Your Guided Group Holiday to the Algarve

Escape to the Algarve and let us take care of the Christmas preparations. Known for its year round mild climate and beautiful scenery, the Algarve is the perfect place to relax and unwind. Stretching across the southernmost tip of mainland Portugal, the Algarve is famous for its fantastic beaches, dramatic landscape and quaint villages. We'll visit historic whitewashed towns and fishing ports on three great excursions, discover the local traditions and enjoy the laid-back lifestyle.  A visit to the most western point of Europe, known as ‘the Edge of the World’ is a highlight for many of our customers. We'll also enjoy an excursion to Seville, the stunning capital of Andalucía. This trip also includes plenty of leisure time to visit the abundance of great beaches, bars, shops, restaurants and local markets near your resort, with personalised recommendations from our local guide.

Please Note: Some excursions on this holiday will involve walking on hilly terrain and uneven surfaces.
