Great tour

★★★★★ Reviewed by Melina on 2019-01-03
Even in the winter time, (we did the tour in December) it is a great experience. We had approximately 17°, of course the legs got wet but with a rain jacket and the sun, it was not to cold. We had a great guide (i think his name was something like Lauro), who was very experienced, he took good care of us and had a great knowledge about the area and the animals.

Great Kayaking with David

★★★★★ Reviewed by Matthew on 2018-07-30
I went on a kayaking trip with my girlfriend with David. You need to ensure you agree a time when there is a low tide to get the most out of your trip (we were lucky!). David was an excellent guide. Very friendly, knowledgeable and engaging and the 2 hour tour was the perfect length. I think it would be difficult to know where to go without a guide.

The best way to explore the Ria Formosa!

★★★★★ Reviewed by Niki on 2018-06-17
What might look at first like a flat expanse of mud and water, to the untrained eye, becomes an amazing wonderland waiting to be explored when you're with one of Lands's brilliant guides. My partner and I spent a fun afternoon kayaking in the lagoon with Francisco, who was very entertaining and clearly knew his stuff. His sense of humour and obvious enjoyment of his job made our experience one to remember.

Highly recommend for families.

★★★★★ Reviewed by Suzanne on 2017-10-16
Our family of four took this two hour guided tour. Two double kayaks. Loved it; a peaceful, safe and fun way to explore the natural beauty of this area. Our guide was Tanya and she is very knowledgeable about the birds and plants and tides - a graduate of Eco Tourism - we were in good hands. Went out at low tide, stopped in a couple of places, even got out on an island beach, and then came back into Faro Harbour when it the water was much higher, so got to see the changing landscape. Highly recommend for families.
