About the guru Brodie

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.

About the tour

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 12 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.

Had the best walking tour with Brodie, learning about the history and culture of Portugal! So very knowledgeable and answered all the questions I had, we even got an almond treat at the end!

Being a free walking tour is great as you pay what you think it’s worth (not that it is ever bought up through the tour) and this one was well worth my €20!

I think the previous reviewer who only gave it a two star was probably stoned himself as Brodie was very much on the ball for the whole two

Thanks so much,

Today we indulged in another one of the 'free' 'pay what you like' GuruWalk tours, this time in local Lagos. So far these have been superb. Not so much this one. Brody was our guide, a tall, long-haired Aussie dude, and his heart clearly wasn't in it. Almost every place Brody showed us was closed, so it was, "Here's a fabulous old church with a Chapel of , it's closed. Here's the , it's closed. This is my favourite place to have Oh, it's closed."

It was a bit of a non-tour, and my partner seemed to know more about Portuguese history, and filled Brody in (not literally!) over missed facts, while I, as a previous tourist in this town, gave the other two participants some handy hints of what to do in the locality, and could name the birds and flowers. Brody didn't stop to wait while I took pictures, and I found myself constantly running to try and keep up. It's also been a long while since someone took the piss out of me for being vegetarian, and Brody found it bizarre that we didn't kill and eat animals, and kept recommending 'delicious' meat dishes to try. Fucking hilarious. I would recommend that Brody doesn't get stoned before he next takes tourists out.

Brodie was punctual, fun and informative! He knew all about Lagos and was very helpful in providing us with a map of further places we should check out as far as restaurants, bars, etc. Would recommend!
