Carla C.

Carcavelos, Portugal

I'm Carla, Lisbon native, private tour guide. As Official Tour Guide providing tours since 2001, driving my own VAN, a confortable, DELUXE MERCEDES Viano, in Lisbon area and all Portugal.

I specialized in small, customized, family groups, up to 7 travellers.

My education allows historical tours, arts, food tours, wine trips, arts and crafts, local traditions, pilgrim trips, gardens and parks of Portugal, architecture, roman sites and archeology. I am curious and love to learning 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 a professional guide I do understand how important is to mingle with the local culture for a better understanding and a more complete experience.

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 required I may have a separate driver who will 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 tailored tour just for you. The suggested multiday tours are customized. The presented ones are starting points for a full experience of Portugal as it is, genuine and authentic , shown by a local and experienced guide and driver.

Benvindos to this fascinating country with friendly people that you will love as much as I do !
Be a local with a professional tour guide is an utmost experience !
