Hello, welcome to my website. I’m David Monteiro, and I’m a tour guide and owner of a tour operator and travel agency for Portugal and Spain – please check my company’s website at www.iberactive.com.

This website’s objective is to be a repository of my texts and photos, mostly related to the tours I’ve been leading.

Here, you will find information about Portugal and Spain, the two regions I work in. You will also find articles about other countries such as Ireland, Cape Verde, and some others.

Although I have my own company, I’m always open to join other projects, open new destinations for client companies, or work with other travel agencies.

While leading tours or acting as a consultant, life has led me to all the locations and situations you will find related here.

On this website, you can find two different repositories:

    • Portfolio area – where you can get the articles I write and photos I shoot during my tours;
    • Blog area – where you will find posts referring to other people’s production.

Please note:

    • The photos used on this website are my property, and they are under copyright.
    • They can’t be used without my express permission, and the texts are also not to be copied.

Please use this website as a base, take it from here, produce your own work, and add knowledge to the world.

On the other hand, I’m willing to consider participating in other projects I might find interesting. So, please talk to me.

I’m a tour guide, not a historian or a reporter.

Having that clear, the intention of the texts you will find here is purely entertaining, and they reflect my perspective of each subject.

I’m always studying, and I try my best to provide information based on several sources when writing about historical matters. However, when I’m writing about my own thoughts or opinions, you will also see that.

Portugal and Spain are countries I love and those I consider my home, although Cape Verde is the country where I was born.

Nevertheless, I know quite well my country, and it fills a special place in my heart.

Other countries mentioned here were visited during special projects or vacations.

In case you want to contact me, please send an email to david.monteiro@iberactive.com.

I welcome all contributions.

Have fun, comment on the texts, and share it with your friends.

David Monteiro
