Our Trip Leaders Make The Difference

Local Leader.
Partner in Discovery.
New Friend.

Your VBT Trip Leaders are passionate about travel and devoted to sharing new discoveries with you. Each is a multi-lingual resident of your destination who intimately knows the history, cultural heritage, and traditions of your surroundings.

Your Trip Leaders also bring insiders’ knowledge of the best places to explore, dine, and shop—along with insight into local customs and lifestyles to help you make the most of your cultural experience. With keen organizational skills, a splendid sense of humor, and a talent for making you and your fellow travelers thrive within your group dynamic, your VBT Trip Leaders will be invaluable resources—and treasured friends!


I’ve always felt this region is a special place where nature and culture have been very well preserved, and where people live a quiet, simple, and environmentally friendly way of life.

Manuel grew up in Lisbon and has been living and travelling around Portugal all his life, especially in the Alentejo and Algarve regions, where most of his family is.


This is an amazing adventure, full of beautiful walks, historical secrets, and delicious food and wine—a real cultural immersion.

A native of Portugal, David loves to introduce guests to the local customs, traditions, food and wine, fauna and flora, and history of his homeland.

We thoroughly enjoyed our first VBT experience. The tour route was very well laid out and we cannot not say enough about how impressive our tour leaders, David and Frederico, both of whom are natives of Portugal. Kudos to VBT for the way they planned and conducted our tour!
