Hello, my name is António and I am from Lagos, in the Algarve.

Here in the south of Portugal we have fantastic beaches and sunshine almost every day, so it is a fantastic place to start discovering the best we have here.

In addition to the beaches, the Algarve is a region full of history and traditions, something that fascinates me particularly. As a Tour Guide I like to make relaxing and unhurried trips, where we can appreciate what surrounds us. I try to show the most authentic ones here - the small typical villages, the regional products, the gastronomy and the Algarve wine.

Nature is something that fascinates me too. I am a fisherman in my free time, which led me to visit some fantastic places in the region, where the cliffs and the sea are impressive.
In my tours I'll be in my own minivan, very comfortable with air conditioning.

Antonio is incredibly knowledgeable and accommodating. I loved the visit to Silves and the Spring. It was incredible to see both the southern and western coast of Portugal from the top of the mountain. Had a blast!
