May 2023

Well what a fun night. Booked for Loulé food tour but everything on the evening we booked was closed due to a local event. We got changed to Portimão and weren’t disappointed. Paulo was an excellent tour guide full of interesting facts. The food we experienced was extremely tasty. The evening was rounded off with super tasty port and yummy cake before being escorted back to our car in a vintage VW van. A really enjoyable time and would highly recommend this company Happy Van. Looking forward to next year already!

Paulo has so much knowledge about wine and all the surroundings. The pickup with the van was easy and perfect coordinatet! When we will come back, we‘ll definitly will book another Tour with him!

May 2023

The whole trip was brilliant. The hosts, Paulo and Gorete were friendly and really interesting to chat with. Nothing was too much trouble, even adapting things to suit us. We came away with loads of interesting information about the area. The trip is so well thought out, even down to preparing a special pack lunch for us. If you are in the area definitely check out Happy Vans, we found it a great experience.

Paolo is “the man” with “the van”. From first introduction, we knew we were going to enjoy our wine excursion with Paolo. He is an excellent tour guide with a lot of knowledge and a passion for his country, which offers a very personal insight into the history and culture of the Algarve. I would highly recommend any tour with Paolo as your guide. We learned so much about the Odelouca River Valley and the making of wine varietals and blends at the Quinta do Francês vineyards. Thank you Fatima for an informative wine tasting, and thank you Paolo for a most enjoyable excursion.
Sincerely, Laura & Mark

October 2022

This was a very unique tour that I would highly recommend. Paulo and his partner were excellent hosts - she the driver of the Happy Van and hostess for our picnic lunch and he the enthusiastic tour guide. Paulo tailored our tour to Loule as we had requested. He was very prompt in picking us up and gave us a very good history of the Algarve region as we drove to our first stop - the Chapel of Nossa Senhora da Conceição. It beautiful place where Paulo shared its rich history. Next - to the Market where he was very patient with us as we wanted to taste things, buy from the vendors and chat as well. He moved us along to a lovely outdoor picnic in a nearby park. Then on to a winery for our tasting. The winery was lovely and we made several purchases. Our day ended with a very fun ride home and very grateful for a special day with the people who made our van so happy!

October 2022

One of the most surreal experiences of my life. Paulo and his wife are some of the nicest people I've ever met and could not do enough for the both of us. I contacted them to arrange a proposal which was ruined as the weather was against us but at a moments notice Paulo came up with a plan B and made mine and tayla's experience one to remember!! Tayla said yes by the way

September 2022

I would highly recommend this charming tour ran by Happy Vans. Paulo was incredibly friendly and knowledgeable making this your a feel light from start to finish. The vw camper van pick-up made this a very different kind of tour. Paulo himself relaxed you very quickly and makes you feel a part of the rest of the tour group.

The size of these your groups are very small (limited to the size of the passengers in the van) which only makes this tour feel even more personable. The range of wines produced by the vineyard were exceptional and we couldn't resist purchasing a few bottles to take home (at a very affordable price). The vineyard was very beautiful and it was great to be able to tour the site and see a lot of the area which other vineyards would likely not show you.

We will definitely be using Paulo's tours again on our next visit to the Algarve. Thank you for an amazing time.
