Pick-up directly from the hotel with a coach (a bit late but okay). The tour guide was lovely, was professional and had everyone and everything under control. The tour lasted approximately from 09:30 am to 05:00 pm. We visited various towns with a market, an archaeological excavation, a church, various traditional handicrafts, a schnapps distillery (incl. Degu), etc. Lunch was organized at around 2:00 p.m., and you paid for it per person Starter, main course, dessert, wine, coffee and drink 16 euros. You could choose between chicken, pork or fried fish. The tour guide took the time for all participants and explained everything in the respective language (German, French, English, Portuguese). There was a stay of about 1 hour per place. You could either walk around freely or go with the guide. She knew a lot and you could tell that she loves the Algarve.

The tour was great. We went to Loula with the TukTuk. The journey takes about 45 minutes.First, we were in the market hall and explored various delicacies. We then walked very comfortably through the city and jorge showed us the beautiful sights. Very recommendable tour. Would you book again anytime.

George you did an excellent job. You knowledge of the area is outstanding. Joan and I can not thank you enough.
