Patricia HennessyUnited States
We were very pleased with this tour. Gus was prompt and professional. He was flexible with our itinerary and he was very helpful with making sure my mother, who has mobility issues, fully enjoyed the tour. We hit all the major sites included in the tour and were duly impressed. Gus was great at explaining the history of what we were seeing and how it all tied into the history of Lisbon and Portugal. He is very proud of his country and rightfully so. I would not hesitate to recommend Gus as a tour guide.

Augusto was amazing! He picked us up at the cruise terminal in Lisbon where we began our tour of the city.He made our day exceptional. His knowledge of the area was great and his English was perfect. This tour was only four hours because our ship did not dock till 4:00 pm. We had an option of taking the tour offered by the cruise line. However who would want to do that when you would be on a bus with 50 people at a much higher cost. The bus tour would have never seen the places Augusto took us.
Anton WaserUnited States
Augusto provided a vibrant tour of Lisbon for the limited time our group had for this great city. He was personable and engaged in all aspects of the areas visited.

Barry BryanUnited States
Augusto was the perfect guide for a beautiful afternoon in Lisbon. His language skills are outstanding and his knowledge of the area was excellent. I especially enjoyed the pastries and attractions in Belém. I highly recommend him.
Ann ShteynblikUnited States
This was a very pricey tour but for what we paid for it we really did not get anything we would not get on a hop on hop off tour. There was very little information and history. We really expected so much more for this price. Unfortunately the tour left us underwhelmed.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ann Shteynblik, Thank you for your review and i sincerely apologize that this tour was not what you expected. I have studied this tour "start to finish". For a 10 people group we needed a mini-bus so the quote naturally increases. My tours are always very informative and on that day i felt a little difficult keeping the adults and the kids together with the same level of interest. I will keep the hard working and improving my tours to be always part of the best guides. Sincerely, Augusto
Ellen CaseyUnited States

Kimberly EversonUnited States
Augusto is a friendly, well informed young man and we had a terrific day half day with him in Lisbon. We have used ToursByLocals many, many times and Augusto was certainly among the best of our guides.

Ronald ViggianiUnited States
Augusto is a really great tour guide and I very much enjoyed the full day I spent with him in Lisbon and Belem. He is very knowledgeable about his city; his command of Portuguese history was impressive. He was a very professional guide and very attentive to the needs of his guests.

Marc G.United States
Augusto was a great guide, giving us a wonderful overview of Lisbon. He is both bright and personable demonstrating a deep appreciation of the history and culture of his city. Although our flight from the US arrived 45 minutes early, he had monitored the flight information and was waiting for us at the airport way ahead of our arranged meeting time. The tour he provided was great and we thoroughly enjoyed our time with him.

Vivian MontanoUnited States
Augusto is very passionate about Lisbon , it's people , history and culture . Had a great intro tour to the highlights of the city in a minivan with AC which is a must on a hot day. Very willing to customize as needed and open to any changes along the way. He is also a good driver which you need in a lot of those narrow streets going up and down the hills. We were very glad we were in a car since walking on a hot day would have been a bit too exhausting. Highly recommend !
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Vivian, great half day tour, learnt so much with you! Thanks for booking. The best to you, Augusto.
Leslie KanieckiUnited States
If Augusto is available, you must book him, seriously he is a 5 star tour guide. Very informative about every site we visited and he was very flexible based on what we want to see and the pace we wanted to see.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Leslie Kaniecki, thanks for your review (looks awesome)!!! If i have the chance to visit Colorado i will let you know!!! Thanks for being so easy going, i enjoyed the day as well!!! Happy travels!!!
John ColemanUnited States
You can't go wrong with him. My wife has trouble walking-he adjusted tour- very knowledgable about area. Highly recommend him
James LawsonUnited States
This was our second day with Augusto. This day we focused on the city of Lisbon. Augusto knows all the back roads to get to every landmark within the city. He is a wealth of knowledge and was always ready to take pictures for us. We would use him again anytime and highly recommend him to anyone.
Augusto is fun and enjoyable to be with. Had a great time with him. Recommendable
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear June, thanks for your kind words. Happy travels, Augusto.
Sanjay AminUnited States
Gus was simply the best we could have asked for. He is quite knowledgeable regarding history and was very kind to share with us. Absolutely flexible in regards to tour itinerary allowing us to see more sites that we were interested in. GO Portugal tonight, Gus! Hope they win tonight's game. Thanks again. Sanjay, Rita and Sarju
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Sanjay, thanks for this great review. Yes, the game was BIG, an amazing atmosphere in the stadium and we won the game: Portugal 3-0 Hungry. I mean, as European Champions we performed accordingly. All the best for all.
Terence ChuUnited States
Excellent guide. Very professional
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Mr. Terence, it was definitely a great morning. Have a nice flight back home, all the best to all of you and thanks for everything. Augusto
Richard KerrUnited States
Augusto was prompt and picked us up at our hotel lobby as requested. He speaks excellent English and has a degree in tourism. His knowledge of the city was extensive and we were able to go places that motor coaches could not due to the narrow roads leading to them. In all, it was a most enjoyable day. We saw and learned lot and were able to plan what to do for the remainder of our stay in Lisbon.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Richard, thanks for your comment, "little things mean a lot" that's the same with the little streets. We all had a fun day. Thank you very much and best wishes.
Eric TaylorWest Grove, PA, United States
A great way to start our visit to Lisbon after an over night flight from the US. Nicely paced, covering highlights of the city, including a stop at the Pastry shop in Belem. Augusto has a great knowledge of the city and its history, and also gave us some good restaurant recommendations. Augusto gave us enough confidence to spend an unstructured day by ourselves, to include using the subway, to explore some of the sights he highlighted.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Mr. Eric, thank you very much for your words. It was a pleasant day with you. After a Lisbon Tour with me you are ready to enjoy the city as a real local, that's the real goal and I am very glad that you felt confident, It is very rewarding. Thanks again and all the best to you.
Lauren SachsUnited States
Augusto is absolutely amazing! My husband and I visited Lisbon for our 10th anniversary and couldn't have asked for a better experience. Augusto is so knowledgeable and so lovely to be around. Plus-he is a great photographer!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Lauren, it was really great spending the days with both of you. Wish you all the best.
We had a wonderful time visiting Lisbon and region with Augusto. Being a big group of 12 adults, Augusto has been very efficient and flexible during our 4 days to balance the visits and break periods. Augusto will take you to the must see places, but also remotely visiting villages or persons who represents the traditional heart of Portugal. Augusto has also never counted his hours and was always smiling and very friendly with all of us. Lisbon was wonderful and with Augusto it was exceptional.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Frederic, thank you so much for your words, this is very rewarding for me. I really want to show all my travelers the must places, main attractions and also "behind the scenes", that's the only way to get the real feel of our Culture. I wish you all the best to all of you and thanks again. Kindest regards, Augusto
