I’ve always felt this region is a special place where nature and culture have been very well preserved, and where people live a quiet, simple, and environmentally friendly way of life.

Manuel grew up in Lisbon and has been living and travelling around Portugal all his life, especially in the Alentejo and Algarve regions, where most of his family is.


This is an amazing adventure, full of beautiful walks, historical secrets, and delicious food and wine—a real cultural immersion.

The trip was a perfect way to visit southern Portugal. The guides were awesome, always there to lend a hand or offer guidance. The bikes were outstanding - brand new fleet. The routes were interesting and scenic with little traffic. The food and wine were great. And above all the opportunity to spend time with old friends and to meet new friends was rewarding. Thanks

Biking Southern Portugal: Alentejo to the Algarve

This was our first VBT vacation. We were very impressed with the planning, accommodations, and route. It was a wonderful experience to bike along country roads with guides who knew the area. The hotels were lovely and the meals were delicious. Everything was top-notch.
