Booking and payment via the app was very easy. We also liked the memories of the tours. Our driver was Vasco, happy and in a good mood he entertained us very well the whole time. It never got boring. History, country and people and also the plants and animals ... not a subject he didn't know anything about. We had a lot of fun, saw and experienced a lot. Lunch was delicious too. And at some point the tour was unfortunately over again. Any time.

Ein super tolles Erlebnis und definitiv ein Muss wenn man an der Algarve Urlaub macht! Das Hinterland, abseits der touristischen Orte war wunderschön, aber auch die Westküste war ein Besuch wert. Das Mittagessen war sehr lecker und Vasco, unser Tourguide, war super freundlich, gut drauf und konnte uns einiges über die Algarve erzählen. Diese Tour würden wir zu 100% weiterempfehlen!

Very humorous guide who brought us closer to the culture, the country and the history of Portugal in an entertaining way. There were meat dishes typical of the mountain region, including wild boar and seasonal vegetables. The tour is definitely to be recommended! Thanks for the great organization!
