About :

I am a certified nature guide developing hiking activities and 4WD jeep tours in São Miguel Island - Azores, where I was born and raised, ensuring my guests a privileged contact with nature and guaranteeing and promoting the conservation of ecosystems and biodiversity. A few years ago I left my steady office job to embrace a dream - become a self-employed entrepreneur and give life to Carpe Diem dream tours. Nature, History and Geography are true passions of mine. With Carpe Diem dream tours I can combine all three and add another passion - sharing with others (locals and visitors) the magnificence of my Island, it's beautiful nature and culture. The feedback has been great and it motivates me in doing my very best each day. We at Carpe Diem dream tours are a dedicated and committed team and our goal is providing you moments that will last in your memory. Because for us a day is very precious.
