Recommended 100%. In our case, we were going to the Belize, with a teenager in a wheelchair and it has been all attention to be able to sit him in the armchair of the boat, which by the way they are very comfortable. Pending that we all see the dolphins. Unforgetable experience. Thanks

I enjoyed the trip, however i did already so many around the world, that comparing with others.. i cant give a 5stars raiting. Some of the caves were so busy, that was just the time to go in and out. That has nothing to do with the company, but with the caves themselves, specially berganil cave. A pitty!!

Wow! Fantastic experience!

A great tour heading west on the Algarve coast! Good explanations of the coast and the caves. The highlight was of course Dolphin Watching !!! We saw many dolphins right around our boat ... Very impressive! God's creation is wonderful! We were on the road for 2.5 hours. You only have to show your smartphone ticket briefly in the office at the port and then there are boarding passes. Parking in the parking garage at the port costs extra, but it is uncomplicated and short distances. TOP!
