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.

Excellent activity. Super nice mix between visit, knowledge of the two cities, history and mastery of the seg way. An activity that combines accessibility, visit, exchange with the other members of the group and very good guides. We did this outing twice so much we liked it. We also did the Ria Formosa one in a wildlife sanctuary. Definitely worth doing (Faro).

Very nice tour. Best driver/guide. Was very fun. The wine tasting is very extensive. You take your time with the guests. For the price an absolutely recommendable event.

The guide is just fantastic. Very funny and very knowledgable. The tour is beautiful and the ride is a lot of fun. Booked a second trip directly within a week.

Absolutely brilliant! Great way to travel and see the sights! Will deffinatley be recommending to friends and segway-ing in the future!
