Private tour guide Filipe

Filipe S.

Lisbon, Portugal

Olá! My name is Filipe. I'm a proud "Lisboner", born and raised in the beautiful capital city of Portugal.

It's now more than 15 years since I started working as a licensed tour guide and I believe that the passion and love for my job have been growing steadily ever since. As someone said, "choose a job you love, and you won't have to work a single day in your life".

I'm passionate about traveling, photography and Music. I love History, geography and Art. . . and I love sharing my knowledge. For this reason, I feel immensely fortunate in being a tour guide in this place. I believe that my country has one of the most pleasant lifestyles in the world, with a rich gastronomy and generally blessed by a mild climate. Lisbon is, undoubtedly, among the most fascinating capital cities in Europe. The city and its surroundings are full of Art and Culture, reflecting the richness of the country's Historical background. And because the variety of its landscapes, it is still capable of constantly surprising even its own residents. This is why I've always enjoyed touring the country with family and friends, using my personal time. I'm looking forward to showing you the best of what there is to see! By having personal and customized tours, It gets easier to know its well-kept secrets and get more into the locals way of living.

Speaking 3 foreign languages (besides Portuguese) has given me the chance of working with people coming from the 4 corners of the world. The contact with different people has surely enriched my guiding experience, for I know that we all have different perspectives over life and different expectations when visiting a foreign place. Because I know that flexibility is important, on my tours I offer personal, customized service that can surely meet everyone's needs. Whether this is the first, or the tenth time that you're here, the visiting possibilities are immense, and I can adapt the visit to your wishes. This is your tour!

For some city tours, the best way of getting around is walking and using public means of transportation (including trams and funiculars). For other tours, I provide transportation, by using my own vehicle, a comfortable Volkswagen Sharan.

I'm looking forward to welcoming you in Lisbon!

A Recent Review of this guide

We have used private guides several times, but this tour of Lisbon was by far the best. Filipe was knowledgeable about local flora and fauna, Portugal's history, politics, and economics, local roads and sights. He customized a tour that fit us perfectly. Plus he's a very nice guy! I would recommend this company to others, and will definitely check for their presence in any future port of call.
