I´m from Chile and lived 25 years in Argentina, both Countries known by their wonderful landscapes and their sophisticated and amazing wines. Having been a Travel agent for more than 30 years, I decided to complement my job, graduating as a Tour guide in 2.010 in Brazil. I lived in São Paulo for more 15 years, where I met my husband and where I was very happy guiding hundreds of foreigners visiting the city. Since December 2017 we live in the charming and beautiful city of Porto, place that we love and where I enjoy very much working. I try to "humanize" and customize each tour, because I believe that every family has its DNA when it travels.
Wine Tasting For those who do not taste wines, we offer mineral water or juice.
