As Official Tour Guide providing tours since 2001, driving my own VAN, an extremely confortable, DELUXE MERCEDES Viano, covering all Portugal, and beyond. I specialized in small, custom or family groups.
My education cover various areas: history, arts, gastronomy, wines, ethnology, crafts, local traditions, religion, botany, wild life, architecture, archaelogy. I am curious and love to learn with my travellers.
Flexible, trustful and passionate about my people and culture, Portugal. I am a discreet person, who assures a safe and confortable driving.
Being registered by the official portuguese tourism office with the number 420/2010 I am licensed to guide and drive tours simultaneously.
My previous job was in the hotel industry, so I have been always related with tourism activity.
I do own a deluxe Van, Mercedes Viano Ambiente, 7+1 individual leather seats, fully air-conditioned, large luggage capacity for round trips.
Whenever needed and when he is available, I may have a separate driver, my husband Carlos who did the tourism driver course and also a former soldier, to assist during the tours.
Below I do present a sample of tours around Lisbon but feel free to let me know your interests and I'll prepare a customized tour just for you.
Benvindos to this fascinating country with friendly people that will make you return !

Carla, thanks guiding us professionally in and around splendid Lisboa. Most pleasant after the city exploration, was the tour in the big environment of Lisboa, with Cascais, Cabo Da Roca and Sintra. A 5 star tour indeed!
