I'm a tour manager and have used Catia to lead a couple of tours for me. On both occasions the preparation was excellent with all the details sorted out in advance by e-mail and by phone. Catia has her own transport (for small groups) and on one of my trips there was a train strike on the day we were to visit Sintra (by train) so at the last minute she was able to arrange to come to Lisbon to pick us up so the group did not miss out on their tour of Sintra. We were very grateful to her for that.
Catia's knowledge of the area is wonderful and she knows a lot of the places few tourists go to, as well as, of course, Sintra's more famous attractions (Pena Palace etc).
The tourists in my group loved her commentaries, which were both informative and fun. Not just about the tourist sites, but about life in Portugal which is equally as fascinating to visitors. She is very friendly and approachable.
It was a pleasure to introduce my groups to Catia and I will be using her in the future, and I can recommend her to anyone visiting the area.
