Sample the gastronomical delights of the region at a local farm, and taste their honey and homemade liquors. Go to an old distillery to try some of the legendary Medronho (Aguardente de Medronhos).

We had a fantastic family day out! 10 in total! The tour was perfect, we were taken to see the countryside of the Algarve, sights and villages seen were stunning! It was fun and the tour guides very knowledgeable! We all agree it was fantastic value and truly a fabulous time on the half day tour!

Marco is a great guide, making sure everyone was laughing the whole time! We were shown all of the local plants and herbs and met some of the local animals too along our drive! The firewater tasting was a great break and Marco made sure we got to see all the perfect picture points! We met some thunder and rain halfway but that didn't stop the fun!

Really lovely experience to see the quite side of Albufeira, brought up into the mountains with some amazing views, our guide showed us all the the different types of trees grown there (olive, almond, avocado) and gave us some interesting facts along the way, beautiful ending at the peak with a swing chair which was lovely for pictures and our guide was so friends and really informative, you could tell he loves his job.
