What a fantastic evening! João was the perfect guide. Personable, funny and full of wonderful stories and history. He introduced our group (which was a fabulous group btw!) to more refined versions of Portuguese cuisine, family fare which was sumptuous and warming to the core, to a local bar with delicious foods making the mouth water and a shot of local “moonshine”. We topped the evening off with a coffee and sweets and chatted with our new friends. Highly recommended this tour.

One of the cheapest longest experiences to do from Albufeira. Pick up in minibus around 8:30am, returned to hotel at 1pm. Nice, informative driver. Masks required in minivan. Farmers Market is huge! Gypsy market not so great with stuff usually found elsewhere but Loule itself is real nice and worth the few hours to look around. Highly recommended for half a day excursion.

Everything was really great, everything was well organized! (The only downside was that the exact pick-up time was not known until 11 p.m. the day before)! To recommend!!!

Jonny was a terrific driver/guide. Good fun all the way. Great food and lots of wine at our lunch stop. Good full day of sightseeing and adventure. Thoroughly reccomend.

George was a very funny and nice guide. He speaks several languages so was able to connect with everyone. Very nice.
