What people are saying about Portimão

We were picked up from our hotel by the lovely Hugo. There were 7 of us in the back of the open top Jeep. We were taken along back roads through villages and into the mountains. We saw many citrus trees, olive trees, quince, pomegranate, carob, peach and pear trees. Also sampled wild thyme, mint, rosemary and even smelled the leaves of a pepper tree. We saw farms with black pigs and goats. We even saw an avocado plantation. We stopped for a coffee break and for a break to sample the local fire water, the peri peri spice and to taste the local homey. Due to the weather being cold (as it’s nNovember), we did not do any swimming. It was also cold in the back of the Jeep, though if you dress warmly it would be fine. We had a very enjoyable day and would recommend this trip to anyone wanting to see the sights of Portugal away from the beaches.

This wine tasting is highly recommended for every connoisseur of good wine, as well as sustainable and ecological cultivation. In a country house typical of the Algarve, the owner presents himself in an authentic way that has created a pleasant sense of wellbeing for the entire time on site. The quality of the wines is on a very high level.

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!

Best decision to explore the caves with the pirate ship. The ship looks a lot and after we are along the coast with some information from the brilliant captain, we were able to explore the caves with the dinghies. Thank you for the great trip!

We had an amazing experience everything about it how accommodating and pleasant the driver was the other people that had the experience with us the sites
