Born in Portugal, lived in different countries during his youth. But always having Portugal in his heart. Being an off-road driver for over 25 years, I know Portugal and Morocco inside out. Therefore travelling literally “off the beaten track”, making friends along the way and getting to know their culture. All this led me to organize tours and trips for friends and family. Above all, taking them to remote places that are not normally seen, but are of extreme beauty. All this led to the foundation of TakingUThere. A travel experience company that can take people to parts of Portugal and Morocco left unseen. I and my team members put their heart and soul into each experience. As a result, taking you beyond the destination, away from the usual touristic hustle.
