Make your way to Praia da Rocha, where this tour begins, then meet a private driver/guide in a central location. Slide into the passenger seat of a 1954 Borgward Isabella—this vehicle was released in the very first year of production, as Carl F. W. Borgward GmbH only made the Borgward Isabella from 1954 to 1962—then keep your camera ready as you hit the road.
Swing by the nearby Fort of Santa Catarina, a medieval landmark built to protect the coast from pirate raids, then continue to the picture-perfect town of Carvoeiro, which looks out at the sea from a cliff-side perch.
See the classic rock formations at Praia da Marinha, or Navy Beach, a stretch of sand and stone that’s frequently rated one of Europe’s top beaches. Throughout the tour, enjoy the flexibility of a private car and driver to see the things that interest you most, explore sights, and take in the Algarve at your own pace. This 2-hour driving tour concludes with drop-off in Praia da Rocha.
