Full description

Join a full-day tour to some of the most interesting and scenic locations in the Algarve. Explore the old town in Silves, climb Mount Foia, step back in time at Lagos, and visit Cape St. Vicente, the most southwestern point in Europe.

Your first stop is Silves, the former Moorish capital. Visit the oldest part of the city where both the largest castle in the Algarve and the oldest cathedral are located. 

Next, head to Mount Foia and take in the views. Climb the Serra de Monchique and make your way to the highest point of the Algarve. Take some spectacular photos and, on your way down, make an optional stop for lunch (cost not included). 

In the afternoon, visit Lagos and discover the former slave market dating back to the 16th century. See the golden church of Santo António, the fortress, and the old town.

Continue toward Cape St. Vicente, the most southwestern point of Europe. See landmarks including the lighthouse, the fishing port of Baleeira, and the fortress of Sagres.

Great spots during this tour, with friendly and accommodating staff. This is a great your of you want to hit the whole West, just don't expect to stop everywhere in between. My only problem is that they say pickup from hotel, but they called me back and told me to make my way to a hotel that was 32 minutes away because they were picking someone else there That was not the best experience from a tour that includes pickup.

the excursion itself was nice, you saw a lot of places and enough time to look quietly, but you are on the bus with too many people from different countries. and that in itself is not bad, but the guide was telling everything in 3 different languages and that went on from 10 am to 5 pm. you're not taking in any more information it was too much.

Currently not recommended. Hotel pickup but very long transfer times. Very large tour group with over 50 people. Only one guide, which is insufficient for on-site tours. In addition, the tour was conducted in three languages, leaving little time for details. Phases of a coffee trip (alcohol tasting, ...).
