigado!

Miguel was our guide for a day in the Douro Valley. Miguel's vehicle was clean and comfortable and he shared his knowledge about the wine industry, Portuguese history and current events, and information about the Douro Valley. Some highlights of the day were our delicious, relaxed lunch in Pinhao, a visit to the Saturday market in Amarante, stunning views of the terraced grapevines rising above the Douro, and 2 stops for wine and port tasting. We would highly recommend Miguel's tours.

Our tour with Miguel was outstanding. He was an excellent guide and tailored the trip to our interests. He was prompt, professional, spoke excellent English and was very personable. His knowledge of the history and culture made the trip much more interesting than simply being driven from one location to the other. Highly recommended.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I really appreciate your kind comments. It was a true pleasure to host you. Muito obrigado!

Miguel was terrific we asked to visit specific sites and he made the arrangements. The visit to the synagogue had both meaning and enrichment to our Porto experiences. His knowledge of history and hidden gems of the City and surroundings made for interesting connections to other parts of the "new world". Great day. Obligato Miquel

Miguel is an amazing guide! We were flying into Lisbon but spending the first part of our stay in Porto, so this transfer directly from the Lisbon airport all the way to Porto was a great alternative to a train ride. Plus, we stopped in towns that we would have missed otherwise, including the legendary university at Coimbra. Miguel joined us for lunch in Coimbra for our first meal in Portugal, showing us important dishes and dining traditions. We were jet lagged & tired but Miguel made it an amazing day!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a great day! Thanks for your appreciation, it was my pleasure. Obrigado!

Our tour with Miguel was perfect. He and his driver picked up 9 of us at our rented apartment in Porto and dropped us off at our rented apartment in Lisbon. Along the way he guided us through Aveiro and Fatima. Upon our request, he brought to a small chapel right on the beach a few miles from Porto. Allowing us to customize our tour and by having it private for just our family was what made this tour/transfer extra special. Miguel was very informative and patient allowing us to take many many pictures.
