Hi! I am Sara and I am 52 years old.

I was born, studied and I always lived in Porto. In fact, since I was a child, I always liked to walk around the city, as well as to discover its secrets and talk with its people.


Overall, from the Douro, I keep wonderful memories of when I travelled with my grandparents to Aregos and participated in the corn and grape harvest … In fact, on our way home, we were always loaded with baskets of grapes of the most varied colors, wine, olive oil and, above all, of tender memories!


I was a schoolteacher for 23 years and after becoming unemployed in 2012, I decided to invest in myself. In other words, I graduated with a Master’s degree in Tourism, my true passion and, meanwhile, opened my company, Oporto & Douro Moments, in 2013.

At first, it was only me, but soon it extended to the family and quickly became a recognized company in the luxurious segment, providing personalized and exclusive travel services.

Now, there are other Moments to feel, also Experiences to live and Emotions to remember! 😀
