When you meet José, the first thing that you notice is his love for his work. His enthusiasm is contagious and you can’t help but get excited about all that he’s about to show you. Through the stunningly unique and historic streets of Porto and its surrounding areas including Aveiro and Douro Valley, you quickly understand why his love for Portugal is fierce and why he wants to share it with his guests. With his camera in tow (and yours too of course), Jose helps you tell a story of a beautiful country with great history. I was overwhelmed with the magnificent cathedrals, the stunning views of Porto and surrounding towns, the magnificent azulejos that adorn buildings both inside and out. Beyond the sights and sounds of Porto, Jose is a delightful guide with a deep understanding of this beautiful country. I also enjoyed some wonderful and lively conversation over delicious Portuguese cuisine returning home not only with a full appreciation of this amazing place but a friendship that I know will be long lasting. My only wish is to go back!
