I was born and raised in Lisbon and I love my country and my job. You will easily sense that when you hear me speak about our culture, history, gastronomy and people. I am friendly and flexible and will do the possible for you to make the most of your trip!
What I offer
I have been providing guided tours in Portugal for the past five years in the mentioned languages, working with people from all over the world. Although I am based in Lisbon, where I live, I will gladly show you the gems of our culture, nature and history that are located beyond the capital, since my license is valid for the whole country and I am used to do long range tours.
I offer walking tours in Lisbon and in case you like hiking I can also guide you through nature reserves and parks.
Driven by a hired chauffer, I will also show you the places you are most interested in visiting: from the popular Sintra, Fátima or Óbidos to the hidden Dornes and Almendres, my tours can be adjusted to your motivations. Blending with locals is common during my tours, as well as tasting regional delicacies and listening to local music.
I also provide visits to museums and to local handicrafts makers. I love animals and will happily insert a visit to a local shelter or an activity of sustainable tourism related to animals upon request (e.g. dolphin watching in the Sado River, 50 minutes south of Lisbon by car).
For your comfort and safety most of my tours include the rental of a car and driver, therefore the tours will be made in a licensed van, with a professional driver - you will have a guide and a driver. All prices include transportation, except for the walking tours where normally no transportation is needed. Please check each of my tours for further information.

My Background, Licenses and certificates
I am a licensed, registered and insured Tour Guide since 2008, and my license number is 26.207.15/08.
Before and after getting my degree, I invested in travelling in order to improve my language skills and my knowledge about other countries and cultures. I lived in France where I worked for 3 months at the Wine Museum of Bordeaux and until now I travelled to the United States, Canada, Peru, Costa Rica, Cape Verde, South Africa, Iran, Laos, Cambodja, Vietnam, Brazil and several European countries.

Before being a full time Tour Guide, I worked with children, made handicrafts and worked as a supermarket promoter to pay for my Tourism studies.

In my free time I enjoy dancing, gardening, hiking and spending time with my friends and family.
