It complies with everything that the ad says and you can always ask the guide anything, we did the journey in reverse starting from Culatra and it gave us time to see all the islands

Thanks again to Paolo who is an extremely interesting guide and who took care of giving us the necessary explanations throughout the boat trip

A really good way to view Vilamoura and see some of the sights you wouldn't normally see. The driver was very friendly.

We loved this little train ride around Vilamoura. It was a nice way to spend an hour and nice to see Old Village.

If you don’t mind the push and shove to get on the train go for it!! The tour itself is lovely and informative.
