  • Monchique and Fóia: Half Day Tour

    1. Monchique and Fóia: Half Day Tour

    A tour up the mountain to Monchique, rich with evergreen vegetation and allowing you to have fantastic views. Following hotel collection, you will be whisked up the mountain in an air-conditioned mini van. After navigating and exploring Monchique's small streets, you will continue on to Fóia, the highest point in the Algarve and one of the largest in Portugal. With 902 meters of height, you will be able to have a 360º view of the entire region, including he ocean, the lakes and other cities around.

    I highly recommend António, the guide, and this tour of Caldas de Monchique, of the little Monchique village and also the trip to Foia although it was a thoroughly foggy afternoon (which made for great cloud pictures!).

What people are saying about Monchique

António, our guide/driver, is very knowledgable and an enthusiastic guide. At only €39pp this is a spectacular tour, but weather dependent. We were lucky and got spectacular views from Foía as well of Monchique and the spa resort of Castal del Monchique. Most enjoyable!

A great tour with a super nice guide. An exciting insight into the Algarve landscape away from the well-known beaches and the coastal area.

Very nice, relaxing tour. Our guide Antonio was perfect. I can really recommend it.

Antônio was competent, friendly and flexible;I very much enjoyed the tour.
