“Horror of Horrors”
Reviewed October 2, 2011

Crazy transfer driver drove @ break neck speeds of 140 km/p/h using mobile phone, I vomited. Duped by promo material -Fee for attraction not included or mentioned, time/distance not mentioned. Reported crazy drives eratic driving to rep & crazy driver advised he had to meet tight schedules etc. What about my safety & health? Rip off, hire a car instead.

“never go with 'follow me' tours”
Reviewed September 24, 2011

booked three trips. went to loule market, ok. went on 'foto' tour inland, absolute rubbish. picked up at 7.10am, before breakfast started serving so 'pack up' breakfast. spent 2.5hours picking up from other hotels, probably 20, then went for 20 minutes for a coffee stop of an hour at guess where, loule! remainder of trip reasonably interesting but then finished off with another 2.5 hours dropping off at hotels. if you wish to spend 12 hours on a coach, five of which are doing an inspection of the algarve hotels, then this is the one for you!!!! final grand effort from this lot was to cancel our third trip and offer us a replacement on the day we went home! not for us, or anyone else with any sense.

“Torture!!”
Reviewed September 14, 2011

Just don't do it! Use money you would spend on tours by hiring a hire car and sight see yourself!

Takes 2-3 hours for whole day tours to pick everyone up in the Algarve before tour even starts, then of course same amount of time to drop them back. Half day tours your looking at 1-2 hours before tour starts.

Tour guides are ok, can be a bit dull.
Places your taken to - not really worth it, the "Foto tour" was not good for taking photos, were just given overloaded information about the types of trees around :( BORING!!

Lisbon tour, not worth it. Picked up at 5:40am, took 2 hours to do pick ups, got about 4 hours in total in Lisbon, not enough to fill that time in the area we were taken too. Streets full of pushy beggars and rude cafe staff. The town itself didn't even make up for it in attractions or landmarks. We got back to Algarve area at around 6 thinking we'd be back in Alvor by 8, no it was 9pm almost missed dinner being served at our hotel. A couple on our coach had a similar tour the next day with an early start and long journey to Spain, felt so sorry for them. We also cancelled one of our trips, did 4 in total with Follow Me, and regretted each of them.

Honest, honest opinion, don't bother!!

“Dreadful pick-up/drop-off schedule”
Reviewed August 31, 2011

We stayed at the Praia Sol, Vilamoura and did three trips. The first to Loule market was fine as we were the last pick up and the first dropped off. The other two trips to Portimao and Silves & Monchique, with the last in particular, were totally exhausting, purely because of the many pick-ups en route from all over the Algarve. A half day tour pick up for us to Monchique left at 12.15 and arrived back at our hotel at 8.00pm. It was 2 hours before we finished picking up passengers and set off to Silves - way too long. The guides themselves were very good and we have no complaint. Also the coaches were good. We thought the cost of the trips was fair. But sack the scheduler.
