Yes, quite bumpy and it seemed to go down quite a few uninteresting roads. (OK - so perhaps that was necessary to get to all the interesting bits.) The multi-lingual narration seemed to be a bit light on the English version but it did sound...More

This is the perfect way to see the highlights of Tavira with small kids (or elderly persons) on a hot day. It's a hop-on hop-off system so you can easily get off the train at one of the stops, do some sightseeing, and get back...More

Extremely bumpy and uncomfortable as most of the trip is over cobbled streets. Yes, you see the streets of Tavira and the salt beds but there is no real explanation about the different buildings or places the train passes. I would not bother again.

This must be the best 4 euros you would ever spend! As most of the streets are cobbled it is a little bumpy at times. There is a multi lingual commentary which is a little hard to hear. However the tour was excellent, visiting the...More

This is a great way to see Tavira. Unfortunately, in March there was no commentary to explain the sites, and the train did have a long stop while it picked up passengers at a hotel, but Tavira is picturesque enough to make this an enjoyable...More
