About West Vagabond Tours
People tell me that I am a friendly and communicative person, always ready to help. Well, like most of the Portuguese population.
I grew up dividing my time between Lisbon and the Portugal West Coast
By the hand of my grandfather, I discovered Lisbon secrets. Later, I explored the west coast searching for the best surf spots and pure nature.
In the university I became a tour guide and deeply studied my country, Portugal.
Since then, I welcomed travelers from the whole world, with whom I shared the authentic Portugal".
