Paula T.

Oeiras, Lisbon, Portugal

Hello, I'm Paula! Having a Portuguese father, a French mother, a 5 years experience living in Italy, 2 full immersions courses in England, my environment is international.

I speak foreign languages and I'm in touch with foreign people since my childhood.
Consequently I took a first degree in International Relations and then a degree in Tourism Information specializing in Tour Guiding 16 years ago. Since then I've been working as a professional tourist guide always willing to learn more and to meet new people. My purpose has always been to be an ambassador of the Portuguese edified, cultural and natural heritage I'm so fond of.

To that I add my passion for wine, specially the Portuguese ones! I'm a certified sommelier, I organize wine & food tastings and sensory experiences. On each bottle there is a storytelling that I'm proud to share with guests. Drinking is quenching thirst, tasting wine is culture! You don't drink alcohol? Not a problem, there are plenty of delicacies to be tasted :-)

My tours are designed to be professional, customized, secure, easy, simple, fun. At the end guests feel happy, satisfied, enriched, taken care.

How about spending a wonderful time together visiting Lisbon and its region ?
