Algarve: Landscapes, Pottery, and Winery Tour

1. Algarve: Landscapes, Pottery, and Winery Tour

Much of the charm of Algarve, Portugal, resides in its ability to provide top-class tourist facilities while retaining its own identity that’s easily visible in the traditional villages and activities of the area. Explore the region’s villages with a guide and stop at a pottery shop and winery. Visit Porches Pottery, home of original ceramic art. Learn how many of the traditional methods of pottery production are still used here today. See artisans making and painting pottery by hand. Then, visit the fishing village of Benagil that’s perched above the Atlantic. See the village’s tiny but picturesque beach and hear uninterrupted sounds of the Atlantic. Heading towards the resort of Carvoeiro, stop at Algar Seco where you can see mesmerizing caves and grottoes carved from the coastline over the centuries. Later, take a stroll through the village of Ferragudo along the cobbled streets and down to the small harbor. Before finishing the tour, stop at a winery and enjoy a tour and tasting of the wines produced in this region.

What people are saying about Porches

Superb morning with our guide. Just magnificent landscapes, breathtaking spots. A guide passionate about photography. You receive them by email the same day. They are superb. A tuk tuk tour that changes buses or taxis and much more pleasant to enjoy the good weather. I recommend this activity 100%. Is it worth it. You just need to be in good physical condition, a lot of stairs, small paths between the rocks. Alone, we would never have managed to find these wonders. Thank you again to our guide for making us discover Albufeira this way. In addition, he was doing very well in French, LUCK!

A really great tour, and a great way to see Albufeira. The driver is very friendly and we got an extra hour as he was so enthusiastic to show us the sights. He also took a lot of pictures on his camera and sent them to us, as we had only brought camera phones. One of the best tours we’ve been on!

Great tour, discovered some secluded beaches and caves that were absolutely stunning. Definitely recommend for those who want to avoid crowds at Benagil and want to go off the beaten path. Francisco and Pedro were both welcoming and friendly. I want to do it again!

I highly recommend, super guide Jorge, very attentive, made us discover unusual places of beauty, including caves from beaches overlooking the sea! We thank Jorge again for his kindness, taking pictures of us in unique places and sending them to us graciously

Great tour and beautiful sites! Jorge our guide was very knowledgeable and gave us time to explore all the sites. Highly recommend this tour!
