Absolutely LOVED this wine tour. It was the highlight of my trip in Algarve. Absolutely beautiful vineyard and very informative tour of wine making. The ticket is such good value with 4 glasses of wine and free bread & olive oil. I can’t recommend this enough!!

This was a really enjoyable activity. It is quite challenging though and we saw younger children getting a bit frustrated. It is good value for money as there are 22 holes to play.

Very informative guide, excellent activity to pass away a few hours. Fab location, beautiful views across the valley.

Great time spent with family. The children were delighted. Very clean place.
