What people are saying about Ferragudo

Super fun boat tour with our guide Miguel! He told a lot and was in for a joke. Thanks to him we enjoyed this trip along the water and after the trip we went to other places that Miguel recommended to us! This trip is definitely worth it.

Very nice guides and a very personal tour, no mass tourism clearance. A lot was said about the caves and there were many free bathing beach recommendations. A refreshing excursion, especially on hot days.

We had a fantastic day on the water with Joanna and Guillerme, they had our experience at the top of their priority and made the day the peak of our holiday.. Would highly recommend this to anyone.

Everything spectacular from the guide explaining everything very well, the captain super skillful and confident, the breathtaking landscapes, all the caves have a natural beauty

The experience is fantastic, you will enjoy great views and corners of the Algarve that only with this experience you can discover, I would repeat without a doubt.
