What people are saying about Ferragudo

Super fun boat tour with our guide Miguel! He told a lot and was in for a joke. Thanks to him we enjoyed this trip along the water and after the trip we went to other places that Miguel recommended to us! This trip is definitely worth it.

Very nice guides and a very personal tour, no mass tourism clearance. A lot was said about the caves and there were many free bathing beach recommendations. A refreshing excursion, especially on hot days.
