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...

Catia Luis of Lisbon Stories was a gracious, generous and entirely pleasant host as she took the four of us on a private tour of Lisbon, Cascais and Sintra. She was very knowledgable about her home city, but never pedantic and boring, and she navigated the streets and byways of Lisbon and beyond with ease and expertise. We ended the... More

I have done one of the cooking programs. It was awesome! A great Chef, very relaxed and easygoing, but really experienced on what she was doing. Amelia guided us through all the cooking process, explaining step by step what we should do. In the meantime we could also sit and relax in the wonderful Pateo, having a glass of a... More

Two years ago, we hired Catia for a 4 day tour of Porto and Douro Valley. We had such an amazing time that on our return to Lisbon this year, we chose to tour with her again. This time, we journeyed to the Alentejo for a day of sightseeing and shopping. After passing through Evora, we stopped at a local... More

Khattia speaks excellent English and has very pleasant manner. She organised 5 days in Lisbon and surrounds for my group of 10. Her advice was sound, the restaurants she recommended and booked were very good. We had absolutely nothing to complain about and I would recommend her to anyone wishing to se Lisbon and surrounding attractions
