    We are a family of 10 traveling together in Portugal for the first time. We range from 17 to 83 and we all enjoyed this trip immensely. The guide and boat captain were friendly, informational, entertaining and took us in so many caves and past interesting places. A highlight of our once-in-lifetime trip!!

    We had a wonderful tour of the Benagil Caves region with this company. Dino was great commandeering the boat, while Luis was very helpful giving information and taking photos. They even went back to retake some photos which looked questionable on the LCD screen. We are very happy with our tour and highly recommend this company/ guides Luis and Dino. Thanks, again ! Sarah was also very helpful in setting up the tour and preparations.

    O passeio foi fantástico! Eu fui com minha esposa em um passeio privado, com o Guia André e o Capitão João. Ambos são sensacionais! Eles tornam a viagem muito mais tranquila e divertida, sem deixar de lado a nossa segurança. Nenhum detalhe do passeio fica sem explicação. Com toda certeza eu farei esse passeio novamente!
