Really incredible experience! Pedro and Zach were wonderful, fun, and insightful. The various caves are breathtaking. It’s quite a workout (arms and back especially) but totally worth it. We stopped to take pictures a few times. Highly recommend going early, before it gets crowded.

Really brilliant trip. Rui our guide was first class. Made it very relaxing and wasn’t over powering but explained everything brilliantly. We done the caves first and then we were lucky enough to see the dolphins. We had our 7 year old son with us and he absolutely loved it!!

The kayak tour was well organized and the guides were super nice and helpful. The tour is recommended in the morning because shortly before noon it is always full of people in the places and on the water.

Super activité, les paysages et la grotte de Benagil sont magnifiques! Le tour en paddle était super, nous avons découvert de très jolis endroits grâce au guide Miguel, merci beaucoup !

The guides were wonderful. It is a gorgeous sight. I wish there were fewer boats, kayak is the way to see it.
