João picked us up close to our Airbnb. Then we drove round about 45 minutes to the first vineyard/museum. We were shown around and learned about the history of the company (7 generations) and how the vineyard is making wine. Afterwards we had a wine tasting with two wines. The second spot was a farm where we saw cork trees, tasted grapes from the bush and tried 5 local wines. The last stop was a village that acts as a storage for local producers. Here we tried another 5 wines and had a great goat cheese plate. You are not forced or animated at any stage of the trip to purchase the wine. It's your personal choice. João is a very talkative person. We learned a lot about wines from him, but also Portuguese olive oil, his personal story and wine-production efforts. He's a really great guy and we totally recommend the trip. The whole trip was covid19 regulations conform. A small tip - take some water with you because there was none offered with the wine tasting.
We had a wonderful time! We were able to spend some time with a beautiful bottlenose dolphin family. The skipper & the guide were very nice and professional and we felt like the well being of the wildlife is first priority!
This was a wonderful experience the cliffs are beautiful. The young lady who was the guide was incredible she made the entire trip excellent.
Apparently this is one of the lesser known tours and I will just say.....do not miss this tour! The scenes are breathtaking!
Such a great day with a friendly crew and a small group everyone had plenty of room for sinning and the views were amazing!
