    We had a wonderful tour with a skilled guide Miguel who gave us plenty of time to enjoy everything! The boat trip took a lot longer than expected! We ate delicious fresh fish and prawns in Culatra and enjoyed the beach visits, the beautiful views and nature! Carlos guided us beautifully during the registration and even started to put in extra parking money because we were not back in time. I highly recommend Odyssey. When you stay in the Algarve, definitely book! Coronasafe, few people on board, great organization!

    Un'esperienza incredibile e bellissima. Da subito la comunicazione è stata chiara ed esaustiva con Carlos, abbiamo trovato facilmente il punto di incontro . Tutto è organizzato nei minimi particolari,nessun commento negativo anzi un voto 10 ...il tour delle isole Culatra (dove abbiamo mangiato ottimo pesce), Ihla Deserta, Armona, il tour del Ria Formosa, la simpatia di Victor ha reso la giornata indimenticabile, così come le spiagge ed i colori di Olhao. Lo consiglio vivamente
