Description

Discover the picturesque southern region of Portugal and its ancient cities full of cultural heritage. Explore mountainous villages dotted with white houses and cobbled streets, and admire the view of flower-covered hillsides from the highest point in the Algarve.

The charming town of Silves welcomes visitors with a fruity scent of orange and lemon trees. The history of this place is displayed in every monument, church and ruin.

Listen to your guide describe the town's Moorish legacy as you pass by the Castle of Silves, one of the best-preserved castles in the Algarve. Admire the towers and the historic alcáçova, the lord's residency in the city. See one of the few remaining gothic monuments at the Silves Cathedral and gaze at the impressive 10-foot-high (3-m) limestone cross.

Leaving Silves behind, your next stop is the breathtaking vantage from the peak of Mount Fóia, the Algarve's highest point. This is the perfect opportunity to snap a memorable picture of the impressive landscape displayed in front of you.

The last stop is the market town of Monchique, located on the Algarve's mountainous side. Stroll the charming cobbled streets and admire the unique style of the houses in this area—a big contrast to the coastal style, with white walls and colorful windows and doors, and the saia (skirt chimney)—their most characteristic feature.

Tour was excellent but there was nearly one half hour wait a short distance from Silves tfor passengers from another bus to join ours. This was not good enough and there was not even an apology from the guide. The guide also did not have 'passenger' skills.

We notice that you did not request a review of the Best of the East: Faro, Olhao & Tavira tour.. perhaps of too many complaints received? Our guide was not what one would expect... in Faro she dumped us in an area either to shopping or on our own to explore not knowing what we were exploring. A guide should be with the passengers, explaining the sights! She told us to be back at MacDonalds (bus) in a couple of hours .. then left to do some shopping herself. We could have taken local transport and done this ourselves. Very disappointing. Many passengers were quite upset with this.
