Charming whitewashed houses, a Medieval castle and a lively traditional market: discover the beautiful historic towns of the Algarve on this guided tour from Albufeira.
Inland Algarve Tour from Albufeira
On the day of your tour, you'll be picked up from Albufeira at 8:30 am, ready to begin exploring the inland towns of the Algarve.
After half an hour's drive, you'll arrive in Loulé, a typical whitewashed Algarve town. Stroll through the winding cobblestone streets of its historic centre, reaching one of its most visited place of interest: the market. Outside, you'll be captivated by the pink façade that resembles an Arab palace more than a market, and inside you'll be drawn into the hustle and bustle of locals shopping for fresh produce and traditional regional handicrafts.
Delve into the history of the Algarve on the next stop on your tour, as you discover one of the oldest trades in the area on a guided visit of a cork factory.
You'll then head back on the road for the 20-minute drive to your next destination: São Brás de Alportel. Arriving in this enchanting village, you'll have free time to explore its picturesque streets at your own pace and to indulge in a delicious lunch of typical delicacies.
With your hunger sated, you'll meet back up for the 40-minute journey to Alte, widely considered the Algarve's prettiest village. You'll soon see why as you wander past the whitewashed houses and admire the sparkling river that courses through the streets.
Having spent half an hour exploring Alte, you'll make the short drive to Salir, a village renowned for its perfect fusion of nature and tradition. Finally, at the end of your full day of sightseeing, you'll return to Albufeira where you'll be dropped back off at your hotel at around 6:30 pm.
