One of the cheapest longest experiences to do from Albufeira. Pick up in minibus around 8:30am, returned to hotel at 1pm. Nice, informative driver. Masks required in minivan. Farmers Market is huge! Gypsy market not so great with stuff usually found elsewhere but Loule itself is real nice and worth the few hours to look around. Highly recommended for half a day excursion.

Fred was an outstanding tour guide and the two hour trip just flew by, full of interesting anecdotes about Albufeira's history and we had a fabulous time with marvellous views of the beaches! Fred was passionate about Albufeira and sustainable eco-tourism and his lively banter was an important feature of the tour. Highly recommended!!

Everything was really great, everything was well organized! (The only downside was that the exact pick-up time was not known until 11 p.m. the day before)! To recommend!!!

A nice friendly guide knows a lot about the area. And takes the time and gives you enough time to look around and discover things for yourself.

An excellent way to see the sights and beaches and to learn some of the history .
