My story

My story in Lisbon began in 2017, not yet realizing that after a while I would buy a one-way ticket. It was January, despite this it was very warm, the sun was shining brightly, people that I've met were friendly, and I was inspired by the atmosphere of the city. For me, Lisbon has remained exactly the way I felt it for the first time. Here I started a new page of my life. I am happy that I have the opportunity to share with the guests exactly "My Lisbon".

What do I do here?

Everyone adapts to a new place of residence differently. My reality was relaxed and measured until I started showing the city to my friends with humor, love and positive. That was the moment when I realized, that I want to do it professionally. Now Lisbon has become my second home and I am showing it to my guests while studying the language and subtleties of Portuguese culture.

What's the best of my city?

Why do I like Lisbon? It is so different and so real. Despite of rich history, wonderful and unique architecture, beautiful landscapes and amazing viewpoints the city doesn't pretend to be perfect. My guests can see real life on the streets. The city is not always glamorous, but it's the place of happy people who are lucky enough to live in this cozy corner of Europe. You will never get bored in Lisbon. It's so many things to do and so many hidden corners with soul to discover and I will share the best ones with you.

My tours secret sauce

As a traveler, I know how it feels when you are in a new city, and everything looks amazing, and you don't want to miss something. My tours were created specifically to better understand the city and plan your trip in the best way. Coming here for the first time, a lot of my guests had practically no expectations from the city. I am very happy to be a guide to history and culture, to immerse in the magical atmosphere of the city and make them a little happier. Walking with me is always fun and interesting. So, as if we were old friends and you came to visit me. I will try to leave a wonderful aftertaste from your trip.
