“Once a year, go somewhere you have never been before.”

- DALAI LAMA XIV -

My name is Filipe Alves and I was born in 1986 in the Portuguese town of Portalegre, before growing up in the capital, Lisbon.
After completing high school, I undertook a three-year bachelor’s degree in Tourism Information at the Estoril Higher Institute for Tourism and Hotel Studies, where I studied Portuguese and European History, Art, Culture, Social Studies, Politics, Decorative Arts and foreign languages. 

 

In 2008 I successfully passed the National Exam for Tourist Guides, and have since been working as a freelance tourist guide throughout Portugal. 

 

As a professional guide since 2008, I have escorted hundreds of groups from all over the world on travel programmes lasting from 1 to 18 days, and I have also worked with numerous Portuguese and international travel agencies.


From my studies and professional experience, I work in English, German, Italian, Spanish and Portuguese. Tourists have been very satisfied with my multilingual presence, pleasant nature, and interest and knowledge about the country and its people.
