We loved the tour. André, who took us to Cabo Espichel, was an incredible guide, explained everything we were passing through and knew stories about the places. We were extremely lucky with the weather and therefore the tour was perfect. André even offered us a glass of muscatel from Setúbal, to enjoy on the tour.

It exceeded my expectations. I went with my sister and we both love this tour. On the last beach we had the privilege of drinking a Setúbal muscatel on the boat. We stopped twice to dive. Professional and super friendly staff. I recommend

Very complete and interesting tour. Our guide (André) very attentive and open to suggestions to customize the tour. Very good experience
