I screwed up and booked the hotel with the same name but in a different town. The coach driver took us anyway after dropping everyone. Superb.

Especially when the travel company I booked the flight and accommodation with had been dreadful - you guys saved the day.

Brilliant taxi service. Wygnner (driver) and Carlos (office) couldn't do enough to help my elderly parents in Portugal. They went above and beyond and kept me up to date in the UK as they knew I was worried. Book this service if you are in the Algarve - they are so kind and professional.
