What people are saying about Tavira

João was heel informatief en vriendelijk. Hij heeft ons veel mooie plekjes laten zien. Overal waar we wilden konden we even uitstappen en rondkijken. Hij heeft ook nog wat leuke foto's van ons gemaakt. Wat een kennis heeft deze man over Tavira! En erg comfortable in de tuktuk. Met hoge temperaturen toch wat wind en je hoeft niet veel te lopen om veel te zien.

We just finished off our tour with Vanda exploring the east of Algarve. Vanda’s knowledge of the region, it’s history and all the unique nuggets of information was really useful. The highlights of the trip for us was Mercado at Olhao (coupled with a sumptuous traditional Portuguese lunch) and the sunset at Cacela Velha - breathtaking!

This is a great tour that provides you with a macro view of the Algarve region if you are pressed for time while visiting this region. The tour takes you to a couple of coastal area neighborhoods that are spectacular and worth visiting. A tour worth its value.

Jaão has an excellent knowledge of both the natural environment and the history of the region. This has been the most interesting and informative tour I have done on my current trip to Portugal. A very well paced and informative tour. I highly recommend it.

It was a fantastic way to learn so much about Tavira. Our guide was fantastic!
