Me and my friends took this trip on our last day in albufeira and what a lovely way to end the holiday! Luis picked us up from our apartment and drove us round the coast of the Algarve stopping off at each destination for us to look around and take pictures, he even got some great shots of us kindly! we booked very last minute so we were very happy with how much he fitted in for us including booking the wine tasting at Jao Clara which was incredible, the lady had lots of information to share with us and the wine was lovely we even bought a few bottles. We asked Luis could we be dropped just at a restaurant instead of back at our apartment and he told us to just message when we were done and he will pick us up and drop us off, so kind! Luis was very funny and made our day very enjoyable, thanks so much Luis we had a great time! 10/10

António is a very likeable and open person who already scores points on the journey with his knowledge of the area and wine production. He also scores with a very personal speech! The wine tasting at the winery is very interesting and you learn a lot about the production/processing of the wines. The wines are all worth tasting. The end is a short stay in the town of Silves, here you are let out at the monastery on the mountain and can stroll down the path to the meeting point through the town. Afterwards you will be dropped off very relaxed at the place where you were picked up.

The Safari part was perfect, our guide was so attentive and good at his job! The wine part was nice too! The only thing that was bothering that we got transported home with another guy and he was driving very aggressively…

Knowledgeable driver made the experience very worthwhile. He was able to answer all questions and the quality of the food and wine was 1st class.

A lovely trip in a great location. Excellent wines. Remember your costume!
