I don't have enough words to express how amazing the experience was! From the first moment, with his clear explanations, we noticed that Tiago was the best guide we have had on sup tours. Watching the sunrise paddling in the calm waters of Lagos, visiting the caves, was something you have to do at least once in your life. It is worth every euro you pay. More than recommended, it is a must in the Algarve.

Superb experience! Nelson our guide was really very nice and experienced, he took many pictures of all the participants and the caves are incredible to visit by paddle!

Really great tour, great explanation, very personable leader of the group. Would do it again anytime! The landscape at sunrise is unique.

So nice to stand on a SUP at sunrise and get an explanation while paddling and to paddle through rocks.

uncomplicated. Very friendly employee. Thorough briefing. We liked it very much.
