About Lisbon Stories

      Lisbon stories is the personal project of a Licensed tourist guide, Catia. 
    Working as a free lancer local guide for the biggest travel agencies, in 2009 I found myself with a reduced number of bookings. Instead of singing some Fado about my life, I decided to launch my own project. 
     I've always felt sorry for my clients sitting in big bus tours and though that private, customizable tours were the way to go. Everyone should be able to enjoy Lisbon from a unique, personal perspective. Everyone should be able to feel they belong to the city... and that's how Lisbon Stories was born.
      Today me and my team deliver private tours in comfortable cars, giving each client the opportunity to discover an unique city and country, full of memorabble experiences.
     All the tours were created specially for this website, thinking about your interests and quality of time during your holidays. They're all customizable and if you want something different, you're more than welcome to explain your ideas.   
     In short, Lisbon stories is a project to make you feel like you belong to the city, ensure high quality private tours; no crowds, whispers or flags; just you and those you like. Lisbon stories, belong to the city!


About Catia,


I was born and raised in Sintra and I've always enjoyed meeting new people. 

I took a degree in Tourism Information and a spcialization in Sustainable Tourism but I must say that I acquired my biggest education during some experiences working abroad, in hospitality, as well as some time travelling on my own.

In 2007 I became a Licensed Guide and started working as a free-lancer for the biggest and most known travel agents and tour operators. 

In 2009 life gave me some lemons and I decided to reply not with lemonade, but with Lisbon Stories!

I'm fluent in Portuguese, English, Italian, Spanish and French and I'm entitled to give tours in the whole country. 

I'm the manager of Lisbon Stories but I must admitt that my passion is showing Portugal to visitors from all over the world. 

Come, you won't regret!
