Our group was happy and satisfied when they arrived back home. Everyone agreed that the success of this week was due to the excellent, well thought-out walking programme. Thank you very much for this outstanding concept and for your dedication during the tour.
“What can you say about the tour guide?”: Great! Very considerate, acts immediately, subtle, very attentive and well informed and always willing to give extra information. Very good knowhow of flora and fauna /regional geography. Here I can only give the best score.

It was an unforgettable hiking day with Ricarda for me and my husband. She has given us so much enthusiasm for this beautiful landscape, was a very pleasant travel companion and has informed us absolutely competent about flora and fauna. Above all, we were very fascinated by the birdlife. It is hard to imagine how beautiful and varied this landscape is. We enjoyed everything, we relaxed a lot and will certainly come back in another month.

In Septemer 2009 we made 3 hikes of various kinds. The first took us along the coast towards Sagres to the most south-westerly point of Europe. It was amazing to look over the sea from the cliffs and to discover beautiful beaches (outside the tourist centers). The second hike took us to the Monchique mountains. Lined with cork oaks and eucalyptus trees, we climbed the second highest peak in the mountains. The weather played along and we had a fabulous vision. We also visited a beekeeper who sold honey and the typical Portuguese “strawberry brandy”. The last tour we took to the nature reserve near Faro. We got a great insight into nature and we were able to watch hundreds of flamigos. Likewise an Ibis, and different types of ducks and other birds. Ricarda also explained how the sea salt is extracted in Portugal. With Ricarda, we have not only met a great hiking guide, but also a wonderful person, so that the farewell was very difficult. A holiday we will not forget so quickly.
Thank you very much for this wonderful walking programme which I enjoyed very much. You introduced us not only to Portugal’s nature in a very sensitive and kind way but you also showed us a very authentic Algarve. I especially liked the highly variable walking tours with their different challenges.

Dear Ricarda Many thanks again for being a wonderful guide for our group in June. We were all very impressed with your knowledge of the routes, and the flexibility in designing an appropriate itinerary for the very hot conditions. The additional suggestions for the boat trip and visit to Cape St Vincent were also much appreciated.We would have no hesitation in recommending your services to the large number of walkers we know from the UK.
