Dick V.

Lisbon, Portugal

Hello, my name is Dick and I have more than 5 years of experience as a storyteller and private tour guide with my own project and other companies in Lisbon.

I did not plan to be a tour guide, it developed naturally when I was working on a project about life and philosophy and I showed the visitors the city. The people were very appreciative of the tours and afterward, I was not only invited by other companies, but I also started my own project because I personally enjoyed walking around town with people.

I was born in the Netherlands, traveled to a lot of countries and choose to live in Lisbon because I think this is one of the most beautiful and friendly cities in Europe. That's why I stay here already 15 years, still enjoying the unique way of living in one of the oldest cities and countries of Europe situated at the most western point of the mainland of Europe.

I like to share my love and understanding for Lisbon with you in a way that I do with my family and friends. My tours are never the same, I feel the people and what they like. When you are traveling and visiting a city, you like to have a nice time, and in the meanwhile learn to know the city and her inhabitants.

My tours are like art and will give you an experience you will never forget!

I welcome you to a trip with this happy flying Dutchman. Enjoy!

For the tours that I offer I do not have any restrictions in regard to my guiding, I can offer a full range of experiences, since they are walking tours only.
