This was an absolutely wonderful day with Vanda! We had the Best of the West Algarve experience and from the moment Banda met us, we became engaged in the Algarve Portuguese experience. Vanda is so personable, son knowledgeable, so passionate to share the Algarve and her love of Portugal. We learned so much, we experienced so much and we became a little bit Portuguese for the day! The day ended with the sunset at Cap of St Vincent Lighthouse… imagining Henry the Navigator setting sail to an unknown world! Just magical. Thank you Vanda for an excellent day! Thank you to the Get Your Guide team for wonderful organization and planning! We will definitely use Get Your Guide again!
