I am the founder, CEO and one of the head guides of my tour company. I was born in Porto and always studied and worked in this unique city. I am passionate about Portugal and organize tours mainly in Porto and the Douro Valley wine region. I privilege authentic experiences and the contact with the people, valuing local economy. With a Master degree in enotourism and being a local, I adapt to client’s needs, thus making my tours go by in a very familiar and welcoming atmosphere. Being a professional in the area for about 8 years, it makes me take clients to unique and non-touristic places, choosing the best food spots, charming wineries and wonderful wines.
S. Bento train station is famous for its 20 000 tiles with the history and ethnography of the north of Portugal. During our walk you will be able to contact with the locals and get to know the authentic "tripeiros" (name given to oporto inhabitants). In Aliados Av. you will find the beautiful city council and numerous statues and iconic buildings. Heading to Lello bookshop, an inspiration for Harry Potter with an amazing architecture,...
