Hi, I’m Luis


Hi, I’m Luis

I’ve lived in Lisbon for 41 years

I speak English, Spanish, Portuguese and some French

I am a Tour guide


My name is Luís, but most people know me by my family name Pena. I always wanted to work in the tourism industry, I never had many difficulties in choosing what I wanted to do professionally, my curiosity for traveling and getting to know new cultures in the world was always evident. My life in tourism has already taken me to travel and get to know different realities, I started by going to the Highlands, where I worked in the various departments of Marriot Dalmahoy in Edinburgh, I also had the possibility to check out the madness of the Balearic Islands as a hotel animator for some seasons . But it was my country that I fell in love with, its history, traditions, gastronomy. So I entered this crazy world of accompanying groups as a guide-interpreter, I was always told, you have such a funny profession and the classic "you always travel" was something I got used to, but being a guide is much more than accompanying group; it is to interpret, it is enthusiastic, it is treating, it is talking, it is supporting, it is helping, it is being the main link between all services and the customer from the beginning to the end of the tour / circuit. I think the main feature on my tours is the enthusiasm. I am a local guide in the city of Lisbon, but I know Portugal and islands well and for this reason, if you need a guide and want to get to know Portugal in a more exciting, curious and historical way. Do not miss this opportunity, contact me and see what I have to offer for the national market.
