●Join me for the most comprehensive 4 days tour through Algarve and Alentejo provinces.


In the Algarve and Alentejo, your tour will take on a historical flavour.
All around the region, you will find the chance to discover some of the charms and secrets of Portugal's history and traditions, which time has not yet managed to erase.
From the windswept shores of the Atlantic Ocean at Sagres and Cape Saint Vincent to the stunning rock formations at Lagos or from the fishing village of Santa Luzia to the salt flats of Tavira you will discover with me some of the less known faces of the Algarve.

Come with me to follow the trails of the portuguese history and discoveries in Lagos and Tavira.

Join me and I will unveil to you the old historical town of Évora classified by the UNESCO as world heritage site, with it's roman temple or the St. Francis Church with the odd Bone's Chapel.

Experience the flavours and scents of the Olhão markets, the taste of the local almond liquour and the breathtaking views from the Monchique mountain.

This is the perfect tour to enjoy the past and the present. . .
