    As frequent travellers to the Algarve over many years we do not tend to go on trips. This however caught our eye and we decided to give it a try. You can book at reception.

    Well we are so glad we did. It was truly a great day out and excellent value for money. The day started with a Port wine tasting next to Silves castle which was truly magnificent. We were then left to our own devices for about 3 hours. No problem there as there is plenty to do and see in Silves and loads of really good inexpensive restaurants. We then returned to the Tuk Tuk and were taken to a small vineyard where the owner showed us around giving us a detaied explanation of the whole procedure and then treated us to a generous tasting.

    All in all a great day out.

    Thanks, Tom - can you give some idea of how much it costs? Also, does this tour only run on certain days of the week?

    It is 25 Euros per head which we felt was very good value.
    I think that the Silves trip runs most Tuesdays.

    This October we went on a Tuk Tuk tour of Lagos which was excellent. You pick it up opposite the fish market by the waterway (signed). 10 Euros pp for 4 people and 80 mins. Went all around the old town, then into the new town, then to the cliffs by the lighthouse looking over the amazing rock formations and beaches you usually see by boat. Great commentary too. Really good way to see the area and discover lots of new things about it.
