My name is Thomas and I am from Denmark I make guided tours because I can’t help it. Being a guide is not a job it’s a lifestyle. I have been a tour guide since 2005 in many places in the world but my first destination was actually Sao Miguel. I fell instantly in love and decided back then that I would be back here someday. Since then I have been doing free tours in Copenhagen, Madrid, Hamburg, Prague, and Aarhus. But now I’m back and call the Azores home.
