What people are saying about Praia da Rocha

This is such a great tour. The tour guide was informative and fun which made the boat trip that much more pleasant. The caves are incredible and with the small boat we were able to enter many of them. Also, the stop in the small fishing village is a great bonus to get fresh fish and see a small area that you may not plan to visit otherwise. Highly highly recommend.

Very nice guides and a very personal tour, no mass tourism clearance. A lot was said about the caves and there were many free bathing beach recommendations. A refreshing excursion, especially on hot days.
