I drive a DELUXE MERCEDES Van. I give tours ALL AROUND Portugal. I do love guiding small, customized, family groups, up to 7 travellers.
My degree in tourism (4 years University + examination) allows me to lead historical tours, art, 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 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. I do love driving. Being a professional guide I do understand how important is to mingle with local culture for a more complete and more understanding local experience.
My registration with Turismo de POrtugal national tourism office is 420/2010, licensed to guide and drive tours simultaneously.
My previous job was in the hotel industry, so I have been always related with tourism activity.
Owner of 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. Since I do also drive, often arise limitations as to where and when to stop, so a separate driver will minimize this issue.
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 !
Hire a local who is also a professional tour guide allows an extraordinary experience !
A Recent Review of this guide
See Lisbon and learn all about Lisbon. Carla was an amazing guide and went above and beyond to tell us the history of this beautiful city and show us all around. Carla was incredibly knowledgeable about the history and sights around town. Carla was also incredibly thoughtful and accommodating during our tour. We traveled with our young children and our older mother and fathers-in-law. Thank you, Carla, for a memorable tour!!
