Lisbon Destination Expert Ana Marques runs and edits a website in Lisbon that discovers and interviews talented Portuguese people. We’ll let her tell you a bit about herself:
“You could say I’ve travelled! I’ve been lucky enough to have seen New York, Miami, Florianopolis, São Paulo, Malé, Doha, Santorini, Rome, Florence, Venice, Capri, Berlin, much of the south and north of Spain, London, Paris, Bordeaux, Bratislava, Vienna, Turkey, Mexico and some Caribbean islands…! I even lived for a time in Brussels and São Paulo. In all of those places the things I liked the most were the contact with the people and their culture. I like observing, capturing moments…
All those places really opened my horizons, but I’m always drawn back home to Lisbon. It really has something special. It’s a city that has so much to offer. History hides behind each corner here.
The weather is great, and you have the advantages of the city with the fun of the beach. Everything is really not far away.
I’m really happy to be able to tell you about my home town of Lisbon when you’re preparing your trip. I really look forward to helping you feel at home and comfortable, like you belong here.
I still have Panama, Colombia and Australia (and more) left on my list of places to visit. I really hope that Lisbon is on yours. You’ll just LOVE it!”
Ana speaks Portuguese, English, and a bit of French!
“We flew like birds in Madrid with the teleferico across the casa del campo, gliding just above the houses and trees. Wonderful day!”

“My husband and I spent a week in Cape Town last march. Amber was my contact at Cmycities and I must say she was great helping us make our stay the most enjoyable possible! Amber is easy to get in touch with and is extremely reactive. She gave us tailor-made advices, as I had been in Cape Town only once, years ago (loved Green Market Square and the Truth Coffee).
I particularly appreciated her good tips (we were looking for running spots and found great ones at the Sea Point Waterfront) and addresses that no guide tour would have given me (girl-to-girl best spots like shopping in the Watershed) but also lots of groovy attractions for the two of us. “

“I had a wonderful last minute week-end in London two months ago… Cmycities London helped me find a hotel, select a musical and recommended the Saatchi Gallery, which was really for me an amazing experience. I can only recommend Marie-Pascale, for the personal touch I am always looking for when I travel… and I can’t wait to travel again with Cmycities! “

“We had the most incredible experience in Paris a few weeks ago! The trip was a surprise long weekend for our 5 year-old daughter birthday and it was just perfect! Her eyes are still sparkling, maybe from seeing the Eiffel Tower?! We managed to keep a day out at Disneyland as a surprise. It’s a family trip we’ll never forget! “

“I only had a short stay in Sao Paulo but I was lucky to have Andre to show me around and point me in the right direction. He knows all the good spots and fun areas, and you can definitely tell how much he loves his city! I can’t wait to go back and explore more of this incredible city!
I highly recommend getting in touch with him before your stay!
Thanks again Andre :)”
