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 fun day out exploring Algarve. Our guide George was very knowledgeable and friendly, we had a chance to taste and buy some of the local products. There was plenty of opportunities to take nice pictures, George was giving us a lot of information about local history and culture. He is also a great driver and a photographer. At the end of the trip we have seen a beautiful sunset on top of the mountain. Highly recommend! Daniel&Ania :)
