Tour: Algarve countyside, Faro, Faro, Portugal
Date: Sep 4/19

Day Tour for 14. Excellent coach transport. tailored exactly to our needs to include a fascinating walking tour of Loule , wine tasting and an excellent Farmhouse lunch. Lovely lady who knows her region and many people in it well. Flexible and considerate - first class and do not hesitate to recommend her.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mr David, Looking at you all listening to me attentively made me feel grateful for beeing not only a guide but an insider showing my country.Designing this itinerary without knowing any of the 14 participants was even a bigger challenge!Not many requests are as specific as yours:countyside of the Algarve.80% of the visitors choose the coastline.So, i feel even happier we visited a local market,tasted good wine from a small inland farm and met someone who can serve excellent algarvian food!Memorable!

Working with Rosa was so easy! We emailed back and forth a few times and came up with a great schedule which on the day of the tour I totally changed and she oh so easily went with the flow of our changes. Rosa's van is very very comfortable and the places that she took us to were unbelievably gorgeous. She knows where every nook and cranny are to see the beautiful sites of the Algarve! if you have a chance to work with Rosa - do it - you will not be disappointed.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Mrs Julia for your comments.Very happy to know i fulfilled your expectation on this customized tour.I feel grateful when the feedback is so positive.Hope to see you some time back to the Algarve.

Four of us (all seniors) enjoyed a 4 hour tour of the beautiful Algarve Region including terrific Lagos with Rosa. The cliffs and beaches of the Algarve are awesome and Rosa watched over us closely. She is a very good driver and we were safe always. She is knowledgeable and professional . She gets our highest recommendation! I left my binoculars in her van. She went the extra mile to take them to the port agent and check to be sure I received them. I did. Thanks Rosa!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Mr Vaughan, I am thrilled that,after a long journey,you got your binoculars back home. More than that i am happy to know that ive left on you a deep and good image of the region i love so much! Much grateful for your words,it makes me feel more and more complete and tailored for this job . All the best to you and your friends. Rosa

Rosa is very knowledgeable about the country. She took us to some really nice picture spots. We enjoyed the conversation, her punctuality and professionalism. There is no better way to explore the Algarve. Definitely miles ahead of the bus tours which are terrible.

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!!

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!

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.

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.
