A very good guide, I liked the layout as it reads more like a book than some of the guides that can become confusing to use. The cover photo's conjure up all that I would expect of the algarve.
Look forward to seeing many of the places featured.Good Luck
Lovely style of writing. Jam packed full of useful information....a great read.
This is what I call a guide book, what it lacks in maps it makes up for in information

Very informative guide, looking forward to our visit next month.
Fantastic,Informative book.
A friendly and chatty style makes this book more accessible than many guides. It also shows a real appreciation of the people and the area, proving an intimate knowledge and love for the Algarve which goes beyond the normal holiday recommendations you find in most books or websites. Some great photography too!
Great book
We love the Algarve ! We will buy this book immediately !
Excellent Guide with useful information xxx
very helpful for visitors to algarve, but above all for the readers of Algarve24 NewsOnline. we publish a little story from Karl's book every week.
Super book on the Algarve
This is without doubt the best Travel Guide to the Algarve, includes all the hidden gems, and loads of useful information.
well worth the purchase & a defo for the flight over
Great Book, Lots of useful information
The best guide I have read that covers the Algarve
He certainly knows his stuff
A reader from Canada wishes you Good Luck!
Great book that will be useful to our clients, when they need knowledge of a town or village in the Algarve.
Purchased on Amazon as a Kindle, great value as the guide covers the 54 cities-town & villages. have never come across a book that cover so much of the algarve.
Factual book that does Southern Portugal proud, very informative on descriptions of the many places I have visited. A book worthy of winning an award.
Brilliant useful book!
I have lived on the Algarve for nearly two years, and this book is so helpful to us, very informative & a great read.
Excellent book full of great info and advise
Great Read
Very informative book.
My last visit to Portugal was over 15 years ago. This book brought back memories so I convinced myself to return. Excellent guide and thoroughly informative.
Excellent Guide !!!
I know the Algarve quite well not as well as Karl! I used his book to research my most recent trip. The descriptions of towns and villages that don't usually feature in the touristy blurb were particularly helpful for making decisions about where to go and gave me a good idea of what to expect. I've also recommended the book to people who are thinking of moving to the Algarve but not sure which part they want to be in.
Well prepared and thought through with easy flowing text and descriptions that continue through the book, a joy to read.
A very unusual travel guide, gives loads of interesting facts, ideal to read on the plane. I found it very easy to dip in and out and every time felt compelled to read on.I can see this becoming a no1 best seller for the Algarve market.
Good book with useful information
This is an amazing book with everything you would want to know about this lovely part of Portugal The Algarve
verry nice book
This book is a must have for any one visiting the Algarve. It is full of useful information and tips. Well worth the money.
Absolutely fantastic travel book. A must if you are going to Portugal!!!
Excellent travel guide, I would fully recommend it for your trip to the Algarve

This is the first time we have ever found a guide that covers the whole Algarve. It was nice to read about some of the smaller village we had visited in the past. Some has things we missed so may well plane to revisit them,as never knew there is a tea shop & museum in Algoz. Well done to the author.
Excellent guide to the Algarve, so much so that i keep copies in my rental properties and the guests love it!

A well laid out and informative book about a load of places to go for anyone visiting the Algarve.
There have been many alleged tourist guides to the Algarve written, but this is definitely the must have guide. It has information essential for the tourist, Information on towns written in such a way that the author is obviously writing from first hand experience. I have been visiting the Algarve for nearly 20 years, and thought I knew much about the Algarve, but this guide highlights things I never knew about.

I have in the past spent many years in the Algarve wish this book had been around then. Bryan B
A different approach to know the Algarve, also a good gift to offer to someone who wants to discover the truly Algarve, visiting numerous places. The title says everything.
Very informative, even if you think you know the Algarve well you still find things and places you didn't know about in this book.
One of the best travel guides I have read. Full of information about the places and other info about a number of things you might need to know about. Glad I bought the book and am able to recommend it for a prize.
The best Travel Guide for the Algarve, one of the most beautiful places on planet earth! Obrigada Karl Bradshaw-White. Looking forward to more. May be a guide for the Alentejo?
