Gloria, our guide in Lisbon for four days was wonderful, thoughtful and always full of ideas that made our trip a memorable experience. We visited Sintra and the National Palace, wandered Jewish Lisbon and Alfama, walked the magnificent medieval streets of Obidos, the Monastery of Alcobaca and the Roman ruins at Evora. Gloria walked the streets of Lisbon with us, finding great restaurants, sharing history, and found the most intimate FADO experience in the City for us. She made our trip a true joy.

We can't say enough about our amazing guide, Gloria. If you get a chance to tour with her, you won't be disappointed! Gloria showed us her beautiful city with the aide of a wonderful driver and we had a great day experiencing Lisbon. We especially loved the restaurant 5 Oceans, a seafood restaurant overlooking the marina and near the bridge built by the same company who constructed the Golden Gate Bridge. Gloria's excellent English and knowledge of history enhanced our perfect day. 10 Stars, Gloria!

Gloria was an absolute delight, as well as a very helpful, considerate, and knowledgeable guide. We both felt we'd really gained a great introduction to Lisbon and learned so much. TBL guides are always good, but Gloria was exceptional!

Booked a half day-tour with Gloria. She showed up at the airport punctually to pick me up. Next, we went to a less touristic spot which offers a stunning and spectacular view of the Lisbon old town. Gloria showed me some key spots in Lisbon old town before driving me back to my hotel. She is friendly, kind, sincere and professional. A tour with Gloria is the best way to kick off your Lisbon holidays!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind words. The first day can be hard because of jat lag. but you did great!

Frank L.United States
Gloria is a real gem. At the last minute we needed to make make some changes to our itinerary and she 'changed gears' flawlessly. Her knowledge is incredible: be it historical, gastronomic, political or just plain local tourism cannot be beat. We have not had a better guide in the 6 years we have been using TBL. No one could have had a better guide/experience in Lisbon than we had with Gloria. It was an awesome & great experience to spend 2 days with her! We will do it again in a 'heart beat' if possible.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a true pleasure to be with you. I think we had a deal that included seeing each other again next year same time same place :) best of luck to both of you and warm regards

Karen BerkowitzUnited States
Gloria was an absolute delight to be with. My husband and I travel around the world and always look for someone special to share their country with us. We had no idea that there was a college degree program in touring and because Gloria had her degree in tourism she had a wealth of historic facts to share with us as we toured. We are both professionals and my husband is a college professor. We were both very impressed. This was also a holiday day and Gloria got us through the streets before they closed.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind words. It's was such a pleasure to meet you. Hope you come back. Regards.

This was our second year using Gloria and we had two tours with her this year. We did the Sintra tour and the Lisbon city tour. Again, Gloria was a wonderful guide and hostess. She is a fount of knowledge and very flexible in whatever we wanted to do. Hopefully, we will get back to Lisbon soon and we will certainly book more tours with Gloria. Good luck with the new addition, Gloria.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I certainly hope to see you again next year :)

Gloria is wonderful. She arrived a little early, but we were ready. She drove us around the city and was very responsive to my senior citizen mother's fatigue and walking difficulties. She went above and beyond expectations when we discovered a problem, helping us to resolve it favorably.
Tim SantanaUnited States
Gloria was a super guide. She arrived on time and managed to cover all of our requested, even though there were quite a few places we wanted to see. She was very informative and flexible with the tour. If we return to Lisbon, we will certainly look for another tour with her.

Susan Citron-LymanUnited States
Gloria was a delight, charming and fun to be with plus a good sense of humor. With many funny Portugal stories. Well versed in English. She was so easy to be with and knew Lisbon's history in detail. She took us to wonderful hidden places for lunch and her suggestions of things to do after we left her were great. She was the fifth Tour By Local guides that we used during our vacation and was the BEST.We would recommend her to our friends in a minute. She helped to end our travels on a high note.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your words. I really had the feeling that I was travelling with my own family. It was so easy to be with you. I would recomend you to any guide :) In fact, not really! And that’s because I would like to make sure that on your next trip to Portugal I will be your guide again. It was a great pleasure to meet you!

We had an amazing day with Gloria who provided wonderful commentary on the sights of Lisbon along with a great sense of humour. She was very flexible to our needs as our day progressed and showed great energy and passion. Custard tarts and seafood lunch were highlights. Gloria has great English and we couldn't recommend her more highly.
