Private tour guide Rafael

Rafael S.

Colares, Portugal

Hello I'm Rafael, I'm a local guide committed to take out of the beaten track, showing you the genuine side of my country I've been working as a guide for quite a while now, but I have done a bit of everything along my life.

I have a curious and adventurous nature that makes me want to discover more and better things. I think I have a pleasant personality and flexibility and am willing to give my best for you to have the best experience possible.
In my free time I dedicate myself to outside activities like spearfishing, climbing, bodyboard, mountain biking etc. . . . I also love cooking and drawing.
Along my work as a guide, I realize that there are a very limited variety of tour circuits which motivated me to provide something different and better.

I believe that my mission is to share with you the history, culture, nature and gastronomy that my beautiful country has to offer.
I am specialized in offering personalized experiences, taking you to places unknown by many. Places that have kept their traditions and giving my clients an authentic and richer experience. It's also a great way of supporting local communities, providing a sustainable tourism that I believe to be the future.
All tours are flexible and will be adapted to your necessities and interests.
I look forward to the opportunity of sharing my specialized knowledge and enthusiasm with you.

A Recent Review of this guide

Amazing day in Sintra with Rafael! He is so knowledgeable with the area that we avoided most of the more "touristy" sites in favor of off-the-beaten-path locations with stunning views. He took my interests and crafted a day that was both informative and fun...even had some time to visit the spots where Madonna filmed some music videos while living in Portugal. A great day and a great guide!
