From the moment you arrive, your journey with Exclusive Soul Tours is nothing short of luxurious. Imagine being picked up from the airport or your accommodation, greeted with a glass of champagne as you embark on your adventure.

Exclusive Soul Tours caters to individuals, couples, and groups of up to six, offering routes from Sagres to Tavira. Each journey can include a variety of towns, villages, or luxurious experiences.

Memorable bachelor parties, breathtaking sunsets on the beach paired with wine or champagne and oysters are just a few of the options to choose from, and the service car can even be tailored to special celebrations or weddings, adorned with special decorations.

Eduardo’s attention to detail is evident in every aspect of his service. The sunset experiences he arranges by the sea are always unique, crafted to evoke calm and tranquillity with light, neutral tones accented by soothing blues. As the company’s name suggests, it aims to “touch everyone’s soul” through a universal and happy experience that conveys “positive emotions and great energy”.

Eduardo emphasises that their main goal is for people “to be satisfied and happy and to share their experience with friends and family”.

Eduardo Burnay was born in Luanda, Angola, but moved with his parents to Porto, in northern Portugal, when he was just a year old. His love affair with the Algarve started during childhood holidays on the Costa Vicentina, where the stunning landscapes and natural beauty left a mark on his heart. This deep connection to the region fuels his dedication to providing tours that capture the true essence of the Algarve, from its rich culture and history to its exquisite gastronomy and wines.

His tours are not just about sightseeing; they are immersive experiences. Eduardo curates playlists and pays close attention to every detail, including the weather conditions (such as going to more sheltered beaches on a windy day), ensuring that each tour is perfect. Whether visiting well-known spots or hidden gems, he crafts experiences that resonate deeply with each guest.

Visitors from around the world are drawn to Exclusive Soul Tours, motivated by Eduardo’s ability to create unique and sometimes surprising itineraries tailored to their interests. He carefully identifies points of interest and crafts proposals that balance popular attractions with off-the-beaten-track experiences, always mindful of each client’s preferences and limits.

My main priority is guest satisfaction, of course,” he says. “I want them to enjoy a unique and impactful moment, at the highest level, that they will carry with them for the rest of their lives.” His dedication to creating impactful experiences is at the heart of Exclusive Soul Tours.

Despite his background in Physical Education, Eduardo’s career has been remarkably diverse. He has hosted television and radio programmes, collaborated with magazines, organised luxury events, and worked in Marketing and Branding.

He is also a regular speaker at national and international surfing championships. His diverse experiences have honed his communication skills, and he speaks five languages fluently, including Portuguese, Spanish, Italian, French, and English, with German and Dutch next on his list.

Before founding Exclusive Soul Tours, Eduardo created Surf Soul Tours while living in Porto. A self-taught surfer, he fell in love with the sport at 16 and quickly realised his passion could become a business. His dedication and commitment to surfing, combined with his communication skills and love for the Algarve, laid the foundation for his successful venture.

Eduardo’s personal and professional growth, driven by his curiosity and desire to explore new places and ideas, has resulted in a truly exceptional and exclusive service with only five-star reviews. His deep connections with the local community, coupled with his creativity, rigour, and motivation, make him the perfect guide for creating unforgettable moments that will stay with you for a lifetime.
