About
A typical coach tour of the Algarve’s countryside can feel remote and observational. On this jeep safari, enjoy an intimate experience of rural culture, as the off-road vehicle accesses less frequented locations with ease. Visit an ancient castle, explore local villages and orange orchards, then brave a traditional firewater distillery. Choose a morning or afternoon excursion to suit your schedule, with hotel pickup and drop-off included.

We done the sunset safari. It was absolutely unbelievable. Credit goes to out tour guide Marco! What a credit he is to this company. He literally made our night so special. Food and wine excellent. We meet the most fantastic donkey! Definitely a must do! But definitely ask for Marco! He made this night for us! Xx

Lot of fun with an enthusiasm guide!
Oct 2020 • Couples
The whole trip was a great experience i will not forget. Our guide Marco made sure we had a laugh throughout the tour. Full of humor and enthusiasm, he introduced us to the Portuguese riches, the landscape where he likes to make shortcuts every now and then. Whether it is uphill or downhill that does not matter to him. We tasted fruits and smelled herbs. We even met his great friends Baltasar and Pavarotti. I can talk about it endlessly. In a word AMAZING!

Thank you!

10/10 recommended tour when visiting Albufeira!
Sep 2020 • Couples
Highly recommend tour!!!

Hugo was our guide and he was absolutely amazing! We got to try all of the local herbs and fruits grown in the wild, see the local towns, and look over some beautiful views. The pomegranates were definitely the sweetest we had ever tasted. The history of Portugal was also very interesting, we definitely learned a lot in the 3 hours that we were in the Jeep.

Hugo’s hospitality was above and beyond what we were expecting. We let him know that we hadn’t tried any local food in Portugal, and outside of the tour hours he took us to a beautiful local tapas. He also showed us off the beaten path spots to take pictures that we wouldn’t have been able to find ourselves.

He really made our day by going that extra mile.

10/10 would recommend doing this your if you can.

Fantastic experience: totally recommended
Sep 2020 • Family
We learned a lot on various topics, such as everyday life in the Algarve, local products, all the while embracing wonderful views and towns. Making two 20-minute stops at a local café and natural water source, as well as short stops at eyecatchers, the trip had a perfectly balanced program.
Due to the pandemic, we travelled in smaller groups, which added to the personal approach of the excursion.

What an Adventure filled with Local Culture
We were picked up outside our Hotel to begin a half day Safari, it was a huge open top Jeep which looked more like The Scooby Bus! There was a great crowd in the Jeep and we all entertained each other. Our guide took us up and up and up on crazy roads until we reached the highest mountain, and what a view amazing 😉 we visited ancient monuments, the countryside seeing hunting dogs, little old Portuguese communities, I learnt if the houses had blue around they came from fisherman and yellow around they came from farmers 👩‍🌾 The distillery farm was fascinating also The Honey 🍯 so good we bought 2 Jars. We made many stops along the journey, our lunch was set out in a fascinating village and it was great. Tasty soup and rolls, followed by Piri Piri Chicken or Fish with Salad and plentiful chips, as much Wine as you wanted to drink 🍷 There was a great double act between the Batman and his amazing Donkey ‘Baltimo’ They unbelievably spoke you 1 another 👩‍🌾. We thoroughly enjoyed this trip and totally recommend it, it cost us 35 euro each and we booked outside the hotel saving an extra 10 euros each, thanks for the journey 😃

Fantastic Experience.
Jan 2020
Half Day Tour - January 2020.

We were picked up from right outside our hotel in the jeep. There was already 1 couple on there, and it was a short drive to pick up the next 2 guests. Then off into the countryside and hills.
Our driver, Cuckoo, was FANTASTIC. There was 4 english speakers, and 2 portugeuse speakers in the back, and Cuckoo did a fantastic job during the tour, switching between the 2 languages.
Unfortunately, I think we chose the only day where the Algarve weather wasn't on our side, and so some of the views and stops were just not possible. That said, Cuckoo made sure we didn't feel like we had missed anything, painting wonderful images in our minds with his descriptions.
His off road driving was also excellent, with just the right amount of "Are we really going down THAT hill?"
The stop at the small distillery was a treat. Tasting the Firewater while keeping a smile on your face was the challenge set down, and failure meant another shot of this stuff. A great laugh watching the other people force a smile under Cuckoo's watchful eye HAHA.
Last stop, the waterfall.!! Again, we had a bad weather day, so couldn't quite take full advantage, but it is easy to imagine jumping in on a good day.

Really worth it, learned A LOT, and would definitely do it again. In fact, we would probably go for the full day tour next time.

Top tour!
Being off season, we were lucky enough to be the only couple on the tour which made it very personalized. Our guide (Hugo?)was so friendly, knowledgeable and has such passion for his job and country. Travel is always a great educator and this tour was definitely enriching. A great way to get off the beaten path and explore a beautiful part of the Algarve region and learn more about the locals and their way of life. Highly recommended!

Had such a great day on this tour our guide Thomas was such a mind of information and so funny and friendly we visited the loveliest little villages and orange groves. We had the absolute pleasure of watching the sun set over the mountains. All and all it was a lovely day and well worth the money...

Excellent
Great trip with Paulo who was a wonderful guide.
Includes various on road & off road tracks through fields, farms & villages. Some of the old buildings on narrow out of the way village streets are well worth seeing. Lots of opportunities to see oranges, grapes, pomegranates, carob, lemons etc on the trees/bushes.
Stops in a village for 30 minutes where you can buy a drink & pastry if you wish or just wander around - no pressure from anyone.
Later on you stop at a distillery (nothing too impressive - about the size of a double garage but in a nice rural location) where there's a 10 minute explanation of the process & the opportunity to purchase/sample the "firewater" (€10) or local honey (€5) - no hard sell from the staff though.
Our jeep had 7 people which seemed about right.
Beware of low branches if you are stood up - you have to look out as there are quite a lot on some parts of the trip & you won't necessarily get a warning from the driver. The drivers know the tracks & only speed up when safe to do so, I think there were only 2 occasions where they possibly tried to scare us with increased speed or late braking but it WASN'T dangerous - they were just adding an element of excitement to the journey.
Would definitely book with this company again.
