Joaquim Domingos


I may answer most of the questions about tourist travel, but limited to the Lisbon area. Itineraries, hotels, restaurants, monuments, real estate, etc. Please AVOID to ask me information about the rest of Portugal. I am NOT an expert on Algarve or Spain! Please understand that I will not answer questions concerning any place out of the Lisbon area. Also please avoid to ask questions about visas or other legal matters (employment, driving licenses, etc.)

Experience in the area

More than 30 years experience organizing small group tours in Portugal, now acting in an individual basis (retired).


Degree in Sociology (Lisbon University).
