Ola, I am Jean-Rémi, the owner of MY GREEN BREAK. I love offering you the experience of a life time in Portugal. When I moved to Portugal, I started out as a sports guide offering hikes and bike trips. Through that I discovered many wonderful natural sites, one more beautiful than the other. My favourite is the Peneda-Gerês National Park, a natural treasure that combines waterfalls, rivers, viewpoints, mountains, fauna and wild flora. Then my curiosity led me to discover all the cultural sites of Portugal, to know the history, origins, evolution and mysteries. I think I am privileged to live next to the most mysterious of these monuments, the Convent of Christ in Tomar.
Why to choose My Green break
Using my services as a guide will take you into my daily life of discoveries, encounters and the local way of life. My friends describe me as generous and friendly and I love sharing my knowledge and anecdotes with my clients. I aim to create tours that will exceed your expectations, and I have a pretty good track record so far if I may say so I will gladly handle all the organisation and logistics for you. Through my job I get the opportunity to meet new people whether it’s you during our common adventure or the many locals we will meet on our journey.
Being a guide means offering a more human and warm service so that this trip will be unforgettable for you. Here are three key words describing what I want to deliver through MY GREEN BREAK: adventure, fun and sharing. It is with great pleasure and with my famous smile that I will accompany you during your experience in Portugal.
