A wonderful experience. The two tour guides were excellent - the scenery along the coast was stunning. We stopped at 5 or 6 locations on our way up to the Benagil caves and enjoyed a very pleasant ride, further out at sea on our return journey. The weather was absolutely perfect which made the trip even more enjoyable.
