To conclude her studies Tourism and Recreation Management, Kim came to Portugal in 2006 for a three month internship and then simply never left! She took a few years exploring the country, living in Porto and the Algarve, while gaining experience working for the main international tour operators. Since 2013 she is a full-time local guide for Geographic Algarve, where she can share her love for and knowledge of Portugal in the best way.
Maarten is passionate about travelling. When he got the chance to work for an international tour operator, exploring many countries all over the world, he didn't need to think twice. But when he was sent to Lisbon in 2015, he quickly felt: this is the right place to be. Since then, he has been roaming the streets of the city and its surroundings. Sintra, Arrábida, Nazaré,... they have no more secrets for Maarten. He is a real Lisbon & Sintra specialist.
Vasco spent his student years in Lisbon, knowing every corner of the city, but soon came to the Algarve to turn into reality the vision he had. He founded Geographic Algarve to show you more than anyone else did, to give you a profound experience of the local culture, a true taste of the real gastronomy and an insight into the importance of the natural regions. Nature tourism before it became a thing. After 25 years, the original is still the best!
