My previous job was in the hotel industry, so I have been always related with tourism activity.

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.

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.
