What people are saying about Lagoa

AN AMAZING TOUR! I definitely recommend booking this full day winery tour. The day started with an on time pickup from the hotel, transport was clean and comfortable. First winery was a pleasure to visit, groups are kept small for a more intimate experience. Our 2hr stop in Silves was the perfect amount of time to visit the castle grounds, wander the narrow streets and grab a bite to eat! Our guide was a pleasure to listen to and had great tricks and facts up his sleeve to keep the tour interesting ie fresh oranges and lemon leaves were fantastic. We were lucky to have great weather and an amazing group so in saying that my only criticism is that there wasn’t enough time at the second winery to share another bottle of wine! Overall fantastic tour, great guide and an amazing day!

The hike with Mónica was an incredibly great experience that I can recommend to anyone who wants to learn more about the island's flora and fauna, history and culture. Although I was the only guest on the day of the activity, the tour took place and Mónica showed me numerous magical places on the island in addition to the hike at Lagoa do Fogo. Mónica's knowledge of historical events and her enthusiastic way of conveying the facts and legends are particularly impressive. The activity was super organized and made the day perfect for me. Thank you very much for the unique experience!

We had such an amazing time on this tour! It absolutely exceeded our expectations. Our tour guide was patient, informative, and answered all our questions. The charcuterie board that accompanied the wine tasting was the icing on the cake. Thanks so much!

Really great experience. So informative, informal but a real elevated experience. We even had a resident kitten just on our tour. Highly recommend and the nibbles we’re gorgeous too.

Very well organized wine tasting in a beautiful location! Nice explanation about wines, corks, bottles etc. in a beautiful setting.
