Embrace the Algarve

Book your tour and travel with ‘Happy Van’. Experience the rich heritage of the Algarve, travelling in our Vintage VW vans. Our guides are Portuguese (English speaking too!), super fun and friendly. There’s no better way to learn about the region other than from the natives. Book your adventure today!


Our programs are planned with careful detail, so that you feel safe and secure wherever we go


Our vehicles are named Mary. They are Vintage VW vans with a maximum capacity of 7 passengers. Comfortable seats and customised ambient lighting all add a happy ‘feel good’ atmosphere to make sure you enjoy your adventure.


We strive to excel in our service, quality and innovation. In order to achieve this, we are 100% committed to customer satisfaction at all times.


Our esteemed employees are trained in several areas. This includes the maintenance of the vehicles and the animation of the tours. In order for us to give the best of ourselves to our customers, we are considered as ‘friends’ and not just drivers and guides. It’s rather like going on a family trip.

A Unique Experience

We hope that you will reflect on our tours as, simple, unique, and enriching. After all, it is only worth travelling, if we return enlightened! Our greatest achievement will be to recognise, even for a single moment, that you were happy in our company.


Our experiences only make sense if we create social, economic and environmental impact. We do our best to protect our local heritage, history, culture, uses, customs and traditions, people, indigenous products and the environment. Help us to improve. Grow with us in community! Thanks
