TripAdvisor sent me an email suggesting various things to do during our stay in Albufeira and this was one of the things I felt our family of 5 would all enjoy. They collect from outside hotels, and luckily our villa was 2 doors down from a hotel so we arranged to meet there at 9am. The host, Hugo pronounced 'Oogo', was courteous, charming, funny and very knowledgable, made us all feel safe in the vehicle and took us up into the hills on one of the prescribed routes - we saw lots of other jeeps too - and to see some great things. The visit to a small distillery was a real highlight, as was the stop off at a cafe / bakery in a small village. My kids loved the off road bits, while I as their mother tried not to dwell on the 'what if's! So pleased we did this tour, well worth the money and very entertaining - I have already recommended this trip to two friends who are visiting with their families in the next few weeks - I hope they get Hugo!
We really enjoyed the Jeep tour. Our driver Peter really made it a fun day out for us all, he went out of his way to stop and show us the real heart of Algarve. Every village we came to he would stop and chat with the old folks who were sitting sunning themselves and they seemed to enjoy our interactions in our very limited Portuguese.
We would recommend this trip to anyone who wishes to go off the beaten track and explore the real Algarve.
Wonderful experience.We booked this trip for a party of 10, ages from 13 to 53 and everyone agreed it was one of the highlights of our holiday.The tour took us away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist area into the beautiful serene countryside of Portugal.Too many highlights to list.Our guides were excellent, very friendly and highly knowledgable.Book with confidence.
