Alsafari Tours, Albufeira

4.6
Off-Road Tour · Nature / Wildlife Tour
Alsafari Tours whisks you away from the busy coast and takes you into a very different Algarve - an Algarve of tiny villages, white-washed houses, orange and lemon groves, shepherds watching over their flocks, and life lived at a slow and easy pace. Traveling on quiet country roads as well as off road up hills and down valleys, the Jeep Tour is probably the best way to discover the essence of the Algarve. At stops along the way, admire the scenery, smell the scent of fresh lemon leaves crushed between your fingers, learn the secrets of harvesting cork from the bark of cork oak trees, and sample some local produce such as Carob liquer or Medronho - a very potent local licor distilled from Arbustus berries. Knowledgeable guides describe the Algarve's customs and traditions in a fun, engaging way. The tour route varies according to the time of year and the interests of the passengers and can include a stop at the beautiful Vigário waterfall near the village of Alte, time to explore the village itself, and stops along the way at the highest points in the central Algarve. The company offers full- and half-day tours and will pick you up at your central Algarve accommodation.

  • Definitely worth the money. Tour guide was so knowledgeable and the tour itself was great. Seeing the countryside and knowing the story behind the area and the nature contained was an incredible privilege. Definitely worth the €30. Would definitely recommend if you want to see a separate world to the tourism and consumerism of Albufeira
  • Had Marco, did the 9 till 1 journey. 2nd May 2019. This is incredible. Absolutely amazing journey, have Marco drive you. Maybe not suitable for children tbh or anyone with severe disabilities but honestly the best time of our holiday. Never laughed so much. Was $30 euros each. If you can, please please do this. Even tipped Marco. He made the experience. Never had so much fun. Seriously do this. Radical ride 😍
  • Tour was amazing, picked us up from the hotel and dropped us back, I would recommend
  • The tour was AMAZING!! Marco was our driver and we had time of our lives! He did not look at the clock, he was stopping every so often, had many surprises, was very informative and funnyfunny. We saw so many spots. The road was great. Was not too scary but not calm either.we had 2 kids (under 4yo) with us and they loved it too. Marco was stopping to show and give us all the fruits and herbs. And he was giving flowers to little girl that was with us to keep her happy. We had no idea what to expect. We didn't expect it to be so great!! We really recommend it to everyone. And make sure you get Marco.
  • If you need a change of pace from lying on a beach all day, this is a great option. The tour picks you up and it is a fun ride. You basically go through more rural area of Algarve, see some cork trees, drink some fire water, taste some honey, have a nice lunch, get in a little swim time and head back home. The tour guide encourages standing in the jeep as we go through bumpy roads. It is a blast. The distillery / honey place is super small. He just grabs a key from behind a potted plant and lets you in, the goes over the process for making alcohol. We have as couple shots of fire water and it feels like a party. I read a negative review about them pushing the sale of honey and alcohol, but I did not get that impression. You can buy it (the guide sells it and puts the money in a tin for the owner), but I would say it's more of an afterthought than a sales pitch. The scenery is beautiful and the guide is entertaining.
