If fairly new to the area it is well worth going on the red, open topped sightseeing bus. It travels at a sensible speed around Albufeira, commentary supplied through free earphones. Well worth a trip.

we booked the trip and received two days for the price of one, they had to be used on consecutive days which we used the first day to see where we could visit and the second to see the sites.

They were 18 stops I think and it was long and slow. The points of interest were non-existent, it stopped in none of the major areas and definitely was not worth 18 euro per person. I actually would class this trip as a normal bus route for locals.

A very low key approach and very very difficult to find pick up points. We called at a couple ticket places to purchase but did not do so because they could not provide us with a map as they only had display copies. The tour itself was interesting and took you quite far outside the city itself which was fine... More

18 euros seemed pricey compared to our experiences in London and Edinburgh. Far less commentary than expected. Lots of Portuguese music which was, initially, lovely but I became sick of the repetition. It was a lovely sunny day, the driver expertly negotiated some very tight bends and the seats were comfortable.

Took the tour and was very good was nice to site on top floor in the breeze. The driver was very helpful and good English. You can also use you ticket again the next day free of charge. All in all well worth it.

My partner and I went on this today. It was €18 per person and the tickets are valid for 24 hours. It was a nice way to see the sights and spots you'd never see because you are ground level. We had toured the old town via foot and it's a beautiful way to lose a few hours. The commentary... More

Pathetic doesn't even come close to describing how bad this sightseeing tour is. Save yourself the time and (significant) expense and enjoy some of the many other good things Albufeira has to offer.
