My group and I had an excellent Lisbon walking tour with Silvia. Her knowledge of the city is incredible and she shared information about the history of Lisbon and how it has changed up to the current time. We learned a lot from her. Silvia answered our questions, was very professional and her English is very, very good. Great day with Silvia!

Silvia was the BEST!! She was full of enthusiasm and energy, and shared her knowledge of Lisbon and its culture and food in a fun and memorable way. She answered our many questions with helpful information, and offered suggestions to help us see the most during our stay. The places we stopped for "bites" were local spots that had a lot of flavor in addition to the flavor of the food. Silvia was a master at getting the food to magically appear when we arrived. Love to connect with Silvia again!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Jill, I am speechless.... honestly, I'm! Such nice, warm, amazing commentary. I fill so bless, so grateful right now. I love what I do, but such touching commentaries, and when I realized that the time we spend together was outstanding (even with some rain) touch my heart and make me the happiest person in the world. Deeply from my heart, Thank you so much. Obrigadinha :)

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Marshall and.... Benfica :)
This tour offered a very good basic introduction to Lisbon and we found Silvia to be proficient in English and very knowledgeable especially on historical information. The tour involved significant walking but she kept an appropriate pace.She was flexible and made some adjustments to the standard route to accommodate our interests. Finally, she went out of her way to provide train information for our subsequent travel to Porto including ticket purchase.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you again!!! :)

Anne ForbesUnited States
Sylvia was a perfect guide for us. A walking tour that took us from a small, old neighborhood of the city to the city center. We covered so much ground walking the around of the city center. She introduced us to Fada music, delicious sweet and savory Portuguese specialties. Sylvia speaks perfect English as well as several other languages. You'll be in very good company with Slyvia as your personal guide in Lisobon. Highly recommended!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Anne for your kind words. I'm so happy that you enjoyed the tour and discovered a little more about Lisbon :)

Silvia makes you feel like you are a family member. She has a friendly countenance, loves Portugal and wants to make sure you get to experience it. The walking tour gives you a in depth look of Lisbon. The old part is not to be missed, the winding streets cheating the hills by using funiculars and elevators.
Dorothy LundellUnited Kingdom
Silvia was excellent. She was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. She is a wonderful supporter of Lisbon and makes you want to come back! She looked after us very well as we were quite tired from a long day and needed to go slowly and avoid some of the very steep parts of the city. Would highly recommend her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Dorothy for your kind words, they are so important to me and made my day!!! I hope you are enjoying the city :)
Jimmy ThompsonUnited States
Our tour guide was very good and knowledgeable. Took us to the areas we had requested and we learned a lot about these areas that we would not have learned on a regular tour. Well worth the money
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your kind words Jim. I really hope you have appreciated the tour also in the Douro Valley and had lots of port wine :) Obrigada
We thoroughly enjoyed our walk around Lisbon with Silvia. Her knowledge was endless. She knew about everything we asked her .She pointed out and showed us so many points of interest, that you would never see from the top of a bus . I would highly recommended Silvia. We are hoping to get back to Lisbon again soon and will definitely be doing a another walk around Lisbon. There are so many places to see and learn about .
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Monica, Thank you so much again for your kind words!!! It's amazing when people appreciate what we do, how we do it, and of course Lisbon it self. Hope to see you again in Lisbon :) Kind regards for you and your family.

Silvia gave our family of 6 the perfect 1/2 day tour of Lisbon. She was a delight to be with! We learned so much in such an enjoyable walk. Anyone isw lucky to be able to have her as their guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Janice, Thanks you so much for your lovely words. I'm sure your cruise was great :) Hope to see you again in Lisbon! Obrigada
We arrived in Lisbon on a national holiday so, with vehicular traffic limited, Silvia suggested a walking tour. It was the perfect introduction to this beautiful and vibrant city. Silvia was knowledgeable, pleasant, and very flexible to our preferences. She was also wonderfully patient when we discovered a shop we found difficult to leave. We recommend this tour for those with limited time or for anyone wishing only to get a taste of Lisbon, And we recommend Silvia as a 5-star guide.
