If you get a chance this trip is amazing you go on a speed boat for up to 12 for 2hours for 25 euros each. They take you along the Algarve coast in and out of beautiful caves and grottos

We took the river trip to Silves and had a wonderful afternoon. The City was pretty but steep climb to the Castle. The boat trip was relaxing and the service by staff was outstanding. Would do this trip again

This was a most enjoyable trip, the guide was helpful and very knowledgable. We had some amazing views and photo opportunities. It was a glorious day which helped, and we had excellent seating. If you can afford it, go, it's good fun

You will be helped on and off the boat and I would consider this accessible for the majority of ability levels. We did not embark/disembark the boat any other time apart from the start and end of the tour.
