Start your journey towards Silves from Albufeira as a professional driver picks you up from your hotel or a nearby location of your choice. The vehicle is conveniently air-conditioned and offers comfort on your way to sit back and enjoy the beautiful sites all around you.


Silves is one of the oldest cities of the Western Algarve which was once the capital city. It houses the oldest church and the largest castle in Algarve. The town is popular for its rich past and the most well-preserved castle from medieval times which aligns well with the summer medieval festival. Spend an hour in the town hitting the highlights of this charming town.


Move on to the Monchique, popular for its range of mountains and healing hot springs. Meet unending panoramic sceneries all around you. The town and its magical healing water were first discovered by the Romans. Explore the town and its natural treasures for another full hour before you move to Lagos.


Lakes or Lagos in Portuguese is the place of the most stunning beaches and rocky formations with steep cliffs. There is no other city in the Algarve that comes even close to the rare beauty of this place. The drama in nature is what makes this place a popular attraction. It is popular for its idyllic seaside setting. At Lagos, visit sites such as the golden church of Santo António, a 15th-century slave market, the old town, and the fortress.


The last stop you would make is at the ‘end of the world’ or commonly known as Sagres, the southwesternmost point of continental Europe. Marvel at the spectacular views of the coast, rock formations, and lighthouse before making your way back to Albufeira.
