This was an awesome trip and a must for anyone visiting the Algarve. You go out in a speedboat to the caves and then SUP in and out in the calmer waters. A perfect combination. The guides were great, very professional and funny too. Highly recommended.

Nice tour with a great guide! The tour takes place in a small private group and is not a mass processing! The weather was great and we visited many other caves, not just the famous Benagil caves! Price performance was perfect. We can highly recommend it.

Eduardo gave us an informative tour of the caves, the group was pleasantly small and relaxed unlike others we saw. I thoroughly recommend if and will do it again.

This was an amazing experience. It was like my own private tour with a lot of information about the caves and Portugal. I would recommend this to anyone.
