    The tour was awesome! The castle in Silves was beautiful and our guide António really gave us interesting information. The visit to the thermal springs in Monchique was a nice stop on the way to the top of the mountain. The guide is very well informed about the local flora and fauna. The winery was beautiful and the wine tasted very good after such a day. The transport in Antónios van is very comfortabele. He also tells about the surroundings and has a lot of knowledge about the places you're visiting. We enjoyed it so much that we booked another tour with him two days later. I can only recommend this tour and our guide!

  • Monchique and Fóia: Half Day Tour

    3. Monchique and Fóia: Half Day Tour

    A tour up the mountain to Monchique, rich with evergreen vegetation and allowing you to have fantastic views. Following hotel collection, you will be whisked up the mountain in an air-conditioned mini van. After navigating and exploring Monchique's small streets, you will continue on to Fóia, the highest point in the Algarve and one of the largest in Portugal. With 902 meters of height, you will be able to have a 360º view of the entire region, including he ocean, the lakes and other cities around.

    I highly recommend António, the guide, and this tour of Caldas de Monchique, of the little Monchique village and also the trip to Foia although it was a thoroughly foggy afternoon (which made for great cloud pictures!).

We were picked up from the hotel on time. Our driver, Miguel, spoke German fairly well. He drove us safely to the lookout points. The safari was very educational and well organized. Everything was very good and a lot of fun.

We had a fantastic day, Antonio was very helpful and informative. This trip allowed us to see areas we wouldn't normally be able to get to, it was thoroughly enjoyable from start to finish!

Antônio was competent, friendly and flexible;I very much enjoyed the tour.

A very nice trip with a nice and cool guide. Can just be recommended
