Francisco L.

Vila Real, Portugal

The 5 years of experience in the tourism and food services are important but the additional value that I bring is the passion and the pleasure that I have, showing the culture, the food and the heritage of this beautiful country.

I can say that without knowing, all my life brought me to this point. From a tender age, I started to collect restaurants, dishes and places, with my family. Even now, I try to check as many places as I can, from the most simple to Michelin star. It was that relationship with food which opens my mind to exchange experiences with others.

My professional life started as a general manager for a logistics company. There, I had my first, professional contact with the wine industry that showed me the passion and the hard work around this product.
When I started my tours, what I wanted to show was the product for sure but also the people, the land and the life that are more important.

What a wonderful experience we had with Francisco. He was so knowledgeable and passionate about all of the places we visited with him and about Portugal in general. He went out of his way to to make our tour memorable and even gave us many suggestions of things to do and places to visit on our own. We would highly recommend using him and and cannot wait to come back.
