This was an absolutely amazing experience. Delfin is an excellent guide and driver. It was our first time on a motor cycle and we felt very safe and comfortable throughout the tour. Delfin shared a wealth of knowledge regarding the history, local culture, gastronomy and agriculture of the area. He also took some great photos of my sister and I when he stopped to explain the different areas. The drive up the hills to the Winery was fantastic. He pointed out different trees including the cork trees and explained how the cork is harvested and was used for different items. The Winery included a tasting of 6 different wines and we drove through the vineyards to see how everything is laid out and we enjoyed the different sculptures scattered about the property. Returning to the older section of Portimao on our way to the Tapas Cafe we attracted a lot of attention from the locals . Following a lovely lunch we headed into the new section and the beach at Praia da Rocha. All in all it was a perfect day and this tour is great for anyone of any age.
You could not ask for a better tour guide and driver. Delfin, thank you so much for this wonderful experience.
This was an absolutely amazing experience. Such an enjoyable way of getting around and our guide was very knowledgeable and kept us informed all the way. Great wine tasting and the tapas tasting was excellent. The whole tour is highly recommended and not to be missed.
Taking the tour on the motorcycle with my friend was a blast. We each took a turn sitting in the sidecar which was a great experience especially since I had only been on a motorcycle two other times and never in a sidecar. Our tour guide and driver, Delfim, was a great driver and very knowledgeable about the area, showing us various parts of Portimao along with a vineyard. We enjoyed sitting outside in the vineyard sipping our wine, enjoying all the sculptures and talking with Delfim. After going to the vineyard we were taken to a nice restaurant for a traditional Portuguese meal consisting off sardines on bruschetta with a side salad and wine which was fabulous. This was definitely a highlight of our trip.
This was indeed a great experience! - it was my first riding in a sidecar motorcycle through the sunny countryside. The tour is great, taking you from the modern resort of Portimao, to an old village, then up the hills to stop is a spectacular vineyard a place of fine arts all together - the art of making the wine and also sculptures. The wine tasting brings interesting flavours that stay with you on your way back to Portimao. And this is not the end - we also stopped at a tapas place to taste some local cuisine specialties - very tasty..yummy....I took the recipe. Then back in the motorcycle for a tour of the old city and to the beach. And of course - the other ingredient that made this trip special - our amazing guide. Thank you :
We had such an amazing tour with Delfim! A must do excursion! Delfim was fabulous, friendly, we felt totally safe with him, he was courteous and knowledgeable. On our way to the vineyard, he took us through traditional neighbourhoods, stopped to explain the history and the agriculture. During he ride he was friendly and was easily able to converse with us in English. Delfim Suggested some restaurants near where we are staying and our tour ended with a tasty traditional Portuguese meal of sardines and mackerel served with delicious bread. At the end of our tour he even dropped us off at the door very much appreciated. Delfim gave us a great overview of the local culture and history of the region. We highly recommend that you take this tour!
This was by far the highlight of our trip to the Algarve this year 4/9/17
Delfim the driver was a very good host stopping at various places on route to the vineyard.
We had a good tasting of the wines provided.
The reaction from people as we past on the sidecar was a laugh.
Then to the local tapas cafe and supplied us with our choice to test.
Very good chilled out way to see more than normal.
Delfim Martin, who runs this tour was absolutely fantastic. We would highly recommend this tour to anyone of any age. He toured us in and around Portomao very safely stopping lots of times explaining the city, it's history and culture. We sampled the local wines at a local vineyard. experience the local 'Sardine cuisine. The bike and side car was near new and a totally different way to experience Portugal.
Highly recommended, thanks Delfin.

We spent an interesting, entertaining and memorable time with our guide Delfim on our wine tasting and gastronomy tour of Portimao and the surrounding area.
We already knew the general area, having previously visited on a number of occasions, but Delfim was able to take us on roads we never knew existed, and all at a pace so that it was easy to take in the city and country views and soak up the atmosphere.
The tour of the wine estate, wine tasting and near Estombar and the tapas tasting in Portimao were all thoroughly enjoyable.
To experience it all on a motorbike and sidecar just added loads of fun.
