Founded in 1986, Riosul – Viagens e Turismo Lda (RioSul – Travel and Tourism Ltd), has always been closely linked to Guaditur Lda, Sea Tour Activity created in 1977 by Renato José Rodrigues D’Oliveira, the main shareholder – manager of the two company ‘sisters’.
Aiming to give greater continuity and support to a project, the pioneer in Portugal initiated the organization and operation of tours and environmental adventures (in all-terrain vehicles and boat) in the river Guadiana and the interior of the Algarve, offering a different and alternative product to beach tourism in the Algarve which was always popular.
After visiting places, meeting people and discovering traditional routes, the pioneer found the need of suitable transport for these routes and came with the idea of 4×4 Land Rover Jeeps circuits.
In 1991, the two companies have collaborated to launch a new type of product, hugely successful among national and foreign operators: the Mixed circuits (boats, jeeps, bicycles and walking tours) especially in the area of the Guadiana River where the companies have “Quinta do Rio”, a property with Rural characteristics which has benefited from its acquisition and throughout the years of numerous works on beautification.
In 2003, apart from the already existing, Riosul launched new regular circuits and incentives, especially in the area of the Guadiana River and the Northeast of the Algarve.
With a fleet of 10 Land Rover jeeps and a boat with maximum capacity of 150 people, Riosul and Guaditur dedicated themselves to promote a different Portugal, with routes/trails in various parts of the country, but especially in the area of the Rio Guadiana, Alentejo and Algarve mountains.

What a fantastic day. I wasn’t too sure what I was expecting but the whole day was excellent from the moment we were picked up until we got back to our hotel. Boat trip on the river followed by swim/drink and a gorgeous meal and then the Safari trail. The staff were all so friendly and very informative. They made us feel so special, like old friends. The way they all entertained us after the meal was an absolute joy. Best day of our holiday in the Algarve. I cannot recommend highly enough. Thank you all so much.
A fantastic journey arround the area next to the rio Guadiana and the water reservoir Odeleite. Delicious lunch with real Portugese dishes, songs and culture. Boat trip back to the starting point. All over a fantastic day with a lot of things learned over Alguarve and the Portugese people. Thank you so much!
A very beautiful and funny experience! I am glad that i found you!❤️ my holiday was complete! I really miss the great crew.. all of them was friendly, nice and funny especially Jorge (George) .. number 1 😃! Thank u all for great day! Hope to come back some day!!
We would highly recommend this river trip, with lunch. Everything was great. The booking process was quick and efficient. We were picked up on time at our campsite and driven to the departure quay. Met there by our guide who explained what would happen. Local style music, singing etc was good too, with all the tour, kitchen and boat staff doing their bit. By the time we were back on the boat to return we’d had a thoroughly good day. Well worth the money.
