The reception was good. Covid safety rules were respected at all times. We were 2 people plus the guide and we always had our masks on. Our guide was great, educated and explained in detail the relevant points of the tour. He even suggested a good vegan in Faro which we went to and loved it. I fully recommend this activity!!

Amazing experience by sunset!

We chose the sunset slot to make the most of the changing light experience and enjoy a sunset boat trip without the extortionate fares of those boat trips that have the word 'sunset' in their title. It truly was an amazing trip, and our guide was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. We had the bonus of having the boat to ourselves, as no one else had booked the slot! Very many thanks :-)

Really nice tour! The guide was super friendly and had a perfect know-how about the islands. We saw a lot and the boat was really quit, so it made a good atmosphere. The price was really good as well. I would recommend this tour to everyone and would do it again.
