I'm graduated in Philosophy by Porto University. I have always been a walker: I did the Camino and the levadas of Madeira island. These experiences, especially the first one, changed my perspective of life and underlined this taste I have for walking. Now, I'm working as local guide in Douro valley. I've created my own company based on hiking and walking tours: Douro Walks. I believe that walking and hiking are excellent ways to meet Douro. It is a pleasure to me to talk about the ways of life, the traditions and the flavours of Douro. A local guide, deeply rooted in the portuguese Douro, memorable landscapes and a typical picnic will be waiting for you. I will show you Douro as it is to locals: an enchanting yet rough workplace and home.
