Know More about this tour

On this tour, you will travel to the eastern part of the Algarve region: from Castro Marim to Faro it's a wonderful journey where you decide how to end it, either with a boat trip along the coast and the Ria Formosa or instead a walking tour around the rich heritage inside medieval walls of the Algarve's capital.
Climb aboard a brand new and comfortable minivan and let yourself be carried away by the relaxed pace as you listen to the explanations of your Cool Guide! The first stop is Castro Marim, a quaint little village with a majestic castle strategically located. Like all the region of the Algarve, Castro Marim has records of occupation since the Bronze Age, with the presence of Phoenicians, Romans and Moors, until the Christian Reconquista. The castle has undergone several restorations throughout the centuries, and today houses an Archaeological Museum that definitely deserves a visit.

Then we leave for Vila Real de Santo Antnio, a city that stares Spain in the eyes. It has always been an important point of passage and commercial center. Stroll through the city center and observe the important architectural heritage, whose construction oversight was led by the Marquis of Pombal.

Our next stop is 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 Gilo. Indulge in Mediterranean charm before the lunch in Santa Luzia, just a few minutes away from Tavira.

After lunch, we continue our journey to Olho, one of the most emblematic cities in the Algarve. All the town literally breathes sea: the golden sandy beaches, high quality fish and shellfish coming from the largest fishing port in the region or the Municipal Markets that we will also visit.

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 a Bones Chapel. 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. It is an authentic ecological treasure, protected as a Natural Park, a safe haven for hundreds of birds and other species. Whatever your choice may be, this unforgettable tour will always end with a flourish
