A great Lisbon Airport Transportation recommendation

I just got back from the 12 Day Rick Steves Tour of Portugal which was fantastic. I arrived in Lisbon two days early and was worried after reading about the warnings of taxi drivers ripping of tourists arriving at the airport, and wasn't sure after a long overnight flight to deal with the airport bus.

I found a great private taxi driver which wasn't much more then the estimate for a regular taxi. She had great reviews on trip advisor, so I contacted her (and had contacted other companies which were more money) She was fantastic, and even said if I needed anything before the tour to call her. It was like being picked up by a friend at the airport

Her name is Margarida Neves and her facebook and twitter pages are below.

We just returned from Lisbon, staying near the Castle, and the fare coming and returning to the airport was the meter price-€13!
Also, a taxi from the Monestary to the Metro station across from the market was meter price of €5. Had no hassles at all.

In every city in Portugal (including Lisboa) when we took a taxi, the meter was always set. €3.25 upon entry and 80¢/bag.
Never ripped off.
We found the taxi drivers to be competent and amiable.

Our final ride was from the Bairro Alto to the Aeroporto for €13. I considered that to be very reasonable.
