Different and interesting

Glad we found this. Nice way to spend our last morning en route to the airport. Rui was a friendly and informative guide, and we saw parts of local life we would otherwise have missed. Recommended.

Visite en anglais alors qu elle était prévue en Français. Très peu d’explications sur la pêche, les oiseaux... pas d’arret Plage comme indique dans la brochure mais dans un village déchargé à côté des poubelles. Cela s’apparente A un attrape touriste.
