Based on excellent reviews, my wife and I booked a day with Catia to visit Evora and a cork factory and we had a great time! She not only gave us a great walking tour of Evora, but she tailored it slightly when she learned I used to teach, showing us the University. After a wonderful lunch at a small... More

At the very last minute, I decided to look for a private tour experience for one day in Lisbon. After looking through the reviews, I contacted several companies and Catia was the first to respond. We had very efficient and clear communication via email. She even offered to pick me up at the airport! I had no agenda, so Catia... More

We were planning our own agenda in and around Lisbon, and had not thought about hiring a guide, until a friend of mine heard we were going to Lisbon and recommended Catia. No regrets! We had her as our private guide for a day and got to sites we would otherwise have not known about or been able to reach... More

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
