What people are saying about Vilamoura

We were the only people on this fantastic tour, so it was more or less private. Paulo of happyvan.pt showed us the historic center of Loulé, while telling all kinds of stories about its history from centuries ago till very recent. He knows this place very well. He is very attentive in picking up what you find interesting and what can be mentioned but does not need elaboration. And it’s not only history he knows about, he also told us about culture and typical Portuguese beliefs and habits, which make the stories come alive more. His English is very good, so no trouble understanding each other. Paulo is a very pleasant person to talk to, it felt like a walk and meal with an friend. The food we tasted in 3 different places (5 courses in total) was typical Portuguese, but not all tradition. Some parts were with a modern twist. We ended the evening with a tasting of amêndoa amarga, which is great also. Even though we did some walking, we felt quite full after all this.

I couldn’t recommend this private tour to Seville enough! Vanda picked us up from our hotel early in the morning and took us straight to Seville and gave us some background on the history of Seville along with some information on the best places to go visit in terms of food/shopping and culture. Vanda was so nice and flexible with us and accompanied us at the first stop and showed us where to go, she then let us proceed to tour around ourselves before pickup time which was nice to have our own freedom to explore the city. Vanda was extremely helpful and kind and I could not recommend this tour enough!

Fantastic day exploring the beautiful countryside of the Algarve. Our guide was Domenica and driver was Paulino and both could not have been more accommodating and ensured the day ran smoothly. Very professional and well-run tour. Definitely one of the highlights of our holiday and would strongly recommend to any other tourists - also very reasonable at £40 per head for a full day’s tour.

A really well organised day excursion. Ana, our guide was excellent with great knowledge of the area. She organised a lovely lunch at a local restaurant. The winery was delightful again with a very knowledge young man conducting the tour and tastings. Overall a fab day and excellent value.

Excellent trip to Seville. Our guide was Exceptionally helpful and pleasant and pointed us in the direction of all the key places of interest. Well worth a visit.
