i found the website looking for things to do while in the algarve, came across 4x4 tour, knew my boyfriend would love it, gave paul a ring and were booked for the tour the next morning. paul was an excellent guide, immediately warm and friendly. we thoroughly enjoyed driving along the little unknown tracks that a hire car would fail to pass! we drove up, down and around for about an hour before stopping for a cold drink and a chat and then around another hour in the car were we drove through the wind turbines and back down to luz. reasonably priced and a great experience. thank you paul.

Booked over the phone, Paul who runs this was a great host, meets you nearby and then gets you to the jeeps. The trip was great off Tarmac most of the time and up and down some pretty steep and rough terrain. Stopped at a pretty little village for coffee, had a great time, much better than expected. Well worth the money and very enjoyable.

What can I say about this experience that hasn't already been said!! We booked the tour for our family (2 adults, 2 boys, aged 10 and 7). Paul, our tour guide was so lovely. He has a vast knowledge of the area, made us feel very welcome and was more than happy to answer any questions we had. He also supplied a booster seat for our youngest (which we'd not even thought about!) Nothing was too much trouble; we never once felt 'rushed', as you can feel on some holiday trips. The tour itself is stunningly beautiful, we saw places you would never normally see when visiting the Algarve, with breathtaking views, stopping off for well deserved refreshments in a pretty little authentic Portuguese village miles from anywhere. The pace was steady, not sure if that was down to the fact Paul chose it to be as our youngest was just 7 years old, but it was a lovely pace to absorb the scenery and take videos and photos along the way. One piece of advice I would give is not to wear white - the weather had been very dry and hot so we were covered in dust but that just added to the fun! To anyone reading this and considering the trip, it is definitely value for money and I would highly recommend. Huge thanks Paul, all the very best for the future and hope to see you again next year!!

We booked on the same day (Paul agreed to take a sunset tour) and we took out three jeeps across the fantastic Algarve countryside. They are both fun and easy to drive and our group of mixed teens and younger kids loved it. Stopping for pictures on the top of the hill as the sunset was amazing, and Paul was both friendly and knowledgeable about the local area. It might have been tougher during the hot day, but I would recommend this as a great getaway from the beaches and pools for a few hours.
