What people are saying about Albufeira

Very great experience. I have been called 1 day before and Tour Operator suggested to swap quad to buggy as they were getting customers feedback that riding quad for 6 hours is not really comfy for 2 people on it. We agreed to swap and this was really good decision as otherwise riding one quad with two people on it will be overkilling.

Fantastic experience from start to finish, great hospitality! Unbelievably cheap Danny & nelson was great guides couldn’t recommend more! Definitely a must do when visiting Albufieira Great job

Marco was amazing, great sense of humour and a wealth of knowledge and he had his own spin on tourism and information, his knowledge of plants would make him a great botanist...request Marco
