I think the little train still goes to Ferragudo a couple of times a week but there is now the hop on hop off bus that goes to Ferragudo. It runs every day every 30-40 mins from 9am to 11pm and costa 6€ for 12 hours. You can spend as much time in Ferragudo as you like.

Train starts and finishes at the square. It's not like the hop-on hop-off bus, once you're on the train you can't get off until it returns to the square.

Carvoeiro Tourist Train

Carvoeiro Tourist TrainThe tourist train ('comboio turístico') is a great way to travel around a town and to get a feel for the area, which can be really useful on arrival, as well as providing cheap travel throughout your holiday.

Carvoeiro tourist train information:

♦ Departs every hour on non-stop sightseeing tours
♦ Runs daily from 10.00am to 10.00pm (midnight at high season); except Tuesdays and Fridays between 11.00am and 3.00pm.
♦ The price is around €3
♦ On Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays, the Carvoeiro tourist train takes visitors over to Ferragudo for a tour of the village, leaving time to explore too. The train departs from Carvoeiro (near the tourist information office) at 11.00am and returns at 2.00pm. Adult tickets are around €10 and children's tickets around €8. To book a seat on the tourist train to Ferragudo, book with the driver of the train.

Please note: Some tourist train organisations may reserve the right to cancel tours without prior notice, due to the maintenance of the vehicles, weather conditions or insufficient number of passengers.

Tell you what, though. It doesn't half bounce you around and shake you up. It wouldn't suit my wife who suffers from neck and back problems. It's great fun if you don't suffer from those problems.
