What people are saying about Benagil

So glad I took the trip to see the caves and did this tour! I chose to do the 9am tour and am happy I did. It was a bit cloudy in the morning, but there were barely any people in the cave when we got there so it was great for photos. When going into the caves or onto the beach there were some bigger waves but I always felt safe. There were wet suits and dry bags to rent and I recommend it because I got wet. Eduardo has lived in the area his whole life and runs his own business. He was very kind and helpful, explained everything well, and was patient. He also told us about the caves and some history. I highly recommend this tour if you get the chance to do it!! Thank you for an awesome day, Eduardo!

Eduardo was very friendly, funny, and accommodating. The sea was a little rough but manageable but the kayak to the cave was worth it. We went at 9am in November and there was only us and another group the whole time. It was not that far and we went to this another little beach area a couple minutes away. My friend and I are going to walk the valley trail that lasts for a couple hours but Eduardo was very nice to let us use his shed to leave our heavy backpacks so we don't have to carry it the whole time. I would definitely recommend this tour.

The host was very friendly as well as the other people working there. It is very fun to out on the ocean and see these beautiful caves. Definitely a mist do and great overall experience!

Unforgettable, favorite activity in Portugal, our guide Francisco was amazing! He was friendly, knowledgeable, kind and helpful. I highly recommend using this company.

The tour was so much fun and Francisco was a great guide and so enjoyable to talk to! Thank you, Francisco!!!!
