About
If you are in the Algarve, one of the things we suggest is a guided bike tour in Ria Formosa. Our tour starts in the city of Faro and we cycle along the Ria Formosa Natural Park in direction to the Island of Faro. Cycling in a comfortable bike accompanied by a guide, we explore the diversity of the surrounding landscapes with plenty of time for sightseeing and for taking photos of the Algarve. This cycle route has many interesting places such as the saltpans where we stop for birdwatching and relaxation. We pass close to the Airport of Faro and take some time to contemplate the marshlands of the Ria Formosa and its numerous channels and small islets. Finally we arrive to the Praia de Faro where you'll have time to relax at the beach or go for a refreshing drink in one of the terraces while contemplating the sea. It's now time to start our journey back to Faro and we cycle along this coastal route looking for all the pleasant surprises that the Ria Formosa can provide.

Happy the let customers wait for hours
May 2021
I rented a bike, but the office was closed all afternoon and staff apparently just shows up at closing, despite advertising 9-18 opening hours. I had to chase them down and then wait for forever before I could return my bike. Not how I want to spend my vacation - waiting around for people happily taking your money and then not bothering to man their office.
