Great couple of hours seeing Faro with a local. Highly recommended. The wine tasting was fantastic. 'About wines' is a great spot. Learned so much and the tasting was unbelievable. Totally worth touring with Al if you're in Faro.

Excellent tour guide. Knew so much about history, Faro, Algarve, Portugal. So many details here and there. Travelling alone with kids can make you feel vulnerable, Ernesto made us feel very comfortable and accommodated all our requests. Definitely recommend

Hi Kay Y, How did you book the tour with Ernesto? I want to take the historic Faro city tour too and maybe combine it with a wine tasting visit to a vineyard. Thank you.
