We were transferred from Faro by a taxi to a larger coach which was quite a distance but very efficient. We then visited the medieval town of Silves which was very pretty and had time to look around. Christine our guide was excellent explaining things we saw. The next stop was at the top a mountain on a good day the views would be spectacular but it was shrouded by clouds and pouring so a little disappointing. We were offered a local drink there and a touristy shop. Then we went back down to the winery brilliant explanation of wine process and the difference between wines . We had a taster glass of rose , white, then red . Look about the gardens really lovely end to the trip . .

Fantastic day exploring the beautiful countryside of the Algarve. Our guide was Domenica and driver was Paulino and both could not have been more accommodating and ensured the day ran smoothly. Very professional and well-run tour. Definitely one of the highlights of our holiday and would strongly recommend to any other tourists - also very reasonable at £40 per head for a full day’s tour.

A really well organised day excursion. Ana, our guide was excellent with great knowledge of the area. She organised a lovely lunch at a local restaurant. The winery was delightful again with a very knowledge young man conducting the tour and tastings. Overall a fab day and excellent value.

Really enjoyable day. Learned a lot about the algarve. Danielle was a very knowledgeable guide

Interesting tour and the guide was very informative!
