Normally for clients looking in multiple areas, “Discovery Tours” are multi-city or multi-location visits lasting 1-2 full days. They include a combination of visits to different towns or areas, including a background on each, and suitable property visits to both properties for sale or rent, as appropriate. This is fixed-price covering costs (including lunch for up to 2 visitors) and time with a local team member, experienced in the local market. They also include all the preparatory work required to organise the visit, including coordination of multiple local partners based on specific client requirements.

Feedback on this personalised manner of introducing the country and its regions to potential retirees, winter residents or investors has been exceptionally positive, and without exception our visitors consider this the most cost-effective way of quickly getting an understanding of the areas and what each offers. As we always say, it also helps to eliminate those options which are not a match, or not to customers’ liking.

Book a minimum 1-month stay with us* and we will include a reduced-price 1 day Discovery Tour, either in the Western Algarve, Eastern Algarve, or greater Lisbon area.

Toni and I were delighted with our “Discovery Tours. Rui and Joao were both thorough and personable.  With their help we were able to narrow the towns we wish to investigate further to four, and to prioritise preliminarily the desirability of each in only two days! My hat’s off to you for the tour concept, and for your wise choice of these two men to execute it.

The tour we took was very enlightening. Visiting the different towns gave us a first hand feel of the areas.  Seeing the apartments in person was a great opportunity.  Pictures are great but this allowed for a broader perspective.  The tour was so valuable.  We came away feeling confident in our decision to eliminate certain towns and put our focus  right now on Praia da Luz and Lagos.

Joao was a wonderful guide.  Having grown up in Algarve he had a wealth of knowledge.  We asked a lot of questions and he was gracious and patient in answering.

Joao also listened to  what we  liked or disliked about the apartments and towns and adjusted our tour accordingly.  What a bonus!  This allowed us to experience Praia da Luz  a little more instead of touring apartments he had lined up that he knew were not of interest to us.

Having a personal tour worked for well for us.  It was a great decision.

Thanks for everything

We had a most interesting and instructive day out with João on Saturday.  It was a very good decision to take the Discovery Tour and we covered a great deal of ground.  João was an excellent guide and we were able to learn far more about the Algarve than we could have done on our own.  Our thanks to João for looking after us so well and to Maria for her careful planning.  We learned a lot in a short time.

The tour was very useful and informative as well as very enjoyable.  João especially did wonderful job that not only showed as the properties but also inspired us about how the actual living would be!

Thank you, Maria and Rui for putting our Discovery tour together. Rui showed us more sites in a day than we could have imagined.

Everything Algarve Senior Living did was perfect. Tami’s communication, and support, was fantastic and João was wonderful on the Discovery Tour.
