We had a wonderful tour with Catarina - she was very knowledgable, accommodating and friendly. Our small group felt like old friends, we could ask many questions and Catarina knew so much about the history and modern day Lisbon, it was a perfect amount of walking, standing, riding a tram and learning about variety of subjects.
Thank you!!!
