My name is Rute Mendes and I am a qualified tour guide since 1992. I completed my training at the “Instituto Novas Profissões” in Lisbon in 1992 and I am officially registered under the number 01/114. For 11 years I have been guiding groups in English, German, and Italian all over Portugal but since 2003 I do sightseeing tours in Lisbon and its surroundings like Sintra, the Estoril Coast, Mafra and Arrábida mountain. In the last two years, I am specialized in gardens, and native and exotic plants in Portugal.
I guide groups or families through historic districts in Lisbon, and visit palaces, churches, museums, and other tourist attractions. I offer a variety of tours with different themes according to your specific needs.
