The highlight of our trip to Faro was the Kayak and the Sailing trip. We did plan in advance and Barbara was so helpful in clearing all our doubts and with the bookings. Unfortunately, the weather changed its mood and the day we booked the activities turned out to be raining cats and dogs. But, we were so looking forward... More

We took a 2 hour guided kayak tour in the Ria Formosa nature reserve last week and had the most wonderful time. The scenery is beautiful. Our guide told us all about the wildlife, plants and environmental issues and pointed out lots of birds that we would probably have missed on our own. It was the highlight of our holiday!... More

We saw many bird species. Armed with the knowledge of the guided tour, we then went on an unguided 4 hour tour of the Ria Formosa in a 2 man... More
