Everythink went so smoothly from pickup to drop off. Our guide Andre was so nice and explained all about the area as we booked for the country side trip outside Albufeira. Really recommend to get to know the real Portugal away from the tourist resorts.

Andre is a very nice guy , fluent in English luckily for us . The Tuc Tuc experience is a different way to go site seeing of the beautiful inner working of the countryside. You get to see little back streets that even cats and dogs would find hard to navigate . Louis at the old mill was a bundle of knowledge on the working of the mill and all the Portuguese people we met were so friendly . Excellent day out . Put your sun lotion on , altho, there's good cover with the canvas roofI suggest have a light jacket or top because on the way back is a bit of a drive and can be a little chilly with the wind whistling past for so long , just in case .

Superleuke tocht door het binnenland van de Algarve. We hebben alles gezien wat er in de beschrijving stond en in overleg met de chauffeur kon je extra stops maken of andere dingen zien dan een standaard route voor iedereen. Andre is een erg vriendelijke man die de tijd neemt om dingen te laten zien en om even wat te drinken/zwempauze in te lassen. Al met al zeker een aanrader om wat van het binnenland te zien en te weten te komen!
