Gloria was our guide on Jun 5, 2018 for a Jewish Lisbon half day tour and again on Jun 6, for a half day Sintra and Cascais tour. Gloria is an interesting and informative guide, and a delightful travel companion. She quickly understood our interests, and tailored our visits accordingly. Our particular interests in the Jewish history was well served, including an enlightening visit to the synagogue. I am partially disabled, and she ensured that my access requirements were taken care of. Thanks Gloria.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a delight to meet both of you Charles. I hope to meet you soon again. All the best.

Gloria picked us up at our hotel for a half day tour of Sintra & Cascais. We had a wonderful day before with her exploring Lisbon (see other review), and this jaunt to the coast was equally great. The UNESCO town of Sintra was wonderful and is worthy of a trip by itself, but we needed to move on to the town of Cascais. Again, Gloria was able to bring the town to life with her knowledge of the area and her personality. We would highly recommend her if you are going to the Lisbon area.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for coming to Lisbon, choosing me and sharing experiences. I also got richer by spending time to meet you. Also the best. AND I'll see you soon

This tour was just fabulous. Gloria was enthusiastic, knowledgable, fun, and so accommodating. The tour exceeded our expectations, and she even gave us pointers for the rest of our trip. We look forward to booking another one with Gloria the next time we're in Portugal.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your nice comments. It was a pleasure to meet the three of you girls and to help you with some planning. Hope to see you again soon. Warm regards

I have taken a number of yours with guides from Tours By Locals, and all have been excellent. However, my partner and I thought that Gloria was the best yet. She is extremely knowledgeable, perceptive, understands all the nuances of the English language, is so enthusiastic about her work which makes the tour even more fun, and is just a wealth of interesting information. She also has a healthy sense of humor and just made us feel at home in her country.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your kind words. I hope you can come back and next time i'D love to meet your 4 paws family :)

Gloria was an excellent guide. She was very accomodating - allowing us to select the places we'd like to see. She had an excellent knowledge of this history of Sintra and the Lisbon area. If we are ever in the Lisbon area again, we would request her services and we will recommend Gloria and toursbylocals.com to friends and family. She made our short stay in Lisbon wonderful.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Ruth. It was a pleasure to meet both you and Ray. I hope to see you soon :)

It was a fabulous tour. She was so helpful and informative. She was especially patient considering I had 2 children and an elderly woman. I will most certainly contact her again in the future for another tour. Thank you again for such a memorable experience.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much. Your children were adorable and so were you and your mum. It was a pleasure to show a little bit of my country. I 'll see you soon to show you more of it. Regards for all of you. Gloria
