Good experience
, May 2019
The trip is great and the boat is adequate. The tour guide did his best to get around everyone and share information about the islands as we travelled, however there is no announcement systems so he travels round group to group to repeat the details. He was great at explaining the history and present day information once he became available. The stop over on Culatra and Aromona islands was lovely and we had a fantastic lunch. I would say the only improvement is he space available to visitors on the boat (somewhat limited outdoor) the boat is very small and when other boats passed by we commented that we had hoped to be on a similar vessel. That said it was cheaper, perfectly safe and enjoyable day.

Demasiado tiempo de navegación en el barco. El barco con poca visibilidad desde los asientos con lo que no puedes disfrutar del paisaje. La excursión era de 4 horas, una hora de navegación , una hora y media en isla Culatra, unos 20 minutos ida y otros 20 de vuelta andando si querías ir a la playa, un baño corriendo y vuelta para comer algo a todo correr para volver a coger el barco. Otra media hora de navegación y media hora en isla Armona.....y vuelta al embarcadero. Hubiera elegido otro tipo de excursión pero ya no quedaban plazas para la que nos hubiera gustado. El guía, Joao , muy agradable...explicó todo en Portugués, Francés y Español...los idiomas de la gente que ibamos en la excursión.
