“Wonderful Tours with Carla”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2014

In March 2014, my husband, adult son and I were picked up by Carla in Porto and she then drove us to Lisbon with stops at Obidos and Coimbra. Carla was punctual, extremely knowledgeable and tailored our tour to our interests. We never could have seen as much on our own and felt really confident and relaxed in her good guidance. The following day we did a half day tour of Lisbon with her. Her ability to navigate her very comfortable large van through the narrow winding streets is impressive. She was able to answer all of our questions ranging from politics, the economy and the history in an objective and factual manner. We were all impressed with Carla's professionalism and knowledge and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a tour in Portugal.

“Wonderful Sintra Tour with Carla”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2014

Carla provided our family with a full day tour of Sintra and western coast sights (guide and transportation). We were a family of five; three generations including a 14 month old for whom Carla provided a car seat. We found Carla to be very warm and professional from our email correspondences before the tour to the actual day of the tour when she arrived at our apartment early and driving a newer Mercedes van. With her excellent command of English, her extensive knowledge of history and current events, and her flexibility during the day to tailor our tour based on our changing needs and interests, we were able to see and experience more than I had hoped. We had a wonderful day!

“Great way to get to know Portugal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2014

I arranged for two tours with Carla; one to the south, Setubal and surrounding areas, and one to Sintra. Carla was unavailable for the first tour to Setubal. She arranged for a colleague of her's, Carlos, to take us. He was absolutely fabulous. We visited castles, the national park, a tile maker, and a winery with an amazing art collection. It was a great sample of the area. Not to mention a great conversation with Carlos about Portugal's history. We then spent half a day wit Carla, who is an absolute delight. In spite of the terrible weather, we went in early January, we had a great time at the Pena Palace and seeing Sintra. I wish we would have been there at another time of year as the grounds look to be absolutely amazing. Two great trips; two great guides.

“Terrific guide”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2013

Our November visit to Portugal was the second time we have used Carla Carita for transportation or a guide. Since this was our third trip to Lisbon, we were wanting to see a bit more of Portugal, and Carla suggested a day trip south of Lisbon to visit some towns and a national park. As in our previous experience with her, Carla promptly answered emails and confirmed arrangements. We were on a ship, and Carla was waiting for us as we left the terminal. We got in her comfortable van and headed south of Lisbon, crossing the bridge across the Tagus River. She gave us interesting, appropriate commentary as we drove, and she could answer any and all questions we asked regarding the country, the language, the history, etc.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time with Carla. She stayed with us the entire day, translating as necessary and explaining the finer points of what we saw. We enjoyed seeing a centuries old tile company, Arrabida National Park, a castle, and two towns along the way. When we expressed a desire for Portuguese pastries, Carla took us to a wonderful place.

She is professional, trustworthy, informed, and delightful. Anyone visiting this part of the world (I think she also does tours in Spain) would make a wise decision to employ Carla as a guide.

“6 days tour in Portugal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2013

We developed with Carla our agenda for 6 days in Portugal in advance.
Carla provided us with a lot of useful tips and advices.
I had some concerns about very busy itinerary as every day we started at 9am returning to the hotel late at 6-7pm, but Carla was excellent organizer and guide.
We have been group of four and one person didn't speak English, Spanish only.
It was not a big deal for Carla to transfer from English into Spanish ( the rest of the group were bilingual).
We didnt feel any pressure and rush, all tours were perfectly organized. Carla was very flexible with any of our desires and agenda changes. Her partners in Porto did excellent job as well.
Thanks to Carla and Luis in Porto. We are in love with Portugal now.
