I took a keen interest to learn about the history and culture of Goa as I love history . I am very passionate about my state Goa and I love and enjoy what I do as a tour guide. I have now completed 19 years working as a full time Tour Guide Authorised by The GOA state Tourism Department.
If you choose to take up a tour with me I would love to showcase our Goan culture and historical heritage to a first time visitor or traveller visiting Goa. I am hard working and live up to what I commit on a tour.
I have a flair and passion for cooking but I am yet to master the art of cooking. I am a foodie and love experimenting with different recipes my best dish that I have cooked is oyster beef. As a hobby I like taking photographs of nature and interesting things and people around me.
A Recent Review of this guide
Mario took us off the beaten track to Southern Goa: we toured a 500 year old Portuguese home with a descendant of the original colonialist, saw a museum with an amazing collection of Goan history, ate lunch (vegetarian specially for us) on the veranda of the former dean of the Jesuits from the 1700's. You do not get to do these things on the big bus tours from the hotels or the cruise ships. Perfect English, knowledge like a college professor. We felt honored that we could go on tour with him
