Miguel our guide was very informative about the wildlife and knowledge of the Ria Famosa habit and made the trip very enjoyable. I loved the 2 Islands we saw it was a pleasure to stop off enjoy the sunshine and take a drink in the Pirates bar on Lighthouse Island

Second cruise in the space of 15 days with friends who came to join me during my stay. Once again everything was perfect, no false notes. Our guide Philippe was able to share his knowledge of this magnificent place with us, everything was a change of scenery, I recommend without hesitation

Magic ballad, for a moment time stopped, few people in this period, we were able to fully appreciate these places, the population makes it a point of honor to preserve these places, congratulations! A very special mention for Miguel our benevolent guide, he knows these places perfectly, he talks about them with passion. I recommend, you can go there with your eyes closed. Thanks to Paula for her warm welcome and her kindness.
