Booking through GYG was problem-free, I booked in advance in the evening and the guide had everything ready at 9 a.m., I just had to give our name. On our tour we were 7 participants, 4 kayaks in total. There are lockers on site to stow valuables and clothing, etc. We were well instructed and started on time. The guide had told some interesting stories about Lagos and the caves, we paddled into some of them before we could chill on a lonely beach for 20 minutes. We were pulled back by a boat, that was really nice :-) All in all, very recommendable!

Our guide took us through so many small caves and arches. He led us down close to the coast so we could see all the details. He didn’t rush us so we had time to enjoy the beauty and take pics. They provide a dry bag so you can bring your bag with you or they have lockers. They tow you back with a boat so you only paddle one way. We absolutely loved it. It was convenient to book online.

The best word to describe my experience: bliss! What an incredible way to take in the beauty of the algarve. The guide was a super friendly guy with a great personality. The caves were absolutely incredible.

Completely amazing, would highly recommend, really friendly and informative, the kayaks a for two people. also what was great is that you can go at your own pace, beginner friendly.

In the top ! The walk allows you to discover by the sea, the superb coast and to see the different beaches. To do on arrival. The guide is also on top!
