Thank's for your kind words. It was great to share Portugal with you. I had so much fun. Hope this will be the first of many other visits. Obrigada

Graca Amaral gave us a wonderful guided tour of Sintra, Cascais and Roca Cape yesterday. She was very thorough and informative and fun to be with and helped us get some great photos. Thanks, Graca for a memorable day!
We booked this tour from a contact in our Rick Steves Portugal tourist guide, where Cristina was offered as an recommended guide. We arranged the tour via e-mails, and we were not disappointed.Cristina was entirely professional, fluent in French to accommodate our Quebec friends, and...More
We highly recommend Lisbon4smile.
Graca first introduced us to Lisbon and we fell in love with the city wich we now have visited four times. We have been on several guided tours with her: Day trips to Sintra, Cascais and Setubal were fantastic experiences.
The traditionally trendy "Chiado" (literally, "squeak", the nickname of a 16th century poet) offers plenty of cafes, restaurants and bars where you can stop for a cafe or cocktail, after exploring its streets, shops, art galleries, theaters, museums and viewpoints. It's also the home to the statue of the famous statue of portuguese poet Fernando Pessoa, having is usual espresso at "A Brasileira" as he used
to. You can also enjoy breathtaking views of Lisbon from the Elevador de Santa Justa or the Carmo Convent, for example. A commercial neighborhood at its core, especially for its Garrett and Carmo streets, Chiado is to this day a mandatory visit in Lisbon.
