What people are saying about Almada

We really enjoyed the sunset tour! Fernando and Mario were our guides. They were so kind, knowledgeable and fun. We learned a lot and enjoyed the tour thoroughly. It was a chilly day and they even had blankets that they offered to us and helped wrap up the kids. They also let my children have turns driving the boat. It was a great time. I highly recommend it!

Fernando and Luis are amazingly friendly and fun guides to be with on the sailboat. The views were beautiful and it’s the perfect spot to take in the city and the sunset. I highly recommend the experience.

We were stuck in traffic and late, but they waited for us and made us feel welcome. Excellent guide to the different parts of the journey too

Mario and Maria were so amazing! 10/10. And the views so gorgeous. Was hesitant to book this as a solo traveler but so glad I did.

It was a wonderful experience and Sebastian and Ferdinand were so nice and friendly! I really enjoyed it
