Itinerary

Day One

Fly to Faro, meet your Tour Manager and transfer to Albufeira and your hotel. Settle in and enjoy your first evening, perhaps heading into town before dinner.

Day Two

Enjoy the facilities of your hotel, today, or perhaps head into nearby Albufeira. Wander the narrow streets of the Moorish Old Town, take a seat in a cafe in the main square, or hunt out bargains in the great selection of shops. Close by, several wonderful beaches offer an alternative to the hotel pool.

Day Three

Standing on the River Tagus, Lisbon is a joy. Stroll through the narrow streets of the Alfama district and up its steep stairways to the Castelo de Sao Jorge - and don't miss the ornate Manueline architecture of the Belem quarter, or the wide tree-lined avenues, cafes and restaurants of the Baxia.

Day Four

Today's full-day optional excursion takes us into the Algarve's wooded interior. We'll stop in Silves - the old Moorish capital - before continuing east, through the stunning mountain scenery of Monchique, to Foia the region's highest point. The varied countryside and stunning views make for a thoroughly enjoyable day out.

Day Five

On today's included excursion we'll cross into Spain and head to Seville. See the 300ft Giralda Tower and the 'tomb' of Christopher Columbus at the magnificent cathedral. Visit Plaza de Toros, Spain's oldest bullring. Stroll through the courtyards of the Moorish Alcazar to the Jewish Quarter, and stop in Plaza de Espana to soak up the atmosphere of this gorgeous city of great buildings, grand boulevards and tree-lined squares.

Day Six

Relax at your hotel, today, or join our optional excursion to maritime Lagos - with its walled fortifications, 'golden church' and stunning coastal views - historic Sagres and the wild promontory of Cape St Vincent, which looks across the Atlantic Ocean at Europe's most south-westerly point.

Day Seven

Our final optional excursion heads east, to Olhao. Stroll the Moorish central quarter, seafront promenade and bustling fish market here before we continue to Tavira.

After time to visit Tavria's castle and Roman bridge, we'll head to the Algarve capital, Faro. Discover the cobbled streets and hidden squares of Faro's fascinating old town, and its colourful marina, before we return to our hotel in the evening.

Day Eight

Return to the airport, and check in for your flight home.

Combining hotel transfers

We sometimes need to combine transfers to and from your hotel. We always try to keep any wait to a minimum, but you may be asked to wait at the airport for up to an hour, while other incoming flights arrive, before the transfer to your hotel. Similarly, we may need to transfer you back to the airport up to three hours before your flight home departs.

If you have notified us of any special requirements, please check that they have been noted and acknowledged. This is especially important with any dietary needs you may have.

Disabled access

The majority of our tours involve a certain amount of walking, including a short walk from the coach stop to the town, attraction or venue you're visiting. If you are bringing a wheelchair, please let us know at the time of booking so that appropriate arrangements can be made.

Itinerary changes

Occasionally, for operational reasons, we may have to change the order of the excursions on your holiday. The final day-by-day itinerary will be confirmed on your Final Travel Documents, which you will receive approximately three weeks prior to your departure.
