Your Local Host:

Pedro Urgel

Born and raised in the delightful city of Porto, apart from a two year stint living in Scotland in my younger days, I have lived in Portugal all my life. When I was around 35, myself and a couple of my travelling friends (one of which is my brother), decided to set up our company. We set out scouting Portugal, visiting the places no one visits, meeting people, exploring landscapes discovering all these authentic towns. We know the country like the back of our hands, so when you go on one of our experiences you get an experts insight and learn so much more than you would visiting alone.

Location Information

You’ll meet at Faro Market, a famous food market in the Algarve.

Faro, the capital of the Algarve, is called the ‘gateway to the Algarve’. It is a beautiful and historic city with many impressive buildings and monuments, such as the neoclassical ‘Arco da Vila’, on the site of a gate that was once part of the original Moorish city walls. The monumental archway leads to the old town, with its traditional cobbled streets, a beautiful site to visit in the Algarve.
