    Our tour guides were excellent! They checked all the caves prior to us going in to make sure they were safe. They were knowledgeable, shared the history, and funny. They took us to multiple stops with plenty of time to see and take pictures. We enjoyed this tour a lot and would highly recommend.

    Benagil is the iconic cave (it’s not s cave) of Portugal’s Algarve! Great photos The Kayaking exp was well organised & run. Guides were brilliant. A two hr. round trip- & as a group we got lots of local & historic info. Got yo get out into the “Cave” The trip is good for the exp & less experienced. Moderately strenuous as it was later in the day/ more water traffic & tide coming in. (SUPaddle boarders had a harder time. Boats sometimes can’t get in with tide/ dong get yo get out & explore) Early morning if an optional is more ideal. I used public transport from Lagos - very doable as a day trip. Comparing to Lagos “Caves & Grottos” - different experience. If you can do both - “Just Do It”

    Adam and Hugo were amazing guides for the day. We had such a wonderful experience. I would highly recommend this company and ensuring that you have a guide. We saw so many people out kayaking without a guide that were unsafe or unable to kayak properly. Adam and Hugo ensured we were all safe and gave us a proper tour of the area. I would also highly recommend a kayak tour over the boating tour to reduce environmental impacts. The boats were crazy and Adam and Hugo made sure to keep us all safe and ensured we had a great time. This was one of the best things we did on our holiday. I hope you get a chance to go too :) Thanks to Adam especially for everything! Rachel and Andrew from Canada
