What else can you wish for on your holidays, but to sleep on the most confortable hotels, built in hystorical buildings which take you back to long gone centuries and, on your way between them, visit the nicest hidden corners of the Alentejo?
 
With our expert guides and our very personal service, you can be sure you will see all those places that are not on the guide books and, if they are, you’ll get to them along the best route!
 
We will drive you between the different Pousadas on our comfortable jeeps, using some dirt roads and some lovely secondary asphalt roads also.
 
We will have many stops along the way to visit the best monuments, artisans, wineries, cheese producers, etc.
 
We will adapt each tour to your wishes. You need only to tell your guide which are your main interests and we can customize the planed route.
 
The car and driver are available for the group at all times, even on free afternoons. This means that if the group decides to visit a place on a free afternoon that is on the area but not within walking distance, the guide will take them.
