The trip allowed me to see much more of Tavira. I used the hop on/off facility to see more. The driver gave me information as to the times he would return for resuming the trip. The majority of Tavira is cobbled which made the journey uncomfortable at times and I was unable to hear the commentary with the wheels noise. Overall though it was an enjoyable journey.

A drive through Tavira is really worth seeing. Unfortunately, the information about speakers is difficult to understand, sometimes not at all. It would be better with headphones. A higher price is also justified for this.

It was ideal for the rainy day. Journey a little rickety due to cobbled roads also missed a little commentary for same reason. Saves leg work and hop on/off very handy. Charming ride.

A lovely way to see the city and the sights and a detailed talk given of the history in several languages.

this little train is quite practical to visit the city without having to walk for miles
