Bruno was a very nice, easygoing guide. After a short introduction, he took a photo of each group (as well as in between). You drive through several caves and in addition to the Benagil cave you also take a break in another one. The whole tour doesn't feel stressed at all. We took the 5pm tour and had a lot of fun! This trip is one of our top 3 things to do in the Algarve. Great recommendation! Attention: There is a lot of movement on the water (boats & kayaks)

If you've never stood on a SUP before, it's more strenuous than expected. The tour in the morning at sunrise was super nice and ends in one of the caves, where you can take pictures and be photographed by the guide. The 2 hour duration is quite enough for someone who has never done it before. So the tour itself was great and worth seeing, I personally found the information from the guide a bit monotonous. An absolute highlight for me: I was able to take my dog on board.

Activity was very fun and interesting, the guide (Bruno) not much so. They took us to multiple caves based on the level of the tide, quite interesting! But the guide was somewhat annoying; getting quite pissed at us for being quite bad at padding (we are total beginners). Overall I would still recommend... but the guide left us quite a sour aftertaste.
