Lisbon, Sintra, Óbidos, Coimbra, Évora, Porto, Douro Valley, Portugal

I'm working as a Touristic and Entertainment Manager and Consultant since 2004.

Before (from 1996-2003) I had an international career that made me travel a lot. So I've really experienced the advantages of having a local person to help me out.

Both of these two professional experiences made me a guide that tour through the traveler's eyes. I try to put all my training, my knowledge and sensibility at the service of my clients, trying to offer them the best tours. I like to show visitors what is beyond the standard, normal, and conventional touristic agencies don't show, because it's not it's not so profitable. I am really used and passionate to contact with people from other cultures, so my customers are like my family for a day.

I'm both very sharp and organized, but also open and flexible if customers wish to customize and adapt the tour and itinerary to suites them more. It always depend on customers will.

I am always in a good mood and I really like to keep an interesting conversation about my country and to learn from the others.

I am looking forward to welcome you in to my country.

A Recent Review of this guide

Such good fortune to have met José at the NYT Travel Show! His knowledge and stories, his extensive planning and professionalism, along with his caring and cheerful companionship made our 8 days touring together amazing. We also had private tours tailored to our interests thanks to José making special arrangements. José took personal time to send suggested itineraries and restaurants for days on our own. We truly enjoyed getting to know José as a friend as much as we loved our trip through Portugal.
