"Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all."


Hello everyone!

This is my travel blog and website: Secrets of Portugal.

I have been working as a Tour Guide in Portugal for the last 6 years.

During this time I had the chance to visit many stunning places and I guided many different groups in a lot of museums, castles, convents and other incredible monuments all over Portugal!

Portugal is an amazing country with lots of different things to do and see: it has a great historic heritage, delicious food, superb wines and breathtaking landscapes!

Therefore, I have decided to share with you my innumerous travel experiences and to tell you more about the many secret (or almost secret!) places I have been to!

I have a degree in History and I do private and customized tours in English, Spanish, French and Portuguese.

Book a private tour with me, share my passion for Portugal and discover the fabulous secrets of my country!

Best regards,

Nuno Alegria
