The idea of creating Little Lisbon was born within a local family, while visiting a new city with kids. We wish to disclosure the enormous cultural offer of Lisbon and share it with families visiting the city with children.
We are strongly motivated to share more about Portuguese culture - our history, our heritage, our traditions and artistic expressions. Our goal is to disseminate and promote the immense cultural activities the city has to offer. We seek for the strengthening of family ties, through family experiences that will create many positive memories to be shared. Welcome!
Meet our team!
Little Lisbon has sought to integrate into its team members whose training and professional experience are complementary to the development of our programs, especially in the educational, cultural and artistic areas. Plus, we are experienced mums & docents, looking forward to meet your family and welcome you to Lisbon in a child-friendly & fun way!
Mariana Sargo (founder, ceo & guide)
Hello! I am Mariana, born and raised in Lisbon and now mother of a gradeschooler boy and a preschooler girl who, like me, both love Lisbon and Portuguese history. I've graduated in Landscape Architecture and later in Tourism (tourist information and entertainment), both combined leading me to do what I enjoy the most: walking around the city and showing it to our visitors!
Maria K. Mestre (co-founder & guide)
Hi, I am Maria! I was born and raised in Germany, where I graduated with a degree in Art History and Languages. In 2006 I moved to Lisbon and am almost a local by now. I am married to a Portuguese and we have a little daughter who was born in 2014. When I first came to Lisbon I fell in love with the city and the people and I have now been working as a tour guide in and around Lisbon for many years. I would love to show you and your children the Lisbon I fell in love with!
