I was born and raised in Porto (also known as Oporto), a populous city in Portugal. I've always been passionate about travel, and in 2016, I decided to head solo with just a backpack and explore South and North America alone for 5 months. It was one of the best experiences of my life!

I love to learn more about other cultures, but I’m just as interested in the culture of my own country, which I have come to value more and more. I worked one year in a hostel in Porto and I'm proud to have helped many tourists to explore and discover the charms of my beloved city.

Currently, I'm working at Portugal Premium Tours where I get to share all the charms of the entire country: from amazing beaches to unique small villages to secluded mountain spots. Portugal is a great country to visit for many reasons, not limited to its quality and diversity of activities.

Inês's Travel Expertise

For the past 2 years, I've been working as a travel consultant. I specialize in preparing itineraries for daily tours and also for tailor-made multiday programs that cover several cities in Portugal and are prepared according to the clients' interests and needs. I also budget proposals and give suggestions on restaurants, hotels or activities such as wine tastings, boat trips, activities for children and so on. Fortunately, I know many areas of Portugal—from north to south—and I'm happy to share and suggest unique places!

Inês's best travel experience

I have been to many places and have visited countries in many continents, including Europe, Asia, Africa and North and South America. I have good memories of all the places I have been to, but without a doubt, the trip that marked me most was the backpacking adventure I went on a few years ago. Exploring 4 countries, alone with only a backpack, was one of the biggest adventures I have ever had. Being a woman, I think there was more to fear, but this only added to the adventure. Accepting other cultures, adapting to new customs, making new friends and creating new routines in a new world is something I will never forget, and I intend to repeat!

Why is Inês the right travel expert

With my first-hand travel experience, I can be very helpful to other travellers who want to explore my country. I feel comfortable talking about Portugal because I know that it has the qualities that many tourists seek: diversity of regions and activities, good food, good wine and very fastidious people. In addition, Portugal is a small country with a lot of history. I am prepared to organize itineraries for any type of person taking into account unique individual interests!
