Visit the charming Portuguese town and its nearby villages in a very original way with this Tavira Tuk Tuk Tour. You'll visit Tavira Castle, Santa Luzia and Cabanas and Cacela Velha. Let's go!
Tavira Tuk Tuk Tour
When you book, you can choose between different routes. For all of them, we'll meet at the time you choose in Rua Gonçalo Velho in Tavira. From there we'll start a tuk tuk tour so that you can discover the Portuguese city and its nearby villages in a different way - one of the most popular means of transport for tourists!
Tavira Tour (1 hour)
The tuk tuk tour of Tavira will start visiting the famous salt mines of the Portuguese city. Then we'll go into the narrow streets of the city to explore every corner of its historical centre, including the Praca da Republica and the church of Sao Francisco. The tour will continue to the Church of Misericordia, which is considered the best example of a Renaissance building in the Algarve! We'll also see the remains that are still standing of the Tavira Castle in the parish of Santiago. Get your camera ready!
Santa Luzia Tour (1 hour 30 minutes)
If you choose this route, we'll travel by tuk tuk to the salt mines of Tavira. You'll be surprised by the view! Furthermore, we'll pass by one of the most important points of the city: Praca da Republica square. Then we'll visit a nearby fishing village: Santa Luzia. Did you know that it is known for being the capital of the octopus? On the way back to Tavira, there will be a stop at the oldest olive tree in the world.
Cabanas de Tavira and Cacela Velha Tour (2 hours 30 minutes)
On this route, we'll get to know two villages very close to Tavira. First, we'll pass by Cabanas de Tavira, where you'll have 15 minutes of free time to admire the Fort of São João da Barra and the church of Nossa Senhora do Mar. Next, we'll visit Cacela Velha, where you can admire the islands of the Ria Formosa Natural Park, a natural wonder!
Tavira Tour + Tasting (1 hour 30 mintues)
We'll get into the tuk tuk to follow a route around Tavira. During the tour, we'll see by the Convento das Bernardas, the city's old prison, and the church of Sao Sebastao.
