What people are saying about Vilamoura

Absolutely amazing, it may be pricey but i enjoyed the heck out of it. The thrill was awesome. I paid for the 30 min experience and timed it myself with a stop watch and i was out there for exact 30 min. The area is big enough, i had so much fun the half hour flew by. If you want a good jet ski experience, i highly recommend this one by Nauctic.

We had an amazing trip. The caves are beautiful and the kids loved jumping off the boat into the sea. We even had the bonus of seeing dolphins. The guides were brilliant, explaining history as we cruised. This is one of the best trips of our holiday so far.

Very nice tour. Best driver/guide. Was very fun. The wine tasting is very extensive. You take your time with the guests. For the price an absolutely recommendable event.

Great trip, helpful crew on board. Nice to swim off of the boat and dingy the trip around the caves was unexpected. Had the bonus of seeing dophins too

Really well organised and great fun. Felt very safe and a bit scary all at the same time thank you
