If there is one tour you should do while on holiday, this is that tour! It is an all day tour which will cost you about 32 euros each, but it is a very long tour lasting from about 8 in the morning until 7 at night! You visit Silves (The old Moorish Capital) Castle and Cathedral. You climb the Monique Mountains to Foia which is the highest point in the Algarve. I would suggest wearing a pair of trainers or similar as the actual peak of the mountain is about a 3 meter scramble. I did manage it in my thonged foam flip flops, but it was a challenge...
You then make your way down the mountain to a restaurant which they offer you to stop at for a meal. It will cost about 13 euros, but this includes an all you can eat starter, main course and dessert. It also includes plentiful wine, a coffee at the end and a shot of either fire water or almond liquor. We did bring a packed lunch, but decided to take advantage of the meal as it was such good value.
After the meal you will then make towards Lagos (fort and old town including Saint Anthonys Golden Church) before heading to Cape St Vincent (also known as the End Of The world).
You will need to pay for entries into the different churches and castles. It is not much, maybe a couple of euros each per attraction, but it does add up a little.
There are toilet facilities at the castle in Silves whoich are located behinf the café (you do not need to purchase anything). You have to pay 50 cents for the ones in Cape St Vincent.
I probably wouldn't do this tour again, as I have already done it, but I would definitely recommend it if you haven't hired a car to do the tour yourself.
