This is an interesting and fun experience. The beaches and caves are really interesting to see from the sea, with nice photo opportunities. A couple of comments - it would be helpful if a smaller life jacket was provided for babies (the one provided to our 10 month old was still too big and we spent time fiddling with this and being concerned about her comfort and whether or not she could see much!); and the first part of the trip seemed a little rushed and difficult to take in all the info from the first few caves/beaches which all come quickly one after another. However, overall it's good value for money and we would happily recommend to others :) One observation for "GetYourGuide" though - the email confirmations sent out include incorrect information regarding the meeting point for this excursion, with the correct information coming from the text messages from the guide. This info is contradictory and confusing - the emails need updating.
We had the most amazing trip and Pudim, our experienced skipper, he was spectacular! Not only was he having to repeat himself 4 times in; Spanish, Portuguese, French and English, due to those on board but, he made sure we all felt involved and always updated us along the way. He gave us tips and places to visit when we stopped off on the islands being super friendly. We throughly enjoyed the experience so much and would definitely do it again. I highly recommend this trip to anyone and especially if you have Pudim as your Skipper!
Paulo was a brilliant guide and a very trusting and competent sailor. He let me helm his very speedy racing yacht out to Farol Island. All the whilst reassuring my non-sailor partner that his boat could never capsize. What a great morning sailing we had. Thanks Paulo, thoroughly recommend this trip for a little adventure.
Paulo is AMAZING> We learned so much and had the best time. He’s so patient and his English is perfect. I can’t recommend this enough, its an absolutely bargain for the experience we had. We’ll definitely book again next time we visit the Algarve
The experience for this tour has been excellent! The tour is beautiful to discover Ría Formosa and the beaches of Faro and the trip is very nice. Ricardo, our local guide was fantastic and very kind. I would repeat for sure! :)
