Name a place or an interest and Lisbon Stories will turn that into a private tour. 100% customizable, always led by a licensed guide who also drives, Lisbon Stories tours are the best option for those who want to take the maximum out of their (short) time in Lisbon!

I contacted Catia on a very short notice right before we left for our Portugal vacation. She responded right away. Unfortunately for us, Catia was booked solid for the duration of our stay. However, she found and connected us with another tour guide, who did a wonderful job introducing us to Lisbon, Sintra and Cascais. Catia really went an extra mile to help us out. We had a great experience with the guide she recommended! We loved our Lisbon vacation! Can't wait to come back and meet Catia in person!

Catia took us on a tour of Sistra and the Pena Palace. It was a wonderful experience and we enjoyed her first hand knowledge of the history and people who shaped and influenced Portugal. What started out as a five hour tour turned into eight hours as she took the time to ensure that we saw all of the sights in the comfort of her clean and comfortable van. If you're planning a trip to Lisbon, be sure to include a tour with Catia. You won't be disappointed.

We asked Catia to do a special 5 hr tour to Fatima with an early start. She picked us up promptly at our hotel and accomplished our Fatima tour in an outstanding manner. Then she was kind enough to add on several hours so we could see the city of Lisbon prior to boarding our cruise ship.
She is prompt, professional and flexible. She is very knowledgeable, articulate and her perfect English is easy to understand. On top of all that, she is charming, humerous and lots of fun to spend time with.

It's always a pleasure to hear that your tour went exactly as you expected it to be and that you have wonderful memories of Lisbon. I guess that you already know where to come on your next vacation! ;)
Best regards, Catia

We wanted a concise tour of Lisbon and having done the 'hop on, hop off' thing before, we wanted to know what someone from Portugal would deem the most significant places in Lisbon to see.
Catia was our answer. She took us in her car and told us all the stories about Lisbon including the history, the food, the myths, the architecture, the people, etc. We stopped at the places she thought Lisbon was all about.
It was great and she was very patient with us as our disabled son was with us and slowed things down a lot.

Our group of four enjoyed a great day with Catia touring around Lisbon and Sintra. Communication before the trip was fast and thorough. She picked us up at our hotel on time in her comfortable minivan and dropped us off at the port for our cruise. We trusted her to pick an itinerary and she did not disappoint. Catia is knowledgeable, energetic, accommodating, personable and professional. Looking back on our two week trip, our day with her was definitely one of the highlights. Our next trip to Portugal will certainly include another day with Lisbon Stories.
Trust our review along with all the other glowing reviews and book a day with this great guide!
