Jorge was on time, full of character, able to answer questions, helped us take pictures, very safe driver, proud of his job. Took us to the castle in the mountains, where the sunset hit perfectly, took us to a farm where organic fruit was being grown and demonstrated to us. Impressed with Jorge knowing the key locations to stop and explain them in detail made the experience authentic.

Yesterday we had an amazing jeep tour with our driver/guide George. He told us a lot about the origins of the cork tree and many more. There was a lot to see and a lot to learn about this beautiful area. Although it was a little cold at the end of the day, it was all worth it, because George made it all spectacular! Thank you for making our holiday so special!

Great value 1/2 day activity, and you get to see another side of the Algarve away from the daily husstle and busstle. Our guide was excellent, and had a great knowledge of the history of the Algarve, would definately recommend.
