Guides are the cornerstone of any tour. They can ‘make or break’ a visit to any city. We are so excited about the quality of guides that work for Discover Walks.
Raised in a mix of Lisbon life and Portuguese countryside, Catarina became a fusion of both: an urban dancer and a biologist. It’s very common to see her looking up and down at every little detail of the city and for any animal or plant, as she goes around every neighborhood of Lisbon.
It’s also very easy to spot her, since recently her hair turned very mermaid-like. As a history lover and a proclaimed geek, she always has an interesting fact to tell to whoever listens, and so, being a guide, she gets to share some knowledge and her deep love for Lisbon and its urban, artistic and natural wonders.
Catarina has always travelled a lot, seen 3 different continents, and danced in Europe and India, but it’s true that there is no place quite like Lisbon. This is the magic she hopes to transmit to its every visitor.
Fahim always had an admiration for cities, no wonder he’s in the urban planning field. That’s why sometimes he might look like a crazy person just observing everything with admiration when roaming around cities.
He’s got a background from three continents! That’s why he loves travelling as he looks at the world as one big country, and Lisbon as home sweet home.
Get to know the funny secrets of how this city of sunshine and water life is what it is today… and please, interrupt him. Sometimes he talks a lot!
