Departure Time

2:00 PM
Meet your professional guide at your Algarve hotel for your half-day tour of Lagos and Sagres. Hop into your air-conditioned coach vehicle and cruise to Lagos. Along the way, learn about the Portuguese Age of Discoveries and its pioneers who set sail from Lagos. Arrive in this 2,000-year-old beach town naturally decorated with rock formations and filled with lively restaurants and bars. Then, begin a walking tour of the city center and explore its contemporary and ancient architecture.

Stop and enter the 18th century Church of Santo António (own expense) and notice its interior covered in ornate wood carvings and blue-and-white tiling. Inside, observe Roman artifacts at the Antonine Museum and learn about how Lagos was a commonplace for the 15th century European black slave trade.

Next, stroll to the Prince Henry the Navigator statue and hear the story of this great explorer sailing from Lagos in 1415 to capture the Moroccan city of Ceuta. Learn how this event helped propel Portugal into the Age of Discoveries.

Voyage westward to Sagres and visit this remote village where Prince Henry the Navigator developed the first nautical school in the 15th century. Walk with your guide through the charming village center and treasure the ambiance of the local fishing harbor. Then, stop at Cape St Vincent and capture stunning coastal views of the southwestern tip of Europe. Hop back in the coach and buckle-up as you return to your hotel where your tour ends.

Fairly good, we had an hour in Lagos,not much time to do anything. A 20 min photo stop, a 20 min stop at Cape St. Vincent and a drive past Sagres harbour. It was OK but nothing startling.

This tour could be greatly improved if the number of customers and size of the bus were reduced. For 1.5 hours sightseeing we had to endure 4.5 hours of hotel pick ups and drop offs as well as the travel time to the destinations

Such a pity a pretty good tour was hosted by the rudest and most unprofessional tour guide we have ever experienced. What a massive dissappointment. I would never recommend this tour because of this disgraceful person. I have provided a full and detailed communication to Viator.

Good trip a lot closed on Mondays but worth doing. I booked late and wasn't picked up by bus but after contacting the tour operator one of the office staff collected us in her own car and brought us to the bus. Appreciated the extra effort

We very much enjoyed our visit to Lagos, the photo stop and Cape St Vincent, especially the wonderful sunset. Our guide was very informative throughout the tour. We would have liked more time to wander around Lagos had just over an hour, more time at the photo stop, beautiful scenery, at Sagres we just drove through it, Cape St. Vincent was definitely worth the visit. This was a half day tour but we were picked up by mini van at 12.15 p.m. in Quarteira, met up with the coach in Albufeira at 1 p.m., then made several more pick ups before heading to Lagos. On the return we were transferred in Albufeira to a van and dropped off in Quarteira at 8.30 p.m., making it a day trip. Co-ordination of various pick ups to one coach pick-up in Albufeira and same on the return would have meant less time sitting on the bus and perhaps allowed more time at the stops.
