We decided on the kayak tour because we really wanted to do something sporty. The booking via GetYourGuide went smoothly and easily. After booking, we drove to the meeting point at BorkYou. We were briefed and off we went. We kayaked over a shipwreck, through beautiful caves and past rock formations. The highlight was a narrow passage that we had to drive through and wait for the next wave to lead us through the narrow rock formation. We ended up docking at a nice secluded beach for a bite to eat and drink. After that we drove back. I would do this tour again at any time and recommend it to everyone. Thank you Inês and Rodrigo!

the guide was very nice and the trip wonderful. three hours was just long enough not to get tired. minus one star simply because the organization of the tour was a little bit chaotic and I felt like I missed out on some crucial information along the way. but all in all a lot of fun

This was such a fun activity! I was solo traveling and booked this tour with no prior kayaking experience. I eventually teamed up with a fellow traveler and everything went smoothly. 3 hours of kayaking could be an intense activity for a first-timer but once you reach Praia do Ribeiro do Cavalo, you can decide to rest there or go further to explore more caves. I opted for the latter. Then we went back to the beach to rest for a while and we ate this delicious snack to regain our energy. Our guide Annabelle was great! She picked us up in the agreed location in Lisbon (please note that there are only two pick-up and drop off locations at the time of this writing, so make sure to choose either one of those addresses). Annabelle was also assisted by Rodrigo since there were kids with us. They both made sure that nobody would be left behind while kayaking, so it was very safe. Annabelle also took tons of photos and shared them with us after the tour. 5/5 would kayak with them again!
