Excellent day out. Really recommend anybody interested in this to do it. João (tour guide) was just amazing. Collected us outside our Airbnb dropped us back to the door, gave us loads of facts and history of the area. Stopped in Silves and were given complimentary port and a brief history of the area. After this we were told about how corks were made and the process of making them. We got to see the process of making wine in the wineyard and even got to speak to one of the owners. We were given a sample of 3 of the wines and then given a glass of our top preference. A platter was also provided. This was an excellent way to tour the Algarve area. Tour takes about 4 hours and was not rushed.
Joao our host was fantastic. We got picked up from our hotel and he transported us to the magnificent town of Silves explaining Portuguese history on our journey. We stopped off at the castle with amazing photo opportunities. We then made our way to the vineyard of Paxa, tasted the grapes, saw the wine making process, enjoyed the scenery before trying some of the wines they had to offer. (A group of IRISH so we maybe tried more than we were allowed). We then got transported back to our accommodation. A speculator day out in Portugal.
We absolutely loved it! We had a nice guide that told us some very interesting things in a clear way. We were always allowed to take pictures or to wonder around a little longer. We got a warm welcome at the winery and the wine tasting was perfect!
We had a fantastic day, Antonio was very helpful and informative. This trip allowed us to see areas we wouldn't normally be able to get to, it was thoroughly enjoyable from start to finish!
Interesting and fun day out :) the tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable
