We had an excellent morning walk with Paulo and Joel. Not only was the story and discovery interesting and informative, it was also a lot of fun. These two are funny and brilliant and make learning about the Algarve a delightful experience. Riding around in the 1974 VW van was a whimsical experience that brought back fond memories of my youth."
