    We had such a good time on this boat. Honestly I'm not a trip advisor person but I wanted to write this comment only because we had the best tour guide ever. Thanks Thomas for all the informations about the birds, the area, the jokes, and the good algarve traveling tips!

    Excellent trip. Guide, Tom, extremely knowledgeable and took us to see spoonbills, whimbrels, white storks amongst many other birds in the estuary. He explained the eco system of the estuary and how everything fitted together.

    We had some really good time on a boat and on an island later on. Our guide, Gonzalo, was great - very knowledgeable about the Ria Formosa park, birdlife and aquatic life. The island was a great place also - we were able to find a place on the beach with hardly anyone around.

    Tom (Cruise) our guide was informative and provided us with so much knowledge about the waterways, birds and marine life. He was the perfect guide, he also was able to talk about general travels and we found we had plenty in common to discuss. We will be back next year and hope
