          Absolutely worth it!
          The views were amazing and the winery stop with the wine tasting was fabulous. Our driver Loes was the best and so was the young man at the winery. We highly recommend it!

          Our driver Luis was exceptional! He was funny, friendly and very knowledgeable. We had a great lunch, drank fire water, tasted local honey…can’t say enough about this tour!

          Algarve a la carte tour
          We booked the Algarve a la carte tour through the Cerro mar garden Hotel representative in Albufeira. Our tour guide was Tom. He was absolutely amazing! His knowledge of the various sites and destinations was very impressive. As we drove from one town/site to the other, Tom would give us in-depth details ( historical, cultural, geographical) and that’s what made the tour so interesting and fun. Tom’s good sense of humour was an added plus to the whole tour. I must admit that standing near the enormous cliffs at Cape st. Vincent and Sagres was the highlight of our tour.

          Victor is best safari tour guide!
          Victor is without doubt the best tour guide for this experience. Funny, knowledgeable and all round lovely chap. The tour was brilliant and our son enjoyed the jeep ride. Perfect for all ages and a brilliant way to see in Victor's words...his garden. Thank you for a great day.

          Good value
          This trip was excellent as you were taken to see various views around Algarve, as well as the pottery and wine tasting visits. The 1.5 hr stop for lunch was great with a good choice of a variety of eating places. The vehicle was comfortable and Tom, the guide, very friendly and informative.

          I recommend it to anyone who comes on holiday to the Algarve.
          An unforgettable day, without a doubt, I recommend everyone do it. Our guide Nelson made this excursion really special, very friendly, very helpful, and clarified all our doubts throughout the day. I recommend it to anyone who comes on holiday to Algarve. Thanks.

          Amazing tour of the Algarve
          We went on a full day jeep tour of Monchiquue in the Algarve with a knowledgeable, humorous and humble tour guide Ricardo, who went above and beyond to give us the best possible trip.

          Must do. Brilliant!
          Absolutely brilliant!! I would say this is a must do! Our guide Ricardo was excellent, very friendly and was able to clearly pass on lots of great information about the algarve culture, cuisine, bio diversity, geography and history. From kids to adults we all had great fun and adventure in the 4x4 off road jeeps. The food was great and views are just stunning. Highly recommend 👌 made a great day. Thank you!

          Great experience with an amazing guide!
          I went on a Jeep tour with some friends and we had a blast! Probably one of the best days of our trip. Thank you Nelson for being such a great guide!!! One of my friends accidentally fell, and Nelson was 5***** in helping her and making sure she was ok. He also made the trip super fun!! The tour was stunning. We absolutely loved it and recommend it!

          Amazing experience!
          Wow. What a great day! Our guides - Luis and George - were very knowledgeable, patient and professional. Always willing to share their history and culture, with a great sense of humour. The hike through the valleys was incredible. We spent 20 minutes waiting for a connecting ride at a popular diner. Great service and a cold refreshment! We then drove to Ferragudo for lunch. Excellent selection of vendors. We ate an awesome assortment of seafood. We then drove to the marina and boarded our boat to view the Benagil grottoes. The driver and Luis had great chemistry and provided a top notch tour of the amazing caves. We felt very safe and enjoyed our time there. Would definitely do this tour again.

          Algarve Discovery: Jeep Safari with Portitours & the Wonderful Luis!
          Don't miss the Jeep Safari #1 in Algarve with Portitours! Our guide, Luis, was a wealth of knowledge about Portugal's history and culture, especially when it came to the Algarve. His passion for his country was infectious, and his humor kept everyone entertained throughout the ride. While the weather wasn't perfect, we learned about the importance of rain for the Algarve's ecosystem, and it was heartwarming to see how much the locals appreciated it. This unique perspective, along with Luis's insights, made the tour unforgettable.

          A great and very interesting experience, definitely worth it
          A fantastic experience overall thanks to some great guys who clearly love and feel proud of being from the algarve. Very polite and had a great crack with them especially one ‘chicken George’. A fantastic group of people who were along with me too. The guides went into such great detail about everything to do with the tour. Would really recommend if you’re visiting the algarve!

          Ups and downs
          Our hike was just over 3 KM although advertised at 6 KM. The part of the trail we completed was spectacular so very disappointed in not completing what we were hoping to do. The reason given was ability levels in the group. Perhaps some offering of this activity for different ability levels would help. More than an hour stop at a tourist lunch location didn't seem to fit with an athletic activity day. The boat tour was spectacular and the driver seemed to know the caves well. Had to book over a week in advance for the space on this tour so it's too bad to not complete the hike we really wanted to do and no time left to rebook.

        We took the Flavours & Traditions tour. Wonderful to see the beautiful countryside and small towns. Our guide and driver, Luis, was really great: friendly, very knowledgeable, excellent driver. The cork factory tour in Sao Bras de Alportel and the small museum of castle ruins in Salir were very interesting. Highly recommend the tour.

        We started out in a small group in a small van - 8 persons - from Portimao.
        Our first stop was to the “local cake shop” consisted of ushering the 2 bus groups (about 18 people) into the small shop and offering us a broken piece of 2 types of cookies. The only explanation from the “guide” was to read out the labels of the various types of bakery items that were for sale. The description in the program made it sound like we would have an opportunity to taste the “3 types of cakes baked there”.
        Our second stop was a cork museum. We were rushed through for some reason. Not enough time to wander about.
        Next, we arrived at the cork factory. Our group merged with other groups. This enlarged group was too large to fit into the small viewing room to watch a video. Too crowded. The tour guide seemed quite knowledgeable but she had no sound system so many of us didn’t hear much of what she said.
        We drove to an area with restaurants for lunch. Our guide was hesitant to recommend a good place to eat and then disappeared...?
        We then visited a small museum to view an excavated Arab castle. Here, we wandered around with no guidance. Very strange.
        We looked forward to visiting the large agricultural estate as advertised in the itinerary. We didn't do this at all. Instead we stopped at a closed summer park where we wandered around taking a few photos of a dried up waterway that apparently is a great place for families to come in the summer.
        Our guide was pleasant - Nelson - but did not provide commentary along the way. There were 2 people in the front of the van with him, 3 others seated behind and 3 more seated at the back. The only people who heard anything that he said were the 2 folks in the front set. It would have helped if there was a microphone. He made absolutely no effort to include the rest of the party in any conversation. He admitted he did not know the area!
        At each stop all the drivers ( 3 vans grouped together now) gathered for a smoke and unless someone actually approached them to ask a question they tended not to interact with the people. The only real interaction that Nelson had with us was to encourage us “to hurry up and move along “ at the stops along the way.
        Overall, we were very disappointed in this tour and others were too. Provided feedback to our excursion representative - Claudia. She apologized, forwarded our comments to Portitours, and indicated she would stop selling this tour. We were not offered any compensation.
