If fairly new to the area it is well worth going on the red, open topped sightseeing bus. It travels at a sensible speed around Albufeira, commentary supplied through free earphones. Well worth a trip.

They were 18 stops I think and it was long and slow. The points of interest were non-existent, it stopped in none of the major areas and definitely was not worth 18 euro per person. I actually would class this trip as a normal bus...More

18 euros seemed pricey compared to our experiences in London and Edinburgh. Far less commentary than expected. Lots of Portuguese music which was, initially, lovely but I became sick of the repetition. It was a lovely sunny day, the driver expertly negotiated some very tight...More

Took the tour and was very good was nice to site on top floor in the breeze. The driver was very helpful and good English. You can also use you ticket again the next day free of charge. All in all well worth it.

Pathetic doesn't even come close to describing how bad this sightseeing tour is. Save yourself the time and (significant) expense and enjoy some of the many other good things Albufeira has to offer.
