Nuno Tavares, Owner & CEO
He's an Electronic Engineer and after some years working in the telecommunications area as an engineer, he decided to invest and start his own business. Since he always loved personalized and charming tourism and, enjoyed very much staying far away from the crowds (as a traveler), he decided to create a travel company with this ideal of service, combining also a great care to detail and with the customer. "I've decided to start a company that could design tourism services for clients as discerning as myself. Many people asked me why I've left the engineering area. I always answer that I didn't: I think that the engineer capabilities that I've learnt and developed are important to manage any kind of business and I'm using them here at Tours For You, believe it or not! QoS (acronym meaning Quality of Service) is an important factor in Engineering as it is in Tourism ;-)"
