Co budeš dělat

As a tourist, you're usually looking for the walk that gives you the fullest experience but, at the same time, is time and cost-effective. All of this is thought out when people set up their tours so when you sign up for it, you’re sure to get the same thing: the most iconic buildings in town seen through the same old and dated perspective (the “grand narrative”), which put in much simpler terms is the same as seeing things from bird-view — you can get the full scope, but at a distance.
For this reason, this walk was carefully designed from a particular point of view to take you through all those old and saturated buildings but be honest (and educated) about them. This means that while you'll be visiting all the touristic hotspots in town, you're getting the two sides of the coin: the “grand narrative” and the not-so-pleasant-info that is frequently left out because it has no place in it. Plus, you will not be getting biased information, but rather historical perspectives that allow you to understand everything in context.
Simply (and honestly) put, this walk is everything in between the heavyweight history books and the lifeless compact guidebooks — with a sense of humour.

Born and raised in the city; have lived here for the longest part of my life. The food is great, the weather is priceless but growing up I only cared about finding the best way to go around it. I believe this is what got me into majoring in Art & Architecture History and why I might be just the right person for this walk, aside from my sense of humour. But that's just my guess. Why not make yours?

Kde budeš

Every country has a unique history and its buildings have a very particular way of letting it be known, but you won’t spot it unless someone points it out to you. Portugal is no different and I (like to) believe that all of it will be brought up during this walk — from the golden age to the dark times; past to present; history and architecture but also pop culture. This is the closest you'll ever be to a live-action version of a Wikipedia page.

Ell was a great guide, tailoring the tour for the audience. His passion for Portuguese history and art shines through. He also provided lots of practical advice for sightseeing, eating and nightlife in Faro and beyond. Highly recommended!

Really insightful tour. Definitely recommend starting with this one when you first come to Faro. The host is really knowledgeable and passionate about it.

Since we were the only people signed up for his tour, he met our train which was very nice. Ell is very knowledgeable, loves his subject, and speaks perfect English. It was such a nice touch at the end when he gave us lemons from his grandmother's tree and a small piece of homemade goat cheese from a neighbor.

Ell was very knowledgable and passionate about his subject. This walking tour expertly combines history, religion & architecture in a very accessible way. It was good fun, packs a lot into 90 minutes and was great value for money. Highly recommended.

We are normally very sceptical about guided tours and practically never take them but we're so happy we did this time! It's the best investment if you just arrived in the city and you want a quick deep dive into its history and the Portuguese culture in general. We loved the way Ell presented how the believes and happenings of certain time periods manifested in architecture and style. The walk was so well structured too, it felt like walking on a time line, starting from the first historical building and onwards in history so that you could always follow easily and remember the dates and facts much better. He has a nice sense of humour and a brilliant way of storytelling that makes listening easy and never boring. Besides he truly seems to love his subject and it's contagious. And as if that wasn't enough he put in the extra time and effort after the walk to send everyone a tailored mail of tips and insights for visiting Faro and the whole algarve, where to eat, where to buy wines and souvenirs. Honestly, don't miss out on this tour you will not regret it!

Éll was ever so friendly and made us all feel very welcome. His knowledge and passion with regards to all things Portugal was delightful and we came away with lots of information that we didn't know about beforehand. Lots of top tips in the locality for eating and drinking also which was also great. Thank you very much. Would highly recommend!!
