What a fantastic evening! João was the perfect guide. Personable, funny and full of wonderful stories and history. He introduced our group (which was a fabulous group btw!) to more refined versions of Portuguese cuisine, family fare which was sumptuous and warming to the core, to a local bar with delicious foods making the mouth water and a shot of local “moonshine”. We topped the evening off with a coffee and sweets and chatted with our new friends. Highly recommended this tour.

This excursion was amazing, a must see, and the tour guide and his crew were incredible! I highly recommend! I (40 year old female) took my 7 year old and 70 year old parents and we all had an amazing time!

Well organised tour. Great guides. Felt safe despite a bit of chop. Awesome views that can’t be seen by boat. The big cave is really impressive. A must do trip! Many thanks
