What people are saying about Carvoeiro

Excellent trip. Efficient to board and get going. The design of the seats was a bit ungainly but you got used to them pretty quick. The tour of the caves was very good and it was good that we got the opportunity to take pictures. By far and away the best part was speeding out to sea and getting to see the dolphins! This was the highlight of the trip and an amazing experience. The guide was very good and I felt safe at all times. Would definitely recommend as it was a great way to see two wonderful sights in one trip!

Really brilliant trip. Rui our guide was first class. Made it very relaxing and wasn’t over powering but explained everything brilliantly. We done the caves first and then we were lucky enough to see the dolphins. We had our 7 year old son with us and he absolutely loved it!!

Tour was great, got to see the caves and managed to spot some dolphins! Guide was great and gave information about each spot we stopped at. Overall a fantastic tour

The trip was very nice, we learned many things about the caves and local culture; then we were lucky since we saw dolphins! They were not be seen last days:-)
