"Le lieu était comme un rêve, nos accompagnateurs aux petits soins avec nous et d'une amabilité sans nom. Nous avons découvert les caves puis nous sommes posés sur une plage avec pique nique et tous plein d'activités. Merci encore pour le cocktail qui fut délicieux ! Nous recommandons à 100% ce petit roadtrip que ce soit aussi bien pour découvrir que se détendre parfaitement"

"Wow what a day! first of all our host was the most generous, fun, interactive person we have ever met! He clearly enjoys his job and tour guiding is his specialty, he gets a 10/10. Our trip went on very smoothly, we all met at the meeting point and then drove down to the beach. There they got everything ready and we got to do a little tanning until we hit the water. Then finally getting on the kayjak was amazing, the guid was very good at keeping a good eye on the group making sure nobody got left behind. Then after the all the kayaking we had lunch which was so delicious and the host made everything for us which made this experience very personal and local at the same time. The car ride back was very pleasant and he even dropped us off close to the hotel so we wouldn’t have to walk back. This trip was so much fun and i recommend it for everybody! great value for money and a real adventure in Portugal."
