    Honestly this was our best day of our trip to the Algarve. My boyfriend and I were really looking forward to seeing the 16m year old caves but wanted to go on a tour with a small group so luckily I found this one. My partner was a little nervous as he’s not very confident in the sea (there is a short swim around the cove to access the cave) but Sebastian, our guide, was really good and helped with his confidence (turns out he’s ex-SAS so we’re good 😊). As soon as he picked us up he was so friendly, and gave us some great advice about where to go in Tavira (that’s where we we’re staying) once we got to the beach and parked up he gave us a short de-brief on safety in the sea and gave us our body boards, life jackets, fins and wetsuits - which were freshly washed and very clean, unlike other tours I have been on. We then made our way down onto the beach for our short swim around the cove and into the cave. The cave was insanely beautiful as expected where Sebastian helped us to take amazing photos for memories and the gram. We then had a lovely walk along the cliffs followed by 90 mins of chill-time to sunbathe on the beautiful beach nearby, grab some snacks and freshly squeezed orange juice or fruit from the food trucks. We were then dropped back to our meeting point safely. I would strongly recommend this trip to anyone looking to explore the Benagil caves and would rather experience a good swim instead of a tourist trap boat. Thanks for a great day Sebastian!

    The tour guide was awesome and overall the tour was very well thought out! Timing was great, and it allowed us to stop and take in the views as often as we wanted. The guide was also very nice and told us a lot of stories along the way. He also knew all the best places to take pictures.
