What people are saying about Alentejo

Wow! What a great experience. I didn't think that I would jump from a 10m cliff, but the guide slowly led us to it and in the end everyone who had done the previous jumps well could also jump into the cave (8m) or the 10m jump. The guide was always very considerate and made sure that everyone completed the tour with fun. Everyone was free to decide how high they dare to jump. The participants had different fitness levels, but the tour is designed in such a way that it was neither too demanding nor too strenuous. Everyone was having fun! An unforgettable experience!!

Nelson and Billy provided an amazing experience! The water, the waves, the cliffs, the diving and jumping were all amazing. The team made sure we had the opportunity to go at our pace but also push ourselves to jump some fun new heights. Thx guys!!!

Great experience with many different activities, definitely worth giving it a go if you like adventures! Nelson and Bobby were very welcoming, friendly and provided a lot of information about the area.

Other excursions around Lagos pale in comparison to this very good non-standard activity

it's a beautiful experience surrounded by nature and diving was very exciting
