Superb morning with our guide. Just magnificent landscapes, breathtaking spots. A guide passionate about photography. You receive them by email the same day. They are superb. A tuk tuk tour that changes buses or taxis and much more pleasant to enjoy the good weather. I recommend this activity 100%. Is it worth it. You just need to be in good physical condition, a lot of stairs, small paths between the rocks. Alone, we would never have managed to find these wonders. Thank you again to our guide for making us discover Albufeira this way. In addition, he was doing very well in French, LUCK!

A really great tour, and a great way to see Albufeira. The driver is very friendly and we got an extra hour as he was so enthusiastic to show us the sights. He also took a lot of pictures on his camera and sent them to us, as we had only brought camera phones. One of the best tours we’ve been on!

Absolute must trip, you get to see some stunning beaches and have the opportunity to get great pictures. Our guide Jorge was outstanding and very accommodating. He went out of his way to help us out during our journey and was full of knowledge of the area we covered.

I highly recommend, super guide Jorge, very attentive, made us discover unusual places of beauty, including caves from beaches overlooking the sea! We thank Jorge again for his kindness, taking pictures of us in unique places and sending them to us graciously
