We had an awesome trip with Andrea, Nunu and Marin. They were really nice and explained us everything well. Both their English and their Spanish is professional. They take care of you and make sure that you feel comfortable during the whole trip. We did the 2 hour trip from Portimão to the Benagil Cave and we were lucky because we saw dolphins. It was an amazing experience and we can recommend it to you! Muito obrigada de as tres meninas alemanas :)
