About the tour

Blessed by a mild climate, a safe harbor and amazing seafood, Cascais is located west of the capital of Portugal, Lisbon. Even if inhabited in since Roman times, it is nowadays known for having been a summer destination for our kings in the late 19th century, and place of refuge during the II World War. During our walk we will be able to see the coast, the houses built by the elites in the past 150 years, the fishing harbor and the cobbled streets of the town. Join me on this beautiful and relaxing walk, filled with both history and tips on how to use your time here when you visit our beautiful country.


Meet your local guide

Inês

Inês has been a licensed guide in Portugal since 2008. Her mother was a French and Portuguese teacher who fell in love with a Peruvian musician and craftsman in Paris. She considers herself a storyteller with a wide range of interests, from history to gastronomy, growing food in her small garden, hiking in the company of her wonderful dog and dancing. She is currently taking a massage course and learning how to sew! All in all, this means that Inês loves to explore different layers and perspectives of Lisbon, its culture and to share it with others!

Inês has been guiding since Aug 2008

What a wonderful trip with a wonderful tour guide. Thank you Ines. My family is from Cascais and we've been back many times over the years. It was nice to learn the history of the area. It was so nice of you to mention my grandpa who built the top floor of hotel Baia. It's so amazing to be on a live tour and have the interaction with your guide. I can't wait to return.
