      Terrible unethical company
      We booked this company on Expedia to pick us up from the Porto airport. My husband and I are elderly and have trouble handling luggage on a train or bus. Well, when we arrived at the airport no one showed up to meet us. I called the emergency number and the woman said to double check in the arrivals hall. We went to each person holding a sign and asked if they were there for us as well. No luck. When I called the emergency number again (and I called multiple times) no one answered. I have asked Expedia to intervene and get a refund for me but this company won't refund the money. To me, this is basically stealing. No service at all but they still charged us. Don't use this company. If you want a private transfer from the airport ask your hotel to arrange it.

      Seville
      I was expecting a bit more of a guided tour. As I have mobility issues, the guide walked much faster than I was able. Once I understood the plan, I had a great time.

      Never use this shuttle service!!!
      Never use this shuttle service! I recently had an incredibly frustrating experience with MTS Global, and I feel compelled to share my ordeal. I booked a round-trip shared shuttle service from Lisbon, Portugal airport to my hotel. The troubles began upon our arrival. Our plane encountered delays due to airport logistics, causing a domino effect on the subsequent processes. After finally reaching the designated area for the shuttle, there was no sign of the driver. When we inquired with a representative from MTS Global, we were shocked to be labeled as a "no show" because the driver had allegedly waited for over an hour. This was far from the truth. Our plane was delayed, and we went through a lengthy process of deboarding, transportation, luggage retrieval, and security checks. Despite explaining our situation, the representative was unhelpful and even refused to contact the company on our behalf. Stranded without phone reception, we had no choice but to take a taxi to our hotel. The lack of professionalism and understanding exhibited by MTS Global is truly disheartening. A reliable shuttle service should account for unforeseen circumstances, especially when dealing with airport transportation. In summary, my experience with MTS Global was marred by poor customer service, false accusations, and an overall lack of reliability. I strongly advise against using this company for your transportation needs. There are undoubtedly more trustworthy options available in Lisbon.

      Seville day trip from the Algarve
      This company is the worst. Do not spend your money here. Paid for a day trip to Seville and got wrong pickup location. They called us a no show and would not refund. Incompetent service or Scam. Avoid avoid avoid

      SEVILLE DAY TRIP TO NOWHERE
      Misleading pickup information on issued ticket. No refund because we were considered no show. Very uncooperative to deal with. Maybe they are SCAMMERS as suggested. Bottom line is no trip to Seville but charged for it anyway

      AVOID THEY ARE UNRELIABLE!
      On arrival to santa susanna bus driver dropped me off in town he was getting lost and lied to me that there was no access to drop me off at the hotel I was staying Atzavara. I relied on Google maps to get to Atzavara when I arrived at the hotel there was access to buses and cars. On the day of my departure I called Mt's globe at 4.33am to confirm if my transfer will be coming for 5.20am and they said yes.. I went to wait outside for my transfer at 05.15am my transfer did not turn up for 5.20am called mts globe office and they never answered me, called them several times and no answer. I had to use santa susanna taxi to make it for my flight at the airport. Definitely don't recommend them.

      DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY UNRELIABLE AND UNPROFESSIONAL
      DO NOT BOOK AS COACH WILL NOT TURN UP THEN BLAME YOU THAT THE PICK UP TIME AND TIME HAVE CHANGED BUT NO ONE WILL CONTACT YOU TO CONFIRM THIS AND YOU WILL NOT GET A REFUND. We were so disappointed and still frustrated as after 1 month of back and forth I have not received my refund. Booking.com does do anything a swell in regards to this. They are a bunch of fraud that get your booking but will not deliver. My confirmation clearly said pick at my hotel at 7am and on the day we waited in vain. When requested my refund they said the time was changed and they messaged me and when i asked for proof no reply. i stated even at 5am there was no pick up as I checked with the hotel's reception, now they changed the version saying the pick up time also was changed! very unprofessional and unreliable - I repeat DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY AND TRUST THIS COMPANY

      Watch for Crimmals.
      My husband & I would like to put out a caution for people arriving at the Humberto Delgado Airport. I'll make this brief. We arrived from Canada on a night flight, no sleep. A young man asked us at the front doors of the airport if we needed a cab, yes. We were put into a car with no meter, I asked the driver 'how much' because I knew it was only $25 Euros to our destination. He said 'I don't know till we get there', that's when we knew 'something was wrong'. When we arrived at our destination '$354.00 Euros. I said, that's insane, I'm not paying that. He got very mad (he wasn't a small man) and started driving crazy, then drove us to an ATM for $. We ended paying $200 Euros to get out of the car with our luggage which was locked in the trunk. We didn't know if he had a weapon but we're very scared. Just a warning to others getting off a night flight. We are seasoned world travelers but this came out of nowhere. BE WARE.

      You need a better Tour manager for this tour
      Absolutely worthless, the tour operator lady was very terse, unfriendly and at all three sites, just leaves you at bus door and that was it. I understand she was obese and not wanting to walk but lot of very old and frail people were able to walk to the old sites and tourist spots. She did not care to walk or be helpful at all. Secondly the pickup locations were misleading, the location with Faro address is almost 30 miles away from Faro city; for tourists being new to area this should be clarified better. I had to get an expensive taxi to reach the nearest pickup location.

      Worth the travel!
      I was skeptical at first as it seemed far to travel from the algarve but totally worth the day trip. Seville is a beautiful beautiful city. Very picturesque and VERY hot!

    We enjoyed seeing several other towns in the Algarve. Especially liked Tavira, lunch along the river and panoramic view from the castle were our favorites.
