A beautiful city - we were overwhelmed. There are so many sights that the short time of 4 hours to visit was simply not enough. In addition, if you plan to visit the Cathedral and Alcazar on the same day, it's just too much. Unfortunately, you spend more time overall on the bus ride. Our tour guide was in English and German - a big plus. To get a first impression of this city, this short excursion may suffice. You should plan three days to get to know the city better with its small streets, great bars and so many unique buildings. We will do that for sure!

Absaloutely fantastic from start to finish. The guides were hilarious and the captain even brought us into to an extra cave towards the end that was not initially part of the tour. The water was choppy on the way out and we were tossed about (that only added to the enjoyment for me) but at no point did we feel unsafe. The Benagil cave was worth the fee alone but you get to see soooo much more than I was expecting that it was insanely good value for money. Heavily reccomend it if your planning to see the cave

Well organised. Lots of information about trip. Saw dolphins. Staff looked after passengers. They were friendly and made us laugh. The sights were out of this world. Trip was worth every penny. Just make sure you are a good sailor. Boat goes very fast over waves. I found it thrilling! Loved the spray on a hot day to. Take a little cash for crew tip. They do deserve it. Would do trip again for sure and will tell others about it also

This was a really interesting tour. So glad we did it. It’s fairly new, they started in 2019, then Covid hit which impacted them. Probably why it is a little pricey today $25usd, trying to make up for lost funds. Our tour guide Alex, was really good and knew his stuff. We would highly recommend this activity to all ages.

Very enjoyable 3.5 hours. Great staff and great fun.
