Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Very pleasant boat ride on the solar powered boat up to Silves from Portimão. We were picked up in Alvor and dropped back home. Carlos and Louis were lovely hosts. Lunch was pretty good. All in all very enjoyable and relaxing. We would recommend it!

An excellent afternoon out to Silves on the river Arade trip. Plenty to eat and drink with great friendly hosts. Luis was full of information. 2 hour stop over in Silves. Thoroughly recommend this trip.

A very relaxing and enjoyable experience.
Good company, the captain’s wee anecdotes along the way, a good length of time to explore Silves then a lovely lunch on the way back finished off with the crews home-made liqueurs - Thoroughly recommend

We took the 14 person speed boat tour of the caves. The captain was very skilled at manoeuvring the boat in and out of the caves. The crew were friendly and gave an informative narrative of each cave and the local area. We booked the tour from the kiosk in Alvor which I would recommend you to do as they can tell you if the minimum of 8 people has been met and also which slots are available. They also picked us up promptly from our hotel and delivered us back too after the tour. We were escorted to the waiting boat in the Portimao harbour where we departed. For 30 euros each for a 2 hour tour was well worth it and a highlight to our holiday- well done Alvor Boat Trips!

Excellent trip, Carlos & Luis were Great Hosts, with a wealth of knowledge at the surrounding area & Portugal as a whole. BBQ chicken salad with Good Alentejo wine More than enough to eat & drink.

Great trip! An exciting speed boat ride out to sea, followed by a fabulous experience seeing dolphins in their natural environment. Our guides were very informative and knowledgeable. We saw so many dolphins and followed them so we were able watch them for some time. Felt so lucky to be able to watch the dolphins swim and jump out of the water in such a beautiful natural habitat.
An unforgettable experience!

Very good service and appreciation, well oiled machine.
Taken by road transport to catch boat from Portimao.
Good knowledge and understanding of area.
Only criticism would by the transit bus it in need of some TLC (broken seat back needs replaced) or invest in a newer model.
