Great experience for the first time visiting this area! I would definitely recommend doing this tour, but choosing the earliest time possible as later in the day it gets very crowded on the water, and makes the views harder to enjoy with so much activity! The company was organized, and helpful and even provided a dry bag for our belongings.

Great outing from start to finish! We first had to cancel a first time a little at the last moment following our little guys who were sick, Get Your Guide and Secret Algavre scrambled to find us a slot the next day when they could have refused us the reprogramming . And in addition once there it was great, the Secret Algavre team are really super nice, they explain well, are attentive to children and it was super beautiful! In short, perfect! Thank you to Mike and Miguel!

Very good experience, the guys who run it are very nice and they explain the history of each place. You can carry the mobile in a waterproof bag that they give you. I recommend taking the tour first thing in the morning, the later it is, the more people there are. It is essential to go with a reservation, endless queues form.
