Even though she was guiding in the morning, she took me, wife and 7 year old for a very enjoyable excursion to Pena Palace in Sintra and onwards to the West coast and then... More

There were 4 of us visiting Lisbon for the first time, and we found Catia's tour(s) to be incredibly entertaining, informative and FUN! We learned so much about the city, the neighborhoods, the architecture, the history and the government that we wouldn't have learned in any tour book or standard tour. Catia incorporates useful information that brings a lot of... More

Frequent European travelers, we are acquainted with pvt. tours in many settings and locations. Our 2 days with Catia were enjoyable and informative. She not only is motivated to educate a client, but we enjoyed how she allows insight into the Portuguese personality and family life. She gave us a personal window to look into the customs and life of... More

Recently, we were in Portugal and only had four days to see the country. We have self toured most of our trips, but have taken a couple group tours (China/Egypt). At the recommendation of friends, who had been to Portugal, we contacted Catia Luis at Lisbon Stories for a private tour. Catia was great at responding to our needs for... More

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
