Guide at a Glance
Sightseeing, Walking Tour
For the past several years, I have been working as a travel and sightseeing tour guide. I offer walking and bike tours around Porto.
Since my graduation from Tourism and Cultural Heritage, I see a city tour as a history and culture lesson. It is a dream job of teaching social sciences and humanities to those who visit my city.
What I enjoy most about guiding is the experience to teach about Porto such as the art, architecture, history and heritage. Another favorite of mine is the opportunity to meet new people from all around the world. I have already made a few friends with customers who came to visit Porto and I went to visit them in their homeland.
My walking tours encompass history and culture, food and beverage and sightseeing. Recently, I’ve been studying two models of tours, more focused on historical periods such as Middle Ages and 19th Century to guarantee a different and unique experience for those who are passionate about these specific time periods.
Nevertheless, I tend to use living cartography and pictures to enhance and improve my experiences when I’m guiding.
