Second cruise in the space of 15 days with friends who came to join me during my stay. Once again everything was perfect, no false notes. Our guide Philippe was able to share his knowledge of this magnificent place with us, everything was a change of scenery, I recommend without hesitation

Magic ballad, for a moment time stopped, few people in this period, we were able to fully appreciate these places, the population makes it a point of honor to preserve these places, congratulations! A very special mention for Miguel our benevolent guide, he knows these places perfectly, he talks about them with passion. I recommend, you can go there with your eyes closed. Thanks to Paula for her warm welcome and her kindness.

Nice visit with an invested and warm guide

The visit to the Ria Formosa was a real pleasure! Thank you to the guide Ricardo, who made us discover this magnificent place (ria formosa + 2 splendid islands) He was funny, involved and knew the place very well. Our visit went really well and in terms of language, Ricardo speaks French and English very well. Nice little activity, to do without hesitation, I recommend +++++
