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
