We changed our tour program but did not find the guide to be overly informative. We took several day trips in Portugal with other tour companies and this was by far the priciest. It was not worth the money charged.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Annette, thanks for your feedback. it is always good to know the opinion of my guests to be able to evolve. During the tour I tried to do my best, and meet all your last minute requests, some of which completely changed the tour we were going to do. We made many more miles than expected and even stopped for you to buy a suitcase which made us have less time to visit the beautiful places that were in the itinerary. The value of the tour is meant for a private tour and so far has had excellent feedback.

There did not seem that there was much to see or learn about in this shore excursion although the old fort was interesting. Antonio, however, is a totally engaging person and fun to spend time with.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi John. I always try to adjust the tour to the needs of each person. Usually my guests find the places we have visited very interesting with a lot of historical information and amazing natural beauty. It was a pleasure to meet you. All the best!
We booked a shore excursion for our short visit in the Algarve. Antonio B picked us up on time at the Portimão cruise terminal and then took us on a comfortable 6 hour trip, providing great commentary on the places we visited. This included the towns of Silves, Lagos & Sagres being the highlights in this area of southern Portugal. All in all a most enjoyable day with a nice and personable guide.

Antonio gives a fantastic tour beginning in Silves with a castle that is over 1000 years old to the adjacent cathdral both in the beautiful village of Silves. It's a wonderful tour full of history dating back thousands of years with archaeological digs you can see in the process. Then we were treated to a local vineyard and tasty wines grown in the region. The Algarve Region is beautiful, restful, and an absolute must in Portugal. Thanks Antonio!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Amy, Thanks for your kind words. Was a pleasure meet you and your group. We had a lovely morning in Silves and i'm realy happy that you enjoy the tour. All the best and see you soon!!

Antonio was wonderful. We had 5 people in our group and Antonio was very flexible in accommodating everyone's wish to see different things. He was very knowledgeable about the area as he grew up in this region and as such was able to show us some of the more "secret" scenic spots. We certainly will use him again for our next trip to the area.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Chris, Was really nice meet you and the group. Was a very good day with a awesome wheater in stunning places. I'll be waiting for you next time you visit the area. All the best.
Fabulous: Antonio personable, knowledgeable, English fluent, caring, excellent driver, fine van: clean, roomy, powerful and smooth. And not just Monchique and Silves. Great en-route stopovers: spa and its ancient vacation village, lush cross country side roads to the sea and spectacular cliffs. Timed perfectly to the 7 hours. Highly recommended and we'll do another next time.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Peter and Kai, Was really nice meet you. I'm very happy that you enjoy the tour. The places we visit are stunning. I'll be waiting for the next tour with you. Best Regards Antonio B.

Antonio gave us a great tour introducing us to the beautiful Algarve. He is very knowledgeable and provided us with many insights into the local culture and the natural environment as well. He was tireless in answering our many questions and was patient and supportive of my photographic endeavors. We especially appreciate his extra efforts to provide the right vehicle to accommodate my physical limitations, and he knew exactly where to provide us with wheelchair access and great photo opportunities.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Dick, Thanks for your kind words. I'm really happy that you enjoy the day. It was a pleasure to meet you. I hope you got good photos of the Algarve. I'm sure so, your photographic eye has captured the best of the places we visited. All the best for you and Mrs. Jane. Cheers Antonio B.
We had a great day with Antonio exploring the Algarve area. We saw so much and Antonio was a great person to spend time with. We felt like we were travelling with a friend-a very patient, accommodating and interesting one.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Shirley, Thank you for your kind words. Your family is very friendly and it was a pleasure to show you the best of the Algarve. I'm glad that besides being your guide, you've felt me like a friend because this is really my goal. Best Regards. Antonio B.
