The kayak trip was a highlight in Lagos. We kayaked in pairs around the caves and got to get real close. The sights were amazing and don’t worry about getting photos, they have another guide in a boat who takes photos of the group. Our guide David was great. If you get sea sick from the waves there’s an option to take a support boat back.

The best excursion in the Algarve

I did this tour with some friends a week ago. Our guide was Diego. The excursion could only be booked in Portuguese or English. We got a very pleasant surprise since Diego spoke Spanish. He was a very helpful and friendly guide. From time to time he stopped to watch that the group will not separate too much and regroup. He was also attentive to our safety, since there are boats in the area and we coincide with some of them in caves. I recorded the tour with the Go Pro, but they also take 4-6 photos that they post on Facebook and you can get them for free. The only downside is that in the cove where we stopped to bathe we barely spent 20 minutes and do not snorkel, you just bathe on your own. On the way back you can choose, if you are very tired you are towed and you can go back paddling. Also, we met Ricardo, the guide of the group that comes out

The trip was great and the guide very engaged. We couldn't make it inside the caves, however, as the sea was too rough - one thing the guide made us aware of before the trip started and gave us the choice to do it this way. He also explained quite a lot throughout the tour which was very nice! The only thing which was not so nice is that the ride back was fixed to the motor boat that accompanied us so that we didn't actively paddle back.
