The Beauty of NATURE with a Taste of ADVENTURE

The Beauty of NATURE with a Taste of ADVENTURE


Welcome to Silvestours. Come with us and explore the beautiful Algarvian countryside! All our tours start from Silves. I collect you in the town centre with my jeep and take you straight to the hills or we go to my boat, on the river, a few minutes away. This year we also offer walking tours of Silves and I have been busy studying the history and culture of this beautiful town. Have a look at our photo gallery and video page to see all that we do.
If you are interested in a tour you can contact me directly (by phone or email) or you can book online. Please look at the Tour Pages for specific booking and pricing information.


Hello, I am Thyl (pronounced “Teel”) your guide and driver. I am an explorer, a nature and history enthusiast and – in the winter months – also a landscape painter. I have enjoyed many hours exploring Silves and the countryside. I enjoy showing my favourite landscapes, meeting people and sharing my local knowledge. I speak English, French, Dutch and Portuguese. I am fully licensed and insured (RNAAT 376/2019). You can also find me on Facebook and Instagram (@silvestours). My phone number is (+351) 928 080 653  and my email is info@silvestours.


Meeting Point


Outside the entrance of Restaurant “Ponte Romana”.

GPS coordinates: (37.186108, -8.437531)

If you come by foot from Silves it is on the other side of the pedestrian bridge “Ponte Romana”.

If you come by car this is an easy place to park. From the highway or from Lagoa, you will descend a hill down to Silves. At the top of the hill, there is a small tunnel. You can turn left 750 meters after the tunnel, opposite a pet and garden shop, and  park your car.
