"This is such a remarkable experience and I cannot recommend this enough. Paulo was an excellent guide with lots of local knowledge and history. The places he took the tour was breath taking and often off the beaten track. I have no hesitation to recommend this for anyone and any age. If I had more time, I would have loved to experience the other tours this company has to offer! You will be guaranteed an experience that will enrich your body, mind and soul!"
We’ve had a fantastic day with Paolo in the VW, we went to the Quinta Do Frances vineyard, Paolo was a great tour guide, very friendly and absolutely loved his vintage VW
We booked a wine tasting tour with Paulo in his lovely vintage van. He's really friendly, knowledgeable and went out of his way to make sure we had the perfect experience. Will definitely book another tour with him next time we visit the Algarve! Highly recommend!"
