I’m a language graduate and I used to work as a teacher in the Portuguese schooling system. I used to work as a nature guide in my free time off school until I decided to change permanently to become a guide in full time. I’ve always been an outdoor enthusiast and because of that I feel that my experience can help you to get to know the best spots in Portugal. I’m sure you will be delighted and will want to come back soon!

António Gavinho Although I started to get a degree as a Chemical Engineer and worked in management for almost 20 years, my great passion have always been cycling, hiking and exploring great places! That’s what I do now and that’s why I’m so happy with my life and enjoying receiving people in Portugal and help them to discover the hidden treasures of Portugal!
