I had booked the tour for Monday, I asked to anticipate Sunday and it was possible, all in a quick and easy way. We arrived at the stand and Carlos welcomed us in the best possible way giving us all the information. Then Vitor Hugo, our guide, took us by boat to the various islands, showing himself to be friendly, helpful and experienced. We spent a pleasant day in a relaxing atmosphere without the stress of rushing (the tour lasted 6/7 hours).

The most beautiful and idyllic excursion I have done in the Algarve, I will certainly recommend it to everyone who comes, we had a great day and we got to know these islands that I personally did not know about their existence and especially that people lived there, we had time to walk through them , bathe and eat, it was a day 10 and I do not rule out repeating again in the future, our guide Victor Hugo a fisherman from there of a lifetime made everything very enjoyable and treated us super well.

The tour is complete and pleasant, the skipper offers interesting details of the places, leaves room for visiting the islands, and recommends an excellent location for lunch (not to be missed) ... bathrooms are a must in all three beaches. Don't miss it. And good Louis, great sympathy
