Olhos de Agua, Albufeira, Algarve, Portugal

Hi I'm Miguel and I would like to show you around the Algarve!

I was born right here in Albufeira and grew up enjoying the local beaches and countryside. I am a keen fisherman in my spare time and this has brought me to some of the most fascinating and beautiful spots along the Algarve coast.

On many of these fishing trips I have discovered so much more of the Algarve travelling through the most beautiful villages, chatting with some very interesting locals and stopping off here and there just to admire the views.
I have learned much more about our local history, customs and traditions than I ever imagined existed and have an extensive knowledge of the various surrounding areas.

I can show you the real Algarve beyond it's beautiful beaches. . . local points of interest, history and culture. Many Algarvian traditions and customs are often overlooked on coach trips etc. With a private tour you can take as much time as you wish to photograph the fantastic scenery, sample the unrivalled cuisine and of course our best kept secret the wine!

Food and wine are high on the agenda in the Algarve and conversation is often dominated by discussions about the best way to prepare a particular dish!Traditions vary from region to region but whatever you choose I guarantee you won't be dissapointed!Seafood, shellfish or meat dishes are prepared in time honoured traditions throughout the Algarve. I can recommend some of my favourites or explain whats on offer when we stop for lunch at any of our wonderful restaurants.

An amazing selection of wine is on offer from the Dão region, to the Alentejo or local Algarvian wines. You will be surprised how good the food and wine really are as well as great value for money. I'll do the driving so you just sit back and enjoy!

Experience the Algarve like a local!I have so much to share with you . . . truly an unforgettable place to visit. . . you may never want to leave!

A Recent Review of this guide

Miguel could not have been nicer and more accommodating. He was so nice and planned a nice trip around the Algarve. He was very knowledgable and spoke perfect English. We traveled with our 20 yr old daughter and almost 18 yr old son so the tour was fun and interesting for them as well. We asked Miguel about other beaches we could go to and helped us plan that as well. He was very polite and would recommend him highly.
