It was a great experience and such a fantastic trip! We got a chance to see so many caves an beaches. This small boat tour is the perfect boat tour to see the caves up close. Our guide and his colleague were great guides with nice sense of humor. The boats are also very comfortable and we never got wet. I absolutely 100% recommend this trip.

Wonderful tour, but boat driver only gave access of the views to the people in the front of the boat. this was my 4th boat tour in Portugal this trip, & other drivers were sure to turn the boat for all passengers to have access to views. I believe everyone paid the same price for their seats, but the passengers in the front clearly had preferential treatment.

Fantastic trip! saw so many caves an beaches. Went into the Benagil caves and others. I would not rent a kayak. This small boat tour is the perfect boat tour to see the caves up close. Big boats cannot enter and the kayaks is alot o effort. Andre and his colleague were great guides with nice sense of humor. The boats are also very comfortable and we never got wet. I absolutely 100% recommend this trip. We went at low tide which is something I would suggest. We also went at 10h00 which was a good time. Make the booking. You won't be disappointed.
