Carla C.

Carcavelos, Portugal

Dear Portugal visitor! I am Carla, Lisbon native, private tour guide.

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 !

A Recent Review of this guide

Our group of three couples had Carla as a tour guide and driver from April 16- April 25,2018 a tour of Lisbon environs, The Duoro Valley, Porto and intermediate stops. We had an excellent experience with Carla. She was a pleasure to work with and have as a companion. She was knowledgeable and interesting as a guide.She was open to our needs and made good suggestions and adjustments as necessary. We would rate her 5 out of 5 for her professionalism, her expertise and her reliability.
