Francisco L.

Lisboa, Portugal

Hello! I'm Francisco, a Lisbon native, or as we call ourselves here, a "alfacinha".

I've always lived in Lisbon so I'm very familiar with all the details but most of all I'm a great enthusiast of the Portuguese culture, history, and gastronomy, which are the main vectors why people find this marvelous country and it's people so appealing.

Although I've lived most of my life in the corporate environment as an executive, showcasing our culture and our country has always been a passion and so, after a few years of study, I started this business two years ago where I have the chance to interact and learn every day with different and astonishing people from all over the world. So come with me and learn some curious aspects of our history and culture while visiting some marvelous locations of my country.

You will find a lot of options in my tours, but nevertheless, these are always customizable tours and, you will be the kings of the day(s), meaning that we can always replace some aspects of the tour for others more interesting to you. Our tours can cover the whole of Portugal, the standard tours always depart and return to Lisbon, but according to your needs and availability, multiday programs can be arranged from one point of the country to others.

If you still don't find what you are looking for just text me and I'll write a custom program for you, according to your preferences and available time. Also if you wish to book more than one tour, please request a custom program where I can make a small discount when 2 or more day tours are ordered on the same trip.

I sincerely hope you have a great time while visiting Portugal and with my tours, I'm sure you will.
