Ana Paula Nascimento Private tour guide in Vigo, A Coruña, Santiago de Compostela - Spain

Ana Paula Nascimento

Guide profile:

Hola, desde Vigo, Galícia - España!

Hi, from Vigo, Galicia - Spain!

Vigo is the most important and bigger city in the Northwestern Province of Galícia in Spain!

My name is Ana Paula Nascimento and I've been working as a private tour guide since September 2007.

Previously, I've worked for the Portuguese Gov't for 18 years, as a Tourist Information Pro, in the tourist office of Aveiro (the city where I'm currently living), and after that I've decided to work on my own, doing what I best love doing: be a guide!

This was an old personal dream: be professionally independent... and I feel it came to life right in 2007... when I went to live and work in Spain during 3 years, to get my permission to work also there as free-lancer guide!

I'm a licensed guide since 2007 and I have a Degree in Simultaneous Translation and Interpretation, by ISAI Institute of Porto.

I invite you to come along with me and discover the secrets of the millennial and almost ignored city of Vigo, out of the massive tourist routes enjoying a private guided tour!

Ana is a wonderful tour guide. Her knowledge and experience paid off when the van that she had hired for our party of six broke down so without delay she hired two taxis so we could still have our tour. When a ship tour filled the river cruise boat she intended to use she found another boat that we shared with locals who turned out to be a lot more fun than the ship passengers would have been. If we ever get to Vigo or Porto again we will definitely use her for our tours.

Ana was a joy to be with. She tailored our tour to our specifications, even arranging transportation so we could visit Santiago de Compostela during our cruise stop in Vigo. I was able to communicate with her prior to our actual visit easily as we finalized our tour itinerary. She was prompt, professional and knowledgeable. My husband and I could not have asked for a better experience and have wonderful memories of our day.

FANTASTIC

Ana was an outstanding tour guide who had a wealth of knowledge about everything local. In additon to the old town, the fort and the island, he took us to places most tourists never get to see. It was a very special tour of Vigo and one we will never fortget. It was such a pleasure meeting Ana. We will come again, not only to see Vigo but to see Ana.

Tour Guide Comment: Dearest Kerry, It was ceratinly my pleasure to show you a different Vigo, as I've enjoyed the most to meet you and your lovely daughters... you are such a special friend that I'm already missing you and I hope to welcoming you again in a next future! Thank you so much for your lovely words! A big hug from your tour guide and friend, Ana Nascimento

I am not always this excited to write a review about a tour that I took however this is an exception. There were 6 of us, all friends who were traveling through Europe but mostly on a cruise which stopped in Vigo, Spain. We booked a walking tour of the city with Ana and I can’t begin to tell you how lucky we were to get such a wonderful guide. We were celebrating a wedding and my sisters 50th birthday all at the same time. Ana took such good care of us and surprised us several times with wedding gifts, birthday gifts and a birthday cake. We wanted to experience the local wines and tapas of Vigo and she did just that. Frist she arranged a special picnic of wines and tapas up at the fort at the top of the city. It was handled by her friend Nestro who owns the Hotel Princesa and it was outstanding. Then she took us to Nestor’s hotel the Hotel Princesa where we sat out on the terrace and enjoyed local wines, champagne and tapas. She also included a birthday cake for my sister which was hom

Tour Guide Comment: Dearest Bryan, I've just runned out of words to express you my gratitude upon reading such a wonderful review as yours... It was my pleasure to make you all enjoy your day in Vigo, and it was my humble contribution to celebrate such important dates... Thank you so much! Your tour guide and friend, Ana Nascimento

We had a wonderful tour with Ana. Her knowledge of Santiago de Compostela was very good and everyone enjoyed the tour.

4 stars Jenny F. 10 Sep 2014

Ana was the perfect guide. She made us all feel very comfortable, was very informative, friendly and easy to be with. We had a fantastic day and nothing was too much trouble. Meeting us at the ship our guided walk took us to various locations in the city and places that we were interested to see. Anna shared the history and local knowledge. When then had a delightful lunch of local food and wine organised by Anna before being taken back to the ship. A great day made memorable by Anna!

Tour Guide Comment: Jenny, It was not me who was the perfect guide, but you who wrere the perfect person to be guided! I've enjoyed the most every single moment I was in your company, and it was my pleasure to guide you through Vigo! Thank you so much for your great rating and review! Best wishes from your friend and guide, Ana Nascimento
