Jane HardyUnited States
Rui was very nice and extremely helpful. He is knowledgeable about Lisbon and its history. I have found, however, that guides are best when they find a thread of a story that they use to traslate history. Rui had all of the dates and events - but not the story. English was excellent.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jane, I would like to thank you for your kind words and positive feedback. However, I am sad to see that you were a bit disappointed with my approach and perhaps would have favored a more poetic tone to the tour. Please understand that during your tour the input I was getting from all the participants led me to believe a more pragmatic approach was better suited to the needs of the group as a whole. I do hope for the chance to host you again and showcase a different style of presentation.
