Registered on December 30, 2019

I am a 37 year old Australian tour guide. I have 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 have decided to make Lagos my home. I love to have a good time and I love to help others have a good time. I am also passionate about the beauty of Portugal and the Algarve, and there is nothing I want more than to show it to others.

Tour description

During this guruwalk we'll walk through 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, Foods, drinks and about the important people that shaped this nation. I've been living in Lagos, on and off, for 17 years and during this time I've learnt a great deal about the history of Portugal and the port city 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. We'll finish this tour with a sweet Portuguese delicacy above the gorgeous Batata beach, and hopefully a drink at my favourite bar. Cheers Brodie

Brodie was our guide for a tour around Lagos on a Friday morning. Even with others canceling, Brodie completed our tour with only my wife and I present. He became our personal guide for the day and did a wonderful job showing us around the city that he loves. He showed us some great sights, while also providing us with many recommendations for while we were here in Lagos. Would definitely recommend.

Brodie is a fun guide, who shares his love for Lagos and Portugal. He took as to all the sights, give us lots of tips on things to see and do, good restaurants and bars. Brodie is very informative about Lagos, its history, culture and some myths. He even gave us a great lesson in Portuguese. We l went for a beer/ coffee afterwards- a great way to spend a few hours. Thanks Brodie for a fabulous intro to Lagos.

Since we were with child, we loved the pace of the tour. It has adequate stops and everyone of us could hear clearly with no rush. We had a fun time learning the tid bits and loved Brodie's tips.
