Sintra and Cascais is what I call home, growing up in this region made me a passionate person for the natural and cultural environment that the region provides. I believe Portugal was made to be in the outdoors, so I decided to take advantage of it to make a living and become a tour guide. Showing around and telling my country's history is what I love to do, in a relaxed, friendly and informative way, as if guests had a local friend that provides a full cultural, historical, natural and gastronomic experience.
