Am ersten Tag haben wir uns eine Olivenbaumplantage angeschaut. Dort haben wir viele Informationen über die Herstellung von Olivenöl bekommen und durften verschiedene Sorten kosten. (...)
Am dritten Tag haben wir mit Filipe und fünf weiteren Touristen eine "walkingtour" in Sant Katharina gemacht. Dort liefen wir über Hügel und Felder und sahen typische Pflanzen wie Olivenbäume, Korkbäume, Feigen, Johannesbrotbäume und vieles mehr. Die Aussicht war sehr schön.
Filipe war sehr charmant und konnte uns viel über die Gegend erzählen. Wir sind sehr froh, dass wir die Touren mit ihm gemacht haben. Wir können die Touren sehr empfehlen.
A once in a lift time experience was the Tuk Tuk trip around Travira. We took the 60 minute tour and it was much longer and very informative. Our guide Philipe could not tell us enough about the area and its customs. His knowledge about the history was brilliant. The advantage of the Tuk Tuk to get around was fantastic. It is small and maneuverable.
Tuk Tuk Tavira also has walking tours, but I couldn't see a separate place to do a review. I think this may be a fairly new program by the company so hasn't been set up in TripAdvisor yet. The tours are Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings at 10:30 and offer three different areas of Tavira. I believe that these tours are all guided by Joaquin (he is the only one we had). We thoroughly enjoyed these entertaining and informative tours. Joaquin is very proud of Tavira and very knowledgeable. He is Portuguese and his English is very good. These tours are free, but definitely deserve a generous tip. Would certainly recommend these tours to anyone visiting Tavira.
Enjoyed the very organised outing via a local tuk tuk driven by Filipe, he went the long way round from our hotel to Tavira to avoid the traffic and pointed out all the local sight seeing stuff, such as salt flats, local fishing, churches etc, his local information was great, our lad George sat up front with him which he thought was great fun. we spent a couple of hours in Tavira shoping and then he took us back to Cabanas. well done Filipe, we all enjoyed it very much.
