Our guide, Benny, filled our day with historical intrigue and humour. Driving us to some fabulous sights with a running commentary that gave us a great feel for the region, from Castelo de Silves and Monchique to Cabo de Sao Vicente and lots in between. Memorable day, highly recommended! Note, it was late January so we benefited from a small tour group. The stops were well balanced to maintain schedule whilst allowing a sufficient amount of time to get the best out of each location.

I enjoyed the tour very much! Our guide was very informative and I learned so much about the Algarve. He was very knowledgeable and helpful. The sights were gorgeous and all the stops were amazing. I’m so glad I booked this tour.

Fernando is so knowledgeable on the history of the Algarve which I think there's nothing we didn't know at the end of the trip. He could answer every question I'm depth. Really enjoyed thank you

What a beautiful and amazing tour. Thank you to Benny for bringing the extra laughter and sunshine on this day. Really recommend this trip.

Mario was an extremely informative guide he made the day for us
