Me and my friends took this trip on our last day in albufeira and what a lovely way to end the holiday! Luis picked us up from our apartment and drove us round the coast of the Algarve stopping off at each destination for us to look around and take pictures, he even got some great shots of us kindly! we booked very last minute so we were very happy with how much he fitted in for us including booking the wine tasting at Jao Clara which was incredible, the lady had lots of information to share with us and the wine was lovely we even bought a few bottles. We asked Luis could we be dropped just at a restaurant instead of back at our apartment and he told us to just message when we were done and he will pick us up and drop us off, so kind! Luis was very funny and made our day very enjoyable, thanks so much Luis we had a great time! 10/10

Very good visit accompanied by explanations from a great guide (Zé). This tour allows us to learn part of the history of Albufeira, and to take non-tourist paths! In addition, the guide takes us to a part of the coast in order to take photos on different beaches. However, on the 3:00 a.m. tour, no swimming time is provided, contrary to what is sold in the program.

It was a very nice experience and a calm way to explore and see the different things briefly as well as the beaches!
