Meet your intrepid guide in Spain & Portugal

Victor Garrido

“Travel is the Only Thing you Buy that Makes you Richer”

Hola! First of all I would like to introduce myself: my name is Victor Garrido and I will be his guide in Spain and Portugal.

The truth is that I am very excited and grateful to be able to guide groups and be partially ambassador of my country, Spain, and my second home, Portugal.

You may be interested in knowing a little more about that person with whom you are going to share many adventures. Vamos!

Little Victor was born in the city of Malaga on February 27, 1978, into a middle-class family. My mother, Mariola, was a school teacher, from whom I have inherited the organization, discipline, punctuality and above all this voice so easy to understand. Today she is enjoying her retirement together with my father, and they both travel all over Europe.

My father, Paco, has had many jobs, from a real estate developer, to a NATO military man, to a bank worker and finally a tour guide. From him I have inherited nonconformity, an adventurous spirit and a character open to people.

I have only one brother, and his name is Damian. He is also a tour guide but he only works in the city of Malaga, where I live. It’s funny, because being six years younger than him, I’m his boss!

For me, my family is one of the fundamental pillars of my life, and whenever I have the opportunity, I go to eat at my parents’ house or even travel with them to remote places on the planet.

I have been working with Grand Circle Travel since 2007, and when I started I was one of the youngest guides in the entire company. To this day I still am, but with much more experience and knowledge. 😅

My passions, apart from traveling, which is my true addiction, are gardening (I love botany), cooking, doing sports, especially hiking and climbing in the mountains. I am a great lover of history and geography, I always got the best grades in the whole school!

I am single, I do not have children, and I enjoy in my apartment the heart of Malaga with my two cats, my little demons: Harriet and Gingerbread. If you like cats we will talk a lot about them! During my free time I am a volunteer at the Malaga Animal Shelter where I collaborate in the international adoption department for the Netherlands, Scandinavia and Germany.

For me it is a real honor to be able to share these days together and be an ambassador of my land, transmitting the history of centuries from the Phoenicians to the Christians through Muslims, Romans and Carthaginians. I do not doubt that we will share a great experience together and we will learn a lot, do not forget that a day without learning anything new is a wasted day.
