I love my homeland and I feel part of the winding river, the green and blue distant mountains and the endless vineyards that overcome the landscapes in Douro.
My family has a small production of wine and olive oil, and is responsible for the field work of some other small Douro "Quintas" (Vineyard Estates), so I have a deep knowledge and expertise of how things are done in the Port Wine region.
With my experience in a 5 star Hotel (Pestana Palácio do Freixo - Oporto) , and as an Head Waiter of a top restaurant, I may assure you that I will receive you well and will take you to the gastronomic experience that you are looking for.
I'm a passionate for history, traditions and legends, since I remember myself and I would appreciate very much to share with you the most interesting ones in Douro.
I will take you off the tourist informational grid and give you a insiders view of Douro.
I have a different approach about the Douro Valley, it's not all about the wine, there's much more tradition, myths, and unrevealed mysteries that you will love to know.
Besides my homeland, I have lived in Madrid, Spain for one year, and in the portuguese cities of Porto, Aveiro, Viseu and Lisboa, so if you want a multiple city tour, I'm definitely someone that could guide you.
I may also provide transfers between Porto, Lisboa and the Douro Valley in any direction.
I understand that you are unique and I'm always available to customize my services especially for you.
A Recent Review of this guide
I was pleasantly pleased with all the small details Bruno read from my email and provided me. I planned this trip with only giving him a couple of days to provide an itinerary and get ready for it. Every restaurant was even better than imagined and every winery was exceptional. He knows everyone and is able to change something if needed without a problem.
I have a Bachelor in Hotel Management - F&B - received at the Hotel and Tourism School of Turismo de Portugal - Douro\Lamego in 2016.
I was the Head waiter at an upscale restaurant in Peso da Régua.
