I've been a full-time private tour guide since 2010.
I love history, food and travel (not necessarily in that order).
My favourite hobby is research portuguese history, in order to understand and discover all the secrets of this old, and once powerful country.
Probably because of that, my tours are always different. I try to adapt the theme of the tour and the itinerary to each situation and, of course, to your interests and plans.
Portugal literally influenced all countries around the world, sometime in the past. So I'm quite sure I can find something interesting to surprise you.
I usually operate from the north of Portugal down to the city of Coimbra, but I can always make an exception. ;-)
During the tours, I focus on revealing the places you want to see, at your own pace, and not just the ones that are showned in the touristic guide books. It's always about the people, the small details, a few hidden gems, the legends and the stories of each place.
The tours I'm offering you are the result of a 10 years experience, and taking in consideration all comments, reviews and suggestions. All updated in 2020.
So, I kindly invite you to come with me discover Portugal.
Look forward to meet you!

A Recent Review of this guide
We've taken dozens of TbyL tours and every time we've had best guide and I think it just can't get any better, along comes a guide like Pedro who sets a new high water mark for knowledge, professionalism, courtesy and friendliness. His 3-hour walking tour was the PERFECT INTRODUCTION to the fascinating city of Porto. We learned so much and got such a great introduction we can't wait to head back tomorrow to do more exploring. He's one of the best and you'd be silly not to book with him.
