It was great. Took the tour with my gf, the staff are really funny and friendly. Caves are awesome and it is just a fun activity. Felt safe and in control the whole time. 11 out of 10. Ps: if u take the morning tour, make sure u go to the toilet before. Toilets open at 9:30 so if u need to go make sure u go before.

Good friendly hardworking guide, couldn’t have done more. However, group size of 20 felt way too high especially as several other same sized groups all out at the same time. Add in the SUPpers -and the many day boats zooming in and out and it was chaos that didn’t feel quite right. The main cave was packed, boats, swimmers, kayaks etc - not pleasant. But overall still fun as once on the water you are spaced out.

The guides were very friendly and attentive, showing a good knowledge of the area. The caves are beautiful, but unfortunately, the Benagil cave is already too touristy. There were a lot of people, both in the cave and on the beach at the meeting point, which made me a little worried given the pandemic situation in which we find ourselves. Me and my friends were one of the few with a mask.
