Full description

Meet directly in the Marina of Lagos where the boat is moored and then begin your journey up the river and past one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, Praia Dona Ana. After, continue on to the beautiful caves and grottos of Lagos, including the "Love Cave" and the "Elephant" to name a few. Your trip will take place in a small group so that you and the other guests receive personal attention and a safety briefing. Be introduced to the caves and grottos by your guide. Get a brief overview of their history, as well as why they're named as they are. Then, journey back to the Marina in Lagos where you can relax and have a drink or food in one of the many cafe bars and restaurants on offer there. Select the 1.5-hour option to head a little further down the coast to take beautiful photos of the coastline, before returning to shore.

    Luckily we had a private tour so we could enjoy the tour to ourselves. The tour guide was very warm and tried to give us a great excursion. With the small boat we could go to all the caves and marvel at nature. We especially liked the evening light on the cliffs ... So: The tour was extremely good.

    The tour was booked with a German-speaking guide, but unfortunately it wasn't like that! Explanations were given in Portuguese and English. Which wasn't so great for my husband because he doesn't understand either language! However, I can still speak at least a little English. Presumably due to the current pandemic, there were two Portuguese women with us on the tour. Therefore we had a lot of space on board and the guide was able to answer the questions more individually.

    Came out especially for us 2, cancelling his day off because he knew the weather was changing and it would be our last chance to get out on water for a week or more as Dec storms approached Portugal. He drove us right through great rock formations and gave us an historically informative tour. Learned Columbus was really a Portuguese man named Zagres who was just tossing Spain crumbs of what Portugal knew was was out there. Guide showed us where he would dive off cliffs as a foolish teenager. Recommended!
