Travelled with my teenaged daughter. I appreciated William’s patience and knowledge. I appreciated communication by Carlos and really enjoyed being on the boat with other friendly people and visiting the islands.

3 Island trip
Pauline_M
, Apr 2022
From booking to the end of the trip this was 5 star. Communication prior was friendly and informative. On the day the guide Jose was knowledgeable on all areas of the national park and gave us a lot of information on the biodiversity. Also in many languages. The islands were beautiful and unspoilt. Definitely recommend and would have liked to stay longer! Even though I am not great on boats because you don't go out into the ocean that was great for me! If you are like me just give it a try you won't regret it!! Fabulous day out and would definitely recommend the 3 island trip to anyone

Perfect winter activity!

Perfect winter activity! Our guide was a local, knowledgeable, and very funny. We took us to the local spots for drinks and lunch. Great prices for lunch too. Seeing the cute little villas was our highlight. Note: In the off season, a lot on the islands are closed, and it isn’t crowded at all. It was too cold to swim, hot when sitting in the sun, and chilly on the boat, so bring layers.

Rio Formosa must do
Karen_D
, Nov 2021
It is November so really only two islands are done as the other is swim beach. We did Armona and Culatra. Culatra was amazing filled with fishermen, their boats and tools. The food was excellent as well. The guide included so many interesting facts while explaining seamlessly from French to English. A must do trip.

It was a wonderful experience with a nice guide called Diogo. We liked every island, but especially Farol. Such a beautiful gem.

Great

Enjoyed the boat trip and the beautiful islands. There was a drawback with the starting point - not clear explanation given where to go. I thought it was the car park (which I received the location), not looked properly at the photo which showed the starting point 1.5 km away.

a wonderful day

we were 6 passengers from 3 different countries on the trip. our host and captain was carlos. right from the start we felt welcome and valued. carlos has great knowledge about the delta, its wildlife and inhabitants, the history of the place and the best places to eat.the weather that day was variable and it could hve been a chilly and boring experience.but we were looked after with blankets and entertained with facts and sights by carlos. a great tour in the winter probably even better in the autumn and spring - whatever the weather, carlos is a fantastic guide and makes the trip worthwhile.

Agradável, mas faltou Armona!
Srgio_B
, Aug 2021
O Guia/Skyper chamado Luis foi muito simpático e agradável. No entanto não fomos visitar Armona, como era publicitado, talvez por termos saído 30 mim atrasados por estarmos a espera de duas pessoas. Fomos almoçar a um restaurante recomendado pela empresa, que nos deixou muito a desejar. Pedimos sardinhas e espadarte. As sardinhas eram minúsculas e o espadarte tinha um molho desnecessário nestes num bom peixes fresco. De resto o passeio foi muito agradável.
