Catia deserves a huge "thank you" for making our Lisbon experience unforgettable. It isn't often that one gets to tour like a local but with Catia's help, I felt like we saw a piece of Lisbon and the surrounding areas as though we were just that. Catia picked us up in her comfortable van and brought us to some of... More

Four of us traveled together in October & November in Portugal. It was a very convenient arrangement for us to be picked up at the pier when we disembarked at the end of our Douro River cruise to tour the Porto region with Catia, Lisbon Stories. We had 4 nights booked in Porto and wanted a private guide who could... More

For almost all previous vacations, we have toured on our own, using guidebooks, concierge info, etc. During a recent visit to Lisbon, we decided to use a professional guide early in our stay to get the lay of the land for the remainder of our stay. Catia Luis owner of Lisbon Stories was recommended to us. Catia took us by... More

We met up with Catia in early November. There were 6 of us in Portugal. Catia met us at our ship and took us to our Hotel to drop off our luggage. She didn't have to do that and could have met us at the hotel. Thank you Catia! She is a patient and very personal tour guide. She loves... More

Catia Luis was a wonderful tour guide for the 2 days I was in Lisbon. She showed me all the local areas along with the sites of interest. I would highly recommend her to anyone visiting Lisbon and the surrounding areas. The restaurants she took me to were wonderful, ones that you would never find on your own. The trolley... More

We just returned from a two week trip that was capped by two memorable days with Catia. Not only is Catia a wonderful and knowledgeable guide, she is happy to share her personal stories. Our visit to Sintra and drive up the coast via Estoril and Cascais was beautiful. Lunch in a real 'local' restaurant was fantastic. Our day is... More

I took my first trip to Portugal in November, so knew little of Lisbon. On a friend's recommendation, we hired Catia for a local's view of the city and the surrounding area. I'm so glad we did! Catia is extremely knowledgeable and professional. The greatest highlight was the trip to the coast, the countryside and Sintra. Catia picked us up... More

At the last minute we decided we should find a guide to help us make the most of our time in Lisbon. This was only a few days before our departure so I was a bit concerned about who I might find. I discovered Lisbon Stories after a brief Google search and saw her reviews so decided to give Catia... More

Whenever possible when traveling to new places, we try to find knowledgeable local guides. Catia with Lisbon Stories was not only knowledgeable but entertaining as well. We were very happy with her personal attention, willingness to share the colorful Portugal history and all of those local gems that make a guide so valuable to have when visiting new parts of...
