Andre is a very nice guy , fluent in English luckily for us . The Tuc Tuc experience is a different way to go site seeing of the beautiful inner working of the countryside. You get to see little back streets that even cats and dogs would find hard to navigate . Louis at the old mill was a bundle of knowledge on the working of the mill and all the Portuguese people we met were so friendly . Excellent day out . Put your sun lotion on , altho, there's good cover with the canvas roofI suggest have a light jacket or top because on the way back is a bit of a drive and can be a little chilly with the wind whistling past for so long , just in case .

Super fun trip through the interior of the Algarve. We have seen everything in the description and in consultation with the driver you could make extra stops or see other things than a standard route for everyone. Andre is a very friendly man who takes the time to show things and to have a drink / swim break. All in all definitely recommended to see and learn something about the interior!
