What a great tour. Joao was fun and informative and rolled with our most rambunctious travel partner. The surprises at the end of the tour were amazing. We had a great time and would highly recommend any activity Joao offers. He was so kind, my husband left his cane in the tuk tuk and Joao came all the way back to where he dropped us off to return it. We just moved to Tavira and took the tour to learn about our new city. That turned out to be a great idea, because not only did we learn a lot, but we covered a lot of ground, seeing things I'm not sure we would have found on our own. In all, fun and memorable.

This was the perfect activity to do with my 80 year old mom who gets around pretty slowly and can't walk too far without getting tired. She was visiting from the US and we wanted to show her around Tavira. Our guide was wonderful and did a great job showing us the sights and describing the rich history of the town. The tour also included a visit to the salt pans where we got to see workers skimming of the fleur de sel and learn about the ancient practice.

Tavira is a city worth visiting for its monuments, history and landscapes. João took the experience of getting to know Tavira to another level, for the knowledge and taste for the city he shows, for the care he gave us during the trip and for the small details that made this experience something that will last in our memory. I strongly recommend it!

João was an excellent guide taking us to the historic locations of Tavira a well as the salinas. I strongly recommend.

Lovely way to get around. Guide was friendly and informative
