We used this tour on our first day so we knew what we wanted to see. The ticket was valid for 2 days priced at 13 euros. Good commentary or music when we were between places of interest. Only negative was that it didn't seem to follow a timetable so we did wait from 15 to 25 mins which was a pain in the heat!!! It was meant to run every 30 mins but we could never work out what time it was due at our nearest bus stop as it varied a lot!

I dont know why there are so many bad reviews about this! What the people who wrote them were expecting is beyond me. Its not New York or London, its Portugal!
i was in a party of 6 and everyone enjoyed it, the bus was quite busy and I didnt hear one person say anything negative. It lived up to our expectations in everyway, we may even go on again 2moro and stop of at the beach at the otherside of the marina.

With new regulations now in force concerning VAT (IVA) in Portugal,visitors should be aware of the following situation.All businesses now have to fit tills that download all transactions to the Government tax authorities no matter how small the actual amount in question.There are signs everywhere asking customers to obtain-and keep,a vat receipt for possible inspection by the authorities.This is to ensure that the retailer or trader has charged and registered the vat amount.There are instances of people leaving restaurants without their receipts and being pulled up by police and being issued with a fine.This is a Government initiative to curb the amount of un-notified cash transactions which are prevalent in the tourism industry.All credit card transactions are already automatically copied to the Government.

It was nice driving around the Algarve area. To bad that there weren't really stops where you should get off since there is nothing to really visit.
It a trip through the landscape with at this point: a nice view off how a massive amount of hotels are being build and how it will ruin the looks of the landscape.
