A wonderful tour of Tavira and Ria Formosa Natural Park. The guide, Joao was extremely knowledgeable about the park, the fruit trees, as well as the various birds. Informative and thorough explanation of the Tavira salt pans. As someone who loves taking photos, he was also able to point out great photo ops. As if the tour was not already fabulous, he was a special touch at the end of the tour. A great Polaroid and a free Tavira guide book as souvenirs. This tour was an amazing way to explore Tavira and I highly recommend a visit when exploring the Algarve.

We loved this tour! Our guide João was delightful - very enthusiastic and proud of his region which he relished showing off. He impressed us with his detailed knowledge of the history of the area and he provided information around artisanal crafts such as salt making, tuna and octopus fishing. A highlight was the bird life and he even showed us flamingos that had started nesting on the salt flats in the last few years (one of the few benefits coming from the pandemic). He showed us very panoramic views of the estuary from Cabanas which was stunning. Finally he drove us by Tuk Tuk to a friends restaurant in Tavira where we had the best meal of our holiday. Delicious fresh fish and very friendly staff at Guarda Rio’s. Thanks for making our holiday a wonderful experience.

Maria’s tuk tuk tour was great! We were in Tavira for a few days only and wanted to explore surrounding areas in relaxed way. Maria’s tuk tuk tour took us through beautiful meandering paths in Rio Formosa park, with detailed explanation of salt flats and numerous farms. We explored towns of Fabrica, Cabanas and Cacela Velha and on return took back roads through the mountains. We passed small villages and private quintas. It was truly beautiful way to spend 2-3 hours. Highly recommend!

This is really worth doing. Take warm clothes (even if it is hot and sunny - you are whizzing around in the back of a tuk tuk so it is chilly!). We did a long trip and Joao was fantastic - v informative, told us all about things as we passed - we loved getting out into the remote areas, tiny narrow little streets and beautiful places we would never have seen if we had not done the tour. Really recommend this.

3 tours - nature and agriculture, history and gastronomy - in a 3 hours tour. Our guide let us see and taste the region he is very proud of. He knows the spots with a nice view and took the right shots. At the end we got a beautiful gift to keep good memories. Thanks to the tuk tuk you feel all the time connected to the environment and it is comfortable transport.

We had a wonderful tour with João this afternoon. Not only did we visit the two picturesque villages, but we got to see life in the rural Algarve and learn a great deal about the local culture, history and lifestyle. João's commentary was entertaining, and he happily answered all our questions. His guidedwalk in Cacela Velha was a special highlight. There is no way we could have seen so much on our own. Highly recommended.
