21 Jul 2017 Withlocals is the way to visit Lisbon, Portugal
For our next trip, we decided to go to Lisbon, Portugal. When we arrived in Lisbon, Portugal’s capital, we wanted to see the beautiful seaside and the surrounding areas like the locals do. But I didn’t know how. Luckily, we met a fellow traveler at our hotel and they turned us on to Withlocals. After our day out with our amazing guide, we couldn’t have asked for a better excursion.
During our day with Sofia, we discovered that Withlocals goal,to connect people and cultures through travel, is exactly what we wanted in our day trip. By connecting travelers with a local guide, each traveler can find exactly the right experience. All the guides are local experts and know the unique gems of their home town. They’re not guides that lead tours on multiple days and only know the main attractions of a destination. She told us that the guides are passionate about connecting travelers who want to feel the real vibe of a destination, not just a general group tour. I also learned that if we wanted to, we could have completely personalized our trip and since Sofia knew Sintra inside and out, she could have accommodated our wish.
