My husband and I were on a cruise with a stop on Portimao, so we booked this excursion to see the Benagil Cave. So glad we did! The entire excursion, seeing the coastline, all the caves, and the guides knowledge of the caves and towns we were seeing, so much fun! Would highly recommend and if we’re in Portimao again, we will definitely take this tour again!!

Was a great tour overall, though would wish to have gotten off the boat to see the benagil cave islands as we made a long trip to see it. But was nice to see the caves when we went inside. Also advise to slow down the boat going back especially when kids are afraid of how bumpy it gets.
