Registered on December 30, 2019

I'm a 37 year old Australian tour guide. I've been living in Lagos on and off for the last 12 years, after getting married and buying a house in the last 12 months, I've decided to make Lagos my home. I love a good time and love helping others have a good time. I'm also passionate about the beauty of Portugal and the Algarve and want nothing more than to show it off to others.

Tour description

During this guruwalk we'll cover all of the Lagos old town along with the modern Avenida das Descombrimentos. You'll learn about the Portuguese age of discovery, the great earthquake of 1755 and about the important people that shaped this nation. I've been living in Lagos for 15 years and during this time I've learnt a great deal about the history of Portugal and the port town of Lagos. Alongside this I've picked up many secrets on great restaurants, bars and places of interest along with a bunch of money saving tips for travellers. I like to entertain so I promise a few laughs, along the way, during this free walking tour. We'll finish this tour with a sweet Portuguese delicacy above the gorgeous Batata beach, and hopefully a drink at my favourite bar.

Brodie has a calm and cool vibe matching Lagos. He was informative and ready with answers to our questions. He also taught us some basics to speaking Portuguese which was quite fun. Thanks Brodie!
