Joao Gomes Filipe - Private Guide in Lisbon
Languages: English, French, Spanish
Greetings from Portugal! First of all let me introduce myself. My name is Joao Gomes Filipe and I have been working as a professional private guide in Lisbon for the past seven years. My tours are designed in such a way that you will have an opportunity to experience being in Portugal as an insider and not as an ordinary tourist. By means of my tours you would be able to take a look at the life of the locals and compare it with your own way of living.
I will help you immerse in the Portuguese culture and history! I offer a wide range of private tours. It is worth noting that Portugal is a remarkable country which has much to offer for any kind of tourist. That’s why all of my tours are focused on different things. For example the religious tour is focused on the Jewish heritage in Portugal. If we speak about the cultural trips I would definitely advice you to take a private tour in Lisbon, where you will discover dozens of outstanding and unique places which date from the ancient or even prehistoric times.
If you are interested in having an active vacation I would advice you to pay attention at the hiking and biking tours. Note that all the tours I provide are flexible. It means that the timing and the itinerary depends mostly on your desires and opportunities. If you have any special preferences regarding your holiday in Portugal I would be interested to hear you out so we could design the best possible tour personally for you. In this regard private tours are definitely better than the commercial ones, in the case of which you have to put up with the strict schedule of the guide. I speak fluently several languages: Spanish, English and French.
I have a great experience in all that regards guiding in particular and tourism industry as a whole. I have worked as a site representative and a tour operator for several years.
