Oeiras, Loja B, Portugal

Previous note: I am new on this particular site so probably not many reviews yet when you read this.

Now to my profile! If you are someone who enjoys a more local and less tourist approach and if you appreciate a guide who can educate you on the region/country, can give you good food/wine suggestions, and can take you discreetly and in comfort everywhere you would like to go both ON and OFF the beaten track, I am your man. Some time ago I discarded the traditional "organized tours" concept. I don't like tight schedules and itineraries, packed tourist cars and vans, waiting in huge lines at tourist attractions, going on auto-pilot in my interactions with my clients because. . well. . . "they're just another batch of easily forgettable and nameless faces like the ones the day before", stressing in traffic in order to stick to a rigid plan, and so on. I hate that when I am buying tours for myself abroad so I assumed that there were more people like me. And I was right. Those are the ones who I now work for. That includes you. (Having said all of the above be assured that I am a fully licensed and insured guide and I provide a professional service. I am "rogue" - in a good way - only in my approach and philosophy!)

So forget waiting in line and mingling with the masses - it's time to experience Portugal and Lisbon like one of the cool and discerning Portuguese who stay away from crowds and from . . . tourists (in your case, OTHER tourists)!
