After hiking the Seven Hanging Valley Trail, and seeing the Bengali Cave from the top, we decided we had to visit the caves….and the only way to do that was kayaking. We chose Secret Algarve via GetYourGuide based on the wonderful reviews we read. They were not wrong. Our guides were Jack and Conrad and they were amazing. They always chose safety as a priority, but also made our experience tons of fun. My husband was a little worried about kayaking, as he had never done it before but Jack’s instructions were so clear, my husband’s worries went away as soon as we were in the ocean. He has now fallen in love with kayaking. LOL! Anyway, this was THE BEST! Highly recommend this experience.

Amazing guidance and it was really fun! On the day, I received a phonecall to reschedule our booking to earlier in the day as the later slot was cancelled due to strong wind and rain. As this was short notice we ended up running late but they waited for us. Samuel was really patient with my friend and I - we were a bit slower than the rest of the group and he made sure we were okay at all times. In the Benagil Cave, he helped with taking amazing pictures and videos.

What a fun experience! I am so glad I booked this and even more glad I decided to change into my swim suit before the kayak! You definitely do get wet and the water was refreshing. I thought I’d be cold for a 10.30 am tour on Feb 1 but it was fun and I would recommend this tour! Our guide jack and Zach were both great!
