Tour: #186781, Discovering the Discoveries, Lagos, Faro, Portugal    view tour
Date: Sep 12/17

We have been to over 100 countries and Rosa is one of our top ten in guides! She met us at our hotel with a printed map of The Algarve and the day's itinerary so we could see as much as possible. We have never had someone go "the extra mile" like this. Rosa also re-read all our e-mails so her memory would be refreshed as to what we would like to experience in our short time in The Algarve. We cannot say enough about her professionalism, organization, easy-going personality & friendliness. Bravo Rosa!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mrs Heather I knew your time was short yes,and mostly i had the great responsability of making your visit memorable since you speciffically said most of the visitors stay in Douro and end up not visiting the Algarve. Im glad you took a goog look at our blue atlantic and the important historical sites and you are able to say now that there is more than sun and beach in southern Portugal. Obrigada to both of you for your visit. Best regards Rosa

Rosa drove 80 km from her home town to meet us at the port with a big smile and had printed out maps and the day's itinerary for us. She has a large comfortable minivan and showed us all the highlights of the Algarve area of Portugal. She was so historically informative! We had lunch in a delicious seafood restaurant overlooking the Mediterranean. There were plenty of photo stops. Couldn't have been better! 6 out of 5 stars!!!!! Thanks, Rosa!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mrs Barbara Thank you very much for sharing your opinion here. The moment i saw that i could transform a simple tour to the West into a memorable experience in Algarve knowing your past experience,i didnt think twice and i did my best to fullfil your expectation .Thank you for your lovely smile,thank you for sharing your art with me,it made me a reacher human beeing inside!

Date: Apr 6/17

Rosa was more than we could have ever hoped for in a guide - friendly, knowledgeable,professional,fun,interesting and caring. We spent a day with her touring Algarve and even had a surprise airport pick up of another friend which she helped pull off seamlessly. Rosa made it very clear that it was our tour and she would do all in her power to show us everything that interested us and cover all the activities we wished,and she delivered! Rosa is a very lovely and genuine person who is excellent at her job.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mrs Christine Thank you very much for your comments on my services.Beeing with the three of you made me feel i was showing the Algarve to my friends and later in the day,to my family. Your energy,your interest for the history and culture of our people made me feel even more grateful to help you in this discovery.Looking forward organizing another surprise tour for your party!Obrigada

Rosa is a wonderful and diligently experienced lady with a deep understanding of the Algarve. My tour was a very reasonably priced 1:1 tour specially tailored to help me in deciding which town to relocate to in my retirement. If this is your plan, then I recommend a tour with Rosa as essential due diligence for you. Simply contact her and explain what you need.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Mr Ken! It was a fantastic experience to me as well,to be able to go towards your expectation and needs.Ill be very happy to welcome you soon as a resident too and wish you the best luck!

Rosa was great. She made Portimao and Lagos interesting and fun. Nice way to spend a day. I would definitely book her again.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Mr & Mrs Karu,for your comment.It will be my pleasure,if you would return to Algarve to share with you not only a portuguese coffee again,but also the chance to show you the paradise of Ria Formosa as Mrs Karu was so interested in nature and birds. Keep enjoying life!
