We went on this tour with a group of 4 & one additional girl joined our van. We were picked up at 230, however the wine drinking/ Winery tour didn’t start until 430. We did get to have some wonderful information passed to us about the history of Portugal and we were able to see the last standing castle. Our guide Juao was great, very engaging and funny! We stopped off at the castle & were able to explore for an hour. From there we made our way to the winery. We stopped off at PAXA wines, the tasting room in the Winery was beautiful, and the host, Nidia was wonderful. The wine was very delicious of course! Overall it was a great day out. Again, the Portuguese hospitality was amazing! Juao dropped us off at our dinner reservation instead of our original pick up spot & gave us good recommendations for restaurants. Personally I wish we had booked the longer tour to go to several wineries. But overall was a great day out!
If you want out of the tourist trap: Do this! Hugo was my guide and I totally recommend him. Next time I'm here I will do this again, with Hugo. Learned a lot and had a great time. This is not about money to him but showing the country he obviously loves. He also gave me two recipes and showed me a good place to eat. He almost cancelled but when I told him I could not reschedule I got a private tour. Again: Just do this! Totally recommended.
Friendly guides, well prepared, everything went well as planned. They asked before if all was ok or if we needed any more information or help finding the meeting point. We started in time and the boat was nice. The guides are friendly and funny and explained everything. The tour along the coast is really cool and the view is impressing. I think it is a must see - those rocks and caves from the waterside. We had a really good time.
Miguel and Paulo (I think that was his name) were AMAZING! We had such a great time cruising down the Algarve coast. They were friendly, knowledgeable and did everything they could to make sure we had a wonderful time. Definitely book with them!! I would definitely come back with more friends.
Amazing trip. Booking was easy. Miguel was very nice, helpful and made us laugh! The guides who took us around the caves knew a lot about the area, were very helpful and slowed down for long enough for us to take some great pictures. Overall, a wonderful experience!
