    First we had to look where we could report with our voucher. A Lagos Boat Tours stand was nowhere to be seen. So we first sat down at the meeting point on the bench in front of the meeting point. And immediately we were approached by our guide. He was sitting right next to us. The guide was great. German-speaking, nice and courteous. The tour is all worthwhile. Beautiful grottos in great light (tour at 4.15 p.m.). And it was exciting too. The guide never missed the opportunity to drive into the smallest cave. It was wonderful. We can absolutely recommend Lagos Boat Tours.

    The tour was really fun, with a wonderful look! As the sea was rough, the route was tiring, with many boat crashes on the waves. Still, it was worth it, given the possibility of seeing the beauty of the caves and the coast.

    Great value for the price, host was early to meet us, very friendly and was extremely proficient in English and French. The meeting place was easy to find. The ride was very scenic and enjoyable, especially entering the grottos. Definitely book this trip! :)
