  1. Fantastic trip - recommended

    Our guide Ricardo was so knowledgeable and showed us the real Algarve (his Algarve) off the beaten track, with some wonderful views and real local food & produce on the way. We visited a castle, Pity Rock, and a wonderful local family and her farm, to name a few of the highlights. We crossed rivers in our robust Landrover and really had a lovely day out. Highly recommended for adventurous people of any age!

  2. Amazing experience and Miguel made our day!

    We went on the all day safari and our driver Miguel really made the day for us. We visited a few local sights and a castle, drove off road through the mountains, went firewater and honey tasting, had lunch and then visited a public fresh water pool. The lunch was 3 courses and unlimited wine and juice; if you wanted more food the restaurant where ready and waiting and we were able to get a second jug of white wine to go with the red with no problems at all and no additional cost. It was a great unique experience that was different to day trips we had done elsewhere and I could not recommend Miguel enough!!

  3. Great trip to see local Portugal

    Loved this day trip to see the countryside of Portugal! Saw a complete different side which was so refreshing! Ask for Miguel he was super funny and knowledgeable and interacted with both us and the kids! Loved every second
