Organized by

Miguel Ribeiro

We are a team directed by Miguel, who was born and raised in Porto, Portugal and Jennifer, a Canadian that has been living in Portugal for 7 years. We have both worked in the travel industry most of our lives, with over 18 years of experience combined onboard Crystal Cruises (a 6 star luxury cruise line), so when we weren't sailing, we were exploring the world ourselves, experiencing so much of its beauty and all that it offers! We came to land to start a tour company, providing professional guiding service with high attention to details and guests service, creating unique experiences and allowing our guests to discover this beautiful country and culture from an insider's perspective. We look forward to hosting you here!
