Ruben P.

Porto, Portugal

My name is Ruben. I am native from Porto city and I have prepared several tours with different destinations, history and landscapes.

In terms of my graduation I have a degree in psychology and a master degree in management. Because I like to work with people from different cultures, practice different languages and I also have a great knowledge about my country I decided to start in tourism area since 2015.

For me it will be a pleasure and a proud to show you my country.

I describe myself as a guide who like to share good moments and provide information details about the history and culture of my country. It will be a pleasure to know you, and provide you a great service. I like to be flexible and adapt myself to the different needs and preferences of my customers.

Please let me know your interests and I will do my best.

A Recent Review of this guide

I came to Porto, Portugal with a broken ankle and couldn't walk much. Most of the tours involve a lot of walking on uneven ground so I requested a driving tour with stops along the way and Graham at Tours By Locals set me up with a private, 4-hour tour of Porto with Ruben P. He was a fantastic guide and gave me the history of the city, took me to the Yeatman Hotel in Gaia overlooking the river and city, as well as to Porto points of interest, like the cathedral and train station. Highly recommended!
