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. I now have my own tourism company after working as a guide for a while. 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.
We will cover all monuments in the UNESCO world heritage area: Historical Center, National Palace, Pena Palace, Moorish Castle, Quinta da Regaleira and Monserrate Palace, and the coastline: pictoresc villages, beaches and Cabo da Roca, also all the sightseeing, landscapes and views in between all the places.
