This was by far the best tour I have been on!! First, the customer service was top notch, nothing but the best from this company. Second, David and Diogo were amazing guides as well. Both guides wanted both my mother and I to have the most amazing day, and we did! I strongly recommend this tour to anyone and everyone! I wish I knew this company had other tours before I booked other tours!

Diogo was great! The sights were amazing! Definitely with the trip!
If you have the chance, definitely do this tour! The crystal clear water, fascinating history and stunning views are sure to capture your heart, like they did ours! The guides were fabulous, and we were even lucky enough to see a pod of dolphins on the way back. The most perfect day of our trip!!
So worth the money! Got picked up from my hotel and had a great drive with Gil telling us lots about the area. The island itself was beautiful and we had lots of time to explore before a guided trip around. Chose the glass bottom boat option and we were lucky enough to see an octopus. Would definitely recommend if you're looking to get out of Lisbon for a day.
Highly recommended! Joanna was great, informative and the tour was excellent. The boat ride was rough and that needs to be disclosed. A person with a delicate back, like me, can get hurt. The island is a must
I would highly recommend this trip. The driver Rui was very knowledgeable. On the way to Berlenga Grande he shared important information of places and monuments we passed by. Pick up time was perfect, everyone was picked up on time. Rui is a very friendly person, I would surely ask for him when booking this trip.
As for the day trip to Berlenga Grande, it was amazing! Very relaxing day, nice walk through the island. If your looking for something extra besides activities on the mainland, I would recommend taking a day out at sea to the Berlenga Grande Island.
This tour was amazing. There was a lot of walking uphill, but the gorgeous views made it easier. I would absolutely go back to the island, and our guides were great!
Amazing tour, knowledgable guides, and a very unique experience. Don't forget your sunscreen :
Awesome trip. Understand you will be in the open Atlantic and travel can be rough. Once there you will have lunch, a tour of the island and fun kayaking, swimming, and the option to go on a glass bottom boat tour. Nuno and David were great. Definately a different type of tour.
What a great experience. Something off the typical tourist path.
Our guides were brilliant, the whole trip was well organised and we had a great day! The island was beautiful!
Tour guide was fantastic, had some grateful conversations. The island is beautiful and well worth the trip!
Wonderful trip, laidback and very friendly tour guides, and definitely worth the money. Would not be as fun if you don't kayak! A trip to go on if you ever visit Lisbon.
Amazing! It was great, friendly people! They really made my day and my trip!!! They worry about you and try their best !!!
This is a beautiful island off the coast of Portugal. Worth the day trip. Believed to have once been connected to Canada. Yay Canada
Amazing experience - our tour guide was very knowledgeable. Would highly recommend this company.
It was a wondering trip. David was a great tour guide and was very informative. The island itself was fabulous, so much wonderful sights ranging from the cliff formations to the bundle of fishes swimming in the sea and the view from the top of the island. Unfortunately we went when the island local amenities were closed but overall the whole experience was worth it.
The boat trip from Peniche is an experience. If you suffer from heavy motion sickness then you need to take some medications before going as the boat ride is very rocky and is not for all but once your on the island you forget about that as you are memorized by the views.
Strong recommendation is to bring a wind breaker as the boat trip can get really cold due to the cold wind!
The guides were wonderful. The sights were amazing. Only a few notes: please include the following on special notes to guests: 1 tell them that the island is CASH-only and to bring plenty of it to buy lunch and snacks 2 tell them to bring a windbreaker for the boat ride over which is extremely windy and quite often very chilly.
This was a good break from city life. We enjoyed the quiet, natural scenery.
This was a great trip--but a few things could be improved----should have a central pick up point in Lisbon---we were picked up first and drove back and forward through Lisbon for 90 minutes as others weren't at their pick up point or the driver went to the wrong spot--we then had to drive at 140kph to try and get to our destination in time. The other bus and boat had been waiting for us for 45 minutes. Just a suggestion if you are scared of rough seas and sailing on fishing boats don't do this trip--many people were sea sick on the way out- 10 feet waves etc smashing against the boat--but the way back is much better with the waves pushing behind you--BUT once you are on the island every thing is fabulous.
Great tour, money well spent. Sights are unbelievable. I'd recommend checking the weather before you travel though, and packing a change of clothes and shoes accordingly. We were freezing on the boat ride thanks to unpredictably cold weather and very choppy waters in the summer month of august. Otherwise, totally worth it!
Nuna A our skilled guide who was very caring and positive, picked us up at our apartment in the Alfama district. During the one hour drive to Peniche the group discussed the landscape and Portugal in general. In Peniche we boarded the boat Julian with it's captain Julio wolf of the sea. 50 minutes later we got on shore at the islands of Berlenga Grande Island. We hade about 2,5 h to spend on our own time which was quite perfect. And extensive and a bit adventurous tour across the island. We can highly recommend it.
Great tour, boat ride to the island is choppy as hell if you are prone to sea sickness do not take this tour on a day with wild weather! Ride back is much easier, and the island is paradise! Guides were fantastic and really wanted us to have a great experience. Bring cash for food and souvenirs.
a good day for sea air and swimming but not much to be learned culturally.Personally I enjoyed myself and snorkelled with a shoal of grey mullet. Food on the island incredibly overpriced as there is no competition.Our guide was very tired on the way back and not wanting to answer any questions.
