Marco our guide was excellent. He was so informative and entertaining as well. He took us to some amazing places where we had great views from high up. We learned so much about all the different herbs and fruits grown in Portugal and about cork. We went to a goji berry farm and tried honey, fruits and had some strong gin. The open top jeep and the fresh air made it feel like a safari adventure. My kids aged 14 and 17 loved it.

Limited things we could do due to doing this experience during Corpos Christi (16th June 2022) and we were not able to rebook as we had other activities planned in other days. The whole experience of taking the jeep safari around Albufeira’s farms and seeing how that side of the city lives is amazing. We had gorgeous weather and we were talked through farming life etc. we had a very good driver too.

The Guide Miguel picked us up at the hotel and he was very knowledgeable on the fruits and spices on the tour. He spoke english and also french for another couple. We stopped at the castle had a look around. The waterfall was lovely also but the highlight was the village of Alte. We were lucky as we did the trip on the 25th April and it was a national holiday with traditional activities, live music, local cuisine and different gift stalls oh and bottle of beer was 1.40 euro . All round the trip was excellent.
