Great tour of the caves and rocks on the southern coast of Portugal at Lagos. Our guide was fluent in English, French and Portuguese which was impressive. He offered all kinds of local anecdotes about the rocks and caves we were touring and the boat driver was highly skilled, getting in and out of tight spaces without a scrape. Very professional and enjoyable.

It was very good trip seeing the cliffs, beaches and caves. Would have enjoyed coming back along the same route instead of going further out into open water as it made me a little sea-sick. Captain was very good, friendly giving plenty of fun and interesting information on the trip.

Review Juni 2022: Am besten findet man sich mit ein bisschen Zeitpuffer im Hafen ein, es gibt hier sehr viele Bootstouranbieter und eine Klappbrücke ;) Die Tour ist mit nur wenigen Personen, was sehr von Vorteil ist. Die Bootsfahrt an sich war gut und kurzweilig. Für einen kurzen Überblick ausreichend.
