What people are saying about Olhos de Água

This was a fabulous boat trip. The crew were super helpful informative and ensured all passengers were safe and well looked after. It was great value for money too. As we sailed around the coastline crew members told us about the places we saw and some of the history. We stopped for a visit to the caves and again the crew were brilliant helping everyone in and out of the little boats into the caves. We also stopped to allow people to swim in the sea - again the crew were brilliant helping people as needed. There was a well stocked bar on board and all drinks were really reasonably priced. You were also allowed to bring your own refreshments on board too. It was the highlight of our holiday.

Having read about Jorge’s Tuk-Tuk tour and the many fantastic reviews we read about, we went ahead and booked. We had a great time with Jorge, showing the 3 of us all around Albufeira, both the old and the new town, along with the many fine beaches to be found along the coast. Jorge has much knowledge of the local area, as well as all the back roads you wouldn’t normally get to see and explore on a normal coach tour. Definitely a must, to get to know all about the local area. Photo’s a bonus, at no extra cost, taken by Jorge and forwarded to your home E-mail address. Who else would be so generous…………..Jorge. 5 Star all the way. Steve, Tracy & Jemma from the UK

The boat was great. The crew was very friendly and attentive. The tour was very complete. We saw the caves in a boat and we bathed in the high seas. Highly recommended. It also made us a very good day because it was cloudy. It's 3 hours and at 3 it would probably be very hot another day

Very first time on a surfboard and now we would do it again a thousand times! The guys are really top and they are good at conveying their passion! And all in a paradise beach! We absolutely recommend it

It was realy great. Cool instructors, organization was fine. Everything was safe.
