We loved this activity. Jorge took us to a lot of places in such a short time, is very passionate about his country and took the time showing us how wonderful the places are. Not only was he a fabulous tour guide, he was also a fantastic photographer and genuine nice person Would definitely recommend Jorge and his Tuktuk trip to anyone

Victor was a great guide with lots of information and history. He was very knowledgeable and friendly. We loved the various sites that we visited and had a terrific day. Our only negative was that the jeep was very loud and it was difficult to hear Victor.

Jorge was a fantastic guide and took us to some great locations! He took pictures of our family, answered all of our questions about the region and gave us a great recommendation for lunch. My family loved exploring the area with a Tuk Tuk ride!

My husband and I enjoyed this excursion. We saw so many beautiful sites along the shoreline. This is a must-do activity when you’re in Albufeira! Jorge was the best guide and he took some great pictures of my husband and me.

Great trip, great views, great guide. Just book it!
