Full description

Discover the regions of Moorish and Roman heritage on this full-day tour starting from Albufeira to Eastern Algarve. Visit Faro, the capital of the Algarve province. Go to Olhão, a key site for fishing, and explore the furthest Eastern town in the Algarve.

After being picked up from your accommodation, travel to your first destination, Faro, with its 13th century city center. Afterward, visit Olhão, where you can find the most famous market in the Algarve.

Move on to the city of Tavira to explore the castle and the various typical churches, and take a break for your lunch. Cross the Roman Bridge that leads to the Castle where you can experience one of the most breathtaking views over the city.

Enjoy the village of Cacela Velha with its famous whitewashed houses which is located in the area of the Ria Formosa Natural Park.

We just finished off our tour with Vanda exploring the east of Algarve. Vanda’s knowledge of the region, it’s history and all the unique nuggets of information was really useful. The highlights of the trip for us was Mercado at Olhao (coupled with a sumptuous traditional Portuguese lunch) and the sunset at Cacela Velha - breathtaking!
