We booked a half day walking tour of Lisbon and a full day driving tour of Sintra. Pedro was such an excellent guide! He easily adapts himself to what you are interested in and what you want to see. He advised us to skip some of the more crowded areas of Sintra and consequently we had a very relaxed and interesting morning there, a real highlight. We ate lunch at a seafood restaurant overlooking the beach, and saw a good deal of the coastline on the way back. The walking tour of Lisbon was also great, hitting 4 major neighborhoods but somehow managing to keep a relaxed pace. Honestly I recommend these tours as a great value because you get personalized attention and it saves you so much time. Do not hesitate to book Pedro, he is a great guy and his expertise will make your days in beautiful Lisbon so much better!

Our group of 5 adults hired Pedro for the day to visit Obidos, Nazare and Sintra. We had a wonderful day! The van was comfortable for 5 of us. Pedro shared his extensive knowledge & provided an experience we could never have had on our own. It was a lot to do in one day, and Pedro knew the best way to route us to avoid the crowds as much as possible. He knew of a wonderful restaurant in Nazare where we enjoyed a delicious lunch of mussels, clams and shrimp. He provided a personal guided tour of Pena Palace that was full of interesting information and history. His English is perfect, and he was extremely flexible and accommodating! If we are fortunate enough to return to Lisbon, we will definitely ask to work with Pedro again! Thank you for a fabulous experience!

We totally enjoyed a lovely trip to Nazare, Obidos and Sintra with a few friends and Pedro as a guide. Pedro’s commentary and demeanor made this memorable and fun trip – we kept talking about how accommodating he was and how much fun he made the trip. The trip took longer than we originally planned (we were warned but decided to go for it anyway) and Pedro exhibited the patience of a saint, standing in long lines with us and putting up with our “let’s just try to go there” requests. His English is excellent, the vehicle is comfortable, and the pace of the trip was excellent. Very much recommended.

Our group of 6 adults booked a full-day tour of Lisbon with Cristina and we certainly were lucky to have her show us the city! She was professional, knowledgeable, but most of all she was genuine, warm and funny. The tour was thorough and she provided information that only a local would know. Even though there were city-wide restrictions due to COVID, she made sure that there was still plenty to see and do. Cristina let us set the pace of the tour and allowed stops for us to go into stores. She readily shared her knowledge of history and architecture of the city. Cristina was a great guide, and we will always remember our wonderful tour of Lisbon.

Cristina was the best guide we could have ever asked for in Lisboa. She thoroughly entertained us regarding the city's rich history and present day, covering architecture, politics, religions, social structures and more. The city's past came alive with Cristina's descriptions and story telling. She gracefully navigated us around the older city, being careful of my husband's knee problems. My husband and I and our 26-year-old daughter were sad to have the tour end. Thank you, Cristina!

My family (made up of 3 kids and  2 adults) and I enjoyed our walking tour with Cristina. She did an excellent job of introducing us to her hometown and guiding us through the Alfama, Baixa, Bairro Alto, and Chiado. She added much value to our time in Lisbon and gave us insights that only a local could provide. Cristina is excellent with kids and even conspired with them for more gelato. Every church that we visited bought the kids a scoop of ice cream. She was sure we poked our heads into as many churches as possible. We ate lots of ice cream! Happy kids = lots of ice cream!

If you really want to understand Portugal and enjoy Lisbon, just book private tour with Christina Duarte with your eyes closed. We had fantastic start of Portugal vacation, starting with Christina’s private tour. She was extremely flexible with our changing plans and communicated promptly all the way through. We were really immersed into Lisbon, its history and its culture for entire four hours. She speaks very good English, brings good sense of humor and back stories of Lisbon. By end of the tour you feel you have a new friend in Lisbon.

I contacted Lisbon & Beyond 2-3 months before our travel dates and we were assigned Pedro. Prior to our trip, I emailed a list of places of interest within the cities we wanted to explore. Being a Portuguese native from the archipelago who'd left Portugal as a child, I had very specific sites on the mainland that I wanted to see and show my family. We established the dates, meeting times, and length of tours prior to our arrival. When we met Pedro, I felt like he knew us already. We are a family of 5... my husband and I, and our 3 adult sons. Pedro is patient, flexible, knowledgeable, and easygoing. I say patient because we had lots of questions being history buffs and he was more than happy to engage in conversation and offer valuable and knowledgeable insight about Portuguese history. Pedro has a comfy car that accommodated us all, and he knew exactly where to take us for a memorable lunch during each of our tours. He also had great suggestions and recommendations for things to do on our own. Because my husband and I work jointly in our shared business, I appreciated that Pedro and his wife do also. They love their city and they're enthusiastic about sharing it with their clients. If you are looking for a knowledgeable and professional local guide with a polite easy going manner, look no further than Pedro!

Pedro and Cristina were our guides and did a phenomenal job of giving us a walking tour of both Lisbon and Sintra. They are highly knowledgeable local guides who know the city intimately and were also fun to spend the day with. Highly recommend.

I booked two half day tours with Pedro Lourenco, for Sintra and Lisbon. I was traveling with my 90 year old parents, who had limited mobility. This was an ideal way for them to see these cities and they enjoyed every minute. Pedro tailored the tour to their needs, including some very nice bathroom stops. We were able to get out and stroll a short ways in areas that were flat and easy to navigate with our wheelchair. Pedro speaks excellent English and was able to explain the sights and their history. He was fun to spend the morning with and very easy to be with. I’d highly recommend this company. My nephew (a young adult) joined us for our second tour and enjoyed it just as much as his grandparents did - so it's great for a wide range of ages.
