    The boat ride was fast and comfortable. The caves tour showed us beautiful spots around the island, and the guided tour was very informative. Our hike guide (João, a seasoned guide in his 50s) was excellent: knowledgeable, courteous, and funny. The only minus was the somewhat disorganized boarding, especially on the return trip, and some unclear information about the sequence of events once on the island. Unfortunately the weather was not favorable and we did not swim in the beaches. All in all, it was a wonderful afternoon in this beautiful island and we heartily recommend it.

    Very well organized tour, excellent reception and very good guides. During the boat trip, you are always asked if everything is in order. Clear instructions on arrival what is expected of you and where to go for the guided tour. I can highly recommend Berlengas tour. I do recommend doing this in sunny weather, if cloudy, the effect of the beautiful island is less but still worth it for the price you pay. I recommend combining the cave tour with the hicking tour. If only a hicking tour has been booked, a steep climb back to the starting point awaits you, with cave tour you go back by boat.

    The experience has been fantastic, the trip by super fun speedboat, the walk to the fortress very pleasant with our guide, (a boy with big beards that I think I remember is called Joau) ... the boat ride through the caves and time to take a bath in the island's cove ... All great although snorkeling is almost impossible due to the low temperature of the waters .... It is only for the brave.
