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...

Lisbon was the last stop on a cruise to the Canary Islands, the Azorres and Madeira. I did a lot of research and saw that Lisbon had so much to offer the only way to see it was with a private guide. Catia came highly recommended and the e-mails we exchanged confirmed that she could deliver what I wanted. And... More

Catia did a great job with our group of 4 for our two days in Lisbon. I am a history buff and she is well educated and enthralled me with all of her knowledge. She paid attention to our specific needs, recommending restaurants to locals eat at and making sure we tried local specialities. It was wonderful to be picked... More

I don't know what happened: we looked at many reviews - all positive, read Catia's blog - very interesting, exchanged a few e-mails - all written in a professional manner. All seemed to suggest a great, very informative time with Catia Luis during our visit in Lisbon. We booked a 4-hour tour on Sunday morning since out flight arrived early... More

LisbonStories, Owner at Lisbon Stories - Private Tours, responded to this review

I’m deeply sorry to hear you were disappointed with your tour. I normally don’t do tours on Sunday, nor do I recommend trying to see the city in 4 hours, especially when you have a full day to see Lisbon. Please know that your trip was planned well in advance, but there are some situations that are completely out of... More

My husband and I ended our vacation touring Spain and Portugal with Catia Luis of Lisbon Stories. We have not stopped telling everyone how wonderful it was to visit both Lisbon and Sintra with Catia. Her knowledge is extensive, but she was able to tell us so much information in both an informative and fun style. Lisbon is both historic... More

Catia's tour was just excellent! I would really like to recommend Catia to people, who like to get both: an overview of the area and same time background knowledge in a short, compact but relaxed way. Catia is attentive to realize her visitors' interests, able to answer very detailled historic questions if requested - on the other hand accepts of... More

We had a great tour with Catia of the Old City of Lisbon - she was knowledgeable, bubbly & friendly and made us feel like we were family- she did not only tell us about the history of the city, but also told us anecdotes and showed us hidden places that we would have never found without her. I can... More

My 20 something daughters & I visited Lisbon in April & had the pleasure of having Cátia Luis, the owner of Lisbon Stories, as our personal guide. We spent the day together in and around Lisbon, Sintra & Cascais. Cátia was very knowledgeable and tailored our day around what we wanted to see. She provided comfortable transportation and is a...
