The tour was awesome! The castle in Silves was beautiful and our guide António really gave us interesting information. The visit to the thermal springs in Monchique was a nice stop on the way to the top of the mountain. The guide is very well informed about the local flora and fauna. The winery was beautiful and the wine tasted very good after such a day. The transport in Antónios van is very comfortabele. He also tells about the surroundings and has a lot of knowledge about the places you're visiting. We enjoyed it so much that we booked another tour with him two days later. I can only recommend this tour and our guide!

Our guide, António, was very knowledgeable and took his time with the trip, never rushing us. We were lucky because we were the only people, so we were able to alter the schedule because of the weather. Don’t forget to bring an empty water bottle to fill up at Monchique!
