●Private tour through history, old villages and the natural park Ria Formosa.


The best of the east. . .
Faro, is the Algarve's capital, is a thrilling city waiting to be discovered.
Visit to the old quarter.

Olhao is a coastal town in the Algarve which grew out of the fishing industry in the seventeenth century.
The fishmarket on the waterfront is still Olhão's main draw. A quaint and energetic place, the market sells local products such as fruit, honey and a huge variety of fresh local fish.
The old quarter of Olhão has a distinctly Moorish feel.

Santa Luzia village is famed for its octopus, which is caught using traditional methods.
With the small train we will go across the lagoon protected area and access Barril beach.

Tavira is one of the gems of the eastern Algarve. Straddling the River Gilao and the River Segua, its gentle charm and predominantly low-rise architecture. Sometimes referred to as the Venice of the Algarve, it boasts a seven-arched Roman bridge, some fine Renaissance architecture, numerous churches, tree-lined squares and a romantic air.

Stop at the Salt Flats

Itinerary

Departure to Faro, the capital of the Algarve.
Visit to the old quarter.

Drive to Olhão and stop at the traditional fish, fruit and vegetable market.
I am sure you will be amazed with the huge variety and freshness of fruits and fish our land and sea provide.

Departure to Santa Luzia at the Ria Formosa lagoon.
With the small train we will go across the protected area of the lagoon to the beach Barril.
About 30min time to enjoy the pure Atlantic ocean, the dunes and the long beach.
You can also enjoy a cup of coffee or a drink at the bar.

Short drive to Tavira.
Sometimes referred to as the Venice of the Algarve, it boasts a seven-arched Roman bridge, some fine Renaissance architecture, numerous churches, tree-lined squares and a certain romantic air.
Worth to visit are the ruins of the Moorish castle, the battlements of which can still be visited and from where one gets the best view of the town, its many church spires, ornate rooftops and indeed the river.
Stop at the Salt Flats.
