Whenever my wife and I travel in Europe we usually hire a local guide for the cities we visit for the first time. Over the years we've had very good success with the guides listed in Rick Steves' guidebooks. This was definitely the case this May when we were in Lisbon and hired Cristina Duarte for the morning of 25 May. We've not met a more delightful guide than Cristina in all our travels. She was articulate, insightful, knowledgeable and accommodating. As first time visitors, we wanted a comprehensive overview of the city and to become acquainted with the essential Lisbon; this is exactly what Cristina gave us. In fact, she gave us such an excellent tour that we vowed to return to Lisbon in the near future to get to know it better; of course, we'll use the services of Cristina at that time. We unreservedly recommend Cristina Duarte.
