"This was an exceptional tour with the passionate Paulo. I did the nature tour and within 4 hours, I saw such a different Algarve than anticipated. The tour was punctuated with interesting history, local knowledge. The van was such a cool vehicle to travel in. The concept is unique, the company has a great ethos and the experience much treasured! I would definitely recommend this to anyone and at any age. Thank you for a great time!"
"Fantastic Places. I visited fabulous places, including sites that I did not even imagine existed in the Algarve, despite knowing the region for years. I really enjoyed the algares and the various beaches. To repeat. "
"Beach tour. Yesterday we had a huge beautiful tour with happy van. As a huge VW fan, driving in a VW was already a dream come true. With a very appropriate music we had an incredible beautiful day at the two most beautiful beaches of the algarve. Our guide has made many photos on the way and later sent via the mail. Compliments for the guide and for Happy Van. This is highly recommended!"
