Olá from PORTO!
Best European Destination 2012
UNESCO World Heritage Site
'4th Best Value Destination in 2012' by Lonely Planet
Born and raised in Porto and having worked in the travel industry, I have passion and pride for my city and country. Although small, Portugal is rich in culture and tradition, boasting 14 UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Four in Porto and surrounding area; Historic Centre of Oporto, Douro Valley Wine Region, port wine itself and Guimarães - European Capital of Culture 2012.
With over 15 years experience in the travel industry working onboard a 6 star luxury cruise line and exploring the world, I understand what guests want when they are traveling. As a restaurant manager of the main dining room onboard the ship, I have an excellent palate for food and wine as well as impeccable social and service skills. As a food lover, I have tasted a variety of international food and I have to admit that Portuguese gastronomy is relatively unknown and in my opinion, is one of the best cuisines in the world! Pair that with our wine and you will not want to leave. . . I will help you experience these treasures, and many more!
My enthusiasm for where I live and my love for traveling have lead me to become a personal tour guide offering diverse tours of Porto and the surrounding area. I provide professional service and pay attention to the small details, giving informative and unique commentary.
You will be driven in a spacious van with all the modern comforts. Walking tours, boat cruises and rail excursions are available options. I would be happy to customize a tour for you meet your needs should you prefer something different. Tours can be conducted in English, Portuguese, Spanish, Italian and French. Please see my list of tours for the diverse experiences available.
I am excited to assist you as your personal tour guide, creating a truly memorable experience for you and your party.
I look forward to revealing the beauty of Porto to you!
