        Great experience
        Fabio was a wonderful host. Everything was so well organised, from hotel pick up, 3 winery visits with lunch. My first time to get a good understanding of viticulture and wine tasting. Another couple joined us and we had a very enjoyable day. Great way to spend a day in Portimoa.

        A day to remember in Algarve's wineyards
        This magical experience is perfect for having fun and acquiring new knowledge about wine. The different vineyards visited were very beautiful. The visit is exclusively made up of small vineyards with a charming and authentic character. We also loved the concept of the Farmer's Table. The lunch was friendly and tasteful, and the atmosphere was full of life. Throughout our day, our guide Fábio was caring and very interesting! We recommend to every Algarve's traveler who enjoy wine and good company.

        Best wine tour in Portugal!
        Me and group of 7 others did a wine tour with Fábio in Portugal, it was fantastic! They came and collected us from where we were staying in the Algarve and took us to a beautiful winery. We had a tour around the place and got to sit and try lots of different wines and hear tasting notes on each one. The location was really quite beautiful! If you're in the area you have to book and go with Fábio he is incredibly passionate about the wines and will teach you a lot! Will definitely come back again next time we are in the area, thank you :)

        Beautiful Day in Alentejo
        A fabulous way to see the beautiful hillsides of Alentejo, while learning about the local history, wineries, and their farming practices. We learned so much about the growing process, the types of grapes, and the opportunity to see the production process. Fabio is a treasure trove of the local stories and made for a wonderful day. This tour allowed us to interact with the local people, enjoy delicious food, and offer a special experience.

        Absolutely fantastic
        What a great day it was with Fabio taking us to a couple of great local vinyards. His knowledge of the grape growing and wine making processes was second to none. Fabio is really friendly and was prepared to wait until we were ready to move on saying ‘it’s your tour and your day’. Class from start to finish and dropped us off in Alvor town to continue our adventure. Definitely a holiday highlight.

        Top wine tour!
        Fabio put together such a fabulous private wine tour for my husband and I that we decided to do a repeat of the whole experience when friends from Australia came to visit. Fabio organised the upgrade to include an amazing meal on the terrace at Herdade dos Grous, and we also enjoyed a return visit to the amazing Herdade da Malhadinha. Fabio is a great person to lead the tour as he has great local knowledge and he is also as keen as his guests to enjoy the experience and to learn from local producers. Highly recommended and we will be back again for yet another wine tour experience!

        Memorable time in Algarve wine country
        I am back in Vancouver Canada now and just want to thank Fabio so much for the wine tour that he gave during my stay in Portimao. He picked me up near my hotel (where he also dropped me off) and provided an excellent experience. His vast knowledge of the entire process of producing wine was shared and appreciated, as was his knowledge of the wine country in the Algarve that we toured (myself and a couple from the UK). The lunch venue and meal at one of the wineries were excellent. We sat at a long farm table outside which we shared with other wine tour participants. Each delicious dish that came from the kitchen and was passed around the table was described by the winery's host. The wines there and at the other wineries were all great. Again, thank you so much Fabio, the tour is a highlight of my Algarve experience.

        One of our favorite days in Portugal.
        We had a wonderful experience, it was one of our favorite parts of our trip to Portugal! Fabio, our tour guide, picked us up and returned us to our condo after the tour, and he was incredible He was very friendly and knowledgeable, not only about the wine but the area we were visiting. We loved the fact that it was just the 4 of us in our group with him. The wines at each winery were very enjoyable, the lunch spot was incredible and the food fantastic. Thank you for the wonderful day!

        Fabio was very accommodating with timings and for a very modest extra charge collected us from our hotel in Vilamoura.
        A great excusrsion, I would highly recommend to anyone visiting the Algarve. A visit to a small producer and then a visit to a larger commercial vineyard. Then a beautiful lunch in Silves. Fabio is an excellent guide, he has great knowledge of the area and the viticulture in the region.

        Awesome Wine Tour
        Fantastic tour, Fabio was a great host and kindly arranged a 2nd bus to accommodate my large family! He also went above and beyond to provide a kids seat for my 2 year old . He fell asleep between a couple of the wineries and one of the drivers stayed with him whilst we had a tasting, thoroughly enjoyable experience!

        Absolutely wonderful experience. Not only was it informative, it was great fun! Beautiful wines, with excellent explanations about the entire process from grape selections, growing and harvesting the vines and of course the magic of making the wines. Highly recommended.

      Fabio is a true gem and expert on all things wine! Our bachelorette group of 10 enjoyed ourselves immensely and had a fantastic time learning about the 2 wineries and enjoying the wine along the way. The meal at the end was SO delicious and Fabio made us all feel very welcomed and safe. Would highly recommend for a group of any size - you wont regret it!

      Wow! What a great surprise! Scheduled this tour kinda last minute, and wasn't sure what to expect! Fabio, picked us up at our hotel and was engaging from minute one. He took us to two vineyards, a toour in the vines, along with cellars and, of course, tastings under a covered portico. Met the owners of the second winery, then traveled to the mountain top lunch, were he made an excellent suggestion of the "black pork". Fantastic! As was the tour. Give Fabio and Algarve Wine Tours a call. You won't be disappointed! Abragado, Fabio!

      The day started with Fabio picking us up at our house in Farragudo. He then took us to a couple of great local vineyards. His knowledge of grape growing and the wine making process with all its complexities was outstanding. He thoroughly answered all our questions. The views from Monchique and Foia were beautiful and the lunch and views at Luar were amazing. We were also happy to learn about cork trees and the process of harvesting the bark. A great day that exceeded our expectations. Thanks, Fabio!

      Lunch was definitely a highlight, the view from o luar da foia was great. The food portions are insane, I think one portion would be fine for two people, especially with a starter. The food itself was delicious though. Fabio was a fantastic guide throughout the trip, he’s obviously a knowledgeable guy when it comes to wine. He’s also very personable and accommodating which helps the tour run smoothly. The wine tasting was really interesting, I feel like I’ve come away with a better understanding of how the different flavours and textures in wine are produced. Definitely would recommend.

      Outstanding tour, Fabio is an excellent guide with a deep knowledge of wine and wine making. He covered the process from care of the grapevines to bottling, aging and enjoying. We visited 2 small family owned wineries, sampling 3 excellent wines at each. This was followed by a superb lunch at Restaurant “Paraíso da Montanha” with a beautiful view of the coast from the patio. Finally we travelled to the highest point of the Monchique mountains to take in the view. Definitely a highlight of our trip to Portugal.

      Thank you Fabio for such a great day. The day was exactly what we were looking for, we enjoyed the vineyard visits and your explanations on how the winery’s operated and especially the wine tastings.
      The day was topped off we a wonderful traditional dinner in the mountains with surrounding views. The whole trip was perfect, we will hopefully one day do it all again. 🥰

      We had the most wonderful time on this wine tour while visiting the Algarve and it was made to be so magical because of Fabio. He was an incredibly knowledgeable guide on the wine in the region and its history, and had great connections with local winemakers. We learned a lot visiting two wineries and had excellent service - from pickup to drop-off and the journey between. Additionally, the meal we had at the end was delicious and had beautiful views. I cannot recommend this tour enough!

      I recently enjoyed a phenomenal wine tour in the Algarves that surpassed all expectations. Fabio's expertise and passion made the vineyard visits truly memorable, offering a diverse selection of wines with insightful commentary. The behind-the-scenes experience at a local winery added a personal touch. The grand finale—a delicious lunch atop a mountain with breathtaking views—capped off a perfect day of education, exploration, and indulgence. Highly recommend this unforgettable experience!
