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.

Joao is a great guy. He explains everything very well and adapts as much as he can to the group. In our case, we even told him that we were eating and we didn't have time to get there and he approached the restaurant. As for the route, it was very complete and since he knew that we had already seen a part of it, and without saying anything, he changed the route. A super 10!!! With detail at the end of the tour. Thank you very much Joao. And we will return to see the salt flats from May to October. We have seen incredible places in Tavira and learned a lot. highly recommended

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!

Pickup exactly as planned, the quiet TukTuk could travel through lane ways and areas in the Historic Centre. I learned a lot and enjoyed the safe way to visit Tavira.

Nice tour of sights and historical buildings in Tavira. Well worth it!
