    Opgehaald met een grote bus aan het hotel, en rijden naar het verzamelpunt om over te stappen in een andere bus. Een veel te grootte groep voor deze trip. Daardoor veel te weinig (vrije) tijd om de rondleiding goed af te werken (in verschillende talen). Veel te veel uren op de bus , om uiteindelijk op de plaatsten zo goed als geen vrije tijd over te houden om iets te zien. De laatste plaats/stop is niet echt een meerwaarde aan de trip. Op terug weg langs te veel hotels om de gasten af te zetten en zeer laat na nog een overstap aan ons hotel aan te komen. Wij vinden dit zijn geld niet waard .

    The pick up coach was 30 minutes late not informed it was going to be late and fobbed off with the excuse about a coach Had an accident the driver then drove like a maniac making us all feel very unsafe!!
    Then the rest of the morning was rushed Faro only had enough time to look quickly at the Cathedral the next stop Olhio was a complete waste of time gave you enough time to look at the market which really was not interesting and then straight back to the coach would have seen enough just driving through the next 2 stops were much better although the last stop 1 1/2 hours would have been long enough and another 1/2 hour in Faro the wifi was not working and we had to sit right at the back very uncomfortable and hot trouble getting out of the seat as so cramped only fit for kids?
    The Guide got off the coach leaving us behind as it took everybody so long to get off😡🙄 struggling to catch up and we are fast walkers would not recommend this tour especially after such a good tour a few days previous

    This was the worst tour I have ever experienced. We were joined to the tour late, the tour guide was rude to us and she made absolutely no effort to keep couples together on the bus by putting singles together. We were two couples that got split with other singles. The tour guide could have asked two of the singles to double up to keep us together but did not. She spent more time talking to the driver than talking about the sights and scenery. When we arrived at an interest stop all she did was drop us off and everyone was on their own. I was never so glad for a tour to çome to an end as I was this tour. I would never recommend the East Algarve tour from this company to anyone. It was a ripoff. They need to get rid of that tour guide. I was unable to split the star in half for the rating. One star is too much!

    While the idea of the trip is good the actual trip was not that great. The tour guide did not speak in english much and often made comments about sites after we had passed them.

    I found the stops too long.... It was nice to be able to see those places, and get a sense of them. The long lunch was also a nice experience -- and the food excellent. But that long lunch combined with the frequent and lengthy stops at each place made for a day that could have been shortened by 1/3 to 1/4, without reducing the effectiveness and pleasure of the experience. On another point: my 'guestimation' was that our group was about 50/50 English and German. What was a comment among the anglophones was that it was clear the German language portion was significantly longer than the English. The history I did hear was informative. But it left me wondering what was being said in German that took so much more time.
