At some point in my life, I had to choose an area I wanted to follow, and without thinking too much, I chose Tourism and later Hotel Management at a Porto's famous hotel and tourism school. I attended the course with distinction and did two internships.
When I started my professional life I wanted to travel to other countries so I went to London for one year. I came back to Portugal and had the opportunity to work as assistant manager in a hotel in Central Portugal and from then on I never stopped. My passion for wine starts in this small town, Elvas, where you can breathe and live everything related to wine. Also, Port wine is rooted in my family - every Christmas and Easter, my father would open a bottle of the best Port wine he had in his personal wine cellar, and since very young age I would smell the wine and found it very funny the elders describing the aromas.
So now, here I am doing Wine Tours in the region of the Douro Valley. And I am the type of guide that for as many times that he makes the trip to the Douro, he never loses the smile when seeing those wonders again and again. So let me show this little piece of Heaven on Earth.
A Recent Review of this guide
Miguel gave our group a day of touring that we will not soon forget. The trip up the mountains in the Duoro Valley to taste Port was great. What beautiful sites he made sure we experienced. Then the lunch at the top of a miountain topped off an incredible day. Miguel is extremely knowledgeable, fun to be with, and professional in all ways. He stepped in when our original guide could not help us and we feel we got the best of the situation. Don't miss a day of touring with Miguel!!!
