A beautifully curated experience. From the locations and hike, to the food and the wonderful company - TJ has created a very unique and special experience. Every aspect had been so carefully considered and TJ’s knowledge of the area - it’s history, landscape and environment - was excellent. I’ve been travelling to Portugal for over ten years and this is hands down the best experience I have had there! I highly, highly recommend!

My husband, sister, and her new fiance did the End of the World hike in July 2019. It was by far our favorite thing we did in Portugal! The beautiful hike with incredible, secluded views combined with TJ's historic knowledge of the country and area gave us a unique experience we will never forget. Through the course of the day, we learned about local biodiversity, navigation, and astronomy, while growing deeper in our appreciate for Portugal and it's rich culture. The hike alone would be well worth it, but the additional knowledge gained makes this a not-to-miss experience.

I created a trip advisor account specifically to write this review. I can't speak highly enough about TJ and this hiking tour. We came to Lagos, and Portugal for that matter, for this adventure tour. It is truly a once in a life time experience. TJ really knows how to get a group, that you normally wouldn't find hiking in their free time, out of their comfort zone. Scared of heights? No problem, TJ's got you covered with tactics to make those fears a little easier to deal with. He knows how to get everyone to work together as a group and do things you wouldn't think possible of yourself. The views will leave you speechless - they don't feel real. The ultimate reward at the end of this hike is sunset tapas with wine on a cliff, right on the ocean. Once the sun goes down, the stars come out like you wouldn't believe. It's truly the most unique experience to share with friends. Do yourself a favor and book this adventure ASAP!

This hiking adventure was hands down the best part of my trip to Portugal. There is no better way to explore the Algarve region, to meet fellow travelers, and to -- quite literally -- experience the remoteness and tranquility of the "End of the World." T.J. is extremely knowledgeable about the area, friendly and accommodating -- he has every detail planned and you literally don't have to worry about a thing except for showing up. This is an unparalleled opportunity to do something "off the beaten track" and to see, hear, smell, and even taste Portugal away from the tourists and the hustle and bustle. I went to Portugal as a solo traveler, and I met some new friends on this hike that I'm still in touch with. The hike may be a little pricier than other opportunities in the area, but that's because it offers something nobody else does and is worth every penny. I highly recommend taking a West Coast Adventure -- you will not be disappointed!

This hike was one of my fondest memories of the Algarve. TJ is very personable, and knows how to cater to each individual group. I enjoyed the food we had and even him sharing his recipes. This was such a treat, and I highly recommend this hike with TJ.
