Very enjoyable few hours with Paul, our Tuk Tuk driver and guide. He brought us to many scenic sights including Fisherman’s beach at the Old Town and lots of other smaller beaches with great views. We also visited the Marina and had some time to ourselves there. The Tuk Tuk was a very easy way to get around and felt quite safe with its own air conditioning ! Paul was very informative and had some interesting stories to tell.

Our guide Andre picked us up at the hotel and also dropped off. We drove to great vantage points and bays. The tour was great to discover Albufeira and get to know the most important and beautiful corners. Andre spoke good English, took pictures of us and was very friendly.

Excellent!! to do!! we asked for a guide who speaks French and we got Fred who was perfect. He made us visit the city and magnificent beaches. His love for his country is felt and he knows its history very well. Thank you for this beautiful 1/2 day.

Superb ride

To do as soon as you arrive in order to plan future explorations! Great ride, ask Fred he is great, speaks French and is very funny!

Tuk-tuk tour with Andrea was great! Without tuk-tuk we never could see so many beautiful places.
