What to expect

On this tour, you will travel to the eastern part of the Algarve region. Do like the locals and pay a morning visit to the Olhão Market, where you’ll get to know the biggest fishing community in the Algarve and the fresh products sold here (fruits and regional products, meat, etc.).

Then get ready to head to the small town of Tavira, one of the most beautiful and picturesque in the whole Algarve. Its entire historical center and typical houses form an absolutely charming picture, not to mention the castle or the iconic Roman bridge that connects the two banks of the river Gilão. Indulge in Mediterranean charm before the lunch in Santa Luzia, just a few minutes away from Tavira.

The last stop is Faro, the capital of the Algarve. Here you can choose between a walking tour or a boat trip. The walking tour explores the historic city center, particularly inside the medieval walls where lies numerous museums, churches and the grand Faro Cathedral. For those who take the boat trip, you will not be disappointed as well: 1-hour ride to the Ria Formosa, a system of barrier islands that communicates with the sea through six inlets.
