"Visiting the Algarve during the offseason does somewhat limit 'things to do' options, we were, therefore, delighted to discover Happy Van. As well as a quirky and enjoyable way to sample the flavours of the Algarve Paulo was a knowledgeable and humorous chap. We had a great time, our only regret being that we forgot to take a picture in front of the van at the end of the tour!"
"Sabores do Algarve ! Adorei e recomendo! Paulo foi ótimo no rápido retorno e proposta do roteiro de uma manhã, e João muitoooo gente boa... ele soube ler nossas vontades mudando um tiquinho o roteiro que ficou 110%! Me apresentou uma delicia de aguardente de medronho artesanal que eu tanto queria provar! Maria Rita fofaaaa demais, apesar do calor a solução criativa funciona!!! E me diverti muito durante o percurso! 😉 ah outro detalhe legal são as fotos que João tirou durante o passeio... finalmente temos algumas fotos do casal que não são selfies!"
"Happyness is guaranteed! Geweldige ervaring! Tijdens onze vakantie in Portagal hebben we met Happy Van de 'Trip to flavors' gedaan. Een geweldige, persoonlijke en gezellige tour waarin we het lokale leven in de Algarve mochten zien en proeven. Bedankt! Robert & Inge (Holland) "
