We are staying in the area close to loule and this was offered as a half day trip by TUI at just under €20.
We had a coach to the location that picked and dropped off at the same location. The guide was great, kept us informed of locations along the way in her very good if not sometimes a little funny words. The driver did get lost on route to another hotel collection so the journey was quite long, some hotels had and hour and a half journey with kids which may not have been good. When we got to the location we wandered to a market I believe they call a gypsy market. It was ok but nothing but the same stuff every few stalls. A lot of Cork which is popular in Portugal, shoes, clothes and jewellery. After this we took a stroll into the main part of town and this was much better. The buildings were lovely and the walk is flat and nice to do. We found an amazing meat/fish inside market filled with Port and cheese, bread, and was beautiful and worth a look in. Over all it was marketed as a place to see the gypsy market, but I would honestly miss the gypsy market and go straight to the main part of the town. The people are lovely and it is a good place to buy souvenirs and pop for some lunch in a nice cafe.
