The jeep was slightly late picking us up, but after a quick phone all we were told the jeep to look out for and that they were a few minutes away. The guide was absolutely brilliant. Really friendly, accommodating to all, inclusive of everyone, including communicating in different languages. He was a great laugh, even when we had to give the jeep a push. I joked that I would leave a 1 star review, and we had a good giggle about that. He made sure we were all having fun, and checked up on us if we were too quiet. Very informative about everything we saw. Unfortunately we weren't able to do the tasting, and the waterfall was dried up, but we had a brilliant day nonetheless. We dis stop at a swing on the edge of the mountain, which was unexpected. It wasn't rushed at all, and he made sure we all had plenty of time to take in the views, and take turns with photos on the swing before we left.

The Tour was fantastic. Pick up and drop off at the hotel. We were 6 people. Our guide was so great, really knowledgeable and friendly. (I think his name was Gill, Jill? I’m sorry I forgot!) He made sure we were all okay and had a good time. We went swimming, saw a really cool windmill and had a little tour inside. We went to this amazing mountain top with a cute swing for great pictures. The off road part was so fun when we were allowed to stand up. He made a cute boat out of a leave for the kid who was onboard with us and showed me how to do one too. Great Tour to get away from just the beach. Definitely would recommend.

Super, cool tour guide who showed us some beautiful corners inland! The safari across the country is varied, adventurous and also super informative to learn everything about the Algarve. We also had a pleasant cooling off at the end of the tour in a natural body of water. Gladly again!
