Hop into a jetboat for a 45-minute spin around Lagos. After meeting at the dock, your captain will give you a quick safety briefing, describing the rip-roaring maneuvers that you’re about to experience. Then you’ll be off on the jetboat, its powerful motor shooting out a rushing stream of water, allowing it to go much faster than traditional boats. With Ponta da Piedade in view, you’ll arrive at the ideal playground for your jetboat adventure. Experience 360° turns, rapid stops, and lots of fun splashing to cool you off from the hot day — but you can put anything you don’t want to get wet in the provided lockers before you board. After your thrilling ride through the harbor, you’ll head back to the dock, having taken in an exciting new perspective of Lagos.
Well organised trip. Great skipper. Loads of fun - be prepared to get extremely wet.

The tour was awesome! The castle in Silves was beautiful and our guide António really gave us interesting information. The visit to the thermal springs in Monchique was a nice stop on the way to the top of the mountain. The guide is very well informed about the local flora and fauna. The winery was beautiful and the wine tasted very good after such a day. The transport in Antónios van is very comfortabele.

I can only recommend this tour and our guide!

Booking and payment via the app was very easy. We also liked the memories of the tours. Our driver was Vasco, happy and in a good mood he entertained us very well the whole time. It never got boring. History, country and people and also the plants and animals ... not a subject he didn't know anything about. We had a lot of fun, saw and experienced a lot. Lunch was delicious too. And at some point the tour was unfortunately over again. Any time.
It was such an enjoyable ride, i imagine especially for a more experienced rider as you get to canter through the dunes. The views are spectacular and I felt safe and comfortable the whole time! The horses looked well groomed, although I would have wished the horse I rode had more developed back muscles and a few kgs more- I wouldnt have been comfortable had I been around the weight Limit to sit on her back.
Perfect! The team was so nice with us and very understanding (if was our first time). The experience was unique. I recommend!
Well organised trip. Great skipper. Loads of fun - be prepared to get extremely wet.
It was well organised, the guide was informative and the boat ride terrific
