Faro, Algarve, Portugal

Every one of my tours happens in a very relaxed but attentive way because time is precious and that is unpriced!

Hi, my name is Rosa and i'll be very happy to meet you in the Algarve, the southern most province of Portugal. With long years of experience and my certification as a tour guide, I'll make sure your visit to Portugal will be unforgettable.

After leaving Africa where I was born, i've always felt a great need to travel. It is to me as essential as reading a book. I love history, I need to know the past to better understand the present. Those were strong enough reasons to make me embrace the path of becoming a certified guide, a career that i've been building in Algarve for 29 years! I say building because a guide is like a walking encyclopedia, and we have to be constantly updated.

More than big groups I prefer to guide private tours. On my tours you'll be comfortably seated on my own van, air conditioned, fully insured, and legally allowed to be with you everywhere in the country, outside and also inside the monuments. Only official guides can do so! And besides, a van can go to many places totally inaccessable by bus.

My tours are designed to offer private versions of any of the trips available in Portugal or can be tailored to create a unique and very personal travel experience.

After all this, you only have to say and I will meet you at the place and time you decide.

Looking forward welcoming you to the Algarve!

A Recent Review of this guide

Rosa is very knowledgeable about the country. She took us to some really nice picture spots. We enjoyed the conversation, her punctuality and professionalism. There is no better way to explore the Algarve. Definitely miles ahead of the bus tours which are terrible.
