On the day we booked, there was an official ban on kayaking due to heavy seas. Instead, our guides showed us great cliffs where we could jump straight into the sea; our children loved it. Two days later, we were able to do the kayak tour again. Our guide was Jack, who is a responsible and very well-trained (also officially licensed) expert on the caves and the entire coastline. He led the tour absolutely brilliantly and was also very attentive to our three children. Both guides are very enthusiastic and convinced of what they do. We will never forget getting to know this wonder of nature in a natural way and without a motorboat. I can only recommend Algarviews with the highest rating! It is precisely this mixture of professionalism and authentic enthusiasm for the beauty and uniqueness of nature that makes this experience unforgettable.

We spent a wonderful day with Bianca and our team. The tour is really cool and it’s nice to have Bianca sharing her experience and little facts about where we are going! The group dynamic was awesome and we had the best guide. Couldn’t say more than just go see it for yourselves! The spots are amazing and Bianca is the best photographer for all our Instagramers! Enjoy!

the tour with Jose was AMAZING! He was a great guide, he spoke many languages and did a great job flipping between them all! He was also very funny and made the tour an incredible experience!
