I'm Alex, a 31 year old archaeologist and travel guide passionate about the flipside of history and the small curiosities and oddities that evade our everyday gaze! I have 5 years of experience as a tour guide in Portugal and Spain, and there's nothing I like more than exploring and researching local history and translating it to open-minded travellers that want to get under the skin of places.
Awesome tour. Alex is generous articulate and very skilled at communicating the unique currents of Portuguese social and political history in a super engaging way. He is astute at tailoring the focus of the tour to the guest's interests. We shared a couple of beers after the walk in a lovely Alfama plaza overlooking the city. Highly recommended.
Alex was great.
I have no hesitation in recommending it. We had a great time with Alexandre, he's funny and made an excellent and exciting tour, not the usual boring walking around the city but a fascinating viewing and histories of Portugal.
