Had a great day with Paulo! We learned about Lisbon and Portugal from the moment he picked us up to the moment the tour ended. We gained a greater perspective of Portugal's history as well as seeing monuments and local sights. His recommendation for lunch in a local food market was a good experience. Paulo's passion for Portugal is evident. I would highly recommend him!

Paulo was wonderful. His car was very clean and he was very knowledgeable about his city. Our flight was delayed by 4 hours which interrupted our tour but he did his best to accommodate us and still show us an authentic Lisbon that we would not have discovered on our own as tourists.

We had 6 days in Lisbon with two other couples. Paulo was our guide for three days during that time. He is a superb guide. He drove us in his very comfortable van with microphone so we could all hear his narrative. He so knowledgeable about the history and culture of Portugal. He had a special talent for avoiding the major tourist crowds by timing our itinerary and taking us to out of the way places. We saw most of the usual sites but he gave us valuable insight into his proud culture as well.

What can I say. Paulo truly gave us a 5 star tour of Lisbon. He showed us the touristic sites as well as off the radar sites that are not advertised. I took this tour with my family of 4 which consisted of 2 history buff adult children. We all absorbed the knowledge that Paulo threw at us. He has vast experience and knowledge which we benefited from. We all recommend Paulo for this tour. I am 100% certain that all of his tours would be high quality. His van was also very comfortable.

Paul is a gem. We learned so much from him about Lisbon and the surrounding areas. When I mentioned that I wanted to eat Piri Piri, he found an excellent restaurant. You can't go wrong booking with Paul.
Ben S.United States
Paulo was organized and knowledgeable. He included both obvious and lesser known points of interest, which was great. His tour could even be better if he was more responsive to questions. His car was very comfortable, and he knew his way around the area impeccably.
Robyn WeinbergUnited States
Paulo was a delight. Knowledgeable, personable and easy to understand. We really felt like we came away from Lisbon knowing the history both past and present and having seen a great deal of what the locals see as well as the important tourist attractions. We are convinced Tours by Locals is the way to go on future trips.

Patricia HintonUnited States
Paolo is an experienced and knowledgeable guide who we would highly recommend. He took us to some well-known sites as well as some not often visited by tourists. He was also flexible, modifying his schedule to give us more time where we asked. He provided a great intro of Lisbon to help us get oriented early in our visit. Would also be great if you just have one day in Lisbon.

We had a great day seeing Lisbon with Paulo. He had a fantastic knowledge of this beautiful city and so many other things. It was a great day of touring and we appreciated seeing things that we would have missed without a private guide. I would recommend Paulo to anyone looking for an excellent guide. Although we used Paulo to show us Lisbon, I would trust that he can guide most places in Portugual as he has lived in so many areas and been a guide for 28 years.
Barry ShapiroUnited States
Paulo is a superbly gifted tour guide who made our visit to Lisbon very special. We would never have been able to see so much in such a short period of time without him. He is extremely knowledgeable, speaks excellent English and was very kind to us, making sure that we enjoyed our visit, right down to introducing us to the best custard pastries in the city. We cannot recommend Paulo more highly. You can book his services knowing that you are going to be in the hands of a true professional.
John PierceUnited States
Excellent in every respect. Intelligent, friendly, well informed. A very pleasant experience.
Paulo must be be one the best organized guides we have had the pleasure of being with. In short, he showed us everything we wanted to visit; and we avoided other tours & tourists at every location! If you are visiting Lisbon or the surrounds, Paulo experience makes all the difference. Could not recommend him more highly ... a truly fantastic guide. George & Diana Shirling, Australia

Paulo is probably one of the best tour guides we have ever had. He is knowledgeable, loves his city, and that comes across in everything he tells you. His style is smooth and perfect for people that want to get the most of the all this amazing city has to offer. NO KIDDING--BOOK WITH PAULO.
Douglas GueretteUnited States
Paulo was very knowledgeable, knew all parts of the city, and was willing to go off the beaten path to make our tour experience exceptional. His facility with English is very good. We enjoyed his company, and would definitely recommend him to anyone.n
Our first trip (out of three) with Paulo was a direct 'spot on' hit: all six of us (2 parents and 4 adult children just loved the guide: very attentful and attentive, a real educated professional with 26 years of experience in guiding skills, a nice air-conditioned van with free WIFI and leather seating. Best comment one can give to a guide is: would recommend him to any group anytime, not only in Lisboa but in the whole of Portugal, proud about his country and with a reason !!!

Louise CampbellUnited Kingdom
Paulo was an excellent guide for our day in Lisbon. He was particularly kind and helpful to my mother in law and her friend both of whom are in their 80s and have mobility problems. He managed to park near enough to all of the attractions so we could see as much as possible in the time available. He was knowledgeable about the history of Lisbon and conveyed his love of the city to us. Thank you for a memorable day in Lisbon.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mrs. Campbell Thank you for your nice comment. It was a pleasure to guide you here in Lisbon. I wish you all the best in life. You will always have an open door here. Kind regards Paulo C.
Monique N.United States
We just couldn't say enough good things about Paulo! On our second day with Paulo, we had to check out of our cruise ship and check in to our hotel. Paulo agreed to carry our luggage in his van during the tour and dropped us off at our hotel at the end of the tour, saving us quite a bit of time. He really took care of us like we were his friends and family. As I had mentioned in the other tour review, Paulo was the best! He made the tour very interesting and we could feel how proud he was of his country.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mrs. Nguyen Thank you for this nice review. You know that you have always an open door here with us. Kind regards from Portugal Paulo C.

Paulo was extremely knowledgeable and very professional throughout our 2 day tour of Lisbon. He was recommended to us by friends and he fulfilled all of our expectations. He has a very broad historical background which made our visit to Lisbon more than just a sightseeing trip.
