Full description

Visit the old Moorish capital of the Algarve, the city of Silves, with its picturesque Castle. Stop to visit the small village of Caldas de Monchique with its famous spa, recognized since Roman times for its healing properties. Arrive at Foia, the highest point of the Algarve, with its 902m altitude and with a breathtaking view, and taste the typical liqueurs of the region while admiring the landscape. Make a stop for lunch at a typical restaurant in the Serra de Monchique, where a traditional Algarve meal will be served.

Visit Lagos, a city that has always been linked to the sea, where the epic of the Portuguese Discoveries began in the 15th century. Travel to the most "Southwest point in Europe", after leaving Lagos, and make a stop at Ponta da Piedade, known for its rock formations and panoramic views.

Finish the tour in Sagres, also known as the "End of the World", where the sun goes down behind the endless ocean, and observe the most amazing and breathing sunset from the top of cliffs.

This was an absolutely wonderful day with Vanda! We had the Best of the West Algarve experience and from the moment Banda met us, we became engaged in the Algarve Portuguese experience. Vanda is so personable, son knowledgeable, so passionate to share the Algarve and her love of Portugal. We learned so much, we experienced so much and we became a little bit Portuguese for the day! The day ended with the sunset at Cap of St Vincent Lighthouse… imagining Henry the Navigator setting sail to an unknown world! Just magical. Thank you Vanda for an excellent day! Thank you to the Get Your Guide team for wonderful organization and planning! We will definitely use Get Your Guide again!

Nous avons adoré notre journée découverte avec Vanda. En plus d'être extrêmement professionnelle, attentionnée et patiente, elle connaît sur le boit des doigts la riche histoire du Portugal. Chaque endroit visité est ainsi présenté avec des faits et anecdotes historiques. Une journée bien remplie que nous garderons en mémoire. Merci Vanda pour cette magnifique journée !
