No problems at all with this company. Booked a trip from the UK to go on a boat to the Algarve caves. They didn’t take any money until the day before and kept me well informed. I asked a number of questions regarding attire and toilet facilities and they got back to me promptly. Would definitely use again.

This was such an awesome experience. The sites that we were taken to see alone were worth every penny. The friendliness and hospitality of the crew were wonderful. An excellent meal was provided on a private beach and our kids really enjoyed the paddle boards that were available to use. The boat had plenty of bathrooms so there was never an issue with having to wait a long time.

The cruise itself was good, quite costly for what you get, but overall enjoyable. However, I would not recommend booking through GetYourGuide. The meet up point they sent us was 1.5km away from where the cruise actually leaves and we had to rush to make it in time. My advice would be to book directly with the cruise providers.
