Thanks again to Paolo who is an extremely interesting guide and who took care of giving us the necessary explanations throughout the boat trip

We loved the sites but we didn’t really knew what they were because you couldn’t hear the speaker. The ride was a little bumpy.

If you don’t mind the push and shove to get on the train go for it!! The tour itself is lovely and informative.

Relaxed, pleasant trip through Faro. Some good information about the city. Very cheap and would recommend.

Wonderful and fun. Learnt a lot about the area of the town in Faro!
