We booked a trip from Rocha Brava to Ferragudo - an excellent and different route in both directions. We had about 4 hrs in Ferragudo which was long enough for a walk, coffee then lunch by the harbour side, overall an excellent day out. On the way home we stopped at a superb viewpoint for 15 mins which really made the day.
The Tuk Tuks are well constructed originally from Thailand but modified to run on electricity so very quiet and eco friendly.
As with all Tuk Tuks they are small with cramped seating and with 6 on board there isn't much space. But you could always take a bus - if you wanted to miss out on the experience. I'd not want to be in one for more than about an hour though!
Vasco and his wife gave lots of information en route and on arrival in Ferragudo.
Overall an excellent day out and extremely good value.
Vasco and his dear wife have made my short stay in Portimao quite a positive experience, especially after the local bus company EVA comitted a fraud by selling tickets for a bus that never showed up. Make sure you contact Allgav Tuk Tuk to enjoy your stay there for a honest and very kind service.
My husband and I booked the tuk tuk to take us from Carvoeiro to Ferragudo for dinner one evening. Vasco picked us up at the agreed time and place and collected us after dinner. Vasco is absolutely delightful and the service he runs is not only cost-effective (10 euros each return) but friendly and flexible. Take a sweater if you are taking a trip on the tuk tuk in the evening as the sides are open, however Vasco informed us that he will be putting roll-up covers on the sides. If you have any mobility issues it would be difficult to get on and off, however for the able-bodied it is a truly unique way to travel, eco-friendly and a far better alternative to taking a taxi. At the moment the company offers a pick-up and collection service to locations but also guided tours and wine tasting trips. Well worth giving it a go.
