    Experience was amazing the tour guide picked me up on time and was very explanatory about the city of Lisbon and the history of Portugal on out way to the boat. Boat ride was little bumpy but very comfortable. The tour guide was very kind to give us sea sick pill as soon as we got in the van to avoid the sea sick for those who have. But it really worth the boat ride to the island with an incredible view of the ocean, plus when you get there the tour in the island is great along with time for you to snorkeling, kayaking and swim.

Very well organized tour, excellent reception and very good guides. During the boat trip, you are always asked if everything is in order. Clear instructions on arrival what is expected of you and where to go for the guided tour. I can highly recommend Berlengas tour. I do recommend doing this in sunny weather, if cloudy, the effect of the beautiful island is less but still worth it for the price you pay. I recommend combining the cave tour with the hicking tour. If only a hicking tour has been booked, a steep climb back to the starting point awaits you, with cave tour you go back by boat.

Bring a small backpack and sneakers so you can walk around the island. It is very small, half a day is more than enough if you don't do other activities like visiting the caves. The beach is very small and if you want to chill you may have not space to do it.

Guide say some dolphins and stopped for a few minutes for us to see them. Went through a number of arches. He made the trip lots of fun.

It was a very nice trip and the guide was very friendly! I definitely recommend it!

Great tour, the glass bottom boat was the best part
