Stunning landscapes of Portugal When visiting Faro it is a worthwhile experience to take this adventure. A small group enables great conversations, forming friendships and learning about this beautiful land. It is a full day of sun and sea and exquisite scenery. Lots of walking, talking, laughing and swimming. The final highlight is a cliff jump into pristine waters. Great staff makes for a wonderful day

A great day out! Unreal views along the coast. We had the perfect weather for our day out and the guide was amazing. Loved the cliff jumping at the end too! 🙌

Espectacular Fue una experiencia única. Nos desplazamos en furgoneta a los distintos puntos, las explicaciones y el recorrido eran amenos, entrar nadando a la cueva fue maravilloso, lo preferí cuando vi la locura de kayaks que había atestando la playa y para acabar el día... lanzarnos desde un barranco. De 10

Super journée! Magnifique parcours. Les paysages sont enchanteurs. Notre guide a fait un travail formidable pour que notre expérience soit réussie. Petite mise en garde! Pour profiter au maximum de votre journée, portez de bonnes chaussures. Certains sentiers sont étroits et rocailleux. Pour votre sécurité, les sandales de type Flip flop sont à proscrire.

Génial Je recommande à 100% cette excursion avec deux guides géniales qui prennent le temps de vous expliquer et de vous faire découvrir les plus belles vues. La balade dans les grottes de benagil avec la traversée à la nage était super et très bien organisée, en sécurité!

Gorgeous! Amazing day. Walked around the cliffside, got inside Bengil Cave, got some lunch, relaxed on the beach, and did some incredible cliff jumps. Our guide, Rui, was perfect and knew exactly how to navigate the area. Very professional, would highly recommend!

Perfect day tour Booked on last minute as a solo traveller and it was the best decision I made while I was on my weekend getaway, the hosts and the other people on the tour were all amazing and the whole experience from swimming to Benagil cave to cliff jumping was 10/10, would highly recommend to anyone travelling in Faro!

Une journée d'exception ❤️ Une journée inoubliable. Nous avons visité des lieux improbables que nous n'aurions pas pu faire seuls. Deux superbes guides merci à Mathilde et Juliana pour leurs explications et leur patience. Nous avons pris le temps à chaque arrêt pour admirer chaque prestige. Nous revenons de cette journée remplie de souvenirs. Un super moment en toute intimité vu que le groupe est limité à 8 personnes, certe de nationalités différentes et avec la même idée en tête : Vivre ce moment d'exception à 100%. Je ne suis habituellement pas une fan des visites guidées mais je recommande cette excursion.
