Thank you so much Matilde for introducing us to Lisbon. You were very articulate and knowledgeable about Portuguese history and culture. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our half-day with you, and we felt an immediate connection. The time went so quickly, and we could have spent many more hours exploring the city with you and not become tired. We so appreciate all of your suggestions for our next couple of days in the Lisbon area.
Matilde is a very competent, friendly and helpful guide! We enjoyed the tour tremendously, each and every question we had was answered sufficiently. Matilde reacted always according to our needs and preferences! Highly recommended!

Lisbo was absolutely beautiful, Jim and I arrived to the tour feeling as if we knew some things about your city but after our tour with you all we can say is thank you from the bottom of our hearts; for allowing Jim and I to see its deep history through your eyes and it beauty through your heart.

Matilde was great. She is very knowledgeable and charming. She loves Lisbon and you can tell. We learned more in 3.5 hours with her than 2days.
We would like to thank Matilde for the great tour visiting Lisbon by foot. She was very kind and prepared and gave us great tips and indications. Very good Italian and English. Rate 5/5 We will recommend her.

Chris O.United States
Matilde was an excellent guide. Not only a true professional, but also interesting and enjoyable to be with. She was great with the kids, asking them questions and involving them. She was very knowledgeable about all the sites. She was also very organized, as she planned one walk up to the Castle and then smartly down and around pretty much the rest of the way. That is a trick if you know how hilly Lisbon is. She was extraordinarily helpful, and left us at a very good restaurant.

Excellent tour two referrals to Matilda for friends travelling in august
Charles WaskiewiczUnited States
In short, Matilde is awesome. My wife and I have taken numerous private tours throughout Europe, and Matilde is in the top of the class. She is personable, knowledgeable, and attentive and focused to what interests the client. She then tailors the tour accordingly. I would highly recommend her.
It was an excellent tour and that the guide was both personable and very knowledgeable.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Geoff! Thank you so much for your feedback, it means a lot! Have fun Matilde
Karen ThissenUnited States
Mathilde was a superb tour guide - she knew her history and culture and had answers to all of our questions, and also showed us lots of special places we would never have found on our own. She added great recommendations for the rest of our trip as well. She was professional but very warm and tailored the tour to our preferences. Very happy we found her!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Karen and Em ! Have a blast!
When visiting a new city I always book a walking tour of the old town with a private guide at the beginning of my stay. In Lisbon I was fortunate to have Matilda M. as my guide. A private tour is really about going for a walk and having a conversation with someone you would consider new and instant friend. Although I had the most to learn, we learned from each other. Matilda is an absolute master at engaging a client's willingness and desire to learn about her city of Lisbon.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Cal : traveling is, more than ever, exchanging and sharing ideas! What a pleasure to have met you! Best of luck Matilde
Jan RyallUnited Kingdom
Matilde was an excellent guide. She showed us the city at our pace, showing us major landmarks and 'hidden gems'. She also helped us plan the rest of our stay in Lisbon and ensured that we understood the public transport system, restaurants, and local customs. Her English is excellent and she has a lively sense of humour. Altogether an excellent guide and a very nice lady.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Jan! Thank you so much for your feedback. I hope you had a great time in Lisbon! Hugs

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Robert!! It was a pleasure to introduce you to my city! Have a great trip. Matilde
We met up with Matilde on our first day in Lisbon... we would recommend that you plan your Lisbon trip this way. We spent about 5 hours with Matilde, learning all about the history and culture of Portugal/Lisbon. Matilde is incredibly knowledgeable and made for an outstanding guide. She toured us around (on foot) showcasing interesting insights about the castles, churches, squares and all of the history. You will have the BEST orientation with Matilde. She gave us an incredible introduction to Lisbon
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Neal! Thank you for such kind words! Great great pleasure to have been with you! Hugs Matilde
Vernon GiangUnited States
Matilde was a wonderful guide. She created a customized tour of Lisbon that included plenty of local history, drinks, and small bites. She has a wide breadth of knowledge over many topics that she delivers in flawless English. She could easily pass for a native English speaker. The amount of walking was perfect for our physical level. We would highly recommend Matilde.
