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.

The tour was great. We went to Loula with the TukTuk. The journey takes about 45 minutes.First, we were in the market hall and explored various delicacies. We then walked very comfortably through the city and jorge showed us the beautiful sights. Very recommendable tour. Would you book again anytime.

Picked up on time from our hotel. Tour Guide was very friendly and informative. She told us about local places of interest on the way to Loule to the market, dropped us off and picked back up at exactly the time she said she would. Would highly recommend this tour and guide in particular.

George you did an excellent job. You knowledge of the area is outstanding. Joan and I can not thank you enough.
