    My wife and I had a fantastic time, the caves were amazing. The guides did a great job of describing how they were formed and pointing out things I would have never noticed had we gone by ourselves. The tour was just the right lenth and the guides made it fun and had lots of good kayak jokes…. Keep up the good work guys!!!!! Fantastic!!!!

    The kayak tour was great and the guides were in a really good mood. It was great fun with you. But unfortunately also only with you one must say to it. Here you notice again how selfish and incompetent some people behave (adults). Group size: approx. 20 people on 10 kayaks. Departure time: Meeting point 8.30 a.m. / Departure: shortly after 9.00 a.m. Benagil cave: Unfortunately already very full at this time. If you want few or no people here, you should book the tour at 7 a.m. or swim. There are also mini boards to rent and from Benagil to the cave it is maybe 100m in the water. Chaos reigned on the way back. Boats, speed boats and other kayak tours. In short: to everything around the beach the cave was going on. Experience: Definitely a value. Some people probably don't care at all. Unfortunately, it was just too much hustle and bustle for us with our fellow human beings. Next time we'll do the tour alone. Nevertheless, the guides were great!

    Wonderful tour! The guides were all very kind, professional and attentive - I felt very safe and secure in the boats. Even though I'm a beginner at kayaking, it's a fun way to enjoy the beautiful caves, plus it's much more sustainable for the environment. Special mention to Jack for being especially attentive and guiding us on how to use the oar properly. :)
