Marta C.

Lisbon, Portugal

I was born in Lisbon and I'm a Lisbon lover and above all I love my job and my beautiful country!

I've travelled much around the world during my 16 year (Wow, already?!? I'm getting old!) experience on tour guiding and tour managing but since my first child was born I decided to stop being so nomadic and right now I'm 100% dedicated to my lovely Lisbon and to my beloved large family! Like this I can have the best of both worlds: during the day I meet fantastic people from all over the world, guide them through the most interesting places and take them to my favourite spots. . . ! Then, when I finish, I get back home to be spoiled by my boys :) Couldn't get any better!

I have a 5 year Degree on Tourism called Touristic Information, specifically to work as a Tourist Guide, as well as the Certificate of Competence acquired through a qualifying examination, in order to be able to exercise this regulated profession.
Tour guiding has been my full time job since 2003 and I just love it!

Waking up everyday knowing I'll meet enthusiastic people who are excited to discover my city makes me a very grateful and happy person. Sunny people bring out the best of me :) I wouldn't know how my life would have turned out to be if I wasn't a tourist guide. . . !

My wish is to make you feel all the unique details of this fairytale country the way I proudly do, welcoming you as a friend, however always assuring professional, original and interesting tours.

You can choose from my many tours the one you're more into or we can build together a tailored experience, everything at your own pace. Once you send me a message, I'll always try to answer right away and if I'm delivering a tour or busy with my family, I'll let you know and then I'll get back to you as soon as possible.

I can guide you through a walking tour or if you prefer to just sit and relax a little bit more, I also provide tours with transportation included (private minivan, minibus, bus).

I'll be happy to create a costumized tour just for you and if you have special requests or if you are more than 4 or even if you're bringing along your family with different age ranges. . . let me know so we can go through rates and programmes together.

Some of my tours can perfectly be combined, actually that's why I designed a few like I did, already thinking about offering you that possibility :) It's a matter of deciding how can we build the best option.
No waiting in line when you tour with a licensed guide. I can even pre-book your tickets for monuments, when necessary.

There are lots of magic and unique places in Portugal where I can take you on a tour! Let me know about you, your interests and ideas. . . and according to that I will work on your time in Lisbon, making it memorable!

Portugal is a country where you can come all year, the weather is wonderful and even during the winter you can enjoy the simple pleasures of life such as sitting on an esplanade, absorving each sunbeam. . . ! It's a hidden paradise still. . . don't tell anyone I've given that super secret away :)
Plus. . . Portuguese food is simply delicious and the wine is just perfect for a toast to celebrate the beauty of life!

Can't wait to meet you!!! :)

A Recent Review of this guide

Marta was ready and waiting with smiles when I signed into our online tour a few minutes early. She had prepared a short one hour overview of Lisbon, Portugal, with a short power point presentation. She provided historical facts, showed photos of the most important places, and provided us with a brief vocabulary lesson at the end. Would have liked a clearer internet connection.
