Alejandro Ramirez, Travel Consultant
Alejandro is Spanish, but he came to Portugal when he was 7 years old and he didn’t leave yet!
He choose to stay in Lisbon to study college instead of going back to Madrid. He took Hospitality Management as a career due to his ability to create empathy with people and his fluency in Spanish, Portuguese and English languages. He believes that in order to a traveler to fully enjoy travelling, he must feel at home and be understood, so good communication is mandatory.
After two years at a front office in a hotel in Lisbon he moved to Portugal Trails and Spain Trails to expand his options. “Why promote only one city, when you can show the whole country?” he asks. Even better! His two favorite countries! Portugal and Spain have hidden gems, secrets, amazing culture and gastronomy waiting to be discovered, and Alejandro will be one of the best assistants to discover it all!
