Jeep Safari for Kids

by AvlorFan

Hi, Can anyone let me know if kids aged 4&6 can go on the Jeep Safaris. Would be have child seats for them? We never went on one on our last visit to Alvor, but would like to try them this time. We were hoping to go the end of April, if any one can recommend any Safari company with prices and days of trips it would be great.

In my opinion Jeep Safari even in the Algarve can be very tiered for children age 4/6 as they start around 9 am till about 16pm, full day on dirty roads. The jeeps can use boosters or baby seats as it is compulsory in Portugal for the children’s in the cars.
The best way to book a Jeep safari, is to get information at the Hotel reception or if you travel with a tour operator, with the rep.
Any way Jeep safari is a great day out in the Algarve truly recommended.

Travel Tips for Alvor

The Cock of Barcelos

by Balam

At a Banquet given by a rich Landowner in Barcelos the silver was stolen and one of the guests was accused of the theft. He was tried by the court and found guilty.
In spite of overwhelming evidence against him he still protested his innocence. The magistrate granted the man a final chance to prove his case. Seeing a Cock in a basket nearby he said "If i am innocent the cock will crow" The cock crowed and the prisoner was allowed to go free.

The Cockerel has now become a symbol of Portugal

Eating With The Pharoes

by Balam about Pyramide Steak House

This great restaurant is modelled after an Egyptian tomb with paintings on the walls all done in an Egyptian manner. The food was fantastic we had the mixed grill and there was plenty of it. The most memorable bit of our visit to this resaraunt was my Father. We were sat in a room that had all tiled walls and my dad had to make constant remarks about how we were eating in a toilet. I suppose you had to be there really but it made it a most memorable visit and we will be going again next time we are in Alvor. The mixed Grill is Fantastic

The Home Of Elvis

by Balam about China Garden

Our first encounter with this restaurant came after walking up R Antonio Jose de Almeida one night and seeing the silhouette of Elvis Presley with one hand pointing out and his knee shaking.
As we neared Elvis he stopped his stage act as he turned around, looked at us and immediately changed in to a Chinese lad, who then gave us a menu for China Garden Restaurante.
Well after this encounter we just had to go.
It's a nice restaurant but not large so booking in busy times would be advised (as in all restaurants in Alvor)

Food was good and great value. Of course they have the usual set menus and a wide choice of dishes. They have a number of special offers including 5.90 E for a starter, main course, Fried rice or chips.
Or for 20.00 E for 2 people (which is what we had)
half peking duck with pancakes or 2 spring rolls or 2 chicken soups.
Prawn Crackers
Sweet sour chicken or sizzling beef.
Chicken Curry
2 fried rice
2 ice cream
0.375L house wine or 2 soft drinks

Welsh bar/cafe

by Balam

There is a Welsh bar/cafe in Alvor, it is on Rue Pedro Alvares Cabrai the road that runs parralel to Rue dr fredrico mendes (the main st running down to old fishmarket) about half way down.
Look out for the Red Dragon

sadly this cafe has now closed down and is up for sale (oct 2008)

Watching the Fishermen

by Balam

I just love to sit and watch the world go by but if on holiday in a fishing village i love to watch fishermen. I don't know what it is, weather it's tending their nets, sorting out the catch or just painting the boat it's just so interesting. In Alvor most of the Fishermen are down at the new fisherman's huts and market but you can still see the old men cleaning and filleting their catch near the old fish market.

See the video of an old fisherman cutting the fins of his catch

Two fishermen cleaning their catch (Video)
